    Really fun spot! We enjoyed every dish we got but especially Wagyu, Spicy carpaccio, and the scallop sashimi. Everything was really fresh, the service was great, and the design of the space is really cool. Would highly recommend this spot.

    The food and service were outstanding. Cocktails were pricey but tasty. We had spicy carpaccio for appetizers. Had Maui Wowie and the chef's rolls for sushi and the grilled teriyaki chicken. All were amazing. I wish I remembered our server's name but he was so attentive and fun to talk to. I would totally recommend this place. There's even happy hour from 4-5 for 50% on sushi so if you're on a budget, try going during this time.

    My second time at Hello Sunshine. First time was in the private Karaoke room which was fun and River the server really entertained us with good service and a song! Second dining was for their happy hour. Sushi was a really good deal at 50% off and delicious. My mom was wishing they had a happy hour wine special. We tried a few of the cocktail specials which was fun.

    Service was great, food and drinks were incredible. I was gutted they weren't able to do a vegan version of the veggie ramen (they use egg noodles and don't offer any substitutes) but the yam rolls made up for it! Overpriced but the same goes for all of Banff. This was our favorite restaurant of our stay

    This restaurant was amazing and really worth it. Some of the best sushi I’ve ever had ( and I’ve lived in Japan for 2 years)! The fish was so fresh and the portions generous. The shrimp tempura was excellent. I frankly was not expecting much (let’s face it, people don’t go to Banff for the restaurants), but this place could hold its own in New York, Toronto, or Tokyo for that matter.

    Good Sushi. Noise level a little too much for us but the crowd seemed to enjoy it. There was some confusion about orders as we kept getting served more rolls than we ordered. We just sent them back but seems a little more organization is in order to prevent this. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would recommend Hello Sunshine.
