We’ve eaten here on many occasions and would rate it as one of the best places to eat in Banff! Easily the best curry and hands down the best service you’ll receive anywhere in town! Tons of vegetarian options too which is a plus.

Like others we ordered off the menu. Wish we were there now - food is amazing. Also, for us, the service was great...very polite, accommodating (let us change our table so we could sit by the window) and friendly.
