Yokozuna in my opinion is one of the top sushi restaurants in Calgary and area.  A few of us are still debating which our favourite is and right now there is no clear winner.  Yokozuna is among the debate.  This past visit is probably the 4th time I’ve been there, I do love it because it is kid friendly and they have an excellent kids menu.  The sushi has always been fresh, clean and addictive.  The rolls are monsters and the twists they put on them is unbelievable.

They have a huge menu and it may take me a year or two to try everything which I’m looking forward to every minute of.  I always eat my staples every time I go for sushi, salmon nigiri, special scallop, and some unagi.  I still order it here but I feel guilty because there is going to be so much food on the table.
