It was good ramen with the interesting setup imported from Japan, but considering the price, there are definitely better options out there. The service was good and fast.

It's pricey. Service is quick. Lots of options for noodle and broth. It's worth trying a least once if you haven't been there.

It's a unique establishment where the purpose is to simply be served and be eating. You get your own individual booth, and you are discouraged to not speak on the phone and to keep quiet. You have limited interactions with the waiters, where you fill...More

This place has excellent ramen. There are separate windows you sit in. Service is quick. You fill out a slip circling your choices, push the call button and soon your ramen arrives. The broth was amazing.

Ichiran blew our minds when we were in Tokyo so we had to try the one in NY. The concept is exactly the same in Tokyo where you eat in booths. There is no tipping so the price will be around the same if you...More

Order via a form, get served through a tiny window that shuts once your food is served, and sit in a booth that isolates you from the people next to you so that you can focus 100% of your attention on the delicious Ramen!

Description
Our natural pork-bone soup is skimmed to perfection so that the ultimate flavor of pork is drawn out. ICHIRAN's special raw noodles are made from a unique blend of quality flours, with the foremost consideration being synergy with our soup. Additionally, our original aged "Spicy Red Sauce" is a chili-powder based blend of 30 different ingredients that is added to our ramen to bring out a more rich taste.
