“A bargain - for Banff prices”
Reviewed July 27, 2014

Dining in Banff is very expensive, so this place is a great find. It is a very tiny place next to the McDonalds. This is a Japanese restaurant, not Chinese as stated by a previous reviewer. This is not a fancy restaurant but basically a noodle shop. But a good one. There were a number of Japanese clientele. We had chicken soba, edamame, and gyoza which came to $32 for two which is cheap for Banff. Servings were pretty good size.

“Spicy Udon”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Very tasty udon soup. Very spicy. Small place where you just can step in to grab something quick. Very reasonable prices. Worth to visit if you like Chinese kitchen.

“Excellent Udon”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

A small little noodle shop close to McDonalds. Very tasty soups and rice bowls. Definitely worth a visit and the place fills up very quickly.

Highlights are the soups. Very limited selection of sushi rolls.

“Great ramen at very low prices”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

Tan tan ramen to die for. Very good quality though prices are very low. Dinner for a family of 4 in C$60. Not so impressed with their beef curry. Better for eat in than carry out, didn't pack it very well. Sow up early though, gets full by 7 pm.

“Okay to eat”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We were recommended by a Japanese couple to this place. The price is okay and it is more like a mall kind of take out place. In addition, when we got there (around 7pm), there was no beef dishes/noodle. If you plan to go there, you may want to get there early to secure the kind of food you like.
