“Small menu good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2013

Really the best ramen place in toronto. the soup was well balanced and had lots of flavour! the pork belly was melt in your mouth good! the only regret was i didn't order more! but i was full anyways soo good thing i didn't. The only draw back i guess is that the place is small and you have to wait outside. It cool in the summer but the winter kind of bad since we waited for like 30min before we can get a seat. But over all good experience good service & food!

“Absolutely delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2013

We have tried many different ramen places in Toronto and this place is the best one so far. The menu is rather limited but both the shio & tonkotzu ramen we tried were very tasty. The broth had lots of flavour without being overpowering which I find tends to happen with porkbone broth at many other places we tried. We especially enjoyed the pork belly which was cut thinly so even the fat on it was lovely. The fungus was also nice with the soup. The service was fast & friendly.

This place does tend to get very busy & the lines do get long so to avoid this, we came after the dinner rush (that weeknight is was around 8:00 pm). We got a table right away. We will definitely be back!

“Bland broth, tight tables”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

Came here for a quick lunch and was seated right away. The menu is very limited so had the tonkutso ramen with egg( dollar extra). Came right away, broth has no taste at all, with thin noodles, with some kind of fungus ? and bamboo shoot slices. The water glass they gave me had things in it(dirt?) did not bother to even try it. Edamame was fine and gyoza fair. Would not go back to this establishment as there are lots of other alternatives.

“Good to try but too long a wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

Great tonkotsu ramen but not as flavorful as Raijin. Great service. Space too small. Average price and serving size. Long wait.

“Good ramen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

Friendly staff and was seated promptly. Seating arrangements were slightly weird but can't blame them since its because of the spacing of the restaurant.
Good portion of ramen and meat which was very good. The porkbone soup was a delight and not too salty.
Theres alot of competition in the area but this place is still a must-try.
