Small genuine japanese restaurant that had 30 minutes waiting list due to tiny size. Once seated, we ordered ramen noodles courses; appetizers were out of stock as business was non-stop. Great tasting & absolutely delicious, wouldve ordered bigger portions if I could

Fantastic restaurant! The food are awesome! The service is nice. No very spacious, we waited for over 15min. It seems quite popular. Strongly recommend!

Small place with only few tables that you have to wait for you to be sat. But it is all worth it. The Japanese lady was so nice. My tantan men brought me back to Japan where I first had it. Yum!

very few tables and so compressed, like you could reach the food from the table beside you and you could even hear the story of the people seated at the end table. Foods are too expensive too.

There is nothing like some piping hot ramen after a long day of hiking. Chaya is small, with only about 6 small tables and they don't take reservations. What is nice, is they give you a slip of paper with the time to return and...More

Very small shop so seating is very limited. The food overall is average , neither good nor bad. If youre in the mood for ramen noodle soup, banff has very limited options. The miso ramen is a standard staple. A little on the pricier side....More
