We went on Sunday night and though we had a ridiculously long wait, the food was worth it. We were a 8 top, and the restaurant is not really suited for larger parties as it is mostly communal seating.

Would definitely recommend this noodle restaurant and will go again when next in NY. Great food and service, one of those restaurants to put on any shortlist to visit.

Very simple menu, but ridiculously tasty food. Small venu. Great for a quick lunch. Buns were delicious, especially the spicy shrimp. Also loved the chicken pho and the spiced chicken wings. Yum.

Dined here with a group of friends, and they made this a better experience than if I went with my spouse or a smaller group. Mostly because this allowed me to taste more of the menu. We were seated with another few people to fill up our table. Not everyone likes this, but I enjoy it as a way to... More

The noodles were great! We took the vegetarian ramen pork bun and shiitake bun. The service was great. The wait to be seated was long but worth it.

Excellent food, It was an amazing experience! Greatest noodles I've ever had in my life. The place is always crowded so don't go if you don't have the time to wait

The food here is great. I haven't had the ramen, but the fried chicken is fantastic. It's shatteringly crispy on the outside and incredibly juicy on the inside. The entire Momomfuku enterprise does a great job with family style meals, so if you have a large group, try to get a set meal reservation. For $150 as of September 2016,... More

Blown away by the classic Momofuku ramen. It was perfect -- great noodles, pork, small rice patty (?) and crunchy seaweed garnish. Can't wait to go back!

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.
