Over the course of a 5-day stay in Cairns we managed to eat here 3 times! Everything we tried was delicious: the broth rich and flavorful, noodles silky and cooked the way you like them (they ask), the roast meat aromatic and tender. Portion sizes are generous, but if you're still hungry and have a bit of soup left, just... More

Where do I begin? Chorus of welcome greeted me as I stepped into the restaurant. Free ice cool tea sitting waiting on the table. I ordered the Gen-Ten Premium Red hard to medium noodles with extra bean sprouts and gyoza. Noodles arrived really quickly. Mushrooms, half of egg, slices of pork, fried crispy onion and the hot chilli. There are... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Cairns. I have tried most of the noodle and rice dishes and love everything. The food, service and price is awesome. You will not be disappointed.

We were attracted by the trip advisor winner stickers on its shop, and decided to go there the other morning. The soup is just salty and it tastes like the instant packs bought in supermarket. The noodle is not what we expected to be with such grading in trip advisor.

We love this little restaurant! Is the typical asian friendly, smiling and fast service, with a very good and tasteful food! We tried Mugen Premium Gold noodles ($12,95) and Gyoza Dumplings w/ rice (5 pcs $ 3,95) and both were so good! All the ingredients are really well balanced. Prices are more than ok for Australia and if you finish... More

My second time i went here in a few days, because the food is soooo good! I took the Mugen Premium Gold and it's just amazing! It's so tasteful! Some of the best things i ate here in australia. I also took gyoza with rice. These are homemade dumplings. Were also really good. (and extra noodles cost just 1.50$ ;-)... More

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
