One of the best places for dinner. We've been there a few times but didn't get to rate it until now. It's not a fancy place at all. Just A small cafe with good food, good service and good atmosphere. If you're hungry and you want a quicK delicious meal, this is the place to go. The sake is not... More

Had so far been disappointed with the quality of food during my stay in Calgary (having high-expectations of "authentic Alberta-meat"), but though this restaurant doesn't fall into that category, I sure am glad to have found this little restaurant on my last day in Calgary! My party and I were all extremely satisfied with our meals and the pleasant owner... More

I ate a late lunch at Cafe Momoko last week and it wasn't very nice. I came here only because of the good tripadvisor reviews, but all I found was below average, suburban, Americanized sushi. What a disappointment! The sashimi was chunky (blegghh!) not sliced delicately thin like it is supposed to be, so it was chewy. Yuk! Who likes... More

Thank you for your review Unfortunately, you did not like our way to prepare sashimi as big size The thing is most customer like bigger portion of fish than smaller I usually heard more than 90% of customer like enough portion size of fish when they are paying for Next time, you are dining for us in case, let us...

It's vogue to head downtown for sushi and it seems like the popularity of Japanese cuisine has landed many marginal sushi restaurants in suburbs. This really is a jewel in the suburbs. First of all Moon is an amazing fellow with a personality that fills the tiny strip mall space. He is warm welcoming and full of humour. I would... More

We were visiting Calgary over Christmas. It was Christmas eve and my wife and I had done a bit of shopping in the neighbourhood. It was time to have a bite to eat and, via text message, her son suggested Café Momoko. We went in and a table had just left and we were the only ones there. The owner... More

I'm glad I found this place for lunch. We were staying across from the COP and wanted to find a place close by for lunch without having to fight the Calgary traffic. This location works out really well. The restaurant is situated close to the cougar ridge neighbourhood. The place is small with quaint decor that's mix of Asian. Food... More

We recently visited Cafe momoko due to the positive reviews on trip advisor and were pleasantly surprised. I called to make reservations and travelled far away from my home to try this place and it was great. The owner greeted us and provided us with great service. The food was amazing and there are lots of selections between Korean and... More
