Very small shop so seating is very limited. The food overall is average , neither good nor bad. If youre in the mood for ramen noodle soup, banff has very limited options. The miso ramen is a standard staple. A little on the pricier side....More

If you like Japanese soup, this is the place to go in Banff. Don´t expect a fancy restaurant or american style service. What you get is: delicous japanese soup. The place is really busy, better reserve a table before you go.

Im having Wanton Noodle soup today. Its a little pricey but the taste is really good. The store location is really small. You have to wait for 5 to 10 mins for your food
