“5 Star Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

When i got told I was being taken to a vegetarian resturant for our staff xmas meal I was not impressed! I'm a big meat eater and would never have dreamed of going to some place like this.
So glad I did...

The food is amazing!! The flavours and presentation are fantastic and the service is second to none. The dishes are huge so it's best to go with a big group so you can share the platters. The nachos are awesome, 27 toppings!!

Lovely cosy atmosphere, it's become one of my favourite restuarants in banff :)

“Best Vegetarian Food in Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Located in Sundance Mall on main Banff avenue, Nourish has a variety of vegetarian selection that will make you come again to taste the ones you missed the first time. Well presented sumptuous servings are very tasty and inviting to dig in to it immediately.

Tim Reid, who is energetic and enthusiastic to serve the food as quickly as he can says, Nourish is planning to expand and will move to a bigger place soon.

A place not to be missed when you are in Banff.

“Came from LA for amazing vegan food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Being from LA, it's difficult to be impressed by food in general, but vegan food especially but Nourish is amazing.

Let's start with the service: Towns filled with young, seasonal workers are usually lacking in this area but all of the staff at Nourish were friendly and very helpful.

To the food, holy crap!!! The Poutine is one of the best dishes i've ever had and getting it vegan with Daiya is tops. Everything here is very large servings so I recomend going back a few times to also try the portobella melts, nachos, and falafel.

“Vegetarian...Indian word for lousy hunter....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

most self-mocking of them to have this sticker on the wall. We had soup and a curry at lunch-time, food was lovely, very flavoursome and served with good grace. Good drinks both alc. and non-alc.The place is quite small, which is the only reason I gave it 4 marks. Book ahead and don't be put off by the grotty mall it is in. Portions are huge, one does two, even two Texans.

“Love it, Love it, Love it !!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Recently returned from trip to Banff and just had to share with all who visit tripadvisor how fabulous this uniqe Bistro was. First time in my life i have ever been asked by any eating establishment if i had any allergies, this is so that they could tailor make meals to the individual. The food was superb, fantastic idea of share meals, we ate things that we would not normally have tried. the food was perfect more than enough for 2, the staff are very friendly and welcoming, great value for money, superb atmosphere - will be the first place we will visit if we return to Banff again.
