Service at the bar was great. Both chefs work quickly in concert with each other and are very courteous. We had the chef's menu, Japanese style, and each dish was delicious and well thought out. Very fresh seafood. The sushi boat that came to our neighbours was massive. The vibe and ambiance were great. Left feeling very satisfied but not overfull, and the price is quite good considering the high quality. Best sushi I've had in a very long time, and many dishes likely would not be found outside of Vancouver or Japan.

Nice little restaurant within the hotel. Food and service was very attentive. It is tucked away in the basement but worth the detour. Décor could be upgraded.

We recently visited Samurai for a birthday dinner. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's! The service from all three staff (Ross, Frank and James) was amazing, attentive and professional. The quality of the food is out of this world, hands down some of the best quality sushi in Canada. A big thank you to all the staff and the Sushi chefs for a truly memorable evening.

We found this little gem while staying at the hotel, and are so glad we did. The environment is very quaint and we sat at the bar so we could watch them create our dinner. Everything was amazingly fresh for being so far inland, and the flavors and presentation were perfect. This is a place we will visit again for sure when we are back in Banff.

Amazing family dinner! Frank, our server, was wonderful. Very engaging and knowledgeable. The sushi was absolutely fresh and the Shabu Shabu was fun and delicious.
