Reviewed July 4, 2011

Consistently good sushi. Reasonably-priced. Good service. Wa's is great. I think the best sushi in Calgary.

“not for me”
Reviewed January 17, 2010

The staff is really friendly and my friend was lucky with his salmon but my chicken was uncoocked and I think the place is needing an update (hey buddies, hire an architect!).

“The best sushi in Calgary”
Reviewed January 3, 2010

The sushi here is the best, and cannot be compared to mediocre places like Sakana Grill. The sushi is fresh and most importantly, kept chilled, which I realise is not something many sushi places do in Calgary! I have never been disappointed. (P.S. To the reviewer who said their tuna arrived in a weird colour looking not fresh, actually the manager was right - tuna that is light pink, almost grey-pink in color is the best type of tuna sushi, much much tastier than the regular red tuna sushi!)

“Great sushi, real Japanese”
Reviewed October 24, 2009

It's nearly impossible to find a sushi place that's run and operated by Japanese folk in North America. It's mostly Chinese and Korean people that put their own interpretation on sushi. Having said that Wa's is the real deal. The rolls are skillfully put together and the sashimi is to die for. We also ordered the mixed tempura dish (Shrimp and Veggies) and that was delicious as well. Great friendly service. It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. Definitely better than the "all you can eat sushi joints" in Calgary.
