One of the newest and most exciting sushi restaurants in Calgary, Zushi offers a chef-driven inside of a market.

The menu items are extremely fresh, from the te-maki to the tataki, but we suggest checking out the omakase bar. Be sure to make a reservation because this spot is small, which always feels like an extremely authentic experience.
