We tried the curry pork ramen and the vegan. Both were delicious. Enjoyed the thin noodles. Friendly staff.

My daughter is vegan and loves ramen so we were recommended this place because they have a vegan section on their menu. It's very casual and we had to wait in line for a while but it was definitely worth it. You can customise your...ramen exactly the way you want it and everything we tried was delicious and very inexpensive.More

Well worth the wait in the queue. Really good Japanese ramen. Great to have various options to tailor the ramen to your tastes. Wife also tried the vegetarian version and reckoned it was better than the normal Tonkotsu version! Prices very reasonable for Vancouver and...took advantage of the ability to order extra noodles if the standard portion ramen is not enough for a reasonable 1CAD for half or just 2CAD for a full. So popular that at 9.30pm in the evening there was still a short queue and wait to get in! Can see why it is so popular. Would happily return if we visit Vancouver again.More

Delicious and authentic. Crowded and popular spot. Very casual and quick service. The classic chashu-men can be adapted to taste...my traditional bowl plus added egg was so so tasty!

Excellent ramen. We tried several different things on our 2 trips here. Everything was flavourful and just the right amount of spicy. Service is attentive and, even on a busy evening, prompt.

Their classic ramen was tasty and noodles were cooked to perfection. It’s been awhile since I’ve had authentic ramen. Be prepared to wait in line because it’s a small spot. We arrived at 9:40pm and had to wait for about 30 minutes to get seated....Worth the wait. Reminds me of ramen houses in Japan. Just eat and go. Will come back if we are ever back in Vancouver.More

Given the huge line out front and all the praise online I thought I would try this place out. It was yummy but an hour long wait was excessive. By the time I finally got inside I just asked for the meal to go.

Having eaten at this chain in Japan, over several days we watched the constant customer line for this establishment. Locals know best and one day when we spotted no line we decided to experience the popular trend for ourselves. Busy & crowded with seemingly little...concern for COVID measures. Fast and friendly service provides you with your customized order of ramen. Choose the noodle firmness, spice level, broth thickness, and additional options; egg, nori, kikurage, pickled veggies and extra chashu. Most ramen shops also allow you to customize your order but here they focus on their choices. We enjoyed the tonkatsu classic which is a tasty rich complex pork broth, fresh noodles & pork, egg and nori. We also had their goyza which was not notable. An excellent option for the cool rainy days in Vancouver. We will join the throngs recommending this restaurant.More

I'm constantly amused by the cult following this place has. I live right next door and pass the long lines of Ramen junkes standing in the rain waiting to get in. Look, there's nothing wrong with Danbo but there's really nothing special either. Yeah, I...know, they offer "configurability" - you can fine tune how rich the broth is, whether the ramen noodles are al dente or fully cooked, and so forth. Spoiler: Most of the other ramen joints in the neighborhood offer the same thing. Every time I walk past the long line of people waiting to get into Danbo, while there's zero wait for a half dozen other equally good ramen places less than a block away, I just can't help but laugh. But to each his own. If you want to go to THE place that everyone's willing to stand in line in the rain for an hour to get into, this is where the cult seems to favor.More

Best ramen my daughter and I have ever had. Understandable why there is a constant line up! Broth was amazing and the pork was melt in your mouth. Fast, efficient and friendly service.

I read all the great reviews if this place, and after trying the rest, I thought I should try the “so called” best…and man was I (and my family) disappointed. The broth was thin and unimpressive, the noodles were packet quality and the gyoza flat...and bland. Will not return.More

Always a treat for some of the best tonkatsu ramen in the city. The wait to get in can seem intimidating, but the selection and taste of the various ramen never disappoint (especially on a rainy or colder day).
