The service was poor and the food was ok. For the price point there are much better places in the city.

I order sliders and a Buddha beer as I sit down. Sparkling water is great, but need those sliders as soon as I come in.

It's pricey, especially given you can get real Korean food downtown for a third the the price, but it is so good.

The acoustics are loud, but the decor is what I wish my home could feel like.
Again delicious.

Anju did not disappoint! This is our go to restaurant, we have never had a bad experience here. This is the first time we brought our friends who have a gluten allergy and they were impressed that there were so many gluten free options that were delicious!

We ordered drinks then told our server to feed us and we enjoyed several delicious share plates over about an hour. Only complaint was service which was a bit slow given there were few diners. Still love Anju though, one of my favourites.

Each share plate was incredible and the combination made for an unforgettable evening, well accompanied by a BC Chardonay. Perfect end to our Alberta trip before returning to Toronto. Highly recommended.

We ordered the deep fried chicken skins and ox tail ravioli to start. They were delicious! My husband got the salt spring mussels which he said was good. I got the baked kimchi fried rice, which was alright.

The cocktails were outstanding.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the service. The waitress wasn’t very friendly. But we did show up 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated quite quickly.

To be honest, I went into this expecting the experience to be better than other less fancy Korean Restaurants, however it wasn’t really special. With exception of the drinks and environment I’d consider it average in terms of flavour and service.

Great food ... service was subpar. Waited for a few of our items and only when reminded did they arrive at our table. I’ve been before and always had great service, the food, drinks & company made up for the wait!

Service really lacked, we had to ask 4 different servers every time we needed something, and it was unclear as to who our actual server was.

Anju didn’t disappoint. The food and service were fantastic. I don’t think we were ready for the quantity of food and now know to bring more people. The restaurant staff were also super accommodating and held onto our reservation despite us saying we were running late. Definitely would go back.

I was charged $1 for a plastic container to take my sauce home. The sauce that came with my meal. I was not charged for my takeout container to take my left over food home from the meal that I paid for so why was I charged to take my sauce home? The trainee waiter did it. Trainees need to be trained better to not make such ridiculous mistakes. I disagree with being forced to pay tips just because my table had 6 people. Tips should be the discretion of the customer. If it's horrible service then zero tips should be given. There would be the same number of servers if my table was split up into 2 tables of 3 so forced tips makes absolutely no sense. The stools were difficult and uncomfortable to sit on. Thanks for the complimentary oysters but I won't be coming back and I definitely won't be recommending this restaurant to any of my friends or family.

Omg, the Summer Feast menu is outstanding! The tempura mushrooms were my favourite, I could have drank the vinegar sauce that accompanied them, that good! The skirt steak burrito was so fun and delicious with house made kimchi and the peach/pear dessert was so beautiful! Get it while you can!

Anju is hands down my favorite restaurant in the city. We always have an outstanding experience every time. The food is next level, the service is always great and the expediting of the food it’s always very quick even if the restaurant is full. Thank you for always providing us with an amazing experience!

Fantastic food, fun environment, good value, passionate server. Every dish was delicious, but the oxtail tortellini AND mussels really stood out. Definitely not "cheap", but it is great quality and it wasn't outrageously priced for dinner and drinks during a fancier night out.

This was our first visit to Anju and we were very impressed with everything. Our waitress was very pleasant and took time to explain everything to us, the surroundings are upscale and the food was terrific. Can’t say enough good things about this restaurant; we’ll definitely be going back and highly recommend.

I had expected significantly better Korean inspired fusion. The food was quite average with slow service and mediocre drinks. I would not recommend Anju to anyone or anticipate returning there.
