We had an absolutely amazing meal at Shokunin. We were treated to a wonderful evening dining at the chefs table which allowed us to watch all of the outstanding food get prepared. Everyone we encountered provided exemplary service and was able to help us with our selection for the evening. The drinks were fantastic along with every item we ate. We will definitely be back and would absolutely recommend Shokunin

Great food overall. All skewers were tasty and were able to try some unique things, and were relatively inexpensive. Only minor miss was the risotto portion of the mushroom special - wasn't as tasty as everything else on the dish. The restaurant was also pretty noisy, but tolerable.

We were celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary. The couple to our right were visiting from out of town and on our left we’re celebrating a sixtieth birthday. The food was exquisite, and Jiwon and Joseph both took outstanding care of us!

Excellent service and excellent food. Experience walking in is a bit peculiar though, hostess is turning her back to you as she tries to organize her tables... I know room is lacking, but having us face us would increase the initial experience.

The staff were very courteous to our changing schedule when we were forced to change the party size and the time a couple of times throughout the night. When we arrived, we were greeted with some of the best Chicken we have ever had, along with high-class Ramen, desserts, and shareables. The only problem with the place is their choice in music and the volume of said music as it is often very loud and racy. Besides that, the food and service was the best I have experienced in Calgary.

Absolutely outstanding service and food. We ordered quite a few things from the menu and it would be hard to select a favorite. The staff was detailed in describing various dishes and sake selections, and even gave us complimentary sake and dessert at the end of our meal. Can't recommend this place highly enough. Let your server guide you in your selections - ours did a great job!

Everything about the meal was absolutely wonderful! Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and made some great suggestions, and the food was amazing! I’m so glad we decided not to skip dessert, the matcha tiramisu was unbelievable.

Shokunin serves up a number of innovative takes on traditional Japanese dishes, but the restaurant really makes full use of the humble chicken. The restaurant’s yakitori menu includes chicken hearts, chicken necks, chicken skin and, most surprisingly and deliciously, crispy chicken butts.
