Sushi were not good at all. Also the size of one piece was soooo big. You will need a knife to cut it to put in to your mouth. One sushi piece I should fit in to your mouth without using a knife.

Great food. The quality was outstanding. Very popular, but they made space for us, on a busy night. Service is efficient, and quick.

We love to come back here everytime we’re craving ramen :) They made sure to accommodate us for a table and Jimmy was a very considerate server! Definitely recommend the Karagge chicken.

The restaurant was packed. However, we got very fast a table for two. We ordered two spicy ramen. It came fast and was very delicious. The portion is big and the spice was not too hot (For a beginer).

Stopped by to for Japanese food. You need to show your vaccines card and ID before you can eat indoor. Popular place, but mainly for tourists. The food is fusion at best. The staffs are really nice and friendly. We got the spicy mama roll....I am not sure this roll is popular. I didn't find or taste any spicy tuna, spicy salmon or spicy yellowtail. Maybe it was the sauce? It just a rice with asparagus. The cucumber has good flavor. The octopus ball was good. Has crunch to it. The spicy tonkotsu shoyu was ok. The broth lack flavor and it was over powering by the spices. If you want fusion food. Then it's the place. It's isn't authentic for meMore

Zen Ramen is the entire reason I stay at a hotel nearby when I visit NYC. Amazing. And yes, sometimes you have to wait a hot minute for a seat but entirely worth it. I typically get takeout and it’s packaged beautifully.

I had dinner here in my first night in Manhattan. The place was near to hotel so it was super convenient. I ordered ramen and It was so delicious. I could tell the quality and the freshness of the ingredients. If you are looking for...comfort in the form of a ramen bowl, this is the place.More

This is a little place but they have each booth sectioned off with plastic so you have your own experience and feel pretty safe with Covid. The food is amazing! We had sushi and Ramen bowls. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive. They get...you whatever you need and are very good at explaining the menu. I didn’t realize it was still happy hour where is their prices were lower and they pointed me to the lower price. I would come back here again!More

The order was wrong,the food was horrible and we never got proper seating. They just put two tables together. It was just one waiter working. He did the best he can but everything else was trash.

Most salty ramen I’ve ever tasted. So much so, I couldn’t eat it. It was like getting a mouthful of water in the ocean.

I had dinner plans with a friend on a Thursday night and needed a restaurant that was close to Penn Station. Sushi and ramen are usually crowd-pleasers, and I had this place on my bookmark so I thought, why not? We came in at around...6 (no reservations), and the place was already pretty packed. Plus, the layout of the tables has a weird set up, so it's probably not the most efficient use of space. Still, we were seated immediately. To start, we had some chicken karaage from their happy hour menu. It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst either. It was a bit over-fried. For the main, we decided to order a bunch of rolls to share: the Napoleon Roll (Inside Spicy tuna, soft shell crab, mango & avocado, topped with lobster salad and jalapeno), the Lady Gaga (Shrimp Tempura, Eel, Avocado, Top W. Spicy Tuna, Spicy Tuna, Tobiko, Crunchy, Soy Bean Paper & Mango Sauce), tuna avocado roll, and a salmon roll. The two special rolls tasted pretty similar. In fact, I couldn't really tell the difference between the two. There was just too much going on. I preferred the basic rolls over these. Not enough for me to come back though. Maybe their ramen is better? Either way, I don't think I'll be back - my stomach felt a bit funny afterwards so I'm not sure if it was the sushi or something I ate earlier. Tip - happy hour til 7. But don't get any of the cocktails. It's pure sugar. I couldn't even finish the Tokyo Tea I ordered.More
