My husband and I loved this sushi lounge so much, we went twice during May long weekend! Tatiana, our server extraordinaire, was attentive and made great recommendations for us to try out. Loved the Sesame Chili Tofu and the Japanese "fondue"! Also, restaurant is VERY clean, which I find a rare thing in Canmore. We will definitely be back!

We are becoming Sushi fans! Very pleased with our visit again. Service was excellent and matched the quality of the food. Lovely view of the mountains.

Having been on Gluten Free, then AIP (auto-immune diet) for several years, the only reason I go to a restaurant is for a special family/friend occasion, as my choices are limited to salad and a basic protein. I asked for a gluten free menu. “It’s all gluten free, here.” our server, Greg declared. "I’m afraid all grains are off my... More

I respect fusion sushi restaurants, but the tempura shrimp roll was smothered in mayo, and the soft shell crab roll ($15!) hardly had any crab in it. Ambiance of the restaurant was weird. Staff were great.

The food is all gluten free - including home made sauces (that normally would contain gluten), as well as all of the "coatings". The food is fresh and made with love. The service is fantastic. It is owner operated and people friendly with attention to the smallest details.

Pan Asian menu with some twists. Friendly service. Everything on the menu is GF - makes it so easy for people with those issues. We've eaten here several times in the last 4 months. First three times were outstanding - prompt service, food was really really good and we left feeling very happy we had come to Wild Orchid again.... More

Most recent visit made us VERY happy with exquisitely prepared food choices: a couple different apps, green chilly chicken / brown rice dish, rice patty burger, saki and deserts. So nice to have 'clean' GF cuisine that IS tasty as basis of the menu, rather than as an afterthought as in so many establishments. Service satisfactory. HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOOD.

I could go on a long rant about what was bad about this place, but I'll keep it point form. - not tightly wrapped - pieces too big, required 2 bites (fell apart) - seaweed wrapper was very chewy - bland and tasteless - brutally slow I can't recommend this place at all, and will not be coming back.
