I requested a table for six so we could include a high chair with the sitting, but they said nothing was available. Our reservation was for 5:30p.m. and not one table was used that whole time while we were squishing into the booth.

Anju is in the top 5 of our favourite restaurants and the regular menu is always incredible! We just weren’t too impressed with the dine out menu. It Didn’t seem up to par with what we had expected for the pricing. We also tipped the server a generous 20% on our bill and she openly made a face of disgust within our range of sight. We will of course be back just wasn’t too impressed with this last visit.

Enjoying a weekend away to Calgary and had a fantastic experience! Loved the crispy tofu, spring rolls, Brussels sprouts and mussels (soaked up with toasted garlic sourdough). Server was excellent, as was the welcome hostess table. Super ambiance with a good crowd and contemporary interior. Would definitely recommend to others.

Service started off slower than we would have liked as it took 10 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink or appetizer. We started off with the KFC chicken sliders which were completely raw. Not slightly pink I mean spit on the table raw.

Date night ruined. Service wasn't great even after the incident.

We had a guest dinning with us that has an allergy to nuts. She told the server upon ordering that she has an allergy. The server said no problem. We got one dish that was fine then the next dish that came out we put a small portion on all of our plates and had begun to eat when the server came order and said oh by the way that dish has cashews in it. My friend with the allergy immediately spit out the food and her mouth began to swell. She server did go get Benadryl from the back so my friend could have one. They took the dish away but left the contaminated plate. The manager came over and was mildly apologetic. My friend was fine because she thankfully hadn’t swallowed the food it was just in her mouth. But was feeling very nervous to eat anything else for fear of dying. The rest of the dishes came and were enjoyed by the rest of the table. My poor friend was so upset and scared she couldnt eat anymore food. The restaurant didn’t handle the situations very well and processed to ignore our table for the rest of the night. It was a very poor experience overall. I hope this restaurant doesn’t kill someone else in the future who has allergies.

Service was brutal. Was only served one dish, had to wait 15+ minutes for my dates meal. Waiter didn’t seem to care. Drinks also took a long time to come out. Food was good, but did not make up for the terrible service

First time experience- Drink menu was super cool and explained well. We tried the Brussel Sprouts which i thought i didn’t care for but when they are done properly sooo good. And the spicy peppers amazing.
Dinner we tried the Wagu Beef and the Soy Chicken which is huge!
Only disappointment was the dinner took way too long and we sat there for an hour so by the time it came we just tasted it. Supposedly training new people. But very poor timing!
We will return and try again. Ambience of restaurant is great for dinner or group.

Delicious brunch, great value and lovely ambience. I can imagine given the food that this place must get busy so if you’re looking for a quiet more intimate setting I would suggest going early for brunch. I’m very much looking forward to trying this restaurant again for dinner!

We enjoyed ANJU. On street parking. Pleasant surroundings. Attentive but not intrusive service. Delicious small plates to share with/among a friend(s). The brussel sprouts were a notable standout. Not inexpensive but definitely worth a visit ... or two.

Family celebration at Anju. Our first visit, and every dish as suggested was shared by all at the table and we all agreed that every dish was different from one another & exceptional in flavour, including coffee, tea, & deserts. The waitress was knowledgeable, helpful, kind, professional, & quick. The music was mod. loud with a good clear sound system. New music, not annoying pop. The atmosphere was modern, calm and warm. What more can you ask for. Already recommended to many friends.

Worth trying. The food and the drinks were delicious, no problems there.

The room we were seated in was very loud due to it being full of people talking. It was hard to speak with the server because it was so loud. Half way through dinner, the fire alarm system went off . The audible portion went away eventually, but the strobing lights remained.

The dinner would have been reasonably priced IF the ambiance wasn't so loud/distracting. Because the ambiance was not ideal, I would say the entire experience was overpriced and value was not great.

We braved a bitter cold Alberta night to dine at Anju and it was worth every cold, arctic shiver. Everything was exceptional with the brussels sprouts and charred peppers our favorites. As good as anything in San Francisco or Portland.

This was our second time at Anju. First time was 2 yrs ago. Our first visit was not impressive as the noise level was over the top and the food was ok but the portions were small. This second visit was quieter as it was SuperBowl Sunday and it was -27C outside . Service was outstanding and attentive. Food was above average although 2 dishes were very salty. Desserts were delicious.
