...you find off the beaten track. Mad Dog serves wonderful curries and other dishes in a funky and friendly environment. Try the Three Curry sampler platter - avoid the overpriced places in Banff and eat hers!

Enjoyed the curry's (had the mixed platter and the winter vegetable curry was exceptional). Returned for the Chai Pancakes for breakfast - also a hit. Took home the Cardamom and Chocolate Chip cookies and also tasted the Oatmeal Raisin, both very good.
