We were creating our own foodie tour and Anju was on our list. Had a tiger roll and was very yummy - perfect for sharing.

Server was not very helpful or friendly. It was very loud, and hard to hear each other.

Kathy, the host, was an absolute delight. I am so happy to have met her. She is so professional but is so welcoming and warm at the same time. Honestly an amazing dining experience only made better thanks to Kathy’s hospitality!

Sad to say I was dissapointed with our last visit to Anju. We used to love this restaurant, perhaps it was a bad day. It seems like the flavours aren't as good as before. Still good, just not great

Really great place for brunch, the staff was friendly and helpful however found the server was a little slow (took 20 minutes to pay our bill after we received it, got a coffee and took 5 minutes to get sugar/cream for the coffee)

Atmosphere is good, every server was kind and food is also good. But music was little bit loud so its hard to talk with my friend.

It’s great, but how does charging $1 for tap water help reduce your carbon footprint?

Our server was helpful but I believe the restaurant was understaffed. Our drink order took about 30 minutes. There were plenty of apologies about the delays. The food was very good but again very delayed. The noise level was so loud that we sat in silence a lot of the time.

Loved the brussel sprouts which other people have commented on, but for me the king oyster mushroom dish and the black cod were stellar. The one drawback was the noise in the restaurant. My ears are still ringing.

Yes, I would recommend the place however some dishes are a bit expensive for what you get and not that tasty. I feel like I should had to do a better research on the plates in order to don't get disappointed when they arrive. Also the desserts were not that good. But the service was amazing, our waiter was above and beyond with the service and they took me to the table right away even though I arrived early so I appreciate that.

Simply too loud on a Friday night. No design consideration for managing noise. Will not book again on a weekend for this reason alone.

Always great food and service here! Was even better as it was not overly busy so the noise level that you normally get during a busy time was not there...perfect business lunch setting!!

Service was not good and it was far too loud in the restaurant to sustain conversation. Food was delicious and volume good but overall not as impressive as the hype.

Everything was excellent ... food outstanding , the service was excellent but the music was loud. We came early when not very many patrons were there and the music was already at a level where we had to speak up. As the restaurant filled up, because of the music level, everyone was talking louder and the restaurant became very noisy.
I will definitely return because the reason you go out for dinner... the FOOD. And here at Anju it was outstanding.

Came here for brunch and I was not disappointed! The Fried Chicken Eggs Benedict was really good and the Kimchi Hollandaise was a nice kick. This was my first time here and I'm really glad I decided to stop by for brunch. I'll definitely be back soon for dinner!

Absolutely amazing food quality, service and overall atmosphere! Would definitely come again and recommend Anju to my friends and family. Bruce was so polite, knowledgeable of the menu and excellent in his service. He was very sociable, wasn’t pushy at all and gave us time to enjoy our food. All the servers/hosts we came in contact with at the restaurant were amazing!

Took my boss and his wife. The combo of unique cocktails and absolutely delicious food was superb. I would truly recommend Anju for anyone who is looking for a foodie experience in a lively setting. The only minor concern was the noise level. Aside from that, Anju is a complete winner !

Anju's food never disappoints and because of this it's always a top choice when entertaining for work. This time however, service was surprisingly poor. I got the impression our waitress was quite new to this role in general and hasn't yet learned how to support without being intrusive (i.e. interrupting quite abruptly the table conversation as well as reaching across everyone to grab empty dishes etc. without any grace and while making quite a lot of noise.) We also waited a long time to order and receive drinks as well as food.

Won't hold it against them but highly recommend this waitress do more shadowing to learn the finer points of how to provide a great service experience.
