I've been here tonight. We waited for forty minutes, and we sat down at the table and waited for ten minutes until the server arrived. During that time, neither water was served. The food was the most disappointing taste I've ever had.

We waited about an hour to be seated at 8:30pm. They didn't have enough resources to serve the customers. The food presentation looked good. However, it's quite disappointing when I finally took the first bite. The soup was not port bone stew as most highly...More

The ramen is quite good, considering that the restaurant is in Québec City! The restaurant is clean and cute and the servers are efficient and friendly. The value is also good.

We went there twice. There is always a line as it has few seats. But the food is worth waiting for, and staff is friendly and helpful. Try the Aburi (seared tuna), and croquette. Even the vegetarian ramen, Yasai Miso, has a great broth.

This ramen is the best I've had outside of Japan. I tried both the Shoyu and Miso and both were well made and exactly what you'd expect them to be. The miso broth in particular was one of the better miso broths I've had. I'd...More

It was good, but a little disappointing. The ramen broth was not as aromatic as I was expecting. I would even go as far as saying I prefer a good quality package of instant ramen. The appetizers were better. We had the fried chicken, tuna...More
