Globefish Marda Loop
- Address -2009 33rd Avenue SW
- Phone Number – 403-249-8866
Globefish in Marda Loop is by far the best of the three Globefish restaurants found in Calgary. Why?
It’s food tastes the best – plain and simple. Actually, Globefish is known for having some of the best sushi rolls in town.
My favourites are the rocky mountain roll, crispy spicy tuna roll, wrapture roll, crunch munch roll and crazy buster roll, although nearly anyone I’ve tried at Globefish Marda Loop over the years has been superb.
Inside you’ll find a much more cozy atmosphere than at the other two locations in the city that’s great for intimate one-on-one dates and / or conversations that need due care and attention. For more information be sure to check out our Globefish Marda Loop Calgary Sushi Review.

Tenshi Sushi has always been one of the top sushi restaurants in Calgary because of its use of high quality ingredients and large serving sizes every time.
Located in the Kensington District, this best Calgary sushi restaurant is easily accessed on foot via the Sunnyside LRT Station and to all residents in the nearby areas.
A reservation is highly recommended as its popularity is widespread throughout the city; definitely try some sashimi of your liking and the house special roll. Stay tuned for our Tenshi Sushi Calgary Restaurant Review.
- Address – 806 Crowfoot Crescent NW

Sushi Boat’s take on service is one of the most interesting there is in the city. You can either straight from your server, or simply grab color-coded plates of sushi and other Japanese cuisines as they float around in boats along the perimeter of the kitchen.
One great thing about this Japanese restaurant is that it doesn’t skimp on ingredient quality just to make a buck. The food is relatively affordable, comes fresh and tastes as good as some other restaurants on our list of best Calgary sushi restaurants!
Sushi Boat tends to be quite busy so its recommended to go at non-peak times as they don’t take reservations. Stay tuned for our Sushi Boat Calgary Restaurant Review.
- Address – 727 5th Avenue SW
- Phone Number – 403-233-0605
Sushi Hiro is the perfect restaurant for those in the downtown commercial core of Calgary who are looking for something new and personable.
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 classical sushi rolls and sashimi slices 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. Stay tuned for our Sushi Hiro Calgary Restaurant Review.
