Chaya was delicious. We ended up eating there twice while we were in Banff. We stumbled upon it while roaming the streets one night looking for a quick and cheap stop. This was a great find. We got the Katsu Don and Wonton Ramen. Both...More

A small unpretentious place for Japanese noodles, ramen and udon. Great spot for anyone looking for a quick, flavorful and inexpensive meal on Banff Avenue.
