What a fun way to eat sushi! The customers sit around a waterway of sorts, and the various types of sushi come around on little boats. You choose what you want, and the cost is denoted by the different colored dishes. Really, really good and fresh sushi. The ambience is average, but one can easily overlook that.

The Sushi Boat delivers good sushi via floating boats that circle the small restaurant. Once you get seated the service is instant, but you usually have to wait a few minutes before being seated as the restaurant is always busy. The restaurant is a little noisy, but the food is good and it's a fun place to share a meal.

I live in the are, and have regularly gone to Sushi Boat once a week on average for the past 4 years or so. While you may not get inventive fusion rolls or a large selection of hot food, the prices are decent for sushi in Calgary, and the sushi is almost always fresh and well-made (I had to send back an order of tuna sashimi once that tasted a bit off, and it was not a problem to swap it for another dish) The staff are always polite and accommodating, and the service is swift. The wait for a table can be long at times, but usually if you go right later in the evening after 7pm, it's not bad at all.

Also, if you request a type of sushi that is not on the menu or the boats (but that you have had at the restaurant previously, like the super delicious salmon tempura roll), the sushi chefs may be willing to prepare it for you, all you have to do is ask!

Best thing about the restaurant is the atmosphere which actually has a sushi boat going around a moat next to the tables.

Good selection of sushi and other dishes can be made to order as well as take out.

I would go back.

Sushi boat is fun, but there is quite a limited selection of sushi on the little boats.They seem to load up the boats with only 2 or 3 different dishes at a time. It takes 20 minutes to half an hour for the selection to change significantly. If you're looking for something different you can order from the menu, but it takes quite a while to get the food compared to other sushi restaurants. The tables are a bit small and can get a bit cramped as the empty plates pile up.

Vegetarian items are sometimes available on the boats, but I'd recommend to ordering from the menu to make sure that you get enough to eat. The quality of the food is good and the atmosphere is pretty neat. Expect to wait 15 to 20 minutes for a table on the weekends.
