Regina’s Best Sushi Restaurant Has Closed

We’ve lost Michi. From Facebook:

To Our Valued Patrons,

Due to a decrease in sales over the past few years, we have decided to close our doors as of June 13th, 2015. We want to thank you for your years of loyalty and patronage, as we have enjoyed being a part of the community for the last 12 years. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.

Michi Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar.

Well this sucks. I’ve never had sushi in Regina that touched Michi’s. Nothing’s even close. And Mich just won Best Sushi again, too (deservedly). If I’d known Michi was in danger of closing I’d have mobilized support. Hordes of sushi-fanatics would’ve been rallied. Shit. Shit. Shit. Now what? Anyone?

  1. That sucks. That quickie place in the mall probably swiped some business, and loss of film industry may have hurt, too.

  2. BTW, should be just about time for PDog’s “Best Vietnamese Restaurant” winner, Viet Thai, to close up shop for it’s 13-week summer vacation. Piece of advice: Check out Ngoc Ahn on Smith…intoxicating jinja bif, great beef curry, and of course, wor wonton so good it make you momma scream

  3. I’m fond of Sake. I had some off tuna at Michi’s once and never went back. I know it’s Saskatchewan, but. .. no to bad fish.

  4. Sake, that all you can eat place on Albert?

    Michi made a mean spider roll (deep fried soft shelled crab) and I still haven’t found a sunomono salad that holds up to their’s.

    What’s the name of that place in the east end the guy who used to work at Michi opened up called?

  5. Michi had great food and the lunch special was a great deal. But, I’ve been going to Sake for the last few years too. Very decent sushi as far as all you can eat goes. Probably made it pretty hard to compete.

  6. ENZO is the place to go. Everything there is amazing and is owned and operated by former Michi chef Kenta. I dare you to try and not think its the best in Regina.
