Visit quite often as it is close to work. The ramen is good. I like the soup, thick and creamy. The service is nice.

My favorite ramen place in town. Only one downside is sitting. It’s always too busy. And there’s long lineup most of time. But ramen is so good here.

We had the combination with fish eggs and rice along with shio ramen. The broth is definitely on point. Having been to Japan, this ramen is probably as close as you will get without going overseas. Noodles were just mediocre for me. Would come back...More

Great ramen, line was long but moved fast. Be prepared if it’s winter as standing in rainy lines can get chilly.

Enjoyed the ramen. It was very delicious, but you would have to wait for 30 minutes to get it. If you are walking from downtown Vancouver, there will take you around 30 minutes to get there.

Get there early. I think they open at 11:30 so be there before that for lunch. I'd be there 11:15. It is quite a popular place so that's my advice. I'm not sure if they take reservations but I think not. Phone to ask though... More
