Stopped by here after a bad experience at Rad on Denman by a wait staff and left. This place has new owners and they had limited Wonton Ramen (only 10 bowls a day) and it was good. Had the extra BBQ pork shoyu ramen and...More

This is a good ramen house. Kind of tucked away on Denman St. however flavors are great. Have to try the bamboo charcoal miso soup as well. The color of the broth can take some getting used to but it's robust flavor is worth it....More

I got the deluxe bamboo charcoal dark miso ramen and it was quite good, I really should have tried it spicy! I may just find it pricey because of all the cheap sushi I’ve been finding so I was expecting the sushi would be cheap...More

Excellent service, very reasonable prices and wonderful atmosphere. Their bamboo charcoal dark miso is something out of a dream. I recommend touring Stanley Park until exhausted and recharging on miso!

This is a basic ramen shop with really good ramen. There are a couple of small tables for one or two and then a large table in the middle of the room that everyone sits around. The broth was very nice.

Great ramen but was not extra ordinary for me. Other restaurants also have similar quality ramen as this place. Was not too salty so it was perfect.

Motomatchi was recommended to us by long time Vancouverites. Located central (Robson/ Deman), this smallish restaurant has a lot of competition in the area. I was satisfied with the tasty broth, noodles done to right tenderness, Bbq pork flavourful and very good goyza dumplings. My...More

There are about 10 different bowls to chose from, one of them is vegetarian with veggie broth. Usually a bit of a wait to get in. Really good ramen and proper bowl sizes, very good. Friendly staff.
