Normally because I write a lot its only best I come on about this straight. IT IS DELICIOUS AND WORTHWHILE!!!!😍 (Warning big speech) Fooderies and restaurants would normally follow a set of trends that would easily mirror the common interests of many patrons, this restaurant is not likely within range of following many food trends from easy meals to luxuriously overrated material; it bends to its own choice of style while incorporating the flavours Taiwanese and Japanese cuisine into its diverse menu. This stylish mixture of two famously acclaimed food cultures are both invigorating and adaptive when all dishes blend Japanese recipes and ingredients to the Taiwanese varient, thus exploratory and innovative when walking in expecting the unexpected or the expected based on the reasonable stereotype of assuming what kind of Asian based restaurant will serve. Hence why the elegant serve of food is plenty and although small in stature it makes up with serviceable experience met with attentive staff and tasty menu choices which I first felt curious yet uncertain. But it goes to show doesn't it: you can't assume until you've tried it. The chicken recipes are tender and crunchy with the texture so delicious you'd wish you'd order more. Noodle dishes are plentiful and are usually my first choice along with their delectably iconic side dish of sashimi salmon. These are just few of their outstanding and increasingly engaging menu choices which I will promise you to my enthusiastic opinion is passionate and appealing by presentation both delivery and in-house serving. If you ask me, which you probably are not or if you are, I'm going back for more and it's easy to say you either like it or not, but if it's easy to say both, then it's staggers me when I admit that it's even easier wanting to go back for more when I'm truly immersed by their kind and attentive staff and their diverse range of desirably edible choice of culinary indulgence. Eat up I say! And make sure you go at night too if you up for a fancy feast made easy to satisfy. See less

Even after trying some newcomers this is still the best ramen in Canberra by far. Great pesc and vegan options too, which combined with a relaxed setting and ample drinks range would be perfect for a first date. Seating is fairly limited though, so be sure to book for dinner. See less

"Best Ramen in Canberra & I've tried them all" by the Bento Tei owner who recommended White Chaco to us during our visit. To his credit the meals met expectations. Highly recommend. Bookings advised if eating in. See less

Great little restaurant tucked away on busy Lonsdale street. Modern asian cuisine delivering plenty of flavour and new taste experiences based on a Taiwanese influence backed up by excellent service. A somewhat limited wine list. See less

One of the good places to have ramen near the city. It definitely is not the best there is, but if you're looking for a good bowl of non-traditional ramen at a good price, this place would satisfy. I would say that their ramen is more flavourful or richer than those of the resto almost in front of them. Their flavors are definitely unique and earthy. I had the black sesame ramen recently, and the truffle one less than a year back. I love how their chashu pork are a bit charred on the outside. For less than $20 for a bowl of ramen, you'd get a good portion of high-quality meat and other toppings with perfectly-cooked half egg. I'd say they really offer good value ramen as compared with other places offering ramen around Canberra. Their service is also very quick and very friendly. We got served just a few minutes after ordering. Why 4 stars only? It's just not as memorable as the other places. It's not the kind of resto that I would have on the top of my head when I think of ramen or fusion food. Perhaps they need to think of something else that would make their dishes a bit more memorable. See less

Disappointing. Would advise against ordering salmon sashimi as delivery. Smaller pieces, and also not seared. See less

Really nice place and friendly staff. Very chic. However, there was plastic in my meal and when I showed them that they offered to refund just that plate and not the broader meal. That’s a little problematic for me. That’s why they’re getting two stars. See less

The food was amazing, but the drinks and service were slow. We only got our drinks when having our main courses, plus we waited for quite a while to place the orders. The staff also didn’t apologise for their delay as well. We understand it was peak hour, but we hope better service can be provided next time. Will absolutely come back given the quality of food See less

Amazing food! We tried the chong qing popcorn chicken, braised pork belly rice, sichuan beef bao and steamed gyoza. All had excellent differences in flavour and texture and were consistently of high quality. Would highly recommend. See less

The best ramen in canberra right now. It is average by sydney standards, but you either drive for 3 hours for better ramen or you take a pretty good bowl here. The soup was nice. Not a thick tonkotsu like Gumshara though, so don't get your hopes up. The real star of the dish though, were the chashu pieces (not visible in photo) - deliciously smokey pieces of meat balanced with delicately soft layers of fat. They ultimately made an average sort of ramen bowl (by Sydney standards) great. The addition of wakame in the pork ramen was jarring though - this felt unusual and quite unneeded. It cheapened the dish. The place had sake and a decent range at that. Ie something thats solid like dassai, rather than the kinda gross like hakushika a lot of places like to flog. White chaco shines here because they don't fail any of the main elements while having that really delectable smokey chashu and that's all you can really ask for. Right now, this place tops 'Ramen O', in belconnen which recently opened up. While the best ramen in Sydney is going to be made by a Japanese person, Canberra's not Sydney - give the mandarin chattering staff a chance. See less

We love this Asian restaurant. Their dishes are Taiwanese, Japanese and Chinese fusion. They made some special taste that never try before. We had Taiwan style popcorn chicken, Braised pork belly rice, Double smoked eel rice, Chaco Ramen Black and Truffle Ramen. All of them are very nice and delicious! See less

Great spot for ramen with a bit of a twist. The yellow ramen is my favourite - thick and a great umami flavour. The green/lime ramen was also tasty and the thin noodles had a nice bite to them. The menu offers a fusion of Japanese and Taiwanese dishes. The space is cosy and well decorated. See less

Quite a decent ramen place. The place is quite small so there's little to move around. The place can get noisy so if you want a peace and quiet place, not for you. The eel is the star of our order. Really well cooked and just taste nice. The black sesame ramen is flavourful and balanced. Overall, it's a nice lunch. See less
