Delicious! We loved their steaming miso ramen noodles. We liked the location right on Robson Street, just a few blocks from our B&B on Barclay Avenue. Service was friendly and fast. Beautiful traditional Japanese decor.

We had the Pork Ramen ($10.45) and Aka Maruko ($9.50) for a total of $20.95 after tax. I'm not a noodle expert or a foodie but I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. There is not a lot of seating room or place to hang your jacket, and there was a bit of a lineup to get a seat on... More

I haven't had Ramen like this since I was living in Japan 7 years ago. What a treat! Finally a traditional ramen house that allows Canadians to experience what REAL ramen tastes like. The atmosphere and style is pretty cool too...

Everyone enjoys ramen. They come in different sizes, variety and unfortunately those available at supermarkets ... well that's another story. Wonderful basic japanese ramen. The broth was tasty and the boiled egg was perfectly soft. Probably one of the best quality/price ratio in Vancouver. In addition the staff is exceptionally professional and nice. One of our new 'must go' places... More

We tried this restaurant (my wife and 2 y/o daughter) since we had a Groupon coupon and wanted to check the place and food. The food serving was good and the prices were not too bad. The noodles soup were good and fresh. The meat were very tender as well. There Salmon a la carte was also very good.

Food was well prepared and freshly prepared. Very tasty and worth a repeat visit. Not many tables in this mom & pop place and they do not speak good English, but you can point and gesture and get the best Noodle and Rice dishes in town. Do not be afraid to try this place.

I visited this relatively new addition of Japanese Ramen in the downtown of Vancouver with 2 friends and my husband. My husband is a vegan, and I would have thought it should be easy to have a bowl of noodle with some hot water and a bit of Shoyu or Shio and hopefully with some vegetables. The server told us...

I visited this restaurant with my two children and a $15 groupon valid for $30 worth of food. The menu is very reasonable and the portions are quite generous, so we actually had trouble consuming $30. The service was quick and efficient.
