We always come here when we're in Banff. Noodles are freshly made, broth is always steaming hot. To get a table right away, line up as soon as it opens. It'll be worth it!

Ordered Wonton ramen, katsu rice, miso soup. Everything is good. Price is very reasonable. The place is very small and crowded. Need to get a number to get a table. Service is quick and great.

Ramen was good. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. The only thing I'd improve is the space. It's a bit cramped in there. Otherwise, not bad!

Great place for a tasty and authentic ramen on a cold day. A small restaurant with friendly staff, the meals are well priced for the expensive ski resort town of Banff. Try the Tan Tan Ramen, spicy sesame goodness!!!

We came twice, but both times we couldn't get seats (it's a really small restaurant) so we packed and ate in parks, which turned out to be a pleasant experience haha. We have tasted the rice dishes (don) - excellent! We have also tasted the...More
