Love the staff at this place and the food is great. It is sushi in Canmore so don't expect it to be Vancouver but it's a great choice in this small mountain town. One of the better places in Canmore and very consistent.

Love the "local friendly" atmosphere. could be a bit pricey comparing to other establishment, but we pay for the quality and totally worth it!

It's the best Japanese restaurant ever! The food's tasty and looks attractive. The fish cut is accurately perfect. I can figure out how is prepared such magnificent food.

The food is good quality, but the service is brutal. Waited for food, waited for plates to be cleared, waited for bill. Unless you have a lot of patience, ho elsewhere.

My companion and I at there just a couple of days ago and I feel that the right thing to do is save you from the disaster that is their service.

Dinner. My wife is Japanese. Over the years my wife and I have dropped into this restaurant, and it's either great or really crappy. Yesterday: agedsahi tofu - sauce with no flavour, sticky coating; tempura - poor quality of batter - more like a fritter - yam undercooked/cold; teriyaki salmon quite disgusting/overly oily with a strange coating similar to the...
