“Ya man! Ramen!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Loved this place. Food is excellent and of good quality. This is real Japanese food (Yes I have travelled a couple of times to Japan). From the presentation to taste; it is superbe! The staff are super nice. I would come back here on my next business trip in Quebec City!

“Ramen and Gyoza”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Two of my favorite things...this place is definitely a hole-in-the-wall, but what it lacks in charm it makes up with the amazing food. Order the Chashu Pork and the Pork Gyoza and you won't leave disappointed.

Staff was extremely friendly and super attentive. The chef was very intense while making each bowl of ramen, so sit at the counter for a different experience.

“Super restaurant!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Une perle du quartier Limoilou, à ne pas manquer si vous êtes en visite à Québec et que vous voulez sortir des sentiers battus.

N'oubliez pas de réserver, le restaurant est très petit!

If you're visiting Quebec city, going to this place won't be a mistake. It's a few blocks away from the touristic area, but it's well worth the ride.

They do take reservations, so calling in advance is recommened.

“The real taste of Japan!”
Reviewed February 15, 2011

If you've been to Japan once, i'm sure you realized how japanese restaurants abroad actually have nothing japanese but the name.
But here we have HOSAKA-YA, a cozy little place where you can have the best sushi in town, enjoy a fine selection of izaka-ya food and tsumami (japanese tapas) with sake, or treat yourself some comfort food like Gyu-Don or Katsu-Don...
The place is run by a Japanese family (not Vietnamese or Chinese) which, with all due respect, helps keeping it real!
Try the home made gyoza (japanese dumplings); they're to die for!
