Let me begin by stating that there are only a "few" worthy of claim to the title of "Ramen King" in the West End of Vancouver. Marutama consistently serves up a fabulous chicken based ramen noodle.soup.. done soft, regular or ...al dente. There is a great spicy option broth offered when ordering...if you are into medium spicy > hot. Prices here are very reasonable for the serving sizes and the noodle only "refills" are readily available on request, at an additional cost of $1.25 for those looking to fill-up. Interesting interior decor done in country style wood furniture which is surprisingly comfortable. For those interested in watching their ramen preparation... there are seating options available to catch a full view of the kitchen preparation. Prices are completely competitive with other competitors in the immediate neighbourhood. What makes Marutama stand out among the others, is their dedication to maintaining their loyalty to the "origional " flavor. There is nothing close to this quality ramen in the westend.

Came here for lunch and ordered the original ramen. It came with one egg and a slice of pork.

The noddles were perfect al dente and the pork and egg were extremely good... So good it tops everywhere else for the egg and sliced pork.

Broth was different since it was chicken broth but it was still flavorful without being on the heavy side.

It was $10 for each bowl and since they had construction outside their door step the server gave us a complimentary side dish of radish which was delicious!

Oh you can choose how "done" you want your noodles to be which is a huge plus since some people like it cooked longer / softer and others like it firm / al dente.

Awesome service, nice atmosphere !! Will be coming back here to try another bowl of ramen.
