Sakana Grill offers reasonably good Japanese food in Calgary's Chinatown. Not the best in town but good sized portions of tasty fresh sushi and sashimi. Free house appetizers (California roll) started the meal at a recent lunch. Tempura shrimp were large, crunchy and hot - not all places offer that. Signature rolls offer added touches like mango and spicy sauces. Frozen grapes at the end are a nice touch as well. Service was acceptable but the Grill is in desperate need of a "Restaurant Makeover"; dark, dull and dreary inside with less than comfortable seating. But overall, a decent sushi feed at reasonable prices.

Unfortunately, I've been 3 times (never my initiative - always invited by friends) and I hope to never go back, mostly because the seats are extremely uncomfortable: hard wooden benches (without backs) that are way too deep (and I'm 6' 1")! The place is also dreary and the food isn't anything special. There are MANY other choices of sushi restaurants - go somewhere else!

Came here for late night teppanyaki. It was delcious, the server (hannah) was extremely accomodating, at one point she even took a picture of the ingriedients of the wasabi for me to make sure it was communicated clearly (I have a soy allergy...). I also couldnt have the reg salad they serve, and she was able to bring me a bowl of cucumber slices, like the tiny ones they put in sushi. The cucumber was top notch fresh, which I think bodes well for the rest of their food. They had a really nice selection of sake I would definitly go back there.

The sushi was good and priced well, not too expensive. Service was barely adequate and the place was not as clean as it should be.
