Great little (and I do mean tiny) place! Ramen was excellent, very tasty broth, great presentation, and reasonable prices. I'll definitely be back. The homemade ice cream was delish!

Kind of a hole in the wall restaurant with rickety looking furniture. Even before the restaurant opens for lunch at noon, a queue forms approx 15 minutes earlier. Half a dozen spots at the counter and maybe a dozen or so at tables are available. Now to the food: fresh, balanced and decent portions. Fish, pork, beef, noodles and rice... More

Don't be put off by the unpretentious "hole-in-the-wall" chic interior or the perpetual, but fast moving, line up out the door. The focus is on the food. Every dish is freshly prepared and we loved everything we tried over our 5 visits in 8 days. Fresh salads, chicken tortilla, shrimp burger, salmon belly... all so light and delicious. Fun atmosphere... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Montreal, on a first visit during lunchtime in winter, do not hesitate, you want to splurge in that bowl of ramen. Perfect cuts of pork belly, hard boiled egg, nori and noodles, the broth is the standout and is deep as the heart that makes it. Expect huge lineups but restaurant does a... More

Impressive, the food and the service. So quick. So typical. Great portions. Come before of after rush hours for a place to sit. The staff is fun; they all seem to enjoy the work and the people they serve. They are all very polite, in words and manners. It is quite an experience. Would come back for sure. No credit... More

The best Sushi in Canada! Atmosphere is really like in Japan (or what I watch about Japan on TV) , and the taste is perfect. We were there for the businesstrip and briefly, but we would love to visit again.

My sister and I went to this restaurant for my birthday during our visit to Montreal. Be forewarned, there is mostly like a wait to get in. We went at 7:00pm on Sunday, and there was a long line outside to get inside. They do not take reservations and only Canadian money and/or bank card to pay for the meal.... More

The service was fast compared to the line-up. Food was very good. It's a good place to eat fast although I wouldn't recommend for a date.

I discovered this restaurant last year while i was living in montreal. Just a few minutes walk from my flat. what caught my attention is the waiting at the door every single day. I decided to try it. After 35 min wait we got the table and we simply ordered 80% of what was on the menu. One of the... More

As per other reviews, waited 45 min in line, but it was 730pm on a Saturday night - but totally worth the wait. Amazing flavours. Definitely recommend the BBQ chicken taco salad - the blend of flavours was so delicious could have ordered more - shared as a appetizer for 4. Also had vegetable ravioli, shrimp burger, salmon tuna bowl,... More

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
