Food was really good. I ate a Vegetarian Ramen with egg and a Sapporo. Why not a 5 star? Was too hot the restaurant, noise due to air conditioning and waiters, some waiting at the door (no possibility to go for a walk) and after...More

We went on a weekday around 11:30 a.m. There was no wait when we go there. Quickly after being seated, people had to wait. Ramen is delicious. It's a good stop if you are looking to enjoy sample some of Vancouver's best food.

Food was great. Make sure you try the gyoza it is the best. The food quality was very good. Service is great.

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

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
