Has anyone tried this place in Willow Park Village? Any thoughts or reviews?

    Over the years this place has gone down hill. The quality is not what it used to be. They do however have really cheap lunch specials that offer a lot more then just sushi. Not great, but for a cheap price....but if sushi is what you are looking for I would go else where

    *We stopped going there about 6 months ago after a very disappointing meal**

      I remember when it first opened it was one of the first sushi restaurants besides Sushi Tokyo in the south end of Calgary. They were not bad - like Tokyo in the way the lunches were decent, but dinner expensive. If you have a car or even a bus pass, I'd skip it. Even at it's best it wasn't remarkable in any way.

          One of my favorite Calgary restaurants continue to decline, what a shame. The food is good and it is solid but unspectacular.

          The Sushi Bar used to be the best in the city. Now the boats are empty, literally! I've cut back on going here a lot over the last two years. And the last 4-5 times I've gone here the boats are virtually empty or have the same 4 items and I have to order from the menu...kinda defeats the purpose...*sigh* what a shame.

          Time for a new sushi spot. Can anyone recommend a good sushi place in Calgary, perferably in the S.E.?

          Ya know, I wonder if reports of this place's downturn are due not to the fact that it's gotten worse, but the fact that there is so much better sushi in Calgary these days? I can remember liking Kyoto 17, which I now find pedestrian and way overpriced (not to mention dirty), but its competitors are just so much better than it, now....

            Good point - that makes sense. And I agree, I used to like Kyoto too. But that was when I first moved here and had nothing to compare it to other than the one, sigh, sushi restaurant in Lethbridge. Now I see it for what it really is (and likely always was) - a slightly dirty, slightly run down, totally average sushi joint.
