As cairns locals we come often, the food is always amazing and fresh, & the service fast and friendly. Soups are $10-$13 and are massive & the gyoza are awesome. You just can't go wrong :-)

Small and casual dining setting set in the Asian eatery part of Cairns. Pleasantly surprised that Cairns would have such a great ramen place.

Small cosy Jap style Ramen place. We still have waited for about half an hour which was after peak dinner hours. The soup and everything else except the noodle were really authentic and yummy. Somehow we found the texture of the noodle were not quite right. After all, definitely the best place for Ramen in Cairns.

Came here after the good reviews, prices in Cairns are quite steep so it was great to find this place with excellent Ramen and Gyoza dumplings at very reasonable prices. Iced tea was provided free as well. Serves were a good size and the broth was excellent.

Very good food but not many veg options. They were very courteous and waited for my toddler to finish food even though they had a crowd waiting
