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

I have been to Shikiji three times and each time the meal has been incredible. The chilli goma ramen is the best soup I have ever had and the appetizers/sashimi are also amazing. I will be back for more ramen soon!

I am a snob when it comes to Japanese food as I lived in Japan for 5 years. But the Chili Goma Ramen here at Shikiji is to die for! I dream of it everyday. Since I was introduced to it early October, I have been there 6 times and that was only 3 weeks ago! I really think Shikiji... More
