When we arrived the tiny restaurant was full. There is no room to wait. We were given a little piece of parer and told to come back in 5 minutes. On the paper it gave us a time to arrive and 5 minutes grace, after...More

Chaya was a great surprise for me and my parents. During our 6 days in Banff, we went three times to this place where I could remember my grandma's fresh, simple and tasty food. It's a not a place to chill and spend time eating...More

If you love ramen you should definitely check this place out. They have multiple flavours and you can add extra items to each dish if you would like. We ordered the BBQ pork ramen and added wontons. The food is really flavoursome and a lovely...More
