One of my favorite places to eat near Union Square. Awesome Ramen, it gets crowded really fast and it's easy that they run out of your preferred choice really fast. As far as I understand, they don't take reservations and people have to wait sitting...More

Very good, authentic “hole in the wall” ramen joint. They have sushi but everyone here was eating ramen. We had the special (pork belly ramen) and the vegetable ramen. Huge portions, and it’s a very small restaurant with limited seating so plan on waiting or...More

We love ramen and have tried it everywhere, including Japan. We both ordered their house ramen with BBQ pork, fried gyoza and fried pieces of chicken. It was as good as any we had in Japan. The broth was very flavorful and the 3 types...More
