Award-winning chef and owner Roy Oh puts a modern twist on Korean cuisine. Anju, which translates to “food you eat with alcohol” is casual food, meant to be shared with friends and eaten with alcohol. Eat. Drink. Live.
Anju Restaurant opened the doors to it’s original location on NYE 2008 in an obscure location on the west side of downtown Calgary. Not discouraged by this challenging location, Chef Owner Roy Oh stayed true to his vision of creating an upscale Korean restaurant. Slowly people started hearing about this little restaurant doing Korean food with a modern twist and Anju was put on the culinary map. In 2013, when Anju was receiving a significant amount of press and recognition, Roy felt that Anju couldn't reach its full potential where it was, so he decided to close the doors and search out a bigger and better location. A partnership was formed with Concorde Group and together they have reopened Anju at 344 17 Ave SW.
