“Believe the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Well, ate there twice in 2 days since it was that good. Not much else to say, it's all been said. Staff is wicked. The food admittedly came a bit slow both times, but with patience will come quality. Best vegetarian resto I've ever eaten at. Food porn. You owe it to yourself, if you're a foodie, to visit this place. The plates come out one at a time, so everyone can share each plate before the next arrives. Great idea cuz you'll want to try everything. Burrito might have been my fave. If you visit the website everything you see looks exactly like that. Just beautiful! And really not overpriced in my opinion. Many of the dishes have half or full option. Serving sizes are good so get n-1 dishes where n is the number of people you are with.

“Best meal in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I found this place on trip advisor and decided to check it out after having such a disappointing experience at Ticino. This place will change your view on vegetarian food! My husband is a carnivore but could not stop complimenting the food after every few bites. And he asked to come back for lunch a couple days later! It's a tiny little restaurant on the 2nd floor of Sundance mall, on Banff Ave. You would have to look for it. The waiters are friendly but nonintrusive. The dishes come in very large portion. A half order will be more than enough to share between 2 people. My husband and I had (in 2 visits) the Golden Beets soup, the Gazpacho, the Kingkong noodles, the mushroom ravioli, the falafel and the wild berry pie. Every bite was delicious!

“Best meal of our life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went in February 2013 and we had an amazing experience. The two guys serving we're personable and very helpful. We ordered the King Kong noodles (I think that's what they were called) and my husband got the specials the beet soup and daily curry. Everything was delicious. We had apple pie for dessert which my husband hailed (and he eats a lot of pie) the best pie he's ever eaten. As vegetarians it is great to have good tasting food and a lot of variety. WORTH THE VISIT

“Great food, great crew.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

Just ate at Nourish... These guys are food ninjas. Any non-believers in vegetarian food need to sit down at this place. Had the curry pot of the day, the burrito and the mushroom ravioli.

They nailed everything. The flavours were punch-you-in-the-mouth delicious and the portions were generous. Three dishes were more than enough for three people. Highly recommend the ravioli.

The crew was awesome as well. They were attentive but relaxed and really seemed to care about the customers and the food.

I have eaten at all kinds of restaurants all over the place. These guys do it right. Nourish is an amazing little place and is definitely worth a visit.

“Most mouthwatering dish ever- and I'm NOT a vegetarian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Oh mama! I just had the most ridiculously amazing wild mushroom ravioli!!!! The menu advertises it as the best ravioli you'll ever have and they were telling the truth! It was fabulous! And I'm not even a vegetarian! I will return just to have this dish again!
We also had the "Classic Nachos". They weren't classic at all! Who puts 27 ingredients in their nachos?- Nourish does!!!! An unexpected combination of ingredients makes these nachos surprising, yet delicious.
We recommend Nourish for the best lunch in Banff, vegetarian or not!
