I'd heard many great things about this place since the spring, so I finally went a few weeks ago and it was great. there was a very large group of us and the service was great. our food came out in great time, and it was fantastic! I got the butter chicken. the naan bread is also great, it was soft and yummy. I plan to go back soon! good pricing as well.

“Curry & more”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

This new restaurant is only 7 minutes from downtown Canmore and well worth the short drive. Entering, you are enveloped in complex aromas of Indian spices in a cozy warm dining room. The four different curry entrees we ordered were served individually in bowls on plates with rice and cucumber onion salad. It was easy to pass the bowls around family style so each could be enjoyed by all. While much of the menu is Indian they also do a burger and fish and chips. The list of beers is short but perfectly complementary to the food. Service is relaxed & friendly and knowledgeable.
Dinner for 4 including drinks & dessert under $110.

“A bit of India in Dead Man's Flats”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Would you expect to find fine Indian food next to the gas station at Dead Man's Flats? We wouldn't have if we hadn't read about the Junction House in the local paper. These people have been producing Indian food for the Canmore farmers' market and other outlets for some time, and now they have their own place. We visited before the official opening, but even then the food was delightful. Indian friends agree that it's nicely done and exceeds their expectations. There's more than curry available: you can have steak, pulled pork , burgers and that sort of thing. We had butter chicken and the daily curry, both really nicely spiced - to our hotness specifications - and tasty. Next time I want to try the Indian poutine.

“So happy to find”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Came across Russel Donald wonderful spice kits at the farmer market in Canmore and wanted to purchase some more but was not going to be in town on Thursday so after googling his name to find out where else he sold, we were delighted to find he has The Junction house. Absolutely wonderful food, I cannot praise it enough. Our friends who are local to Canmore were also very happy not to have to travel far for fabulous Indian food. Both Russel and his wife were so very kind and welcoming, we will be returning for sure on our next trip to Canmore.

“Fantastic curries”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Visited the restaurant about 6 tImes during our stay in Canmore & tried all the curries. I've eaten loads of curries in England, lots of the on the 'famous' curry mile in Rusholme, Manchester, & I can say without doubt that The Junction House curries are by far the best I've ever had ! And don't get me started on the samosas - you've got to try the beef ones, absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend a visit, it's a great restaurant, with excellent food & a lovely relaxed atmosphere. I'll be back :)
