Food was good but not something I would return for. The place was empty for a mid week night and had a very sad atmosphere. I total server was a little scattered but the server that replaced the original was wonderful. Even went as far as to teach our table more about sake and the different types.

As always everything was excellent. The quality of the fish is great and the service spot on. This a family run restaurant that cares about providing its customers the best they can offer. Fully deserving to be one of OpenTables top 100 restaurants in Canada.

We always eat at Sukiyaki House when we visit Calgary. I have been a fan since the early 1980s at its original location. It was also the go to restaurant in the Bank nightclub. The food and the staff are the best! If you are dying for uni, this is the place. It usually comes in on Wednesdays and there should be enough for everyone unless I get there first!

The Best in Calgary. Japanese fish flown in daily. Great staff who care about their customers. Food is on point. Whiskey and Sake list great. It was a busy lunch rush in the restaurant today. But we were and are always treated like gold.

We would like to order the sukiyaki for dinner. But the server wasn’t so nice about that we didn’t put a note about ordering sukiyaki when we made reservations. There isn’t any sign and any sentence on the website or here about we need to tell the restaurant before. And at the end we need to wait another 20 mins to another table so we can have a pot for the sukiyaki. I would suggest the restaurant to either put a sign on the menu so people will know to tell the restaurant about it.

Everything was delicious, really fresh, beautifully presented, and served quickly. The tempura was perfect and plentiful, the rolls were great (the Stampede rolls were our favourite), and even the miso soup and salad that came with my awesome sashimi meal were excellent! The staff were very friendly too. We had wonderful time, we will be back for sure.

Everything, including the service and food quality was very good, but wasn't quite outstanding. It was very busy and loud, but that's the sign of a good restaurant at lunchtime. We never had to ask for anything from the servers, and the tea was always hot. Food quality versus value for the buck was good, but for the price, it wasn't quite there. All around, it was a very good experience and our first time there. We probably will be back.

Wait staff were outstanding, keeping fresh hot tea and water supplied throughout the meal. They were neither absent nor “in our face”, with just the right touch.

Food was excellent, a little more expensive than the chop sushi shops downtown, but you get what you pay for.

It was a little noisy for a business lunch given the very open atmosphere, but overall quite manageable. Would definitely go back

The food was good, but a little pricey. Service was ok.

This was by far the loudest restaurant that I have ever been and subsequently I will not be returning to this restaurant. This was a business lunch and both my customer and I were one step short of yelling at each other, exhausting.

First time here and it was a really great experience. We really wanted to try one of the pressed sushi’s on the menu but it was sold out. Our server asked us what type of fish we would like to see on pressed sushi and asked the chef if he could make it for us. Sure enough he did! Was not expecting that at all, very accommodating and nice atmosphere all around. The servers were very attentive. There wasn’t one dish that we were unsatisfied with. Highly recommend!

Should advice customer on fresh items that have been sold out or non available as per menu sheet. Substitute without notice is not a good practice.

Great food, friendly staff, nice clean bathroom. The only problem is they are always under staffed. They have one poor server running around trying to keep everyone happy. Good luck getting a refill on your drink or anything aside from your first order. Make sure you have a checklist of what you need so you get it on the first order.
