    Fantastic ramen. Make sure to try the pork jowl ramen, salt flavored. Consider 10 to 15 minute wait time before you get seated around lunch time. Crowded dining area with no privacy, but fun.

    Long line ups for lunch! Make sure all the members of your party are here to get a seat. Washrooms are dirty

    Love their Shoyu Ramen! Milky, creamy, rich broth! Pork cheek is tender, melt in your mouth! Always a line-up... try off hours!

    Delicious ramen. Price was decent. Hard to find seating though. Try not to go in a big party (4+) during dinner hours

    The best ramen I've had outside of Japan. Ironically enough, it's a Japanese chain. But that's what makes it authentic and awesome.

    Amazing ramen that comes in many varieties and in reasonable portions. Only place in Vancouver where tsuke-men (egg noodles ramen to dip in broth) is served.

    The food is amazing but the service is a shit. I went with a friend we didn't even finished our ramens that the waitress was already waiting with the bill.

    I've had Santouka in KL and I must say that this is much better. I tried the Shio and I loved it. Go early to avoid the queues.

    Not a veg-friendly establishment. I suggest making the trek down the street to Kingyo for some seriously spectacular Japanese.

    Kara Miso Ramen all day... Make sure to ask for garlic on the side and drop some in. You'll like the balance it gives the ramen broth.

    Shio Ramen tasty but too salty for me. Kimchi was really good, just a little spicy. Look for Santouka sign, otherwise u will not find it
