My friends and I are from Brisbane, waited for around 30 minutes for seats and 2 of us had to be separated and seated on the 'bar' table, but that's fine for us. Waiters were EXTREMELY tentative, we were asked if we were ready to order for a few times and whether we wanted extra noodles as well. One of... More

We took our two children here while holidaying in Cairns as we all love Asian food. The noodles were tasty, the service friendly, and good value ... authentic and busy.

Disappointing customer service from the crew! We ordered few ramens and a plate of gyoza. We patiently waited for so long as the sign says the gyozas will take some time. When we asked for it the crews insisted that they have served. They even suspected that we have eaten the gyoza and have hidden the plate instead! The lady... More

Good selection of japanese food mainly associated with broth. Very quick service and tasty and filling food, and relatively cheap. Would recommend and go again.

There were 6 of us girls coming to dinner prior to a night out, the place was PACKED which is always a good sign. The food was absolutely deliscious and not pricey at all. The only downside was in fact the seating. Not designed to be comfy so it's sort of, get in, eat your food and go. Staff were... More

This restaurant is very popular so we visited them early. The Raman taste very well and you can order extra noodle if you want more. Don't have much other appetizer to select as they mainly sell Raman. Highly recommend to try this restaurant.

We rocked up to this restaurant and saw a big queue outside. Always a good sign but we weren't sure whether to wait. Really glad we did. Such friendly staff and amazing, great value noodles and soups. A real taste of Japan. Fresh, healthy, fast, friendly. Loved it.

Great affordable food and fantastic service! The option of extra help yourself condiments is a nice extra touch. It is our place of choice for friendship dinner dates! :)

Everything people said about this place was right. We enjoyed this place for both lunch and dinner. We were in Japan last year and it reminded us of the noodle places there.
