This bowl of ramen was amazing. The line was long when we arrived, but we decided to stick it out (there had to be a line for a reason, right?). The wait ended up being rather short: 15-20 minutes, and we were seated in next...More

This is a casual but busy place, not so different from ramen places I've enjoyed in Japan. It's apparently part of a chain with branches in other cities in North America. It says it serves "Hokkaido" ramen, which I'd never tried before. In any event...More

The food was great but the service even better. The servers were patient with us and helped us choose our dishes. The noodle bowls we ordered came with the thinner noodles than I expected. We ordered pork broth and miso based bowls.

This is my favourite ramen restaurant in Vancouver. My kids love it here too. The one on Cambie & Broadway is more spacious and less crowded and the added bonus of chicken kaarage. Mmmmmmmmm.... Robson and Cambie both have the same high quality, taste &...More

Definitely some of the best Ramen I've had. Fresh, hot and delicious. Individual as well as common tables, it gets busy and we waited outside for about 20 min and took whatever seats we could. Great fast service and reasonable prices.

We got there for an early dinner around 6 and there was already a queue, although luckily still inside the restaurant. Whilst you wait, the servers give you menus to browse and then later take your order as you progress in the queue. It is...More

This was my first visit to an authentic Japanese noodle house, and it broke my brain how good it was. Super small place, can hold no more than 36 diners at a given time. Hostess/Servers are very nice and helped me settle on a dish....More

Great ramen! The broth were so tasty and the meat very tender. There's always a queue, so be prepared to wait. But once get seated, service is quick. Apart from the ramen, we had the gyozas which is as good too.

Get there early. I think they open at 11:30 so be there before that for lunch. I'd be there 11:15. It is quite a popular place so that's my advice. I'm not sure if they take reservations but I think not. Phone to ask though... More
