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

Small eatery - NYC - ramen was exceptional and the staff was quick and helpful with some menu items. Would recommend if you are near midtown.

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

My family and I stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday. We arrived minutes before the lunch rush. We were seated and then the restaurant filled up with a line out the door. We had sushi, sashimi, steamed buns with pork belly and tonkotsu ramen...and beef ramen. All were fantastic. The ramen portions are huge so go hungry! Service was quick and efficient but was not the most friendly. I would go back again.More
