I popped in and asked the server what they would recommend. The tonkotsu ramen - either spicy or not - was recommended. I chose the spicy version with wheat ramen noodles, pork bone broth, bean sprouts, half of a boiled egg, green onion, mushroom, sliced pork, corn and dried seaweed. Wow. I am looking forward to coming back and working... More

After a disappointing lunch at another Kensington ramen restaurant, we got the courage to try again and found our way to Menyatai. What a great little spot and it was total ramen redemption. The first improvement from our previous foray was the service. We were greeted and shown to a table within a minute of our arrival. It irritates me... More

This smaller restaurant at the fringes of Kensington is a delicious spot for a quick bowl of ramen. Highly recommend the curry ramen!

The restaurant is small, but the atmosphere is very casual. Enjoyed the Ramen. Pleasant staff. Small waiting area so if you're there right at a meal time you might be waiting especially on a weekend. Menyatai is located on a side street in trendy Kensington area.

This restaurant is off of Kensington road, so it is not easy to spot. This is the fourth business in this locale in the past eight years, and this one is going strong for four years. This is a testament to the good food, good service, and reasonable prices. They have a robust menu of udon, ramen, and rice dishes... More

As the title says, I loved the Tonkotsu and the Spicy Tonkotsu (although I thought it lacked a bit of spiciness). The noodles were the perfect consistency, springy and al dente. The pork was very flavourful. The value was very good and portion was satisfiying. Unfortunately the service takes away quite a bit from the experience. I would give 3.5... More

My partner and i discovered this unassuming neighborhood gem only because we happened to park in front for a walk in the youthful and charming neighborhood of Kensington. It was after 2 pm and the waitress kindly informed us the kitchen was closing soon, so we had just one chance to order whatever. We were pleasantly surprised with the high... More

The food and service here is great - some of the best ramen I've had. The space itself is pretty small, we were seated by the door/register which takes away from the experience, but not so much that you can't enjoy your food. Definitely will come back.

We often come here as the ramen broth is specially deep and hearty. The pork belly and egg are nicely done and the portions are generous. If you find yourself waiting for a table they always manage to find a spot for you in a few minutes. Very friendly staff.

Food and service are both good. We had ramen and the noodle are not soggy like some other Japanese restaurant and they don't have to give you dry garlic slices or chili powder to enhance the taste because the soup already quite tasty. Ingredients are fresh an MSG usage is low because we didn't feel dry mouth afterward. If you... More
