Sukiyaki House Banff
Banff's enormous popularity with Japanese tourists has resulted in a plethora of great sushi restaurants. Sukiyaki House is one of the best and perhaps the most popular. The expansive dining room has stark white walls and bamboo accents, and the bright sushi bar overlooks the hubbub on Banff Avenue. The sushi here is the major draw, but the menu also features tempura, noodle dishes, soups, rice bowls and cook-it-yourself hot pots. Everything goes down nicely with some Japanese beer or sake.
I have had lots of sushi all over the world, including Japan, and while Sukiyaki is not THE best, it is easily comparable to the best I've had (in California and in Japan), and is well below the price I paid there! The restaurant is a regular favourite of ours, the selection is great, the sushi is very fresh and well done, and the prices are unbeatable. The service is usually VERY polite, though not always fast. The restaurant is very busy, and there is a very large Japanese clientele. A great place for groups, or just to have a regular orgy of cheap, excellent sushi/sashimi. The tempura is also excellent, done in a genuinely traditional way (very light). Don't miss this place if you are in Banff, and call ahead.
It's a nice restaurant. I've had almost every type of food on the menu, and everything was excellent except I would rate the sushi as just good. I could tell that is was not really fresh (Although I can't expect them to get fresh fish in the rockies every day). Overall I think the food was great. It was not a very fancy restaurant, it was pretty informal. In the peak season it is filled with about 80% Japanese tourists, so it can't be that bad.
great range of Japanese food for a single restaurant - Japanese usually specialize - they have sushi/shashimi, tempura, noodles, katsu and shabu shabu. The toro (expensive fatty tuna)was amazingly good for the middle of the rockies. Limited real sushi range though, but plently of Americana sushi - california rolls et al.
Reasonable ambience with some legs-under-mat tatami-style tables. We enjoyed it and heartily recommend it.
This was only the second time I've been to a Japanese restuarant. It's very clean and the waitresses are nice. They first bring up a bowl of soup and salad...Delicious!. The rest of the dinner was just as good. I prefer the..

-Chef's platter (different stuff)

I recommend making reservations.
