Banff Noodle Bowl and Ramen Round Up

After an invigorating mountain adventure exploring the SkiBig3 resorts in Banff National Park, there’s no better way to cap off the day than by indulging in a piping hot bowl of noodles, ramen or curry. These meals will warm you right up from the inside out before the snow on your ski boots has even melted.

Check out this ramen round-up for restaurants in Banff serving up the most tantalizing Asian cuisines.

Amu Ramen Bar is the newest ramen shop addition to Banff’s culinary scene. True to its name with sleek, bar-style counter seating, you can watch the chefs create your very own ramen masterpiece. Or, enjoy their take home ramen kit – the ultimate DIY solution for the freshest ramen.

2. Chaya

This hole-in-the-wall restaurant lives right on Banff Avenue. Blink and you’ll miss it, but not to be overlooked, Chaya is a long-time local favourite. Enjoy six different types of ramen and a great selection of udon and soba.

3. Pad Thai Restaurant

You’ll get plenty of bang for your buck at Pad Thai Restaurant, with winter noodle specials on their ramen, pho, and noodle soups. Enjoy the classics like Tom Yum soup or red curry ramen with coconut milk. Their taro and thai bubble teas are the perfect dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth!

4. Pho House

If you’re feeling a warm bowl of pho, look no further than Pho House with the largest variety of Vietnamese pho soup in Banff. The sour and spicy bun bo hue or classic wonton soup are sure to please, and their vermicelli bowls are just as delicious!

5. Nourish Bistro

The King Kong noodles at Nourish Bistro might just be the best item on the menu, although it’s not without healthy (pun intended) competition. It’s an excellent vegetarian option with unique ingredients and flavours, while staying true to an Asian-inspired style. Pair this shareable dish with any other main for even more delicious variety.

6. Kuma Yama

Translating from Japanese to ‘Bear on the Mountain’, Kuma Yama brings the freshest tastes of Japan to Banff National Park with Lake Louise Ski Resort’s in-lodge sushi bar. But there’s more than sushi on the menu, with six different ramen bowls including tonkotzu, miso, and tan tan. Still feeling sushi? Order a sushi and ramen combo plate for the best of both worlds.

*Due to current COVID-19 government restrictions, Kuma Yama is currently closed – however you can currently order the same great ramen from the Powder Keg. Please check back for updates.

7. Ramen Arashi

Ramen Arashi has locations in both Banff and Canmore, serving up hearty portions of ramen deliciousness. With 15 different ramen bowls to pick from, Ramen Arashi’s ramen menu is bursting with variety and flavour. It will be tough to pick your favourite! (But the Black Arashi Tan Tan is where it’s at).
