We dropped by for an early dinner and found the restaurant not as busy. Their portions are small, but the spicy soup just right for my cold. They used to have soft shell crab a while ago, but is no longer part of the menu. We usually like to order a couple of side dishes with our ramen. This time... More

Got a chance to visit my friend's favourite ramen restaurant, the food was delicious and portions were large. Service was quick, and attentive. Tender Pork Rib Ramen was my choice, what will yours be?

I went with my family for lunch, I had never had ramen before, but I really enjoyed it. The service was fast and the food was good. I'd go again

First meal of 2017, glad it was. Amazing , large portions and cheap. Can't find gyoza like this anywhere else - which sucks when you have a craving and live 40mins away. The ramen is one of the best things i've ever tasted - if I lived in Toronto I'd eat here everyday.

Service here was very smooth and quick. Food was a delicious mix of interesting flavours and the black sesame ice cream was fantastic. Would return to try other dishes.

Located in the heart of Chinatown, this place is a go to for ramen lovers. Although it blends in among the shops, you will instantly be drawn into the place by a character standing outside holding a ramen bowl. Don't be fooled by the sign and think this is just another noodle restaurant. The servers are great, food is fast... More

I took my parents here (who were skeptical) and the ramen made both of them both converts. Now they're always asking when we can go back!

My boyfriend and I were looking for some place to have dinner. We got in and the service was great and quick in taking our orders. I had the curry chicken set, which was way too much for me and my boyfriend had some ramen. Both excellent, well priced and delicious!
