    From the ambience to the excellent service and delicious food and drink selections, Hello Sunshine provided upscale sophistication without taking itself too seriously. The staff were outstanding, and the whole vibe of the place is hip and fun! Our dishes and cocktails were easily among the best we enjoyed on our trip to Jasper and Banff. We would definitely return!

    We were 3 and didn't have anything off the sushi menu so can't speak to that portion, but the Yakitori skewers & tempura shrimp (entrées), 5A Japanese wagyu steak, charcoal grilled teriyaki chicken and prime alberta ribeye were outstanding! The desert & whiskeys were also amazing. The decor is beautiful, the ambiance is lively & the service was great! A MUST when in Banff!

    Love the vibe and all the servers were very attentive and friendly. We booked a table but they moved us to the private karaoke room when another group cancelled. We had a blast. They just need a second microphone :(.

    If you like a lot of rice, this place is for you because EVERY order has 90%rice and 10% fish. Go to Shoku for better sushi. Thanks for our server to make it a little better.

    Celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary and had a delightful dinner and drinks. Atmosphere is very music centric. Food was tapas style which i love so I can enjoy many different items off the menu. We enjoyed the hello lobster roll, California and Rainbow press rolls along with their special flown in nigiri special fish option of the day. Enjoyed their margaritas, lycee martini, and Miso espresso martini for dessert. Make a reservation, this is a special place and not easy to walk in and not guaranteed to get a preferred table.

    Overall a good meal, everything was delicious. Selection of raw fish was fairly limited relative to what I'm used to (3 pressed rolls, 5? maki, 4 handrolls, maybe 6 Nigri/sashimi). Kabocha was great, eggplant was poor value but tasted good

    The atmosphere and food in Hello Sunshine are amazing. Their take on the Sushi Bar is modern and sophisticated. Their twists on classic dishes are welcome and the staff are fun and friendly. One thing we will ding them for is value. Hello Sunshine is definitely pricey but you do get some great things for that. Try it out. See what you think. You will have fun, eat some great food and learn some new things. It might just cosrt a bit more than you would have liked1

    Food was very good. Always skeptical about sushi in a mountain town but it was fresh with good flavor combinations. We had the scallop ceviche, yellowtail sashimi - which were good size pieces, seaweed salad, spicy ahi tuna and the California which was real snow crab. Along with outstanding service from River and a good playlist from the DJ, we had a great night at Hello Sunshine.

    I think it’s overpriced. I don’t mind to pay more for quality food but it wasn’t great at all. Very pricy snacks and the sizes are very very very small. The drinks are nice though.

Drinks were amazing (had the matcha colada and aprikot ale) food came fast (amazing deal on the happy hour ramen portions were huge) and all 4 of us girls purchased cool hello sunshine t shirts.

    The aburi sushi was very poorly done. The rice was hard and crunchy and the meat was not fresh and lacks flavor. The scallop and chicken skewers was great and very nicely matched with the sauce. The sablefish was also pretty decent but it's hard to go wrong with making that fish taste good. Our server, Victoria, was overly eager. She rushed us to order, asked us how our food was before we even had a bite, and clear my plate while I'm not done with it. While the food was just ok, I did not have a good experience with the service.

    Food was very expensive and of low quality, sushi was cut was very thick and some pieces were badly cut as well as being very expensive. Steak was fatty and not a good cut of meat for the price. A Miso soup was brought out cold. Bao buns were very dry and did not seem steamed fresh.

    Exceptional place. You definitely pay Banff prices ($18 for a regular sushi roll is obscene), but the quality makes it at least slightly more palatable.
