The 4 Best Canmore Takeout Restaurants
1. Curry’s Curries
Chef Ryan De Alwis has a special gift. He makes the best Thai curries we have ever tasted anywhere outside of Thailand.
We recently spent a month in Thailand with our kids and we have been missing good, authentic Thai food ever since. But, when we recently tried the Panang Chicken Curry from Curry’s Curries, we nearly cried – it was that good!
Curry’s Curries specializes in handmade Thai and Indian curries and hot sauces. All curry orders are filled through contactless home delivery in the Bow Valley. Each handmade curry dish is stored in an individual container, which can be warmed up right away or frozen for later.
As all the curries are handmade, the menu at Curry’s Curries will vary, but typical offerings include Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Vindaloo, Panang Chicken, Vegan Thai Green Curry, Roasted Paneer Tikka and much more!
The Panang Chicken Thai curry was so good we forgot to take pictures. We were better prepared for our second purchase from Curry’s Curries – the butter chicken was also amazing!

2. Alberta Wing Shack (Canmore)
We discovered the Alberta Wing Shack has some of the best takeout in Canmore on Super Bowl Sunday. We were nervous about trying a new restaurant for the big game, but Alberta Wing Shack did not disappoint. Their tasty & unique chicken wings were so good, it immediately landed the Alberta Wing Shack on our list of best takeout in Canmore.
The menu on the Alberta Wing Shack webpage is a bit hard to navigate, but rest assured they know how to make excellent chicken wings. We ordered many of their unique flavors of chicken wings that day, but our favorites were the Town of Banff wings (Butter Chicken with Pineapple sauce), the Town of Exshaw wings (spicy peanut sauce) and their Honey Garlic wings.
(Please forgive the lack of pictures – it was Super Bowl Sunday after all!)
3. Summit Café
We first visited the Summit Café when we were first looking to buy a place in Canmore. We asked our Realtor for a restaurant recommendation and he recommended a local’s favorite called the Summit Café. It’s been one of our favorite Canmore restaurants ever since.
Open daily for breakfast and lunch, the Summit Café is a residential Canmore restaurant, well away from Canmore’s busy downtown. We especially love the breakfast menu at the Summit Cafe, but their baked goods and lunch offerings are especially good as well.
Their standard breakfast and lunch offerings are available for take-out, but the Summit Café also offers boxed lunches for those heading out for a Rocky Mountain adventure.
Find out why the Summit Café has been a local’s favorite for Canmore take-out since 1999!
4. Canmore Shawarma
When I lived in Calgary, I regularly ate my body weight in chicken shawarma wraps. Jimmy’s has the best chicken shawarma in Calgary of course, but I also loved my regular visits to Falafel King and Cedars Deli.
Moving from Calgary to Canmore was amazing, but I was saddened when I discovered that there was no chicken shawarma restaurant in Canmore. Thankfully, this changed a few years back when Canmore Shawarma opened its doors on Bow Valley Trail.
In addition to delicious Chicken Shawarma, Canmore Shawarma offers beef donair and falafel. All offerings are available as a wrap or as a platter.
If you have a sweet tooth, pick up a 6-pack of baklava. The sweet baklava from Canmore Shawarma is the perfect companion to the savory chicken shawarma.
If you are craving chicken shawarma, give Canmore Shawarma a try – it’s one of my favorite Canmore takeout restaurants.
