This is the second time I have been here and I chose to come on Monday instead of the weekend to not wait too much time to get a table. The ramen are simply tasty and delicious, stay on the classic one is you don't stand spicy. The ambient is easy and nice, staff is pretty kind and you will... More

I did not find that this ramen restaurant lived up to its hype. My husband, daughter and I each had a ramen and our noodles were very, very tough. Also, my pork belly was overcooked and very bland. The broths, however, were out of this world! I was not worth the price or the wait. I prefer Mitsuwa (in Edgewater)... More

Consistency and yummy are the two words to summarize Ippudo. I don't live in NYC, but every time I go to the city I go there, since 2008. Ramen keeps the good texture, misso broth is still very tasty, buns are delicious as appetizers. I always faced lines no matter the hour of the day, but they are bearable. One... More

Amazing ramen in a fun, electric atmosphere, pretty inexpensive, but you'll probably have to wait (no reservations). Try the buns as well - perfect with a kick.

This place is totally awesome! I was here on a Monday evening and decided to reach a little late by 9 pm. But guess what there was still waiting and it took about 10 mins for them to let me in. No problem though because i hear the lines can be long and it can take close to 30-40 mins... More

A cool and busy restaurant where you can enjoy delicious ramen and other Japanese dishes. I will especially recommend their signature dish. The service is really good and there is a busy but nice and funny atmosphere in the small restaurant. Take in mind that you might have to wait 30-60 minutes to get a seat on evenings (and it...

I waited for about 20-25 minutes on a weekday night around 6PM for one. Definitely good for what it is. I'm personally not a fan of the thin ramen noodles, but they are made well here. The noodles are a bit on the crunchy side, and they're really thin. Broth is really good; I got the spicy broth and although... More

The food is absolutely fantastic here - especially the vegetarian buns and Ebi mayo! We didn't tried the ramen soups as there are all with pork, but everything we tried beside this signature dish was delicious! The place itself is really crowded and if you come after 5 pm you have to wait about half an hour. But there is... More

A simply amazing ramen experience - several savory broths. Fills early at dinner so be prepared for a wait - but worth it!

The food is awesome. Hands down the best ramen I've had, and the best steamed buns I've had as well. I usually have gone here with big groups so we tend to order a lot of plates and everything has been good. The wings and shishito peppers are always good. But the Steamed Hirata Buns with pork are awesome. I... More

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.
