We base a lot of our meal choices on trip adviser and this was one of the few times it let us down. The food served was not flavorful and was incredible salty! The majority of the dish was half cooked noodles with a small portion of meat and hardly any vegetables. We were very disappointed and did not even... More

Business: We tried for dinner, but was packed, so we tried it during lunch the next day. Still had to line up, as it seemed to be a very popular place. Food: had the recommended noodles. Main disappointment: the egg is supposed to be runny on the inside, hard on the outside. Was not true for any of our ramen.... More

I have to admit, I came here not expecting much but I was blown away and ended up coming back for round two a few hours before my flight!  The shop is pretty small, yet it's usually packed with people waiting around outside for a table.  Luckily for me, I was by myself so had no problem at all getting...

We arrived for an early dinner after a day trip to Fitzroy Island. No waiting for a table. The service was friendly and the ramen was excellent. I tried the Mugen Premium gold and ordered extra noodles. Oishi ! If only they had a restaurant in Sydney.

My partner and I don't eat pork so we were so excited when we learnt they don't have just pork broth but chicken and seafood broth. The place had a huge line up but it didn't take long for us to get served. The price is great so much we have already gone back!

The staff was quick to get me a seat and made sure I had everything I needed. The food was delicious and hot! The toppings on the soup were the amount you would hope for and the price is very fair. I left full and happy!!

We had to wait a few minutes for a table but that was part of the fun really. Watching this tiny place abuzz with activity while we waited added to the excitement. The staff were so friendly and kind and couldn't do enough. We sat at a bench in front of the kitchen which was great entertainment - the chefs... More
