    Wonderful experience from the moment we stepped in to the moment we stepped out. Even when we were late to our reservation, they were able to think on their feed and find us a different table anyway. The service is great - staff are experienced, friendly, knowledgeable, and they support each other, which is a good sign. Food came out on time and was coursed appropriately. The drinks - they're really great, and there is something for everyone. We were happy with all the dishes we ordered. Its also beautiful inside and the music selection is solid.

    Greg was our server and did not make any food or drink recommendations. It took 35 minutes to get a drink which we ordered through the manager and we waited 30 minutes before he actually spoke to us. Greg did not smile and was not friendly at any point in the service. The reservation was booked almost 2 months in advance, yet we were given the worst table in the restaurant right at the open front door on a cold raining night which made us uncomfortably cold for the meal. The food was good but service was slow and when employees brought us food they dumped it on the table and would not tell us which dish it was.

    Great food quality. A few dishes were too much sauce or too salty, like the Wagyu beef. The quality of the beef is there but just too salty. The chef's roll, recommended by our server, was not as good as expected because the other rolls we ordered tasted better. The crispy rice is awesome. My suggestion is that simple is better when you already work with good quality ingredients. Our server was great and friendly. And the food was prepared fast, fresh, and promptly delivered, except for the drinks. We could see our drinks sitting on the counter for quite a long time before they were served. That's why it's about a 3.8/5 for us.

    We really enjoyed the sushi and Ramen, service was impeccable. This is not a kid friendly resutarnt in that the kids options are smothered in sauces and they don't offer standard Condiments (aka ketchup). We absolutely loved the atmosphere and will come here again, sans small children.

    This was the best experience! Our waitress was down to earth and spoke to us like human beings vs. fake conversation. Just when we thought we were ready to go, we would order something else because that’s how badly we wanted to stay. Great night. Can’t wait to reserve a room next time. Ps. If you’re used to being ripped off with the thinnest sashimi pieces….go here. The sashimi was not only unbelievable but huge pieces.

    The sushi was fantastic. We came for the 50% off deal from 4-5pm and tried all the roles on the half price list and they were delicious. Our server River was lovely. This is a great deal for two Banff locals who usually avoid eating out in the Bow Valley because it’s so expensive. We will definitely be back again soon and have recommended it to friends in the area!

    This place was hyped up from our family and friends but when we tried it, we felt like it didn’t live up to the hype. Ramen broth for the spicy pork was on the bland side, though the pork belly was awesome! The sushi was great as well but not for the expensive price they list it for only 6 pieces. Overall, nothing special but we were satisfied. Maybe we will try different dishes next time!

    The ambiance is very nice and the dining room is beautiful, our service was awesome. However, the value is not there as portions are small for the price paid. Everything was good, but not exceptional. If you’re mainly looking for a great ambiance I would definitely recommend this restaurant. If you’re a sushi fan and had great sushi before, don’t expect to be wowed.

    The sushi rice they serve is so mushy that makes the fresh toppings looks bad. The chef said that it is like that but we have been to Japan many times and tried many different types of sushi all over the world and have never come across such bad quality sushi rice. What they are serving at this restaurant is less than authentic. The rest of the food is so salty. We had to return our food and couldn't trust whatever else we order will be good.

    We spent 3 days en Banff and it was an absolutely shame to have discovered this restaurant the last day of our stay. Otherwise we will for sure repeat there! We ordered wagyu beef tataki, seaweed salad, miso soup everything amazing! But specially we love spicy miso king salmon press!! We love it. As main we shared magyu striploin 100% recommendable. As negative point the music volume is too high to have a normal conversation. Our waitress moved us to a less loudly table but still the music is too high.

    Food is always good and has always been good, but our server on my second time here was a bit dodgy. Firstly, he was way too fast with taking the plates away. While it may seem like a good thing, this made us feel rushed and he took some away even when there was a bit left on the plate that I would have liked to ingest. He almost took my friends sake away that still had a lot left in it! Secondly, when I was paying, after selecting the 15% option for the tip, he promptly asked me if there was something wrong with the service. This made me feel bad as I had felt I had tipped the right amount, and was being questioned about it. Other than that, everything was manageable, but some service issues made the experience questionable, and as such I am having trouble seeing myself go to this restaurant in the future.

    Fantastic! After a long day of travel, Sunshine was a positive, warm, and lovely introduction to Banff. We aren’t drinkers, so we ordered hot tea and had the best pot of herbal tea ever - Immunitea flavor. The whole experience was just wonderful. We’re a couple, but the patrons included friend groups, families, etc. Casual dress and excellent food.
