Tips from the Net @ Marutama Ra-men

My favourite place to go for ramen. Chicken based broth. Worth the drive. Sometimes there's a wait, so we go on off hours. Try the aka-ramen. Spicy goodness! GooglePlace - January 2018

My favorite ramen place in all of Downtown Vancouver. Took my family here from out of town. We had to wait 20 minutes since we had a group of 6, but that’s normal whenever I come with a large group since they have limited seating. My family loved it. It was so delicious that they ate everything. The broth is so unique compared to other ramen shops I’ve been to. Best meal to have during the winter. GooglePlace - January 2018

Have tried many Ramen shops in the area, and thought this was the best. Also, not as busy or expensive as some of the others, which is a great plus GooglePlace - January 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

Rich and thick chicken bone soup! Loved the soup so much. We had to wait a long time outside in the cold but it was super worth it! They totally rushed us out of the restaurant and I didn't appreciate that because she made me pay before I even finished eating. But after seeing the long line up of people waiting outside, I could sort of understand the rush. GooglePlace - December 2017
