Anju Restaurant and Lounge

November 9th, 2009 by Nathan Atnikov

Sitting in the upstairs bar at the Anju Restaurant and Lounge is a pretty good feeling. A decent view of downtown and some nice quiet music makes for a nice dining experience, even if a large plasma TV above the bar is spewing out images of grown men fighting in a cage. You can’t win ‘em all.

An impressive drink selection is the perfect compliment to Anju’s Korean cuisine, which offers different appetizers and meals in increments of 5, 10, 15 and 20 dollars. Opting for a 20-dollar stone rice bowl and a 15-dollar serving of do-it-yourself salad wraps, I have to admit I was a little disappointed by the serving size. Two entrees for me and a friend clearly was not going to be enough food. That aside, the food was rich and tasty, even if most of the flavours were overpowered by the spicy paste mixed in to both dishes.

After perusing the menu for a possible after-dinner, um, meal, we decided our money was best spent elsewhere. Good food and friendly wait-staff, but Anju is decidedly not one of the better value restaurants in the city.
