The Perfect Temperature for Delicious Soup Ramen Santouka on Robson Street opened its door on February 26th 2010. Since then we have served over 140,000 customers who have a sophisticated taste and high expectations for ramen. As our motto “The Perfect Temperature for Delicious Soup” expresses that we put serious efforts into our soup. That does not mean soup gets all of our attention. Excellent customer service, friendly and enjoyable restaurant atmosphere as well as perfect food safety have always been our principles. To prepare our mild, pearl-colored Tonkotsu soup, we take the time to slowly simmer pork bones before adding vegetables, dried fish, kelp and other special ingredients. We value the exceptional flavor and aroma of our signature soup and ensure that boiling does not diminish it. Although some of you may believe that the soup may not be hot enough, we purposefully maintain the soup at its optimal temperature to best preserve the flavor to be enjoyed thoroughly.

Tips from the Net @ Hokkaido Ramen Santouka 山頭火

The ramen here is always good. The portion is perfect for me as well, but I enjoy the extra chashu occasionally. The soup is fattier than other ramen places I've been in but it's very delicious. The service is always fast. The lineups on weekends are a bit of a pain so I try to avoid them by going on weekdays and odd times. GooglePlace - February 2018

My first visit is probably 5 years ago. Always very pleasant experience, very consistent. won't go wrong with any choices on the menu. GooglePlace - February 2018

Your food may be good, but it doesn't seem like the men's bathroom toilet has been flushed, or in working standard for quite some time since I yacked up what I ate, just being in it. GooglePlace - January 2018

My personal favorite ramen shop in all of Vancouver. Not too many options, but everything is great. There is quite often a line (especially on weekends) and seating can get very cramped. I stopped going to this location since the West Broadway shop opened up a few months ago, as that one is a lot more spacious. However, this location is my #1 recommendation for ramen in downtown. Expect quick and friendly service regardless of how busy it is! GooglePlace - January 2018

A great ramen place. Friendly staff and quick service. It's fun to sit at the bar and watch the cook's prepare the soup. You could easily be in and out of there in 10 minutes if that's what you're looking for. I was quite unimpressed with the miso broth and would recommend people avoid it, but I'm still giving 5 stars because I've tried the other soups which were all delicious. GooglePlace - November 2017
