With lineups during lunch and dinner most days, Sushi Garden on Lougheed Highway next to Staples is a very busy restaurant. They serve delicious sushi with a good selection of rolls, nigiri, and sashimi.
The popular items at Sushi Garden are the sashimi and nigiri as the portion of fish is quite large. We tried the Salmon and Tuna Sashimi and loved it, as well as an assortment of Nigiri that included a very delicious Chopped Scallop. Other notable rolls that we liked were the Dynamite Roll, the Alaska Roll, and the Vegetable Roll, which was well balanced with mango and red pepper in it. It was amazing to watch the steady stream of Sashimi orders that were coming out from the kitchen as these dishes were obviously the most popular.
We decided to experiment and try one of the fancier rolls called the Island Roll, which has cooked tuna, fish flakes, and kiwi sauce in it. It tasted strange and we were not impressed, so it’s clear that sticking to generic sushi at Sushi Garden is the way to go.
The service was really quick overall, although it felt like we were being rushed through like a herd of cattle so they could free up the table for the next patrons. Within 5 minutes of sitting down and quickly browsing the menu, we had been asked 3 times if we were ready to order, service that is a little too good. With a restaurant this busy, it’s no wonder they have strict rules about not seating parties of 4 or more when not everyone is there.
Be very cautious of the parking spots and their labels in the lower parking lot as there is often someone ticketing vehicles who park in the Staples or Churches Chicken spots. To be certain, park in the lot on the roof.
The food at Sushi Garden is great and the service is good but get there early if you don’t want to wait, otherwise takeout might be a better option.
