Very good and cheap food. A bit out of the way. Good spot for students. The service was good and the food cooked fresh. Very enjoyable

Never mind about ramen, I like their ramen, however my favourite is Spicy Cold Tofu and a bowl of rice with spring onion and egg. For the taste and give energy this is quite amazing dish, not to mention only cost approx. $4. The spicy cold tofu $6. The freshness of the dishes can not bit that, also delicious. Apart... More

The ramen here is to die for. Don't expect much as far as service goes though but the quality of food is excellent.

Taros Ramen tonkotsu Nice creamy pork soup for Australian made ramen it's not bad. Eaten here 4 times now My only negatives are never get much soup and soup is never really hot! Always warm! Also getting your kaidama ( extra noodles) at the same time as getting the soup is just lazy! And not good! Considering this is not... More

Since this place moved from 363 Adelaide Street into 480 Queen Street (and opened a couple more outlets) the quality has simply nosedived! This used to be THE go-to place for ramen in the Brisbane CBD with generous serves of very high quality ramen. We went last week for dinner and were extremely disappointed with the dismal serves, poor quality... More

We just left Tarps on racecourse road. It was packed so we thought it would be good. The dumplings were ok but the pork cheek with rice was tasteless and so was the noodles and vegetables. It was just noodles with the occasional piece of boring non descript vegetable. We left without eating much at all. I love Brisbane but... More

A must visit at least once per week. Slow cooked pork strew is really tasty. Highly recommended for group of friends to visit.

I am searching for a good ramen place in Brisbane but have yet to discover it. Taro's is definitely off the list! A friend recommended Taro's so I went along but it was disappointing. The ramen noodles were definitely not fresh or made in-house, as claimed. The soup was okay but lacking flavour, I didn't bother finishing the bowl like... More

This is as good as Ramen can get in my opinion. You could spend time in Japan and not match it. There are a number of options but I tend to always go the spicy option. Absolutely sensational food every time!
