All there ramen is very good. But I find the soup is a bit oily. Otherwise it's a good place to eat ramen. Price is reasonable

There are so many Ramen shop in Downtown Vancouver particularly in Westend. This is one of my pick out of all I've tried in this neighborhood. Not only their Ramen (noodle), their gyoza is really good. Like many Ramen shops, very small place to eat in so if you go wrong time of hours then you will end up in... More

We have been going to this location for quite a few years and the quality has never disappointed us. The line up does get to an hour during busy times during the day and week. The staff is very nice and polite, they are genuine Japanese people. The ramen is not the best I have had but is very consistently... More

Had the char siu ramen and it was very good. The broth was tasty, the char siu was tender and the noodles were delicious (perhaps a tad over-cooked). Service can be a bit uneven, though. Be prepare to wait for awhile during the evenings. The place is usually packed but the seats turnover quickly. I had to wait about 15... More

Lots of options on the menu and they all looked yum. I opted for the Robson street special and was very satisfied.

Went here with my son and his girlfriend while visiting from Winnipeg. I had never before experienced Ramen, and was not disappointed! This was delicious indeed. The slow simmered pork broth was silky and flavourful. We also ordered gyoza pork dumplings, which were just fantastic. Good value for great ramen!

Just enjoyed their new location on West Broadway at Cambie. Staff continue to be friendly and this feels and tastes authentically Japanese. Pricing not cheap with Ramen bowl in the $11 range and combos for $15-20 range. Good fast and tasty. Just a little expensive, but the going rate for Vancouver. Good luck and enjoy!

We had read about this place as it was rated one of the very bests ramen joints in the city. There was a queue when we arrived so that is good news. It didn't take too long before we were at a table near the back. The tables in the front are communal. We were given menus as we waited... More

There is usually a lineup at this place at lunch and dinner hours. In my opinion, not worth the wait. The broth was very salty so I had to pour tea in it.
