This is the most delicious ramen I've never had before. Very traditional janpanese noodle. Absolutely will visit again!

“Yummo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I never even knew this existed until my Japanese friends mentioned it, so well hidden away on Spence Street. I could almost thing I was in japan with the cute lower tables and friendly staff. The prices are incredible and there are options for the unadventurous still there, it cost us less than $10 each and we all walked out FULL.

“Nice Gyoza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This place was average. I do frequent Japanese food alot. I wasn't a fan of the cold noodles. It had a funny flavour I couldn't acquire. The Gyoza (dumplings) were pretty good. Maybe I'll try the normal ramen next time. Menus need to be replaced. Staff are friendly.

“Best Ramen bar in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Garbaranba is my favourite noodle bar in Oz. Great Ramen & excellent home-made Gyoza, speedy service & friendly staff includng traditional Ramen bar welcome, just like Japan. I am very glad to have discovered Garbaranba 12 months ago & have eaten there many times since. Congratulations on 6 years in business & recent tripadvisor.com award. Well done!!
