We had to wait a few minutes for a table but that was part of the fun really. Watching this tiny place abuzz with activity while we waited added to the excitement. The staff were so friendly and kind and couldn't do enough. We sat at a bench in front of the kitchen which was great entertainment - the chefs... More

The noodles are amazing and everything seems to be very fresh. Beware that you have to get a ticket and queue, but it's definitely worth it.

Always a great place to come to for lunch. We were seated quickly (we usually expect to wait as it's so busy) and ordered two "A" specials. Great service, great Ramen. It has a great model and hasn't differed in over a year. We love it! Please note: they only take cash!! No card!

We used to dine all the time here. It's slowly gone down hill in the last year. Waited last night as usual, 30 mins. They stuffed up our orders completely. They forgot drinks, no extras in majority of the meals that we had asked for. We wanted to pay individual like we always do EVERYTIME we go there & the... More

I tried it because it has good reviews. The staff is friendly and upbeat. I tried the gen-ten. It's simple, light and flavorful. It hits the spot on a raining day!

Eat there both time during lunch, had mugen premium gold and ikemen. They had special lunch combo which you can get certain side dishes for less. The free flow of tea is a nice touch. Food wise is not the best but great and always fill my tummy well. Great value.

Just had dinner at Ganbaranba with my family. I had the miso ramen (foto below) and it was pretty good. I wouldn't say it is one of the best ramen I've ever had, but it's a decent cost/benefit meal in Cairns, where everything seems to cost twice what they should. In this sense, gioza and ramen at Ganbaranba for four... More
