Small restaurant with around 10 small tables - it gets very busy but you can reserve. Food is very good and excellent value. No alchoholic beverages sold. Pleasant service. Ate here twice!

We always come here when we're in Banff. Noodles are freshly made, broth is always steaming hot. To get a table right away, line up as soon as it opens. It'll be worth it!

Ramen was good. Service was quick and the staff were friendly. The only thing I'd improve is the space. It's a bit cramped in there. Otherwise, not bad!
