Gyoza was heated up in the microwave. And BBQ pork ramen tasted pathetic. It's the only one ramen place in Banff. Otherwise we would not go there. Very sad.

More of a lunch place with good ramen. I had the Tan Tan-ramen which was the best amongst all that our company tried. Genuine feeling in a bit touristic town. Not that many tables so make sure to go there after the lunch hour.

First time today and it is small, packed, simple and absolutely wonderful. Great authentic Japanese food with lots of variety. For a quick hot lunch or take out give this little hole in the wall a try

Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall… when in Banff, you have to visit this place. Our family loves this tiny place. After a hike, after skiing or even visiting Banff, this will be our first choice to go to. Hot and fresh! It's just so good!...More
