Tips from the Net @ Marutama Ra-men

This is the first time I stopped by after hearing many great reviews! The soup is chicken based and perfectly seasoned that you can easily finish all the soup! I found the regular noodles were cooked a little to soft for my tasting. Next time around, I'm definitely going to ask for al dente! Definitely worth stopping by again. GooglePlace - March 2018

This place is truly amazing. The chicken stock ramen is exceptional. There was a bit of a wait to get in. About 20 min. Well worth it. Best to go at the not so busy times. Still. The service is fast. And prices are reasonable. One of the best ramen places in the Downtown Robson street neighbourhood. GooglePlace - March 2018

This is by far my favorite ramen restaurant in Vancouver. I've started my obsession with ramen two years back and have eaten my way through the city. Marutama makes deliciously rich broth and has the perfect balance of toppings. The seaweed gives the broth extra creaminess. I could eat there every day. GooglePlace - March 2018

Food came in no time. Service was quick as expected. There were few menus in this restaurant. Price were reasonable.5/5 quantity 4.5/5 taste was awesome. I was surprise that all seats were filled but the seats flows really smoothly. Thumb up GooglePlace - February 2018

The food is great; from their excellent broth and noodles to the quality of their soft boiled eggs (I'm so tired of places that serve cold soft boiled eggs with their meals; it's a delight to see Marutama get it right). Easy access to a bus line and a gorgeous walk by the water make it a nice spot to take in an evening. Amusingly, this location is right by another ramen favorite of mine; but I come here for different reasons. I go there if I want to be with people and laugh, but I come here if I want to be alone. I think it's the ambience and the layout, but Marutama always feels like the sort of place to hide away from the world and the rain beneath waves of soft jazz. It's the sort of place to lose yourself and I'd highly recommend it for anyone who wants to vanish for a little while. I will say though... it's not the best place to be if you're a larger person (breadth or height). More than a few times I've watched tall people smack their heads against the lip of the kitchen counter when sitting at the bar, and the space between seats can feel intimate when you're elbow to elbow. It's honestly not a detractor from the experience if you like that sort of thing; but it's worth noting. GooglePlace - January 2018
