  • I heard a lot of good things about this restaurant from a few friends and decided to try it out to see what the hype was all about.  The hype is justified ... this is one of the best new restaurants I tried in a long time. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was prompt and very tasty. We had a variety of dishes and my absolute favorite was the black cod. It was tender, juicy and absolutely delicious. The jumbo beef rib was very good too. It wouldn't be a great first date dish as it's messy to eat but I'd still highly recommend it. We are already talking about when to go back.

  • I haven't been to the restaurant itself yet but the food I've ordered has been absolutely amazing. Most places I've ordered sashimi from seem to send the less than best stuff just because it's delivery but Ke always sends the most delicious salmon sashimi I've had in ages, just melts in your tongue and such gorgeous flavour <3 another favourite of mine is their geisha roll. hopefully I'll get a chance to actually go to the restaurant and thank them personally for such amazing food <3
  • Super delicious sushi and other food for decent price. We were so surprised to get a check for $150 for a party of 4 after trying almost everything from the menu including oysters and lots of sake.
  • We are originally from Vancouver and we were under impression that Vancouver has the best Japanese restaurant in Canada! We were absolutely wrong! Ke Charcoal is a hidden gem! Will be ourJapanese restaurant now on!
  • Good friendly service and great quality sushi. I believe their nigiri is some of the best is Calgary and well as their Osaka pressed sushi. Some of the rolls left a bit to be desired. Great prices too
  • Stellar all around. Food is unique and delicious, staff is amazing and attentive, atmosphere is excellent, and all around wonderful place. Even sitting at the bar I could watch them make and package the take out orders. I will have to order from them as they really take the time to prepare everything, clean the surfaces and knives. All very positive comments for Ke Charcoal Grill & Sushi.
  • By far the best service and best sushi I've had in Calgary. The staff was super friendly and the food was fast, fresh, and delicious. For a sushi nut, having this restaurant a few blocks away is going to be dangerous.

  • Unique atmosphere, great food. Good price for the quality as well. Would definitely come back again! Order the oshi rolls!
  • WHOA. Yum. Really great fusion sushi! We shared the yellowtail and ahi tuna carpaccio, wild salmon oshi sushi, spicy tuna oshi sushi, and a spicy crunch roll. The spicy oshi sushi was so fresh because of the jalapeño peppers on top, a very lovely way to have raw fish! Will come back again. 🙂

  • Our new favourite place...great sushi and great barbecued skewers. They have evening specials so we've headed back to try out their stone barbecue as well as take advantage of their excellent sake selection. Lots of fun to sit at the bar and watch the chefs in action
