I came in to order takeout and even though I didn't eat in the restaurant, I had a genuine experience nonetheless. You can tell the employees work very well as a team and the sushi chefs were very professional to watch. It's very rarely you get to see your food being prepared both in front of you and with such...

Went to Sushi Zipang for lunch today and enjoyed the experience. Servers were attentive without being intrusive and accommodated a gluten-free request with ease. The sushi was fresh, well presented and plentiful. I enjoyed a combo and loved my crispy salmon - done perfectly with a crispy crust and delicious dipping sauce. This is my go-to for sushi in Calgary.

I was informed that this was one of the best sushi places in Calgary. As for the quality of the food - sushi, yes it was very good. Portions were ample, and my wife and did not leave feeling hungry, after having ordered different sushi menus. The fish was very fresh, the wasabi was hot and the pieces were well... More

To each his own, but I don't understand the good reviews on this place. Best sushi in Calgary?? There's no way. Way overpriced, boring selection and small portions. Check out Sakana Grill in China Town, or Hana Sushi in Beltline. Way better quality and quantity. Sorry, this place is way overrated in my view. It is family friendly I will... More

Coming from Lower Mainland, we've been on the quest to finding good Japanese restos here in Calgary. It's a bit pricey (so does most places in Calgary anyway) but the food is worth it by Calgary sushi standards. We came closer to 8pm and the place was still packed. We had no reservation so we were sat by the bar.... More

Dropped in in December on the way back from Cochrane. Place was full so we sat at the bar. You really need a reservation for this place. Had all our favourites and then headed out into the extreme cold. Where we were seated, away from the door, was good. Good to ask for a table away from the door when... More

Calgary has a lot of sushi restaurants but perhaps due to the distance from the Ocean a lot of them are so-so in terms of fish freshness, or they focus on the fancy looking, big sauce covered sushi rolls rather than the fish. Zipang however is excellent. It is particularly a place for Sashimi lovers. The fish is always fresh... More

I fell for Zipang sushi bar the first time I visit my calgarian son and daughter-in-law a few years ago. I was of course overjoyed that we went there for my belated birthday dinner. Zipang was packed and queued with diners of all ages. Luckily we had reserved a table but still had to wait for some minutes for those... More

I went for a dinner with friends/business. Food was good, staff were efficient and unobtrusive. The restaurant was well lit and neat. It's a small cozy place. Standard sushi fare and more. Try it, you'll like it.
