The Momofuku Ramen made my brain explode. So much amazing flavor it's difficult to describe. If you find yourself in the Manhattan area, go to to Momofuku. You will be so glad you did.

Momofuku Noodle Bar is all the hype compressed into a moderately-sized dining space, and a little bit more. However, getting there when the doors open may not be enough. We arrived six minutes after the evening service started up and were lucky to get a table. Ten minutes later - the line was out the door and around the corner.... More

This place is fantastic!!! It is also very busy and crowed because of this, but don't let that get you down. You definitely want to wait for your turn! Seriously, it is that good. I dream of these noodles and hope to go back so I can stuff my face once again with tasty noodles and buns. Everything you can... More

Went here for the buns and the ramen, like most people. David Chang is basically a God to me.. The buns are just so awesome. The pork belly is cooked perfectly and melts in your mouth.

Great food, the service was excellent. The Momofuku ramen and the bun is highly recommended. Not for people who do not prefer to see the food prepared in front of you.

It's really nice, a little on the small and crowded side but what can you expect in Manhattan? They don't take reservations but the wait line wasn't very long. The food was great and yummy!

The restaurant is quite popular with the locals. Appetizers are very good. Ramen good but doesn't match to what one might find in Tokyo. Unfortunately if ones group is 4 or larger, wait times can be very long. Service is ok, nothing special. Wine selection is terrible. While at some point it was inventive for the city and this has...

Wow, what a delicious lunch! We had shrimp, Shiitake, & brisket buns. All were delish, with Shiitake being my favorite. Ramen bowls were good too, but I would have opted to share with my daughter. It's a lot of food! Great friendly service! We went for a late lunch and had no wait for a party of 4, score!

Came here to try the ramen. I have had some good ramen but this place is great! The broth has so much flavor and it is very filling. I had the Momofuku ramen with a Tiger beer. That was more than enough. The staff is also very nice.

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.
