towa sushi mission best calgary sushi restaurantTowa Mission

If you like big rolls and thick sashimi, then Towa is the Japanese restaurant for you! What’s important to note, however, is that Towa never sacrifices on quality; you just get a really good deal, and are really full by the end of your meal!

Towa recently redid its menu to a more simple version. We were a bit skeptical at first about the possibility of a new owner / chef, but then realized it was the same high quality sushi Towa is known for.

Unlike many other sushi restaurants in Calgary, Towa has a small patio section perfect for enjoying the outdoors while chomping down on some of the best sushi in Calgary.

Big Catch Sushibest sushi in calgary big catch rolls

This highly successful sushi restaurant on Macleod Trail has now expanded from its once small kiosk inside Market on Macleod into a full-sized restaurant. Its new location is now open for business!

We decided to check out its new location, and boy oh boy, we weren’t disappointed with our dining experience by any means. They even have kyoto-style (pressed) sushi here; I thought you can only find that in Vancouver and Japan!

Located at the Save on Foods shopping plaza, it’s presentation and quality ingredients are second to none in the city. Really, we mean it! The food is excellent, and so is the service. Hands down, this Japanese restaurant is quite the “big catch” in the south if you know what I mean!

Sushi Hiro JapaneseThe Best Calgary Sushi

Sushi Hiro is the perfect place to visit for those in the downtown core looking for good Japanese cuisine. Located on 5th Avenue between 6th and 7th Street SW on the southern side of the block, Hiro boasts traditional Japanese decor and some of the best classic sushi and sashimi in the city.

Sushi Hiro is run by Hiro and his family and they’re always working. I love the family touch and the fact that Hiro or his son are behind the sushi bar; you’re actually being served by the master chef! Go there and ask Hiro to try new and different types of sushi you have never had before – a great and adventurous way to eat sushi.

The fish is absolutely amazing and the entire experience has a very traditional and authentic feel to it. Definitely a good spot to go for some of the best sushi in Calgary in the downtown area!

Midori Japanese Cafebest sushi in calgary midori japanese cafe 17th avenue sw

Midori is an unsuspecting sushi restaurant found on the west end of the Red Mile in the Beltline. Walking in you’ll find a quant, traditional-like Japanese ambiance with limited seating; it’s one of those restaurants that you’ll have a hard time getting a table at during lunch or dinner rush.

Midori’s sashimi is quite fresh and the prices are very decent. Looking at the menu you’ll notice a large selection of appetiziers, rolls, sashimi and even some Korean dishes. We loved the friendly staff who did a great job of serving us over our near-three hour sushi social stint!

Misato Sushi & Grillbest japanese food in calgary southwest signal hill sirocco drive

One thing we loved about Misato in Signal Hill was its rolls. They are bigger than many other sushi restaurants and taste just as good as they look, ensuring you’re more than full (and delighted) after each visit.

The next time you’re in for some of the best sushi in southwest Calgary, make sure you check out Misato in the Sirocco Drive SW shopping plaza!

This best sushi restaurant in Calgary is an excellent place to drop in at with friends who may not like sushi and want something else. It’s also ideal for passerby’s on the TransCanada through Calgary. But come on… who doesn’t like sushi!?

Haru Sushi & Grillharu sushi best japanese restaurant southwest downtown calgary

Haru Sushi & Grill, although a chain restaurant, deserves credit where it’s due. With three locations around the city, it’s become known as one of the go-to restaurants for nigiri, sushi, sashimi, udon and other types of dishes.

We highly recommend checking out the downtown or westside locations. We’ve been to both and have been very pleased with not only our dining experience, but the overall quality and freshness of the food.

Kinjo Sushi & Grillbest japanese restaurants kinjo sushi bar and grill calgary

No one does it better than Kinjo when it comes to chain sushi restaurants. With four locations around the city, its popularity is testament to its success as one of the best Calgary sushi restaurants there is.

Kinjo is known for its affordable prices and large menu that gives customers a great selection of not just sushi, but other Japanese cuisine delights as well. We really love the location up on Coventry Hills near Deerfoot Trail. It’s excellent!

    Re: Sushi Hiro – I agree with everything you seem to be trying to say. It seems however that you left a word out of the review: check the second line, “You may have never noticed it was there but once you figure it out and go there you will be disappointed.”
    I assume you meant to say “you will NOT be disappointed”.

    I hope that’s what you meant to say. It’s hard to believe you really meant that you would be disappointed. We have never been disappointed there. My family has been going to HIro’s since the early ’80’s. It’s still the best in town. The fish is always fresh; the presentation is old style Japanese elegant; oysters and other delicacies are available in season; and they haven’t latched on to the mayonnaise based sushi. Don’t miss the Pine Mushroom Soup in the fall. And if they are open between Shristmas and New Year’s, try the special things they prepare. They are beautiful and tasty. Don’t be afraid to try something you’ve never had. Eating at Hiro’s can be an adventure. Let Hiro or Yoshi guide you. Just let them know you want something you’ve never had before.

    As you can see, we are among Hiro’s most faithful fans.

    Karen & Tony.

  2. Best Sushi in Calgary by far is Tenshi Sushi food is incredible, in fact the Miso Blackened Codo tasted as good as it did at Nobu in Waikiki (and the price is more reasonable than Globefish by far!
    Address: 304 10 Street Northwest, Calgary, AB T2N 1V8
    Phone:(403) 457-0370

    Hot stone rice bowl is fairly new, on 37th street a few blocks south of 17th ave. this place is incredible, the power of love roll and sushi pizza are amazing, and prices are great. I think this place is a hidden gem, considering it has a significantly higher rating on urban spoon than every restaurant listed (not to discount the quality of them, just sayin haha) PLEASE give this place a try!
