  • Hours

Inspired by owner Vivek Velmurugan’s favourite home-cooked meals, this new Banff restaurant serves real south Indian specialties (with the best dishes of northern India also represented). Chefs from India’s upscale Taj hotels prepare exotic cuisine such as idli, dosa, vindaloo and Madras curry. The kitchen has a tandoori oven and the menu includes gluten-free, halal and vegetarian options.

Atmosphere

The décor at Indian Curry House features Indian art, gold hue accents and a bubble waterfall. There are comfortable leather chairs, high seats at the counter and  window tables with Mount Rundle and historic Banff Avenue building views.
