    Unfortunately the worst sushi I’ve ever eaten. The fish was old, rice was dense, and overall everything was lacking. Would not come back.

    We have visited twice in a week. Both time a great experience with superb, high quality food and drinks. Our server Ryan was amazing. We sat at the bar for the first time and in the booth the second time. The scallop carpaccio was fantastic, toro salmon delicious, other sashimi choices very fresh as well. We tested kobe beef prepared on the hot rock on the table and some hand rolled sushi. Both deserts were delicious. Great place for dinner, both times just excellent experience. Fast yet non intrusive service. Job very well done!!

    Everything was outstanding. The service ambiance and food were all amazing. We were a group of 4 and all loved the smoky margarita cocktail. The only dish we did not love was the lobster fried rice but it was still good. The chicken karaage, sushi rolls and ramen were all delicious. Would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend

    Second time here and will be back. Beautiful meal; the most fresh sushi and the ramen is so flavorful, a nice cocktail menu too with some fun choices. Gorgeous venue as well and the staff l are very friendly. Slightly pricey but not really for Banff, cheaper than many other places really. I never hesitate to pay good money for sushi too, and you get what you pay for its meticulously made and so fresh.

    We (parents and two teens) went for happy hour and made all our selections off their happy hour menu. Draft beer, Yazo Negroni (2), chicken ramen, spicy tuna roll (2), chef's roll (2), crispy avocado, and mango rolls. Everything was excellent and served at the right temp. The decor is stunning, even down to the table service. My *favorite* part might have been that the noise level was low enough that we could have an easy conversation. Jess was an excellent server. We would be very happy to go back. Reservation suggested.

    My spouse had a few rolls…..as per her “okay at best”….a little above a grocery store. I tried to order the steak and sushi. I explained that I could not have rice and asked to substitute for sashimi that was a lower price on the menu than the roll that came with the steak. Was told they could not do that….I asked why, he said because of cost….i mentioned that this was a lower price as per the menu and asked him to go ask the manager…..said he did and as a policy they don’t do substitutions. Literally blew my mind that they could not figure this out!
