“Great Restaurant in Canmore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We really enjoyed our evening meal at Zonas. It had been a number of years since we were last there and we pleasantly surprised by the renovations carried out. We started with the homemade hummus which was more than adequate for two. I had the Mongolean lamb curry which was excellent. It contained plenty of lean meat and was very tasty. My wife had the chicken lasanga which she will have again.when we go to back to Zonas on our next trip to Canmore.The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

“Original food at a one of a kind place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I went to Zonas with a party of four as it had been recommended to us by one of the local residents. We weren't disappointed. To begin, you walk into Zonas and it has the feel that it was once a house, converted into a restaurant, The atmosphere/decor was is fun, eclectic and unique....much more interesting than any chain restaurant. We had the stuffed mushroom caps and ceaser salads to start. (This isn’t your traditional ceaser, the dressing has horseradish and is very flavourful so heads up on that if you don’t like horseradish). The service was fantastic and the waitress (only upon prompting) had lots of recommendations. In the end we had the beef tenderloin and the stuffed chicken. Not only were both meals very flavourful and delicious, the price was very reasonable. To finish, we had orange sorbet drizzled with chocolate and the cream brulee. The cream brulee was our favorite. Honestly, we had such a great experience, we would go here again in a heartbeat!

We enjoyed our dinner on the patio at Zona's. Be sure to order their yummy caesar salad. My husband loved his chicken lasagna and I enjoyed the Phuket Prawns. Their chocolate pecan pie is delicious and should not be missed - we shared a piece.

“Excellent innovative food for right price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

We went as a party of 10. The food is a fusion of Mediterranean, Indian, Asian and was excellent. The yogurt with maple syrup and toasted almonds is not only relatively healthy but very tasty and refreshing. I had the red ginger coconut bassa Phuket which was done very well and I was too full to finish. My husband had the curry lamb which was also great. My son is the one who remembered the restaurant from our last visit in Canmore and wanted to go back. Our other family members loved it also. The price for 10 ppl including non-alcoholic drinks, appetizers, salads, and dessert, tea was only $300 including tips so really worth it for the quality and quantity of food. The service was also great. The restaurant is named after the owner's grandmother and the owner, Chris, makes all his own plates which adds a unique homey feel to the whole experience.

“Authentic Well Prepared Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

What a great treat to eat food at a Restaurant , where the entire dish does not come from the fridges of a Cisco or Gordan Food Services truck. The quality of the food is really good, great atmosphere and the service is always friendly. This is one of our favorite hang out spots in Canmore. They know how to make a Real Mojito!
