This place is a huge hit with my parents. So much that they started going every Thursday. When I go back to Calgary to visit them, we often eat at least once there. Our family used to go, as there weren’t that many sushi places in Calgary, and even today, compared to Vancouver, there isn’t a huge sushi scene.
You can figure out the price of the sushi by the colour of the plate their on.
- Green = $2.35
- Red = $3.35
- Blue = $3.85
- Silver $4.35
The cool thing as youngsters it the floating boats which carries the sushi around. Pretty cool! The water circulates and in a circle, and the boats move in one direction. For me, I usually take what’s on the boat. My parents on the other hand only come for the red tuna, which is a special order. If you’re also wanting something freshly made even though there are some on the boat, you can ask the staff.

The plates are colour coordinated and the menu indicates how much a certain colour (or design) costs. This is great because you get to try a whole bunch of things without having to commit to ordering a combo or rolls that come with 6-8 pieces. Here, it’s either 2 or 4.
I and my brother always finished with a bowl of udon when we were younger. Now, it seems like a waste to eat them when you’re at a sushi restaurant! However, I do remember the broth being pretty good. I’m not sure how sanitary it is to have all the wasabi and ginger on the table for people to use. I hope that people don’t use their own chopsticks or something and contaminate the box.
It’s reasonably priced and decent quality. Staff are quick and attentive. They used to have 30+ minutes wait time, but since a few other sushi places opened and Calgary economy hasn’t been all that good, they’ve been a bit slower. Definitely an unique sushi restaurant experience.
