“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

The surprise borne out of its location in a strip mall and driven home by the quality of virtually all the menu choices we five selected, most notably the uni sashimi which was outstanding. Only blip was the tofu agedashi which could have been a mite more tender. I'm sure their desserts would have been good too but instead we nipped to the coffee shop next door which has an excellent brew and delicious sylvanas in plain and coffee flavour.

“Totally Fresh!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

They say Cebu has a lot of great Japanese restaurants and I had to find out for myself. Banri was recommended by a friend from Cebu. It is a small unassuming place but not only were the dishes pleasing to the eye, it pleased the palate as well! The tuna sashimi was so fresh it tasted like meat! The ramen was perfect for that rainy night we were there. Best to make reservation since the place is small and it gets pretty packed.

“my FAVORITE Ramen house in Cebu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2009

when in Cebu, don't forget to drop by Banri for a meal that will excite and tingle your palate with that oh so delicious Ramen! order their Shoyu Ramen or if you prefer Cha Syu Ramen. The difference is that Shoyu Ramen contains less meat than Cha Syu Ramen but of course the broth (the same for both) is really what makes them very hard to resist especially if taken during cold rainy weather and you really need comfort food. see you there!

p.s. other than their other ramen flavors, the restaurant also serves excellent Gyoza! and other delicious japanese meal. definitely a MUST TRY! when in Cebu.
