Japanese | Downtown, Calgary

If anyone rate this below 4 stars, they seriously have a problem or bias to this place. Went here for their 60 cents Takoyaki, but came out amazed with every other dishes we ordered. They have Japas (basically it’s Izakaya style) on Tuesday to Friday from 5pm to 9pm. Every single dish we ordered was made in DETAIL. They pay attention to every single detail and it is so delicious, presentation is excellent and on point. I highly recommend coming back to this place more than once! PS - I love their green tea beer!!! It was made with perfection although it’s just Sapporo with green tea! More

Very nice evening overall, would highly recommend :) More

We had a lovely table near the fireplace for breakfast. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience with jazz music playing at a low level, making it easy to cary on a conversation. Our server was very attentive and our food arrived promptly. While the food was tasty, the prices seem a little high, but not really surprising for this level of hotel. Overall, a great way to start the day. More

A girlfriend and I met for lunch and both had salads. My choice was the Cobb Salad which was massive and delicious. My girlfriend had the Caesar Salad with Blackened Chicken and spoke very highly of the dish. The Green Bean is a regular lunch location for me due to the fact that they consistently deliver high quality meals in a prompt manner allowing for the limitations of a normal 1 hour lunch timeframe.
