Don't Be Fooled ...
Submitted Friday, June 10, 2011 - 9:13am [Dine in]

by the portions. My friends and I were debating whether or not to try this place because the bowls in the window looked small. Needless to say we were surprised that we were full regardless.

- Lots of toppings, they put it in a separate dish
- you can get a combo with bonito flakes on rice
- lots of choices, a lot of ramen places have a one page menu (granted double sided)
- you can get different kinds of meat
- very tasty (I had shoyru ramen)

- it's expensive
- there's a line to get in a lot of the time
- shared tables and limited room to yourself
- my friend's MISO ramen tasted like Chinese chicken chow mein.....? and her noodles were visibly overcooked

Miyabi Sushi & Ramen8100 Ackroyd Road, #195, Richmond
Ramen & Sushi
Submitted Friday, June 10, 2011 - 9:04am [Dine in]

The food was okay. It is nice to have the option of sushi and ramen in one restaurant but unfortunately neither are of stellar quality.

- you can get both ramen & sushi
- spacious restaurant
- courteous staff
- located between two skytrain stations and is a short walk between both

- sushi was a tiny bit dry, loose (not compacted well), and thin
- ramen was okay, toppings were as bountiful as I would like but alright
- slices of meat were probably 1 mm thick? not enough in my opinion

Good So Far...
Submitted Friday, June 10, 2011 - 8:56am [Dine in]

I understand that this place is relatively new, but so far so good. For the price which I found to be lower than normal this place was good.

- tasty, not too oily or salty
- you actually get slices of meat (with meat on it not fat)
- it's cheap
- the place is easily accessible for those who do not drive
- add on toppings come in a separate dish and for a reasonable price (some places will dump them on top)
- portions are good (not too small)

- no options at all (other places will ask if you want rich broth, fatty pork etc.)
- limited seating
- tables are really close together
- not much light in the place so I sat by the window

I've gone here several times although (not in the last month) as it is near friends who like ramen and don't wish to take transit or drive far.

-food comes quickly
-on a warm day they offer brothless ramen it's like a salad version of ramen ~ interesting
-food is yummy
-staff are friendly
-clean washroom
-funky decor (there's a motorcycle in the front of the restaurant)

-not enough meat in their ramen bowls
-very salty broth
-staff are not as attentive as expected or perhaps they are simply not enough staff members
-not easily accessible by public transit

Benkei Ramen3217 West Broadway, Vancouver
Submitted Friday, June 10, 2011 - 8:39am [Dine in]

I've gone to this place twice within the last few months. The food is not what I would really call ramen - if it is then it's the lower end type.

First time there, I ordered shoyru ramen. It came in good time, relatively fair sized bowl but my broth tasted like water and soy sauce (not impressed). The noodles and toppings were fine.

Second time, my boyfriend liked his shio ramen I ordered curry ramen...this was basically japanese curry cubes melted into the broth or water (I didn't taste any broth really). On top of that it was a very thick soup - I would say it goes better on rice.

Service & Ambiance
The ladies were very nice, they greeted you at the door and also bid you farewell. They are prompt and efficient. The decor was nice in this restaurant, the theme included a lot of tree trunk looking stools and bamboo stalks as dividers. I did not use the washroom in this place - so no comment there. Lots of room to move around, tables aren't too close together and since the place was not busy it was not noisy either.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
For the price...
Submitted Wednesday, June 8, 2011 - 10:53am [Dine in]

I would say it's pretty good.

- yummy!
- they actually use bone soup!
- fairly large portions (I've been to places where the give you a very fine slice of pork)
- you can choose lean or fatty pork
- you can choose light, medium or rich broth
- food comes quickly
- waitresses are efficient they start taking your orders in line and repeat back to you what you've ordered just to make sure
- if sitting at the bar you can watch them cook and there are at least 3 huge keg like pots of broth which are stirred quite often (I find it interesting to see them prepare the food)
- prices are low


- broth seems quite oily (particularly during the evening - so I prefer lunch hour)
- lean pork comes a bit tough for my liking
- there's a line to get in often
- you have to share tables with others and there is very little room to move about (although one could argue this is part of the atmosphere of a fast-paced ramen house)
- it's very noisy, as the waitresses and cooks will welcome you and bid you farewell
- small restaurant
- cramped bathroom
