The sukiyaki was great. The waiting staff was pleasant. The setting is intimate. Perfect after a long day.

“Great Sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We had a great Sushi dinner here. I would strongly recommend reservations well in advance, it's very small and walk ins are next to impossible.

“Excellent Japanese Food / Sushi in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Small restaurant in the Banff Springs Hotel. Wonderful service. Can recommend several of the appetizers: the miso soup, the edamame, the gomae, vegetable tempura, the grilled sablefish, and the tuna tataki (more peppered than I have seen elsewhere). Delicious fresh sushi negiri: tuna, salmon, hamachi. The spicy tuna roll was also great!

“Omakase me”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Simply the best in Banff. Let the Chef feed you and you'll always try something you've not had before. This is getting better and better all the time. I live in Banff and go as often as I can, which is never often enough. Samurai has "The taste.".
