My wife and adult children came for dinner in August 2016. We've been here a few times in the past. We always come for the ramen. Ramen: Pretty tasty. Good broth, noodles are decent, and optionally available side add-ons items (i.e. wakame, kimchee, extra meat, bean sprouts, etc.) are good to have. For Calgary, this ramen is quite decent in...

As the title indicated, waitresses here can be extremely rude. They don't have the common sense of serving you iced water (or even water) as a typical Japanese restaurant would. You have to ask for it! The place is quite conveniently located: the bus stop and the parking lot is right beside it. It is also quite beautifully decorated and... More

Ordered their Bento Box and I really like the tempura and the beef. Not so much the teriyaki chicken though. Also ordered the california roll and it was delicious. Price-wise I think you get what you paid for. Portion is good as well. Service was fast - might not have been the best service but it was above average

Read the review and decided to go there to have some Japanese Ramen. We ordered the seaweed salad, edamame, tempura as starters and chilli ramen (mine) and the tuna/salmon (my husband) for main course. 1. Food was ok, chilli noodles soup was tasty but not Japanese noodles soup, very heavy soup base. Didn't enjoy much... The tempura wasn't using the... More

Such good food, I have been eating here for 10 years and the fish is always high quality and at a very decent price.

This restaurant is always busy during lunch hours to the point that customers might get turn away if they don't have reservations. I remember years ago I visited this restaurant and their Ramen was very good but this time we were very disappointed. Both the Bento Box and Miso Ramen were below average.

I have never had any of the other Ramen dishes because this is my all time favourite there! So full of flavour - yum yum yum. Sushi is also really great here. It is always packed, and such a great little space. Always head here when I am home.

Wife had the shio ramen and I had the personal sushi platter and then shared a large tempura as an app. First sight of shio ramen made me laugh. I don't think of myself as a ramen expert but having spent some time in Japan and eaten a decent amount of ramen in Japan, New York, vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton (prairie... More

Shikiji has long been a favourite of mine, but admittedly I haven't been in a number of year. Craving ramen while I was downtown I was reminded of how close it is to the core. This is especially useful for tourists staying in the core. By cab it would be less than $10 and worth every penny. Certainly, Shikiji is... More
