Large bowls of delicious ramen and other noodles. Gyoza equally good, as was the service. Great value for dinner in Vancouver. We visited the location in the West End on Robson.

My family and I, have been to Benkei well over 50 times. We have even won a competition here. We come back to Vancouver every summer and are never disappointed for this amazing ramen. The Shio Ramen is excellent, not too salty but just right....More
