>>>best bang for your buck Sushi<<<

Best bang for the buck is a real judgment call, I don't skimp on sushi usually, here are some places to check out. You can check them on Yelp or Chowhound.

Imanas Tei, Tokkuri-Tei, Miyabi Sushi, Morio's Sushi Bistro, Mitch's Fish Market, Sushi Izakaya Gaku, Yohei Sushi Restaurant, Kona Kai, Yanagi Sushi and Sushi ii.

Sushi Izakaya Gaku and Morio's are my favorites, TA HNL restaurant guru Amberloo favors Sushi ii.

If you want Japanese beyond sushi look at Ichiriki, Yaki Yaki Miwa, Jinroku and Okonomiyaki Chibo.

I answered Korean and Thai in your other thread on Thai. Do you get any Vietnamese in Alberta? If not, give a try to Pho Bistro 2, Pho Minh Thu or Pho to Chau (lunch only).

I was at Pho To Chau a few weeks ago. I find that they are not as good as before.

The posted opening hour is 8:30, but they open when they are ready, which typically is closer to 9. Note that they close when they run out of the broth.

They sometimes decide to not open for a day but do not post that on their door to alert customers. You just get there and they are not open and there are no signs telling you anything.

They now put in a lot more noodles in their bowl so there are a lot less soup. Let's face it, the key of the pho is in the soup, I'm not there to just get filled up with noodles, I want more soup like they did before.

They now charge close to $10 for the largest bowl, which just a couple of years ago was about $7. So it is no longer the value it used to be.

The only saving grace is that they still provide the most amount of veggies for you to put in your pho.

Hmm... now that I wrote this all out I might as well post it to the review section as well.

In my opinion, the best bang for your buck sushi place would be Imanas Tei. Seem like the prices were very good for the excellent quality. Never been disappointed there.
