I love their Miso Ramen. I stopped by anytime i go to Vancouver. It was excellent this time as always.
If what you want is just inexpensive good ramen in town , this is the one or perhaps one of the best in Greater Vancouver. No fancy decoration, always long line up, no reservation of seats, crowded seating, eat with wooden chopsticks, sometimes even need to share tables with others plus just eat n go - no hanging around.

What a quaint place .. it was right across the street from our hotel (Times Square Suites Hotel). We watched the lines form for a few hours and watched customers come and go; we decided, "YES" this was the place we were going to go. We were not disappointed. Very Japanese -- we were the only "white" folks in there... More
No, this is not a fancy restaurant, no, there is not an extensive menu, and yes, you'll probably sit at the bar or a shared table. Should you care? No! Not in a place that is about to serve you a very delicious bowl of ramen (among the best we've tried), plus nice appetizers if you'd like. Very fair prices... More
We loved this place for its authenticity and value. We both had the miso ramen with lean pork, and the soup was extremely tasty, the pork was lean and generous, and the noodles cooked perfectly. Some of the best ramen we've had! Only in Vancouver for 2 more days and will definitely be eating here again before we leave.
There is not many place to have a real Ramen in Bc. I have been here so many times and always good. Try it!!
My sister told me about Kintaro Ramen and told me that it was really good and authentic to Japan - style ramen shops...she was 100% correct. Let me say from the onset that this isn't a Michelin 3 Star restaurant, not a foodie-nerd's mecca, or something you'll see on Bizarre Foods or any of the TV shows. What it IS... More
This little place reminded me of the back alley noodle stands in Tokyo. All the hard working cooks and waitstaff and most of the customers are Japanese. Very limited menu. Most popular dish is ramen with pork ($10) and you have a choice of lean or fatty pork and a choice of how spicy you want the soup. Nothing fancy... More
Kintaro is a small restaurant, doing one rhing very well, which is nice to find. We did not have to wait in line long, they move it right along, and it was worth the wait. They passed out menus in line and took our order as we approached the door, so when we got a seat the bowls came promptly.... More
