We were feeling lazy and figured we'd stay at the hotel for dinner--didn't necessarily expect a transcendent culinary experience from this tiny sushi bar in the middle of the Canadian Rockies--but very pleasantly surprised to report this as our favorite dinner in Canada! The "winter special" was incredibly well priced, and provided so much food. Delicious sushi, tempura, sukiyaki. Service was also outstanding. Unforgettable dessert--plum wine sorbet w/ blood orange and carmelized cookie. Highly recommend!

Very small and reservations a must as it gets busy. No frills restaurant with a sushi bar attached. Excellent choice of sushi but a little limited on mains. Sabu-sabu very good. Not cheap but middle range.

Thank you for your great comments about your experience at Samurai Sushi. It is a small restaurant so we always recommend reservations. Great advice ;) We pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients and have our products flown in from Vancouver to ensure we receive the best products possible!

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

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.
