Really Yummy!

The food was just delicious! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable in vegan food and their options. My family still talks about this place months later. I definitely recommend this place!

Sort of well labeled w several Ⓥ options

Jinya is a nice ramen stop. Very boisterous and active when I went. Serves meat. Everything we ordered was good. There are several vegan options (not a ton, but several / maybe five?) but the drawback is they don’t label Ⓥ on the menu - just vegetarian. So you have to ask for clarification on anything. Edamame was delicious and the creamy ramen was very good. Small servings. Reasonably priced. My partner ordered the Impossible tacos and Impossible bun. That’s a Ⓥ disagreement between us as I don’t consider Impossible products Ⓥ due to their animal testing practices (in cosmetics and hygiene, a company wouldn’t get even a cruelty-free label, let alone a vegan label if they tested their products in animals no matter what the ingredients are). Anyway … nice spot with some vegan options!

Best vegan ramen I’ve had

Would give this vegan ramen 5 stars if the app let me. Of three vegan ramen dishes offered, I chose non-creamy w miso broth and asked for extra spice on the side. Toppings and ramen perfect, broth (where other places fall short) divine- deep, rich, layered flavours, perfect on a rainy day and worth every penny. Shared vegan gyoza w an omni friend- we both loved them. Service was truly excellent. Jinya will be my go-to the next time I’m in Vancouver.

Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen

I was happy to see a few vegan ramen options here. I wanted to order the Flying Vegan Harvest the second time I went, but stuck with the Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen. I added broccoli. It’s expensive here, but it’s a nice treat every now & then. It won’t disappoint you!!

Cons: Expensive

Definitely one of my favourite vegan ramens in the city. The noodles are good and the broth is super flavourful. I personally prefer a firmer tofu than what they offer, but still good. Wish they offered more vegan options. Especially appetizers.

Pros: A couple vegan options , Flavourful , Good portion sizes

Cons: Expensive , Not many vegan appies

Go for the Flying Vegan Ramen

I had been a big fan of Jinya in 2019 but got tired of eating their only vegan option after a while. However, now they have expanded their options and the flying vegan ramen is my new favorite ramen in the city! I would describe it closest to tan tan mien, it has a beautiful ma to the broth and the toppings all mix together in a balanced way. Definitely go and try it out, even if you have been to Jinya before!

Separate vegan menu, fast service, delicious

I was surprised with how fast service was, despite the fact that it’s a pretty big restaurant and was very busy at lunch.

There is a separate vegan menu now, on the regular menu’s cover itself (see photo). I ordered the spicy ramen and the vegan bun, and they were both delicious.

Inside was a bit loud during busy lunch, but the staff was very courteous and super efficient. Great!

Pros: Separate vegan menu, Very quick service, Not super expensive

Cons: A bit loud

Great vegetarian options

Restaurant has great ramen!
They have several options of ramen for vegetarians as well as small starters. One of the best vegetarian ramens I had. The broth was thick and had a lot of flavour.
Great if you love ramen but also have company of friends who want meat options. Make sure to go there and reserv a seat, long que outside.

We also tried the house sake that was dangerously good!

Pros: Great vegetarian options, Cozy

Cons: Can be a long que

You can add toppings, but the portion is already big! The atmosphere is awesome, very crowded usually. Very expensive but worth it!
