One of the best things about coming here is that you know you will get a consistent, filling and tasty meal. All of their ramen have their own distinct flavours and the gyozas are little parcels of deliciousness. The soft boiled eggs are perfect and the choice of noodles (soft/med/hard) means that you can get everything to suit your tastes.... More

This place is one of our favourite lunch spots in Cairns. The noodles and gyoza are great. The best flavour is Ja-do. Service is always welcoming and definitely traditional Japanese. Free Japanese Iced tea for all. Lunch/dinner for 2 @ under $30. Cash only.

Very friendly noodle bar which clearly has a loyal following of locals and visitors alike. Speedy service doesn't encourage lingering but the food is great (best gyoza I've had in a long time!) and excellent value. Opens at 5pm, 7 days a week so is ideal for an early evening feed.

What a great find in Cairns, so happy we chose this place. Excellent service, food was extremely reasonably priced and it came out in no time at all. The kids could not get enough of the raman or gyozas. We left with full bellies and a big smile on our face. This will definitely be on the cards to visit... More

We spent 4 days in Cairns and thought the food scene was quite poor - expensive for overall quality. We stumbled upon this place for dinner one evening as it was much more affordable than other restaurants in the area. $10-13 AUD for a bowl of ramen + $6 for 8 gyozas. Specializes in ramen + gyoza. Good quality noodles... More

Loved this place! Came here two nights out of four as we couldn't get enough of the ramen and gyoza! I've been to hundreds of ramen places and this place is definitely up there as one of the best, and amazing value for money! You won't be disappointed. Much more character than many of the restaurants in Cairns, and way... More

Very busy and popular Noodle bar in town, good service and fast presentation. Not much to be said about this place, would be more reasonable if the price is lowered for a dollar or two, but good in all.
