Located on the first floor of the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, and a bit out of the way, this restaurant offers a wide selection of Japanese food including sushi. There is a sushi bar as well as tables that have heating elements so that you can have table-cooked dishes like sukiyaki and shabu shabu. The waitstaff was professional and knowledgeable about the menu. Since this restaurant is small, I would recommend making reservations in advance.

We went as a family and enjoyed the sushi and Shabu Shabu. The service was really great and the food was delicious.The restaurant is small so I'd recommend making a reservation ahead of time. We had small children with us and they were very accommodating.

I stop by this place whenever I get a chance. Quality food, beautifully plated. Kind of hidden away with no views but the food is worth it

On our second night we dined at this Japanese restaurant. While it was small, we never felt crowded and were able to converse well while appropriate pleasant music played in the background.

Our host was James - he was most welcoming, helpful and entertaining. He was wonderful at guiding us through the menu choices, with the result being a most delicious and interesting meal. The seafood was exceptionally fresh, and expertly prepared and presented.

Our bottle of pinot noir was a most suitable accompaniment for the food. We also had a glass of Canadian ice wine with our desserts - a lovely finish to one of the best meals on our trip.

We would definitely return to eat at Samurai Sushi Bar & Restaurant if we are ever back at Banff.
