“Good Japanese Noodle place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2009

Best Udon noodles in Calgary/Banff area. The noodles texture and quality makes the difference. The soup broth is good as well.

The Sushi in the fridge is decent but nothing too special.

The gyoza was as though they thawed it out of the microwave.

If you go just for the noodles, it's EXCELLENT!!!

“Good Pork Cutlet Rice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

A small Japanese noodle restaurant right at the centre of Banff. I love the Pork Cutlet Rice and noodle soup around $10 each. If you are looking for budget place to eat, this is highly recommended.

“Not much to look at but good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2009

I had the tan tan ramen and my gf had the miso ramen. Both were excellant. The place was clean, but a little run-down so not the best place for a romantic dinner but a great little place for a quick lunch.

“Great Noodle soup”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2008

This is a hole in the wall noodle soup restaurant. They also have some rice dishes. We ate here our first night, it was inexpensive and the soup was great. It was perfect for a cold day. All the asian locals were eating there, which was also a good sign. They have ramen, soba, and udon. I think they have some sushi also, but we didn't try any.
