This ramen institution still has a 1.5 hour wait for a table even more than 5 years after opening at the Astor Place location. This is a chain from Japan, but is thoroughly authentic as far as ambiance, décor and cuisine. The tiny bar and super crowded waiting area is a horrible frustration. Knowing that there is always an excessive... More

we waited 1 hr 15 minutes for a table, which actually exceeded our expectations since we were told the wait would be closer to 1 45. Ordered pork buns at the bar - they were very good. We sat, and ordered more pork buns, some other appetizers, and the classic soup. It was all good. But quite frankly can't figure... More

It's my third time in this place and always it makes me happy. The buns with pork are amazing and the Ramans are very good - especially on a called day.

You'll need a reservation or at least call in to let them know you're coming. This place is high end and a big deal. So def plan before going. You will impress whoever you go with though. Great spot.

Brought my bestie here and it was her first experience eating ramen and she enjoyed it! Very busy and the restaurant was fairly loud but the broth brought music to my ears. Had the salad and also shared the toast dessert.

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.
