Worth the line

Stood in the line, well worth it. Discovered this restaurant on eaters heat map, and loved it. Sat at the bar and watched chef turn out a crazy demanding and quick service. We loved the burger. Bring Canadian cash, or run to the $ machine down the street as they do not take America debit cards.

We popped in for some ramen and made it just under the wire. The place was still packed and we had a short wait for a table 10 minutes before 3:00. Service was friendly, we ordered our food within 5 minutes of sitting. We both ordered ramen and it came 5-10 minutes later. Delicious. Would recommend this place to anyone... More

Affordable lunch. The tiny space was packed, obviously a popular lunch spot. The waitstaff was all really friendly, and hustling around to accommodate everyone. Food was excellent. We had the ramen and pork rice bowl. Definitely worth a visit.

we got to sit at the counter and watch the Japanese chefs cook, we picked the two first dishes from the menu and picked two more just coz we watched them cook it to another customer :) the kitchen is tiny and so was the dining room, everything was delicious and authentic.

Well, we spent more time in the booth waiting than eating inside the restaurant. We got so, so rushed by the waiters that i left the restaurant stressed out. It was 9:14 when I took a picture of the menu before ordering our meal, at 9:36 we were finishing deserts. take your conclusion, this was dinner time, i didn't even... More

Been here a few times. The service is always friendly and really quick. Ive had about 10 different items on their menu. Only thing is i find the food to be a little too salty.

Great vibe to this place. My fiancé and I had a hankering for ramen and this didn't disappoint. Served within 10 minutes!

I almost never wait at a restaurant but my 40 minute wait was rewarded with some of the best Japanese food I've ever had. Highly recommend the shrimp and tuna bowl. The carpaccio starter was also excellent. Awesome food and excellent friendly service. Just don't go expecting a fancy ambience.

I was pleasantly surprised by this Japanese izakaya in Montreal. The shrimp burger was very good, although it had a lot of mayo. The pork cheek was one of the best, as well as the eggplant. The yakitori was sold. And the salad was very good. Portions are large but prices add up. Small place and they rush you, so... More

Just a great place and good fresh food. I loved the saumon plate and I recommend it, but everything looks good. Everybody is nice, and the wait is not so long.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighborhood 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.
