A word from Japonais Bistro
"Japonais" means Japanese in French [za.po.ne] Our focus is on modern Japanese cuisine with a touch of North American influence. We are located on Edmonton’s main street at Jasper Ave & 118 St. Japonais Bistro has created a Japanese dining experience to fit the lifestyle and feel of our city. We
provide a high-energy, aesthetically contemporary environment, serving inventive Japanese food, with lively music and have selected staff who are in love with the idea of serving their guests. Our chefs create innovative and tasty dishes designed to make your mouth water and inspire you to try something new. Our use of the very freshest ingredients from all corners of the world is a part of our dedication to offering you a unique experience every time you visit us. Key ingredients are flown directly from Japan. We consider sushi to be an art form, encompassing a delicate balance of elements and like all great art, each dish is created to order and presented with the attention to detail.

The portion is small, food is just
average and the price is higher than average."

My girlfriend and I eat here at
least twice per month, probably more like 5-6 times. Just can't get enough! Yam tempura, and a beer to start, and then followed up by 3 rolls, usually Golden Crunch, Halo, and TNT. We usually leave for just under $70. And if we skip the beer, it's pretty close to $50. The first bites always make me want to close my eyes and just enjoy, and when we're done, I'm always completely satisfied, and don't feel like I'm going to leave the restaurant fatter than when I came in. Service is always excellent, quick, and if you sit at the sushi bar, you can expect a freebie here and there! There are large tables for groups."

Very busy and bustling little
place, with friendly service. Be expected to wait, however, as the service is very slow. Also, there is almost no parking available. We really enjoyed every dish ordered, and our waitress had some great suggestions. I highly recommend the new-style sashimi!and"

Tuna tacos are delicious! I love
plum wine and they have a good variety. Lots of unique twists with Japanese favorites."
Dined on 3/16/2014
Love sushi, this restaurant has
the freshest seafood. All the items I ordered were created in perfection! Only thing id say was a disappointment was that I wasn't able to book a larger reservation due to the restaurants accommodations."
Dined on 3/15/2014
We went at 16:45, we were the only
2 people in there, so we sat at the sushi bar. The chef walked us theough everything everything even though he was clearly getting ready for the evening rush. Food was great, shashimi was so good. Will go again for sure, didnt care that we were the only ones there as it was a very personal experience."

My husband and I tried this
restaurant based on reading some positive reviews. We were not disappointed. Excellent and unique Japanese food, with very fresh ingredients. Tuna sashimi was melt in your mouth fresh. The menu was full of very interesting items and unique sushi maki rolls. The chili mango shrimp appetizer was delicious. We will definitely be back to try more of the diverse menu on offer."
Dined on 3/8/2014
Very fresh ingredients especially
the fish and tempura. Service was a little slow for lunch but there was only one server. Sake sampler was very tasty! Prices for lunch very reasonable but a bit high for dinner."

Outstanding food, good service,
creative menu. Have been back several times and will continue to go back. I'm impressed each time I go."
Dined on 2/1/2014
I tried the Chef's freshest fish
selection of sushi, sashimi, and maki. It's still the freshest fish I've had in Edmonton. You will be very full after this. The saki sampler was also a good idea because it didn't fill me up. The salmon is from Canada, the tuna from around the world and the rest from Japan. The only thing that could make it perfect would be if there was a low salt option soy sauce. Otherwise terrific food!"

Have been looking for a new
favorite Japanese restaurant and finally found it. The food and service were excellent. A lot of the dishes are original creations and are beautifully made. The traditional dishes, like tuna tataki, are also fabulous."

Spending two hours with girl

Great food, nice place, and the
best service I have experienced in Edmonton."

Went here for our Valentines Day
dinner. We did the 6 course meal with Saki and wine pairings. It was a fantastic meal and one of the best I have had in a long time."
Dined on 2/14/2014
As with other reviewers, the
service was terrible. We were seated a full 30min late. They kept apologizing for the wait but weren't willing to compensate us with anything. Not even a round if drinks which would've helped. The person apologizing claimed he didn't know where the manager was when asjed - in fact he said the manager wasn't there! Service was slow if at best once seated. Automatic gratuity was added - which sadly I guess explains the poor service in this case. Our drinks came out inconsistently with one person waiting 20 min for hers. Bill time, our server claimed we were $15 short! Def not! He wouldn't justify it and wasn't until we asked again to speak with the manager did he come back and say it was all good. Never again"
Dined on 2/1/2014
The yellowfin Tuna was the
freshest I've had. The traditional bento box was tasty all round and the best bento box in the city. The included maki and sushi are not bland like in many other places. The spring roll dessert was also excellent. This is another restaurant that doesn't add too much salt or sugar."
Dined on 1/25/2014
I dined with 3 others and ordered
grilled squid, sushi tortilla, vegetable tempura, deluxe sashimi, volcano roll, mango fry, ikura sushi and green tea/red bean mochi. The sashimi was FRESH. The sushi tortilla was an unique dish with crispy honey tortilla served with salmon/tuna sashimi, tomato, red onion, avocado and arugula. The vegetable tempura arrived hot. The squid was grilled perfectly. The seaweed was crispy with my ikura sushi. Overall the quality of the food and the service was excellent."

A little on the expensive side but
the food is always fresh. There are dishes that other Japanese restaurants don't have like the tuna nachos or new style roll. If you're looking for something different japonais bistro would be a good choice."

Innovative and delicious food.
Service leaves a bit to be desired. Wagyu beef appetizer wasn't fantastic for the price & portion size."

Yes we went back to Japonais
Bistro -- you know just to make sure it was consistent - this time in the evening - well it was great again we brought friends with us and they also loved it -- the plates presentation are fantastic -- really appealing and beautiful and everything are fresh and tasty -- This is now our new favorite sushi place in town .."

I eat a lot of sushi. I love it.
When I first looked at the menu, I went right to that section, but we decided to try a few different things and asked the server what her favourites were. The Prairie fire was great, and the mango one (can't remember name) was even better. I'd order two of those next time. The yellowtail appetizer was mediocre - would have been better raw and thinner. A warning for anyone who loves (or is afraid of ) jalapeños. They are on a few of the dishes but they lack any kick at all. They actaully have very little taste to them. So if you love a little spice you will be disappointed or if you worried about something being too hot with jalapeños they are not. Service was extremely good. I'd go back for sure."

We tried the $20 Omakase (ie. "up
to the chef) for lunch and it was incredibly delicious and an outstanding value! It gave the chefs a chance to showcase a few different items on the menu and next time I think I will request for some more off-menu type items to let them be really creative. The Omakase came out as a juiced up version of a bento box (the comparison is in the most complimentary way possible). Items included chicken karaage - ask for ginger dipping sauce, tuna tataki, seafood ceviche, 3 pieces of sashimi, miso soup, 2 raw oysters, HALF of a charbroiled yellow tail and rice. Presentation was very nice and great flavors through all the dishes. Highly recommend doing the lunch Omakase...call ahead so they can prepare for you."

Can't wait to go back. Nice room,
good service, great food!"
Dined on 10/20/2013
I was impressed with the amount of
different offerings on the menu. Plenty of dishes that I haven't tried along with a lot of more familiar options. More than enough to warrant a second visit. The service was excellent, and the food itself was very good. I particularly like the honey plum tuna and the beef tataki."
Dined on 10/11/2013
This place has some of the
freshest fish in the city. Though you may need to spend $100/person to feel full, I would recommend Ichiban and other sushi places for more regular meals. I started with the Tuna Tataki and continued with the sashimi and sushi which were very fresh. I ended with the standard chocolate cheese cake. I washed it down with a large Asahi. The notables were the Tuna Belly, Squid & eggs, and white tuna."
