This restaurant (which is small) has the best Bao's (buns with different fillings) and Soups ever. They have several types of soups with noodles and other ingrediants to mild to very hot. The broths are so tasty & delicious to live for. They always have a special or two for the day. This a must try restaurant.

My first time there and the Tan Tan Men soup was delicious with wonderfully complex flavour... an instant favourite!

I've eaten here 3 times this week, and I'll probably go back tomorrow. The Tan Tan Men is my favourite with the Pork Belly Ramen a very close second. Yesterday I was staring lovingly into my Tan Tan Men and I realized if this place ever closes I'm going to have to get the recipe or else live the rest of my life feeling unsatisfied. The Bao buns are amazing, too. Every time I go I have to get half of my ramen to go but the staff are always pleasant and happy to offer to do the sloppy transfer for me. They also offer modifications for vegans and vegetarians!

Took my family here to try out and it exceeded all expectations. The food was so fresh and tasty and the buns don't look large but very filling. I am bigger guy and 4 filled me and I left wishing I could eat more. I planning going back on my next trip to Victoria to try the buns I did not have. The pork was criminal in how good it was. It does not look like much inside but don't let that discourage you from having a really good meal.
