You won’t be bored with their menu selections and you’ll definitely want to try something from the creative beverage program created by Stephen Phipps, Andrew Stewart and Stephen Stewart. They’ve created a beer, wine and cocktail list to go perfect with the cuisine at Anju.

The restaurant first opened in 2008 in the west side of downtown Calgary and hit it bigger than expected for the location.
