“All you can eat in 90 minutes?”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

All you can eat in 90 Min. would be great if they actually brought you food. We sat, ordered 3 reasonably small dishes of sushi. We promptly received our first dish, then almost 45 minutes past before the secound dish (of our original order) showed up. After another 20 minutes we decided we had had enough and left. They had no problem handing us a $99 bill for the two small dishes they served...which might have cost us $20 anywhere else.

Lots of great Sushi in Banff, avoid this place if you can.

“Good food, ok customer service”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Went here for Valentines Day and was able to make a reservation. It is a very small restaurant, and the ambience and decor leaves something to be desired.
The hostess and server were moderately friendly, but they could buff up on their customer service skills.
We had the all you can eat sushi, which was fantastic. It is a great price, but you do have to be careful of what you order because you will get charged for any leftovers. But they do allow you to order multiple times, so start small. As mentioned in other posts, you have 1hr and 50mins to eat the all you can eat sushi, and you do get a set of rules when you sit down for your meal.
Despite the service, I would recommend this placce for good, authentic, sushi.

“Good sushi buffet”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Priced at $25, we find the buffet spread quite worthy. Being Asians, it is gratifying to find restaurant that serves rice and soups similar to the way it serves back home. You can expect the usual sushi spread, as well as the sides like edamame beans, miso soup, tempura, plus the nigiri sushi, noodles etc.

good flavored and the raw stuff is fresh, which is impt. The place is not huge hence it's better attorney make reservations in advance especially when you visit during the peak season.

Time allocated for each round of buffet is 1hr50min, no food wastage as those will be charged.

Location is some distance at the quiet end of banff town. May need to walk if you are staying near the central town area...

“Worth the price! Will coming again and again!”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

For just $25 you can eat all tpyes of sushi, roll and tempura on the menu. The selections were good enough. Besides sushi and tempura some side dishes such as miso soup, udon, grilled salmon, rice.. are available. But the selections are limited. Children 5 under eat free. They will charge for leftover. So don't waste food! If you are a sushi person like me this is the place for you! Staffs are very friendly. Service is good. The restaurant is small but clean. Reservation is highly recommended! We saw them turned out 3 groups of people who did not have reservations. One last reminder: All You Can Eat serve only from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00p.m. They open for dinner only.

“Nice place, nice food, nice deal”
Reviewed February 12, 2011

Went for the $25 buffet & was suitable impressed. Food was lovely - you order it bit by bit & it's brought to you, including tempura, which is good.
Plenty of variety, left feeling full & satisfied.
