Awesome food

I love this place.The food is fantastic and really filling. I recommend the raw baby octopus to start followed by the classic Ramen and washed down with a Plum Sake. This is real comfort food at a great price.

I've been to this Ippudo probably 4x and every time, I had to wait for about 1-2 hours! I live here and I should know better but it's always for visiting friends and family. Come closer when they open and groups of 2 will always be faster...anything after 6 and more than 3...expect a long wait! If you must, leave... More

I was craving ramen for lunch and in a new restaurant. I ordered shiromaru hakata classic with extra chashu. I went to ramen heaven! It was a perfect mix: broth was very subtle; not too salty nor too overpowering. Thin ramen noodles were light, chewy, but not starchy-heavy. Melts-in-your-mouth chashu. I managed to finish my ramen noodles quick that I... More

So because my sister and friend are evil they decided we would go for lunch at a ramen place in the middle of an elimination diet I was trying to help with monster allergies I've had this year. To my delight the staff was helpful and accommodating about this dietary restriction. I was still expecting bland sticky noodles but was... More

Showed up late on a Friday nite after taking in a movie and got right in. There was a wait for larger parties, but they slipped me right into one of the community tables. Everything was as expected: quick service, solid food, rowdy ambiance. An old favorite that has yet to disappoint.

Ippudo is just around the corner from the place I used to work. I went there after reading very good recensions. It was a friday night so I had to wait almost 30 minutes before being seated. The tables are shared as the oriental tradition wants. The service is very fast and they sometimes shout something that I believe being... More

Most Americans don't think much beyond sushi when thinking "Japanese food," but ramen is thankfully getting the attention it deserves. Ippudo is some of the best ramen in NY and offers a variety of different ramen styles (sort of a Japanese version of different types of pasta sauces). The broth is rich and meaty, the meats are succulent, and the... More

It was my first time eating at Ippudo NY (I've previously eaten at their Shanghai restaurant) and I have to say that I'm very impressed. The appetizers were very delicious and the ramen is also very tasty. The waiters were very attentive, helping us change plates periodically, and the food came relatively quick. The wait to get seated was a... More

This is a place I visit every time I'm in NYC. I love noodles and they serve some of the best. BUT not to be left out, You must get the flash fried shishito peppers! They are very addictive and tasty. Sometimes the wait to get in can be a little long, but the atmosphere and food are completely worth... More

Communal tables add to the atmosphere here. We had to wait for a while, so we had a few drinks at the bar. The staff are upbeat and helpful when it comes to explaining the different options. I had the spicy ramen which was stunning, my friend had the vegetarian option, which also looked delicious.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
