We shared the White Tiger Roll (Baek Ho Kimbap), Crispy Tofu (Dubu Kimchi), and my friend also had the Oxtail Tortellini (Sogori Mandu) and all of it was delicious, thoughtful, and so beautiful. I can't wait to come back and try more food!

Food was quite tasty except service was intermittently slow. Waited over 10 mins between plates. This put damper on our evening. All of a sudden last 3 dishes came in at once after we complained. And the table next door to us was served well b4 us and they arrived after us. Very annoying especially since this was supposed to be a special occasion for our sons graduation celebration. Probably wouldn't go back here for a special occasion, but maybe for a casual one

The food at Anju is very good. It's a little on the pricey side but the portions are large. The waitress recommended 2 sharing plates per person, but with the three of us we would have been sufficient with 1 per person and one extra. Perhaps we are smaller eaters. The atmosphere is lively and fun. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for a quiet place to eat, it is quite noisy but it adds the the excitement of the atmosphere.

Overall, lovely dinner for Mother's Day. Great service and food recommendations by the waitress. I would highly recommend this recommend this restaurant. The food and service was fantastic!

The brussel sprouts, oxtail tortellini, and crispy tofu with kimchi were amazing. Wasn’t a huge fan of the squid ink fried rice because it was incredibly salty. We’ll be coming back to try more dishes!

Excellent food, well thought out. Service was wonderful, you could tell she loved what she was recommending and we always appreciate that. Food was well put together and packed with flavour. The oxtail tortellini was awesome and the pork belly crunchy tofu with kimchi was delicious. The dessert was the perfect way to finish off and looked like like a little piece of art with the pineapple flowers.

Can’t wait to go back and try more on their menu. Would love to see this concept in Edmonton!

Portions were much larger than we anticipated so we definitely ordered too much. Our server was so great. Knowledgeable in the dishes, and really was enthusiastic about the food there. We enjoyed his time, and he was always around but let us have our conversations.
Loved the space and the atmosphere. Would have scored the food higher but we were so gull we didn’t really get to enjoy the last two dishes lol.
Definitely going back!

Interesting food. Sort of small share type dishes. Everything was quite good, good enough that I'd return and recommend it to others. Don't really understand how food sequence is determined. The very last dish was one we ordered from appetizer section. Overall a decent experience.

Our first time at Anju, but not our last! This place is amazing. The food is full of flavour, and the cocktails are unique.

Four of us shared six plates: spare ribs, bi bim bap, lamb potstickers, brussel sprouts, oxtail ravioli, and 1/2 order of chicken waffles. There were no leftovers, but we were too full at the end for dessert.

All the food was excellent, with the brussel sprouts and bi bim bap being favourites. The chicken and waffles was the least favourite as it seemed out of place for a Korean restaurant. The waffles were a bit dry, but the chicken tasted like chicken made by a famous Colonel. Quite delicious - just out of place to the other flavours.

I was a little annoyed that our "still" water was charged on our bill at $1 each. I'm not sure any other restaurant charges for plain water. That was a bit of a cash grab.

Second time at Anju and tho the food is consistently really very good, we noticed the service is consistently really slow... as in 20mins for each drink to make it to the table after being ordered.

The restaurant itself is very inviting. The decor is nice and the ambience is very energetic. Now onto the food! We loved all the small plates. Tried the oxtail tortellini, chicken wings, white tiger roll and lamb dumplings. Absolutely delicious! Tofu would have been great too if they used soft silken tofu instead. And then all the large plates were a disappointment. We had the lettuce wraps, the traditional bossam is way better. The fusion they tried to do here did not work. Also the fried chicken was definitely burnt. The batter was so dark, I’m surprised they still served it. Left a really bitter taste in my mouth. And the curry ramen nest, we did not enjoy the crunchy ramen noodles that came with it. The flavor was good though. So definite some hits and misses.

Server was excellent. However, the food cane quite quickly and my wine took a long time, so I was nearly done eating by the time it came. By that point I was enjoying powerful food flavours that overpowered my wine and i didn’t even really want it.

Good was good but the sushi rice I found to be quite wet and mushy.
