Excellent price and great value for sushi boats during "happy hour" . The staff (specifically April) , are always pleasant and friendly. The place has a great vibe. Highly recommended :)

Came here on a Tuesday for lunch. Got a lunch special which includes teriyaki chicken, fried rice, miso soup, tempura, and 4 pieces of sushi roll for under $13 before tax and tips. Food was flavourful and the meal was large. The staff was courteous. Food arrived promptly. We did not get the usual wasabi and pickled ginger for our... More

Had nice sushi, a very good soup and good tempura. Food was fresh and plenty. Not to expensive, either.

Wouldn't rank it in my top picks for sushi, but a good place to grab a cheap and quick sit-down sushi. You can get a ton of food for 15$, and there is a sweet little candy bar on your way out that provides a wide assortment.

We went here late on a Friday night, it was our only option give the time and we had several of the special rolls. The Sushy is average, not terrible but not great. The service was ok too. We only go here for the convenience.

The food here is good but sometimes the service can be spotty. Lunch hour is pretty consistent but going there for dinner or late night you can expect to wait awhile for them to come and they will forget some of your items.

I have eaten a lot of sushi in Calgary and it is not always that great. Soggy, rubbery, bland, poor quality- I've had it all. Sakana Grill is none of these things. I have been here frequently over the past few years and each time I am blown away. I am hesitant to write a restaurant review as food is... More
