Taro’s Ramen South Brisbane

Opening Soon


good for groups

Due to open in November 2017.

In just a few short years Taro Akimoto – the celebrated Brisbane ramen chef – has opened an Ascot restaurant, relocated his CBD original to swank new digs at 480 Queen and also adopted a “temporary” second location in the city on Edward Street. All the while, his bowls of noodle soup – built upon a broth made from Bangalow pork – have come to be regarded as some of the best in Australia.

Now, Akimoto is crossing the river. In mid-November, Taro’s Ramen will open a new restaurant on the ground floor of 154 Melbourne in South Brisbane, in the former premises of Socarrat Paella Bar.

Akimoto says the 80-seat venue will retain much of the existing fit-out – concrete floors and plenty of wood define its long, narrow space – but he’ll replace the couches opposite the bar with a series of booths.

There will also be the same iPad ordering and good mix of Japanese sake, shochu and side dishes to complement the ramen.
