Simple and amazing.

What can I say that hasn't already been said? The kimchi was perfect. The three types of buns we shared were each as amazing as the last. My spicy miso ramen was everything it needed to be.

Went with two friends and we were lucky to be seated immediately at the counter. We shared several of the nights' special buns and a bowl of Kim Chee to start. All were tasty and satisfying. Two of us had the Momofuko special ramen, one of us ordered the cold spicy noodle bowl. All were delicious and the spicy bowl... More

After 1 hour and 40 minutes of waiting, we finally get to eat the famous noodles. The service was good and quick. The noodles were everything we were hoping for. Can't wait to go back to NY and have these noodles again.

You may find a line but it is worth the wait. Friendly staff allow you to take your time and enjoy even with folks waiting. The food is great as is the atmosphere.

We were there before the doors opened in order to get a table. There were 11 of us and since they did not have a table big enough they sat us at the end of the bar which wrapped around so we could visit. One in the party is gluten free and since it was a noodle bar (no gluten... More

Waited for more than an hour for seats but service was friendly and efficient. Food was definitely overated, ramen was just okay but the buns were better. Not worth the long wait if you are there hoping for good ramen.

If you love ramen then you need to stop here. The ramen does not get any better at this place and the steamed buns are no joke. The shrimp buns are amazing and dessert from milk bar is a perfect finish. Get there early on the weekends or you'll be waiting a while.

This place has become legendary - David Chang, the owner, is a celebrity in his own right and the pork buns have been talked about across coasts. Coming from Los Angeles and having visited Japan numerous times, I've indulged in my love for ramen...and while the light kombu broth, poached egg, and braised pork are delicious, the whole thing feels...

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.
