Waitress recommended the majority of our dishes - they were delish. We had the Brussel sprouts, tortellini, KFC sliders and the rice bowl. Favourite item was the Brussel sprouts!

We celebrated a family birthday. It was a great, relaxing ambiance, a wide selection of menu items to share between the 5 of us. Limited vegetarian and vegan choices appearing on the menu but they catered to our needs.

Portions were small which is fine, but the price was high and the food was just okay. We were disappointed.

Haven't been there for a couple of years but was excited to go back. We were greatly warmly when we walked in but after being seated for our 630 reservation we literally were not served for 15 minutes. Once we ordered drinks that took another 10-12 minutes. Keep in mind the restaurant was about 50% full. We ordered a few appetizers, Gyoza and the KFC sliders. They were ok but nothing special. The sliders were tricky to eat without making a mess and came with the meat cold. I loved the vibe in there but will not be going back.

We really enjoyed the food, everything we ordered was amazing. The small plates are the way to go and the brussel sprouts will blow your mind. Our service however was not great. It started off pretty good and then our server seemed to forget about us for long periods of time when we wanted to order more food and drinks. That was disappointing as we might have spent more money if the server had been more attentive.

I have been to Anju before but it was a year or two ago. I have to say my memory was better than our experience this week. The service was friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere was pleasant enough. The food however was disappointing. We ordered the Chinese broccoli which was smothered in oil and butter. The rice bowl was ok, but the steak protein was mostly fat and gristle. I mentioned this to the server who commented that he has had the same comment before and would mention it to the kitchen. You would think that they would have addressed this issue. The sweet potato noodles were interesting, and a good dish I would recommend. We added the chicken to this dish which was a good choice.

Overall a disappointing experience, and probably wont be going back for another year or two.

If you are a foodie and around 30 years old this is the place to be. For a Monday it was full. We had the charred peppers and Oysters for starters. Enjoyed the flavours but they did not stand out. The roasted Black Cod was sooo tender but a very small portion for the price, flavours still needed a bit of spice. The Salt Spring mussels were a bit bland and the gravy was too thin as the mussels did not retain any of the flavour on the meat. The best dish was the Seafood Curry Ramen Nest. Full of flavour a reasonable size dish with lots of seafood. it was too bad it was not a wee bit larger as it had us wanting more. No dessert as we felt the flavour of the Curry was a nice finish. Expect to lay out a bit of cash as the expectation is to order about 4 dishes to share. Worth a try if you enjoy different foods.

Didn’t have the best experience. 2/3 had never been there and we just didn’t get much information on the best way to order our food. Best things to order. Portions for a shareable meal were small. Staff barely checked in.

A great lunch experience. Food, atmosphere and service excellent. My only constructive comments would be there pickles aren’t very good (pieces too large and salty) and the kimchi had virtually no heat. Overall everything we ate (several appetizers, two cocktails and so lunch dishes) were delicious.

This was my first experience dining at ANJU. I was introduced to it by a business colleague who said ANJU was his favorite because they also have an excellent compliment of vegan dishes.

The waiter was well informed and provided excellent suggestions for someone who has never eaten there before.

All round an excellent dining experience which is why I gave it a 5 STAR rating

I wanted to love it here. The food was mediocre at best and the server did not inform us that they charge for water. “Q water”? Give me a break! What a rip off and left a bad taste in my mouth. We won’t be back.

The food and service were both outstanding. We enjoyed a variety of the small plates which were all fantastic - the Oxtail Ravioli and Lamb Potstickers had such amazing flavours. The food was nicely timed so that we enjoyed each dishes flavours with our well paired wine. There was a nice atmosphere, lovely for an Anniversary dinner.

We went for the Feast of Fools - an all vegan 8-course meal. It was OUTSTANDING! It pleased and delighted even the heavy meat eaters. I’m desperately hoping Anju offers a plant-based accompanying menu soon like many other restaurants. Ah-mazing!!

The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate my gluten allergy with all but 3 of the menu items. It was pretty busy so the service was a little slower because it was a Friday night but it was definitely worth the wait. We will definitely be returning.
