This is great place to have Ramen. We have been there few times and never disappointed us (apart from one time - we were thinking of doing take away but been told that they don’t do take away for noodle). Nice compact Japanese style decoration....More

Hi Simon, thanks for the great review. FYI - we do have takeaway at our Surfers Paradise shop now! :)

Been only once but was blown away. Loved that every part of the ramen has a choice and selection for firmness or richness or spicyness. Anniversary dinner hear we come

It’s no surprise that Danbo Ramen 🍜 is THE place for Ramen. Everything is fresh, made to perfection & best of all, is served fast. 🍜 The Southport franchise is quite small so waiting in a queue for a seat or feeling a bit squished...More

日本人からするとそんな感動的!な物ではないかも知れませんが、味は安定してるし、オープン当初より良くなった気がします。ランチタイムだったので餃子も別で頼むより数も多く割安になりますよと親切に教えてくれました。出て来た餃子もカリッと熱く、小さめがラーメンと一緒に食べるには丁度良い感じ。写真も撮ってもらい、スタッフも親切でしたし、清潔なのが良いですね。欲を言えばもう少しスープが多いと嬉しいです。 Quite good ramen in Gold Coast. Same quality any days and make own favourite ramen. Kitchen and tables are clean, staffs are kind and friendly. I hope little bit more soup in the bowl please.

I went here today after reading the reviews, and having a Ramen craving all day, and must say it didn't disappoint. It was really tasty and didn't leave you a greasy after taste. The staff was friendly. If I have to be picky about something...More

We’ve been to Ramen Danbo six or seven times now and we have always had an excellent experience. My personal favourite is the Rekka Ramen with it’s rich, spicy umami flavoured broth. We often have our 2-year son in tow and he is always welcomed...More

Heard a lot of Danbo and went there to try it out. I love how we can choose the firmness of the ramen. It is one of the best ramen in Gold Coast so far in my opinion. Must try!

Thank you for the great review - make sure you give the firm ramen a try next time (if you haven't already done so)! :)

特別なものはなく、ラーメンの味は普通です。餃子を頼んだのですが、美味しくなかったです。博多屋やその辺にあるラーメン屋と同じです。店員さんの態度もとても悪かったです。もういいかな。 With all the excellent reviews I came here with a lot of excitement. But the ramen was average, the gyoza wasn’t even a little juicy and the customer service was terrible. I don’t think I’ll go back again.More

Description
Bringing authentic tonkotsu ramen to first the Gold Coast and then to Australia! The original Ramen Danbo shop opened in the year 2000 in the town of Chikushino, located halfway between Hakata and Kurume in Fukuoka, located on the southern island of Kyushu, with a unique focus on quality and taste. After placing number one in a TV poll of top ramen shops, from humble beginnings, the single shop became a chain and expanded quickly throughout Kyushu, followed by the rest of Japan.
