Waited for 15 minutes without a single server approaching us. They blindly gave our reserved table away.

My reservation didn’t seem to help with getting a table. After waiting for 10 minutes for someone to acknowledge me, we were seated and the ignored for 20 minutes without so much as an offer for a drink. My date and I decided to cut our losses and leave.

Add more server as your place is way too busy for two servers only

We chose this restaurant over many others according to the menu and reviews. We were very pleased with our experience and enjoyed our anniversary meal. Minako was our server and she was wonderful and very helpful and pleasant. She really helped make our special occasion extra special. I look forward to going again.

The ramen is always great - no matter what bowl you choose.
As well if you’re a sushi lover this place has some of the best in Calgary.
Last, the Sake selection has enough variety depending on your taste and price point.
A place I frequent often and a place I will continue to do so!

Mushroom Ramen was BLAND. They used Crimino and White Button mushrooms opposed to more fragrant Asian Shitake and Oysters. They did throw in a couple Enoki...but just to make it look different. It was quite a disappointment. Not a place I would recommend for authentic Ramen. I would only recommend it if you wanted a fusion creative type ramen. Other than that it was overrated online.

The server was alone and could have used some help. He tried his best, but couldn’t keep up with all the tables. Food sat for a while before being served, items forgot.
Soup was good though.

Nice place to get a bowl of ramen. The broth was a bit too salty for us though. The char siu pork and chicken were nice and tender. The egg was perfect. I added the yuzu spicy paste and I would highly recommend it.

OpenTable made it easy to book a spot during their dinner rush.

We arrived during happy hour and had lots of choice of sushi apps with our Ramen. We have been there numerous times and the food is consistently great. The service is wonderful and the food served timely. Highly recommended. Only challenge has been getting parking on busy days.

They didn’t have a table for 2 available (I had made a reservation for Valentine’s day) but the delicious food and great service more than made up for that.

We had dinner at Ikemen before the opera last Saturday. The crowd was young and the place had a good vibe. I am personally not a big fan of the communal tables as I find it hard to carry on a conversation with my friends but that seems to be a trend these days. The Unagi Poutine was very good but the ramen was just ok. I would try it again for sushi but I would go elsewhere for ramen. Our server was excellent!

Was on the hunt for a good creme brûlée with my gf. A friend recommended ikemen and we were not disappointed. Ordered some rolls as well and they were delicious and was suprised to see the bill come out to only 60 bucks. Definitely coming back.

Ikemen - My son loves the food at Ikemen. From the unique Unami poutine to the delicious Gyoza - the good is always hot, tasty and great value. The service is efficient and friendly. It was his bday and it was the place to go for him and now he has introduced a few of his friends to Ikemen. They all say they will be back!

Very good food. Heat wasn’t running when we got there. Cold day outside so it wasn’t very cozy. They turned on heat after I requested it. Good service. Will be back.

I believe that it is a bit over rated to be the BEST Ramen in Calgary. We had way better ramen in Toronto and Kuma Yama at Lake Louise make more delicious ramen and more ingredients than this restaurant. However, the Asian provided decent service to us, not the man because we are Asians.

Went in for lunch on a Wednesday and the place was not that busy. Tried both the Shio and Miso Ramen and they were both excellent. Soup is a chicken stock base instead of pork, but it's very flavourful. The noodles were chewey as well.
