In the centre of town, this little gem is a great place for a quick bite in Cairns. Busy but fast turn around - grab a number and wait for your turn (about 10 minutes when we visited 7pm on a Thursday night). There are about 13 noodle dishes and you can choose soft , medium or hard noodles. Fast... More

My partner and I decided to check this place out after reading all the reviews and the queue! It definitely did not disappoint. The menu is extensive and it was really hard to pick, we ended up choosing number 2 and 6. Both lived up to the 'hype' the broth really stood out for me, the noodles were also really... More

We had to wait, but they have a very efficient system to keep track of who is waiting. The wait went pretty quickly. The Ramen was very good.

Our party of 4 stopped in for lunch, all 3 servings of ramen were fantastic! Noodles are cooked to your liking, soft medium or hard, the broth was hearty and full of flavour, and all were big servings. Prices range from $10-13, you can add side dishes at a cheaper price if you get the lunch set. Gyoza was ok,... More

Chanced on this whilst trapeizing around for a place to eat. Wholesome portions freshly prepared. Spiced up with chilli paste. Friendly service. Cash only though. Highly recommend.

I'm still coming to terms with how amazing my meal just was. If you like ramen just the tiniest bit and you're in Cairns, you must try this place. I'm vegan, and often it can be difficult to find a good option, especially at Asian eateries. The staff were perfectly accommodating and lovely, will be going back!

Better Ramen that the ones I had in Japan! I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone that goes to Cairns. I would go there again next time I visit Cairns
