Very quick service and the udon soup is very good. It is freshly made and quaint. A great place to bring a friend. It is also rather on the small side but very nice.
Walking down main street waiting for our reservation at another restaurant, we found Chaya. It is super small, only has 20 chairs, but I am sure they could be much larger. When we asked for 10 seats, we were told not for an hour. When we said yes, it changed to 35 minutes, and then 15. So we were glad... More
The restaurant was small but tidy. You could make reservation after walk in ?! The food was tasty and inexpensive as compared with its quantity and quality. Rice, udon and soba noodles were available; lots of choices.
We stumbled across this modest noodle shop in the main street of Banff, and what a blessing it was. Fantastic, authentic Ramen noodles. It's quite busy, but run very efficiently. We fed a family of 4 (with 2 growing boys) for around $50. So if you are looking for a break from some of the more expensive and upmarket food... More
Saw the good reviews on trip advisors so decided to call in. It's a no frills go in, eat and leave. It was very busy on both our visits, but run very efficiently.

Firstly, the girl at the till messed up my order. I specifically asked for meat on the side, and it came IN the soup. Despite... More
We chanced upon this restaurant was we walked along Banff Avenue heading to the park. It is a small restaurant run by a family from Japan. The Ramen was prepared well and reasonable in price. The owner took time out to talk to us and tell us about coming to Canada from Japan. There were a few customers in the... More
We stopped at this tiny restaurant for lunch on a cold/wet day during a recent visit to Banff. The hot and tasty udon was just what we needed. It reminded us of food we'd eaten on a trip to Japan. Very tasty food and quick service. If you're looking for ambiance, this is not the place for you!
By chance, we came across this restaurant on our first day and it got us through all our long hikes on subsequent days. After hours of hiking, when we were still several miles from the trailhead, and our legs were getting weary, we just started thinking of dinner at Chaya (even though we kept telling ourselves we would try a...
