This place is the best soup/ ramen pl ace in town. Love the service, food and price spray for themselves. Be sure to get in early every night is a line up.

Whenever we are in town, we love to visit Ganbaranba for their delicious ramen. The broth is authentic and so tasty. I love that I can get my noodles cooked soft. They have lots of great sides as well in case a big bowl of...ramen isn't enough! The staff are so welcoming and friendly. It has the atmosphere of a real Japanese ramen shop. Do yourself a favour and stop by. Hopefully they'll be back doing dine in next week as well.More

The gyoza are made fresh to order so allow a few minutes for this. The broth they use for the ramen is amazing. First ramen restaurant we have been to where they ask you how you would like your noodles cooked - firm,medium or soft....We chose medium.More

Had this on our list to visit whilst in Cairns and glad we found it. Queues outside is always a good sign! My husband had no. 5 and I had no.6 which were both delicious and filling. Great service without being overly fussy and reasonably...priced at $15 per ramen. Would recommend a visit.More

Great noodle soup at an excellent price in a no frills setting. Worth the (short in our case) wait to be served. One of our best meals in Australia.

Go for #5. Forgot the name. I’ve never veen to Japan, but I can’t imagine ramen being better there than they were here. Super quick service as well. All around great experience.

Not much to elaborate, the ramen was perfect, lovely spices, enough garlic and chilli, just perfect. The other sides are ok, but insignificant, the ramen shines. Good service too. Will come back.

Just remember it’s cash only. Once again a great meal. Tasty and full of veggies #14 and #4 full of flavour. Great service too. Highly recommend this place,
