Weekend brunch at Redheads is always a hit - they serve karaage, katsu, rice burgers, sushi rolls, including brunch items such as french toast (MUST TRY) and eggs benedicts. This really is a must-try in my opinion and one that we'll always go back to!

My friends and I have been here a couple of times now, and each time we've received great service and delicious food. We come here for the weekend brunch, which is a great price for the amount and variety of food that is offered. The curry servings are generous for an AYCE, so we usually share them.

There is usually enough street parking near the restaurant. It's a small place, so try to make a reservation because they're usually busy on weekends.

Redhead’s Sunday brunch is one of our go-to’s. It’s delicious, very filling, has a good variety of options and quality is 👍. Make sure you reserve your spot because it’s almost always fully booked with no spot for walk-ins.

Foods are always okay at Redhead. But we found the service is getting worst then before. Maybe only one sever now and she is too busy. No smiles on her face and she seem so rush. Don’t feel like to go back as we don’t enjoy it much like before. I hope this can improve as we love this place.

Their food is amazing and the service is really good. I've been there for lunch, dinner and brunch, my favourite experience was dinner, with access to a lot of different "japas", but they're great at any time. I've never had Japanese curry before, but I'd say that I get a feeling of homemade food when I eat it, which is a good thing.

you can ask them to sort of customize your order for the AYCE brunch. example: japanese curry but no rice, avocado only pls. In short, you get what you want. It makes the brunch experience very satisfying.

Had the buffet Brunch at Redheads Japa Cafe on Saturday. It was amazing, the egg benny is one of the best I ever had. Make sure you make a reservation or you might not be able to get in.

Delicious food, attentive service, and probably one of the best Japanese curries I've had in Calgary aside from Japan. I've always wanted to try this place and it has not disappointed me. I would recommend this place alongside with getting their curry and look out for their awesome Happy Hour deals!

Service was great. Food is reasonably priced and had great flavour and taste. Reminded us of being in Japan, with a slight Western twist. Sesame ice cream was homemade and full of flavour.

I was a little disappointed in the quality of food offered, for instance the cold ramen was rather bland while the katsu wasn’t crispy enough. There are far better Japanese places in Calgary. I would recommend Katsuten for katsu, Gorilla Whale for yakitori, Globe Fish for ramen.

We came here for a birthday dinner for the hubs tonight! The service was awesome, and the food even better. Everything we ordered was delicious and fairly priced! The hubs is in love with the katsu curry and im totally coming back to try their curry with cheese :p
Loved that they made the day even more special by bringing a dessert with a sparkler out for the hubs. We totally weren't expecting it!
Very family friendly :) My daughter is in love with their high chair!

Great little hole in the wall restaurant! Food is great and very reasonably priced. The staff are very accommodating and try to make your visit enjoyable. I highly recommend their brunch menu. The eggs bennys are cooked perfectly all the time, the curries definitely remind me of the ones ive eaten in Tokyo. It is a smaller place (seats 30 maybe max), so come early or book reservations.

Made reservations for brunch buffet on a Saturday, would highly recommend doing the same as the place is small and gets rather busy, we saw groups waiting for 20+ minutes. Food is top notch and the feel of the restaurant felt very traditional and family run.

If anyone rate this below 4 stars, they seriously have a problem or bias to this place. Went here for their 60 cents Takoyaki, but came out amazed with every other dishes we ordered. They have Japas (basically it’s Izakaya style) on Tuesday to Friday from 5pm to 9pm. Every single dish we ordered was made in DETAIL. They pay attention to every single detail and it is so delicious, presentation is excellent and on point. I highly recommend coming back to this place more than once!

PS - I love their green tea beer!!! It was made with perfection although it’s just Sapporo with green tea!
