If you are celiac look no further for a place to eat! This is my 6th time to this restaurant and every meal has been top quality. I wish there was a Wild Orchid everywhere I travelled.

What a great find. The entire door offerings are gluten free and prepared to perfection. The menu is eclectic with offerings ranging from sushi to burgers. The room is bright and tables are ideally placed. On top of all of the above the wait staff...is knowledgeable, attentive and wonderfully friendlyMore

The restaurant was nice and the server was friendly and efficient. The food was edible but was not good at all. The Shrimp tempura was small and not light and crunchy as you would expect. We had the Dynamite roll which was mostly all rice...and the crunchy Salmon roll which was barely edible with the tiniest piece of fish on top. The Tuna Tataki was equally disappointing. Also the ginger was old. I would never go back here and am stoked at the positive reviews above...More

We had dinner here on our way from Calgary to Banff. My partner must eat gluten free and we came to the right place. Wild Orchid's tempura is gluten free and made it a dedicated fryer. We ordered one of everything tempura and ended up...with too much food, so beware! The tempura shrimp was the best. The tempura vegetables were good, but the tempura yams were underdone in our opinion, and there were several pieces of yam in with the vegetable tempura, so there was some overlap. We took most of the tempura yams to Banff with us and finished them in the oven the next day, they were much better! We also ordered a salad, which we split, and one order of sushi. Both were very good.More

Very disappointing! The sushi tasted old. The avocado was rotten. Water glass was dirty. Used to one of favourite sushi restaurants, sadly we won’t be coming back.

We have dined at many Asian restaurants. This place was definitely just OK at best. The Sushi roll was less than average. One entree was decent the other was subpar.

Great patio to relax on and enjoy sale and sushi. Tried 6 different kinds to sushi and all were amazing. The only downer was the dessert (toffee pudding and shake bomb), not worth the calories. Thanks for the excellent service and stellar food!

This was amazing. I haven’t had crunch in sushi in years since I’ve been gluten free! Our waiter Dillon was amazing, offering tips on the menu as well as local activities since we were visiting from out of town. Highly recommend!

A friend of mine suggested this place. They're allergic to gluten, and this place is 100% gluten free. It's in Canmore, so it's pricey, but the food is very good. We had shrimp tempura, teriyaki wings and the bbq pork rice roll. The tempura and...wings were cooked perfectly - crispy and not greasy. Be careful though, not all ingredients are listed on the menu. The bbq pork rice roll had mint in it, and that was not listed. I just deconstructed it and picked the mint out. It tasted good after the mint was removed.More

It was amazing to find a restaurant that offered an entirely gluten free dining experience. Our Celiac kept saying “are you sure it’s gluten free” because everything was so tasty. The chicken wings were amazingly crunchy, the sticky toffee pudding was excellent and the avocado...cucumber rolls even pleased our fussiest eater.More

Our server Dillon was amazing. He was so patient and accommodating as we asked for special items or questions. The food was delicious too. I had the Green Curry and the Curry was tasty and mild. The veggies were plentiful, varied and cooked perfectly. Our...son ordered the Bison Burger. Which he said was so flavorful. Plus it came with great fries. The grandkids had fries, and also shrimp tempura. Our 9 year old granddaughter said the shrimp tempura was the best she has ever eaten. Our daughter in law ordered a California roll and a Dynamite roll. She loved the waY the dynamite roll was prepared with the shrimp on top. Dillon was able to split an order of vanilla ice cream for the kids. The adults share the cappuccino cheesecake which they loved. My husband and I shared the treacle pudding. What a treat!More
