good japanese ramen/udon/ domburi for reasonable price. it's small with only about 6 tables, so expect a slight wait. almost all the customers were from Japan. pretty fast service once you order at the window after finding a table.

Great food in great price! The place is quite small and not with a lot of places to sit but we didn't wait at all ( a lot of their customers are for take-away). We took 2 great soaps - the dishes were quite big and very tasty. Strongly recommended !!!

I can't resist stopping by and having a meal in this restaurant every time I am in Banff. All the staff are Japanese which somehow ensure quality of food. Love the food here. My favourite is chicken udon. Don is also good but the sourced rice sometimes is a bit salty.
One thing that people have to tolerate is the tiny space of this place. There are about 20 seats for dining in. So waiting is usually expected or coming at non-peak hours for lunch or dinner e.g 5ish pm.

My hubby liked tan tan ramen and I chose ton katsu curry rice and katsu don while having lunch and dinner in Chaya. The restaurant is small and right next to McDonald on Banff Ave. If you like Japanese food and don't want to spend too much, Chaya is a good choice. It does accept credit card.

You will have to wait whenever you go... There are only 18 seats. They will tell you when to go back so you can walk around instead of waiting there. The noodles are really good, considering where it is. We went there for lunch twice. Will recommend to all my Asian friends.
