This is a great place for celiacs and those who dine with them. It's all gluten free and has a good selection of food. The servers are so friendly and helpful. The sushi was very tasty and the view from the balcony was an added...bonus.More

Without a doubt, my favorite spot to grab sushi in the Bow Valley. I literally drive 1hr to get here when I am craving sushi! The Spicy Tuna is my favourite, and the waitstaff is always incredibly kind!

Honestly, I read the reviews here thinking it was decent sushi - it wasn’t. I feel bad about this but don’t go for the sushi here, or maybe my standards are too high. It’s like they didn’t even use sushi rice. For anyone who’s had...T&T sushi in Canada - this is the same experience. Get other things, hopefully they are better, or don’t come at all.More

I read all the reviews about this place and I was so excited to pick this up on our way to banff for my husband who is celiac and we thought meh. Also thought it was pricey. We got 2 orders of ginger beef, 1...ginger chicken and 1 order of salad rolls and it was almost $70. The portion sizes were not huge either. I get it is dedicated gluten free but we were not blown away and my husband hasn't had ginger beef in 4.5 years.More

Amazing! Can’t say enough about the food and our server (Laura is our new bff). The 100% gluten free aspect was like utopia for one in our party. And I don’t eat seafood but still had plenty of options to enjoy. Laura made excellent recommendations....We enjoyed a menagerie of flavours for a great value price. The bbq pork slices were especially superb and the warmed saki was the best any of us had ever had. Definitely a stop to make while in Canmore.More

I was expecting an amazing meal based on these reviews. Unfortunately it was a huge let down. The staff seemed really kind but that’s about it. I spent $70 for half a cup of miso soup, 4 tempura pieces, ginger beef, and two 4 piece...rolls! The food was incredibly bland. The ginger beef was very dry and salty. Only received 3 pieces of ginger in each sushi container. I wonder if they were low because most places are generous with the ginger. The food definitely does not fit the price. Thankfully we weren’t all that hungry otherwise we would’ve had to spend extra elsewhere to be stuffed.More

We ordered sushi and Ginger beef to make a meal for two. Fantastic presentation. The staff were very friendly. We enjoyed every bite and highly recommend the dynamite roll. This prawns were large and in charge.

We were able to be seated on the balcony in a few minutes without reservations. The food was very tasty and unlike many sushi restaurants, the portions were a pretty good size. My companion and I shared an Atlantic lobster sushi roll to start, that...was great. Then he had fish and chips which he said were excellent, including the mango slaw, and really filled him up. I had another sushi roll and some tuna tataki which were both tasty, and also left me satisfied. Our server was very good. The price was reasonable for the quantity.More

Came to eat at this restaurant for its high reviews. We ordered miso soup, bbq pork salad roll, shrimp tempura, a taste of curry, Crispy salmon roll, beef tatarke, fish & chips and noodle soup. The miso soup was cold, the bbq pork salad didnt...really taste good. The beef tatarke was over cooked, salmon roll didnt taste good as well with the ginger. Just an over all disappointment considering the rating was 4.5. Friendly servers. Would not come back.More
