Quick, yummy and cheap. We always eat here when we're in Banff. Hubby loves the won ton ramen soup. Place is very small and always full. Located right on the avenue.

Gyoza was heated up in the microwave. And BBQ pork ramen tasted pathetic. It's the only one ramen place in Banff. Otherwise we would not go there. Very sad.
