I loved the chicken ramen tonkotsu bowl. Generous serving and so good. It's my new favorite ramen place.

Excellent chicken ramen bowls with decent broth. Chicken karage udon was the standout dish. The sushi is of a decent level also. Friendly host and overall very affordable.

Wonderful friendly courteous service! Their Sashimi is the best we have had in the Cairns area. Tempura prawns are excellent too as well as the "Bowl" dishes.
