Wouldn't surprise me if the No Bull location on Kingston Rd gets a similar posting at some point. Place is filthy. Garbage bin outside always overflowing with gross stuff and grease.

There are no specifics here. They could mean that the hand soap was out or no paper towels I'm the ladies room.

just a reminder to people that YELLOW is a conditional pass, so they are allowed to continue to operate until inspectors come back to the establishment within 24-48 hrs. They can get their GREEN back very quickly if they just make their adjustments. It can be the littlest of things that can give them their yellow and obviously everyone should take the yellow with a grain of salt but please don't completely stop supporting these establishments.

Bahn Mi Boys got their green license back two days later so lets not freak out.

Not surprised by Ryoji... First time I ate there, the char siu was cold, went back again and had bad indigestion... Gave it a third and final try, and my boyfriend and I both had such horrible stomach aches that we could barely walk home. Never had this happen at any of the other ramen shops... Go to Santouka, Sansotei, Kinton, Kingyo, Isshin... They're all better.
