Excellent ramen & accompaniments. Probably the best in Vancouver. They have done a nice job creating a unique Asian-Canadian feel to the place. Staff provides excellent service and prices are reasonable. Worth reserving a table. Right on the corner of Robson and Richards. Walkable to downtown or to BC Place/ Rogers. We love to go before the Canucks games.

We were seated quickly and were asked if we had dined before. As it was out first time, our server went thru the menu and offered suggestions, which ultimately led to her picking my meal. The broccoli appetizer and octopus balls were amazing. We both had ramen -chicken and vegan(I’m not vegan but this was suggested for the broth and it was excellent)and spice levels were offered at different levels. Service was outstanding with everyone that walked by helping take glasses, plates away and asking us how we were doing. We were heading to the hockey game and were in and out in just over an hour. We would dine here again and have already recommended it. Yummy!

A great place to get ramen in Vancouver (one of the very best). Excellent service, great vibe, super central location. Food was all very good and extremely filling.

The food average for the cost. If a restaurant's food is more important to you than its ambience (Jinya is very lively, like a lounge or bar), there are other ramen places along Robson that serve better food at better prices.

The food at JINYA is always great, but the service is either a hit or miss. When I was dining there yesterday I ordered some happy hour drinks, the server ended up spilling one of the drinks all over me. Please only take what you know you can carry!

Great overall experience from the food to the service. Was quite loud in the restaurant, had some difficulty talking to each other but it was a Friday night.

the "welcome" is way too loud and overly exaggerated and irritates the already seated diners.

This place has some of the best ramen, hands down. I've gone to many places in a variety of cities, and this has to be the best. I've gotten the chicken ramen each time and the broth is so silky. I just wish their plum wine was a 4 ounce pour instead of a 3 ounce pour. That way, I wouldn't have to buy doubles.

Probably some of the best ramen in Vancouver. Expect a wait but expect deliciousness once you're in. Highly recommend the "nowait" app to see lines for the place so that you can stroll / drink while you wait.

The DT location is too noisy. The music is too loud.

Everyone was yelling. I could not evenly hear what the others said. And the waitress seems already is used to that, so she just used her normal voice volume, which I cound not hear at all. So I had to ask her repeat again and again.

I though the restaurant owner wants to make everyone feel that the restaurant is very lively and busy by using this way, which is true. However, I would not refer my friends to go there if we have other options next time.
