The chain first opened in Toronto in 2012 and operates under the umbrella of the Canadian-owned Kinka Family restaurant group. The brand has over ten locations in Ontario and several in Montreal. This Vancouver location will be the concept’s first in Western Canada.

Patrons will be able to enjoy authentic Japanese ramen and a casual atmosphere. Five different styles of ramen will be served with the diner’s choice of either slow-cooked pork or chicken broth.

There are also a number of vegetarian options such as original, Shoyu, Miso, Spicy Garlic, and Spicy Jalapeno, as well as the choice for thick, thin, or shirataki noodles.
