I went there yesterday with a friend, i had high expectations for this place, as I read online that it was good. Nothing farthest from the truth... I ordered Gyoza as an appetizer, they were crispy only on one side, and they tasted worse than any of the ones you can buy frozen in a shop around china town. My... More

I happened upon this restaurant and decide to try it out after noticing the Trip Advisor sticker in the window. Easy to read menu, friendly staff and yummy soup. I had the traditional bowl in soya broth but with udon noodles instead of ramen. Filling and tasty.

No comparison to ramen at Ippudo (4th Ave. in NYC), for instance, but it can hold its own on a gelid winter day. Lots of noodles, lots of meat and veggies. Depends what you look for. It was hot, hearty, tasty, not too salty and the service was friendly and quick. Also, you can't beat the price: CDN$9.99 for a... More

Honestly, i went there with my friends and their "ramen" isnt even ramen. Its literally spagettis they used for the noodles. The only thing i liked here was their Chicken wings and gyoza.... Go to Imadake if you want something of quality. DONT RECOMMEND AT ALL!!!

On the recommendation of a friend, we walked up the narrow steps to this 2nd floor restaurant with 11 people (including kids and seniors) and had a good meal with a view of the east end of Chinatown. This is a prototypical ramen restaurant that has all the features students and "young folk" would probably want: good ramen for a... More

It's probably not fair for me to write a review on Sumo as I have dined at many of the top ramen shops in New York (Totto, Ippudo etc) and have therefore been spoiled by good ramen. The ramen at Sumo isn't bad...it's just not anything special. I ordered the vegetarian ramen and the vegetables they included were tomatoes and... More

The menu is very interesting, very authentic and tasty. The ramen noodles bowl are so good!! the grilled calamari is also delicious, and so are the gyozas!! it's a cute place, very good service. We will go back there many times!

Not a crowded spot when we arrived. We both had a bowl of Ramen. My husbands beef ramen was good, I was disappointed by the "Krab" in my seafood bowl. The udon noodles were good. The fried tentacles app was WAY overcooked. They would do better removing the small ends and just offering smaller bites of the larger bits. Staff... More

Standard for this city in the ramen department, not the real thing by any means. I appreciate the fact that that Sumo Ramen is giving us this soup. It is not completely bad of course. But you would not last a day selling this in Japan. In the meantime as we all wait Sumo Ramen will do.

Sometimes the best restaurants you experience when visiting a city are the ones you discover yourself, with no preconceptions. This is one of those places where you don't really have to care about authenticity, since it had hand-made noodles and fresh toppings and broth. Their signature dish, a pork ramen, hit the spot extremely well. Staff were busy and yet... More
