About Us

Our Story

Welcome To kecharcoal Grill

The father of two children and husband to my beautiful wife, my passion for food began as a child watching my parents run a successful restaurant. 18 years later, I’ve encountered many mentors; however, my parents remain my number one inspiration.

Even as a child, I realized that good food and great service has the power to make people happy, and that is my vision for ke Charcoal. I want to share my passion and my unique take on Japanese cuisine, and use it to entertain our eclectic group of customers.

For first-timers to ke Charcoal, I recommend our Yakitori special. With the smoke from our charcoal grill and the succulent oils that drip onto the meat, it’ll feel like you’re in the heart of Shinjuku.

Thank you for visiting ke Charcoal, and we hope to see you again.

“A Great Find”

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. –

“Fabulous food & flawless service”

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!  ”

Ahmad

“Another successful experience”

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

Steven

“Speechless”

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.
