“Awesom Sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

As there are thousands of Japanese that come to Banff even year, it makes sense there needs to be an amazing sushi spot. And this is it. I even spent new years with 50 japanese here once! It was a blast. Fresh, good , real sushi.

“Arigato!! Loved it...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Yes, we were there three nights in a row..it can be quick if you want to eat at the bar and head over to the spa...or you can doddle and relax with some sake while ordering the sukiyaki (recommended)..very fresh fish daily shipped from Vancouver.

“Even if you don't like sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The service was very good. My wife loved the sushi and the hot plate do it your self meal was decent although it is quite expensive. A meal for 3 (1 child) cost about $140.00 including 2 beers.
I'd say it would be better for a couple sitting at the sushi bar as the restaurant itself is very plain.

“a little delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was a relaxed delight and a nice change in menu. Banff is heavy on steaks etc so some light sushi was just what we needed
