We always come here when we're in Banff. Noodles are freshly made, broth is always steaming hot. To get a table right away, line up as soon as it opens. It'll be worth it!

Ordered Wonton ramen, katsu rice, miso soup. Everything is good. Price is very reasonable. The place is very small and crowded. Need to get a number to get a table. Service is quick and great.
