Cocktail Bar
Where boozy cocktails flow to old-school beats, and a modern and rebellious take on Asian eats, serve up good times with mastery. Tucked away a stride from 17th Avenue's nightlife, our intimate and urban space welcomes you all night and late-night. Our little-but-loud menu puts a boldly flavourful, yet nourishing spin on Korean and Taiwanese bites - all starring local ingredients and the beloved bao bun. Pair it with best in the city sake list and our curated cocktails and bow down to the bao with your inner Sensei.

    We visited during Golden Hour. The food was great and the drinks were fantastic as well. I received a call in advance to advise me of the offering during Golden Hour. We were also running late from our dinner reservation and when I call to advise, they were extremely understanding and accommodating.

    I had the yyc food expo menu and the strip loin was cooked to perfection and I love all the flavors that were mixed on this plate. I enjoyed the ube/purple yam croquetas and also the appetizer was really good, I liked how the cod was crispy on the outside. Service was pefect too, servers are really nice and I had a good table because I could see the kitchen. I love the ambience! Would love to go back and try other dishes.

    As always, Sensai has amazing Asian fusion. We introduced friends to the restaurant and they were blown away by the quality, quantity and taste of all the food and cocktails. The music volume was perfect for ambiance and conversation and we had a new treat of sparkling sake that was a perfect starter. If you’ve ever wondered about trying sake this is the place to indulge with Amani and the rest of the folks at Sensai ready to start you on that journey. Thank you for another fabulous dining experience!

    I recently visited the establishment to experience their YYC Expo dinner set. The appetizer, the tempura cod hand rolls, was generously portioned with an abundance of rice, which, although flavorful, proved quite filling. Moving on to the second course, while the striploin exhibited satisfactory flavour, its side texture was notably sinewy. Additionally, the initial enjoyment of the fried yam ball was overshadowed by its subsequent dryness, rendering it challenging to consume more than one. As for dessert, the blueberry yuzu tart left something to be desired; an enhancement in presentation and flavour profile could elevate its appeal.

    Fave restaurant in the city. The food is always so good and so is the service. The brussel sprouts are to die for as well as the chicken lollipops!
