Momofuku is a must for the gourmand tourist - its inventive concept of "hip ramen" has made it one of the most popular places to dine in the city. The noodles are just right - firm and silky, be adventurous and try one of the more exotic broth flavors. Expect a line.

Service was excellent and the food is reasonably priced for the City. The Ramen noodles where very good along with a nice selection of wines, it's a simple decorated restaurant but very nice

On a 1-10 scale, the Ramen is a 10...but the Pork Buns are a 100! We were a group of 3, yet found by waiting that Groups of 2 and 4 were seated before us. (HINT: If you are a group of 3 ask someone to go along with you) You MUST get an order of the Pork Buns...MUST. You... More

There's always a line but food is really food. Great vibe. Staff is really friendly which is hard to find when you have more than 100 people waiting to be seated.
