The usual great food and friendly, attentive service.
Great social distancing efforts as well.
Loved the calamari and the pressed salmon on rice. Edamame with anchovies lovely. Nice big booth and great server.
Service was prompt and attentive in just the right measure.
Japonais Bistro might have taken over as the premier sushi restaurant in Edmonton.
The food was well priced, very well presented, ample and above all, very tasty!
It would be nice if there was more Japanese cultural items to allow the guest to immerse themselves in a more authentic Japanese dining experience.
Overall? Very, very good and we'll be back very soon!
It was amazing!! Best sushi I've ever had. My parents and I come visit her every time they are in Edmonton. It's fresh, delicious, and the atmosphere is great.
We specified it was a birthday dinner but no on seems care. Service was good and the waitress is friendly. Food quality is fair overall but not a big fan to the beef tataki.
Waitress was poor. She didn’t explain menu items very well. Nor was she very personable. Didn’t come back to fill up tea pots. Food was amazing as always though. Chicken karrage and new style roll in particular. Good prices as there are specials for salmon on Tuesdays.
Very good food and service
Awesome food, good drinks, but certain menu items can be expensive for specialty items but well worth the experience
Had the Bento Box at lunch for approx $16 and then again for dinner for approx $26. At lunch you got soup, salad and the chance to choose what you wanted. For dinner, no soup, no salad and no choice of what you get. I specifically asked for no octopus but got it anyway and it wan't edible. So tough you couldn't chew it. The salmon and tuna shashimi were very good as the sushi & tempura. At dinner you get much less for a lot more money - good food but seemed pricey for sure. The steak cooked on the stone was excellent - the sauces were great. I would recommend lunch if you want a bigger bang for your buck - parking can be a challenge.
For dinner, it was our daughter's birthday so they did a special ice cream plate for her and decorated the plate beautifully. Our server was excellent and very attentive.
We love sushi and We tried a lot of Japanese restaurant in Edmonton. That is for sure the best . .the quality of the meal and how fresh the fish is at all time . The presentation appetizing .. . And great service .
Then food was delicious, i had the waygu and chu torro, although the wayguis only a2 plus it was still amazing. The price is on the higher side but you get what you pay for. The service was better than your typical sushi restaurant ( which i have come to accept is usually terrible ) so it was nice
Great sushi!! My favourite in Edmonton. I wrote a prior review where I was charged for extra items by mistake. The manager called me soon after I wrote my initial review, and offered me two rolls for free the next time I come. This was in November 2018. I went back yesterday in June 2019, and I told them about what the manager had offered me 7 months ago. I was pleasantly surprised to say that actually kept a record of my name and they did indeed honour the 2 free rolls. I’ll defiantly go back again.
Best sushi! Service was excellent. Personal but not intrusive from start to finish. Nice ambiance. We shared chef sushi platter and the banana spring roll dessert was so good! Will definitely be back.
Some of the best Sushi I have had in Edmonton and will gladly be back. Had 4 different Sushi dishes and was not disappointed in any. Especially thought the Love Crunch Sushi was outstanding.
Food and service was excellent as always. Prices have gone up and some portion sizes have gone down but overall it is an excellent restaurant.
Great food. A bit noisy.
Better fume exhaustion would be appreciated. I did arrive to the hotel room smelling like fried fish.
The food was good, but the service was terrible. 30 minutes for a drink because they had to change a soda tank. My dinner plate was on the table till after dessert and the bill, which was brought by our gum-chewing server.
Had a really poor experience - went here with a couple of friends for my birthday and had terrible service as well as poor recommendations. Couldn’t even order a drink before the server ran away And she seemed in a really bad mood and like we were an inconvenience. We all have worked in the service industry so we know we all have bad days, but this was really bad and I will never be back.
Food was great! Some very interesting menu items that are cooked on hot stone at the table. Sadly the service was extremely slow - understaffed for Mother’s Day - 3 servers for the whole restaurant. We waited WAY too long, and even though I understand one person can only do so much, the experience became a 3 star instead of 5 star!
Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to bring this to our attention. We always aim to deliver great experience with great food and it seems that we may have missed the mark on the service aspect that day. We will use this feedback to make us better and to ensure this doesn’t happen again in the future. Regards, Darlene
We made reservations and we were in front of the line but the host decided to help the people who did not book a reservation and seated them first.
It’s very loud in the restaurant; hard to hear conversations.
The food took at least 45 mins to prepare but was worth the wait.
Other than those issues, the food was all amazing and the waitress’ service was consistent throughout the meal.
Hi there, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is an uncommon instance and I have spoken to our team about this situation and how we should address this in future situations. Regards, Darlene
Went for lunch, Great service and always delicious food. Enjoyed this meal and will be back again soon!

Food was delicious as always. New style roll is our favourite, but prices are on the high side.
It's a very nice place, they offer a good variety of sushi and it tastes very good.
I am not a sushi / raw food guy, but this time I enjoyed eating here because the mix of flavors was fantastic.
Amazing food and great service. We had the TNT roll, Lobster cream udon and pressed salmon sushi...it was amazing.

First we have to wait 10 min for seating, even though we made reservation! One of waitress was busy to watch computer or ipad. Her service was very poor!
The portion of Sushi was too small & too expense! Too pricey & uni maki large sea weed, little more need rice! Decorate dish was unique!

Really enjoyed our platter as usual and can't go wrong with it also being Tuesday (buck a shuck) night.
My bonus-son and I had a fabulous dinner together as always at Japonais bistro. It is by far our favourite place for sushi in Edmonton.
Our favorite Japanese restaurant in Edmonton. We are always happy with the food and service. Our kids love the beef tenderloin on the hot rock and we love the variety of rolls and sushi.
Went on “Seafood Tuesday”. Oysters were lovely. Other dishes were interesting and delicious. Excellent service. Will definitely be going back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us this wonderful review :) Kind regards, Darlene

We were not initially greeted by a server after being sat and had to ask the host for a server after 15 minutes. After that everything was great though. Management offered us a complimentary dessert as an apology (although a manager never actually came to our table, this was relayed to us through our server). Our server was Junkyu and he was excellent! The food was delicious and came out fast.
