This place really is a hidden jem. I almost couldn't find it if it wasn't for the line up. Their menu is a like their atmosphere; tiny and simple. Which is exactly the opposite of the taste and quality of the soup. It may look...More

On the strength of TA reviews we chose to wait in the line for 20 or 30 minutes (at 7 pm) to check this place out. It's actually quite tiny, while waiting outside we overestimated the size because of the full length mirrors on one...More

Stood in line - usually don’t do this but the line up was a mix of ethnicities and moved fast so I tolerated the wait. Had the pork ramen and was blown away. It was spicy but not overly, the egg was cooked perfectly and...More

If you like ramen, this should be your go-to in Ottawa. The miso black is outstanding. The gyoza are quite good (maybe a bit pricey, though) and the fried chicken is perfectly seasoned and crispy. Prepare yourself for a lineup, but the wait is definitely...More

I absolutely LOVE Sansotei. I have gone about 6 times now and if I lived or worked closer I'd probably go every week. I always get the Shoyu ramen and it's amazing every time. The prices are really low considering how big the serving is...More

So popular is this restaurant that we had to queue for 30 minutes for a table. The wait was worth it and we understand this is the norm. The service was fast and efficient and the food was excellent. We had gyoza and a seaweed...More

Best. Ramen. In. Ottawa. Hands-down. Obviously not the same quality as ramen in JAPAN! But, we're not in Japan, we're in Ottawa. Delicious, delicious, delicious food. Come early or wait in a lineup for 20 mins.
