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 favourite place for fresh sushi in Canmore, and the people there are super friendly. Great food for a great price. Will not be disappointed!

We had 2 rolls; the spicy red tuna and their Green Planet roll (avocado, onion and mint leaf wrapped in a cabbage leaf. Both were quite good and the Green Planet roll wrapped in a cabbage leaf was quite different. Open 4pm to 10pm, closed Wednesdays

I love sushi as a random treat. Unfortunately the hours of operation are limited here as I've only eaten here twice in the past 4 years. Every other time I have gone it is closed. Otherwise the staff are great and the food is good!!
