Food in general was good, but nothing special. Soup was really good with burger. Cut of the calamari was very thick served with nice sauce. Service was not very attentive for the number of tables in the resturaunt

Although this restaurant didn’t initially look as welcoming and appealing as some of its neighbouring restaurants, the food and service made up for it. We had the special Thai curry cod. It was very tasty and good value for money. I was unable to finish...mine but was offered a box to take it away. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Would highly recommend this eatery.More

The food tastes great. It's a blend of Asian flavors with Canadian style which offers a great fusion variety. We had both lunch and dinner. It was very busy but we were offered a table not for a long wait. The price is also right....It is in center of downtown Banff. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. Will return next time we are in Banff.More

Stumbled upon this place then checked out the reviews! My husband and I were in Banff for two l nights. Our first night we wanted to eat in Banff town and we came across block. On entering the small inside area we were instantly greeted...by a welcoming staff member who sat us at two of the bar stools and said Reece would take care of us. Reeve certainly did just that. Making us some lovely G&Ts and took our food order. We went for six tapas (3 each) everyone was better than the other. What a great find. Food & Service Outstanding. We went in to recommend to other guest at our hotel and they too loved it!! If I’m the area again we will definitely return and would highly recommend 😀🇨🇦❤️More

Wonderful staff and service and the food was a delight. Haven't stopped recommending this great little place. We're hockey fans from UK and our lunch was cooked by Ryan Martinelli's brother (Belfast Giants)... if you're not into hockey you won't get it but if you...are, made our meal even better!More

Glad we found this place. It is a small establishment that serves amazing tapas. We tried their duck spring rolls, Asian lettuce wraps, and cheese croquettes. They were all so tasty! Fun place and great service!

Always a fantastic stop when we’re in Banff. I can’t recommend the cocktails enough, we’ve tried most of them and they’re all great. The tapas style food is outstanding, like the cocktails everything we’ve tried has been a delight.
