Amazing Vegan Menu!

This place is amazing. They have a full vegan menu with tons of options and iterations. Best. Ramen. Ever. Choose from different broths to spiciness levels, add one (vegan hard boiled egg!) so so good. They also jade gyoza and other items as well, all vegan.

They do serve meat, but they will give you an option of which menu you want.

Pros: Great food, Lots of choice

Cons: Very long lines to get in usually

If I could give this restaurant a five star review, I would!

We lined up outside (Wednesday night @
5:45 pm) for just under 1 hour but once inside, the food was definitely worth the wait.

The medium spice vegan negi-goma tofu ramen and vegan gyoza were both fresh, piping hot, nutritious and absolutely delicious.

The food arrived very promptly after ordering and the customer service was excellent.

Delicious vegan ramen that explodes with flavor!

Wow, we chose this spot due to other reviews on Happy Cow, and we are so glad we came here! The queue was long on a sunny Monday afternoon, but we were seated within 20 minutes. Whilst it isn't solely vegan, it was encouraging to see vegan signage outside. The ramen itself was absolutely bursting with flavour and had a good amount of spice. It was incredibly delicious and, without a doubt, the best ramen I have ever had. I highly recommend coming here. The wait you may have is well worth it!

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Delicious & flavourful , Would give 5 star, if I could.

Excellent ramen 😋

Gotta love clearly labeled plant-based items! Go here for your ramen cravings and try the gyoza. Broth and noodles were exceptional.

Pros: Several vegan items, Fast service, Customizable dishes

Cons: Small dining space

Super ramen!

The plant-based/vegan ramen sign out front & recommendation from friends made us try this place out & we were not disappointed. My husband had the miso ramen & I got the classic rekko spicy ramen with added mushroom & tofu. Both tasted amazing!

Pros: 4 vegan broth options to choose from, Fast service , Clean environment

Cons: Line to get in can be long.. but moves quickly , Adding tofu, mushroom, vegan egg, raises prices

Delicious ramen!

The great thing about this place is that it offers vegan options, while being from a non western culture. Im so happy that other cultures from around the world are starting to recognize vegans. Its awesome that they are starting to help us be able to experience the foods we once enjoyed without the guilt. The overall experience was great, however, i personally would argue to put more attention on strictly vegan restaurants as they are helping the problem more. However this is one of the only places where you can get authentic vegan Japanese ramen right now, so its something to enjoy once in a while. One tip, if you are planning on trying the vegan hard boiled egg, just dont. Its very tasteless and kind of a waste of money but i guess it was kinda cool to look at it.

Pros: Decent amount of vegan options, Very kind staff

Cons: Not super pricey but it can add up, Wish there were more options

Good Ramen small menu

The Ramen are tasty-a bit salty- and the gyoza are good. The vege menu is quite limited but good. Staff is friendly, I would return for Ramen there anytime.

Pros: Good food, reasonably priced

Cons: Ramen is salty

Big bowl o' salt

I'd eaten enough ramen in Japan before and after going vegan while living there, but this was hands down the saltiest bowl I've ever had. I even told my server I wanted a less salty option when deciding on the type...it wasn't inedible, but unless I know it can be scaled back, I won't return.

The gyoza, however, were phenomenal.

Pros: vegan options for all ramen, gyoza now vegan, pretty authentic

Cons: unbelievably salty, a little pricey

Great ramen

I'm really glad they have vegan options now and I can finally go back to my favorite ramen place before going vegan😄You can veganize any of the four ramen they offer, and customize your order (spiciness, noodle type, etc). I tried both the miso ramen and shio ramen, and I prefer the miso ramen as it comes with thicker and more flavorful broth.

Pros: great vegan options

Cons: not a super balanced meal
