In the Midst of the Banff National Park
Visitors and tourists alike express both surprise and delight when they find out that there is an authentic Japanese restaurant at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. But for locals and frequent guests, the Samurai Sushi Bar and Restaurant is just an acknowledgement of the growing number of both Japanese tourists and Japanese workers in Banff. The popularity of Japanese cuisine, however, has made this restaurant a popular watering hole for international guests as well.
Hotpot Cooking and Ala Carte Offerings
Sushi is one of the major attractions of the Samurai Sushi Bar and Restaurant, as it has a large featured sushi bar where one can watch the sushi chef create Japanese sushi art. The Samurai Sushi Bar and Restaurant is relatively intimate, with a few tables equipped for hotpot shabu-shabu cooking. Customers can also order ala carte, with seafood and sukiyaki features on its menu.
Within the Castle Walls
Navigating the Victorian Castle that is Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel can both be a delight and an adventure, with so many labyrinth-like passageways that spring a surprise to the visitor. The Samurai Sushi Bar and Restaurant can be reached from the mezzanine Level 1 up the Grand Staircase, in close proximity to the spa and fitness centre. Call beforehand if you are coming in a group, as the Samurai Sushi Bar and Restaurant is only open for dinner on certain days.
