The Japanese film Tampopo was marketed as the world’s first “ramen western”. It’s the story of two truck drivers, Goro & Gun, who use their culinary expertise to change the fate of a struggling noodle shop. The passion those two characters showed for the art of noodle-making lives on at Calgary’s 150-seat noodle bar — lead by executive chef Ryusuke Araki. Located on Stephen Avenue, upstairs on the plus 15 level, the restaurant melds modern art graphics with the distinctive hardwood and right angles of Japanese decor. Tuck into a steaming bowl of ramen with our house-made noodles, made even better with a smoked aji tama egg. Or depart from noodle fare with house specialties like the tuna poke or pork steam buns. Our menu boasts a variety of vegetarian, gluten, and dairy free options. Whenever possible, dishes are prepared using wild fish instead of farmed. Complete your meal with one of 30 sakes from Goro & Gun’s curated selection.

    Anyone can chuck noodles in a bowl with broth and call it "Ramen". The difference here is the astonishingly deep variety of layers that Chef Araki manages to slide into a simple bowl of Tonkotsu. A flash of ginger, a pop of miso, the distinctive spring of a perfectly cooked noodle, and a sliver of porky delight make this a lunch experience that you promise yourself you will be back soon to savour again. And - spend the extra few bucks to add the rich, sultry smokiness of an aji tama egg to your bowl. Cap that with Goro & Gun's expert understanding that weekday lunches need to be quick - no wonder this place has become a plus-fifteen institution downtown. Ambience shmambience - while it WOULD be nice to have some outside light come streaming in, that's soon forgotten once the bowls arrive...

    The Staff did a great job of taking care of me, I had to book for 4 and then an extra guest came along with the client. The hostess managed to squeeze us in and the quality of the restaurant and the food took over from there.

    Fantastic ramen - easily my favourite in the city. Staff are fantastic and helpful. I'd consider this a mid to higher end Japanese restaurant. They have gluten free ramen too.

    The biggest issue was the service. The food was subpar at best and when I asked for some chillies for my ramen I was offered oil or paste, I asked if I could have a bit of both. When I got my bill I was charged $1.00 for each. It was disheartening that the waitress didn’t mention that there was a charge for condiments that are usually free especially when she noticed that I was undecided about the options and likely just wanted to add some additional layers of flavour to the meal that was lacking in this department.

    Our visit was spoiled by the rudeness displayed by our server. She may have been new to the job but her demeanor and attitude were not what one would expect to find in a restaurant, let alone in a server. Other than that, the food was fine and the place quiet and welcoming.

    Despite good service and ambience. Sushi taste like just came out of refrigerator of any random supermarket. Ramen soup too salty. Cocktail so so.. Consider to price, it’s not worth it.

    We made a reservation for 5pm for a birthday celebration. Just before 6pm as we were finish the food - no dessert or anything, I tried to order another drink and was told that they were actually looking to close early because it was slow. The kitchen had already closed, so no chance to order more food or a dessert for the birthday guest and we were given the bill and asked to leave. We drove all the way here, with the plan to enjoy a nice meal and a few drinks and instead we were rushed out the door on a Saturday night after 45min. If they wanted to close early they shouldn’t have accepted reservations on a Saturday night with the instructions stating that we had at least 90min to 2hrs to enjoy our food. Not only was this a truly disappointing experience it was embarrassing for me who had planned a birthday dinner and timed the rest of our evenings activities around this.

    We made a reservation for 5pm and when we arrived they told us we could only stay until 5:15pm. We decided to stay and had a few happy hour items. The food was great, but they were kind of rushing us and they shouldn't have accepted a 5pm reservation if they were going to try and push us out as quickly as possible.

    Sign says please wait to be seated Waited almost 10 minutes, no one came to greet us, walked in to the bar and was told to sit down 'over there' Ordered drinks and an appy Server brought 1 of us a drink and appy, ordered meal. The others drink came when the meal came which was about 8 minutes later, not enough time to finish appy. Food was pretty good, reduced menu until things pick up I presume

    The food is absolutely fantastic. The ambience was great. As this is located inside a mall, it did take awhile to find an entrance into the mall that was unlocked but that’s not the establishments fault. It is pricier then expected (going off the $$ on open table) but the food was really great. Also just heads up the hours on google maps app aren’t correct.

    Took about 7-8 minutes to seat me while my party was already seated. Needed more staff at the front to process payment as well as welcome and seat patrons. Online menu was not accurate, so looking at the menu in advance served no purpose. Service was awkward and almost nagging.

    Given the rise in cases due to the omicron variant, it was pretty quiet when I went. I had a whole booth to myself to celebrate paying off my student loan and it was a very nice happy hour. Their vegan options are legit.
