Best in Toronto so far. This is probably the 5th ramen restaurant we've visited and everything we ordered was delicious and suuuuper fresh, biggest portion of noodles I've seen also. Got some pork in every bite, which btw was both tender and had a delicious charred flavour. My boyfriend actually drained his bowl and had extra noodles for the first... More

I used to goto this place all the time, but the food quality has really slipped. The ramen is so oily and I can't confirm exactly but I get very thirsty all the time after eating there. There are so many other better places to try ramen at. This is just a chinese owned ramen place that makes it a... More

My fave ramen place is Kinton but I live in Oshawa and the Kinton locations are too far from me so this is a solid substitute. The manager here is super nice and it's honestly the best customer service I've ever received at an Asian restaurant.

We ordered teppanyaki ramens: beef, chicken, and kimchi-beef. My kimchee-beef tasted like a regular spicy broth with a tiny (wasabi bowl) sized serving of kimchi on the side. The chicken teppanyaki looked slightly better with corn, and a small number of sizzling chicken strips on a hot plate. The taste of garlic could be "overpowering." The regular beef teppanyaki ramen... More

Disappointing in every sense. From the poor service to the terrible Ramen (which tastes frozen not fresh) even the edamame and gyoza taste frozen. The service was slow and they initially brought the wrong dish which they did rectify but just added to the delay and meant the 4 of us did not eat at the same time. I will... More

My daughter wanted to visit Chinatown. While there, we sought out an authentic lunch experience. Staff were welcoming and helpful when we were selecting items from the menu. As soon as we were seated, I was given a cup of Jasmine green tea. I ordered the Spicy Miso Ramen with chicken. I would get it again, but with pork. My... More

Food is ok but service is extremely poor. Waiters ignore you, or simply disappear. Won't be back. I rather go somewhere where my presents is welcome.

It's quite amazing how even low-end noodles mixed with different spice combinations and pork, chicken or beef can taste so good! This will definitely leave you full. For faster service, phone your order in ahead of time.

As my brother told me, "I'm going to take you for real Mr. Noodles." A great restaurant with a huge variety of ramen, there's definitely something for everyone. I had the chicken teppanyaki ramen noodle soup dish which was beyond delicious and full of flavour (much more than pho). Like many Japanese places your meal is served with green tea... More
