Went with two friends for dinner at around 8pm, and waited 30 minutes for a table; the shop is small (there are two shops which are next door to each other - the one we queued at seats around 18 people). We ordered the miso and curry ones, and they were pretty good - but not mindblowingly good. The whole... More

The line for chicken ramen was massive so we decided not to wait 30min in the cold and instead go for the next door pork ramen. It is the same company, but the kitchens and dining spaces are divided. The broth lacked flavour but the noodles were very good as well as the hard boiled egg. Don't go for the... More

You might have to queue a bit outside before getting in, but the cold, the rain, the heat are totally worth it! Really authentic and some great ramen!

We’ve been in broadway 52nd street shop so close to the Neil Simon theater (Cats musical). The shop has few seat, so, be prepared to wait on line for a while. Once in, you can experience a real Japanese hi quality ramen. We got miso (very good) paitan and spicy paitan, really tasty and delicious, with pork (slices and pulled).... More

Walked to this place from hotel. When we arrived there was only 1 couple in front of us and a 30 minute wait. My husband was eager to walk around during our wait and against my better judgment I followed him. When we arrived back 25 minutes later the line was now around the block, and we got bumped, wait...

So right off the bat, my girlfriend and I were confused upon arrival because we saw a crowd outside and inside and a sign in sheet but no hostess. We signed our name below a few other people and entered the steps down to the restaurant. A lady came in every 5 minutes and took a few orders and occasionally... More

Yeah, it's packed. Yeah, it's quick. Yeah, it's just ramen; oh, but it's not just ramen - it's a bowl packed with a depth of flavour you won't find anywhere else in NYC's ramen scene. Forget the pretenders; this is the real deal. Get down to Hell's Kitchen, get your name on the waiting list, and enjoy.

Nothing really remarkable; food seems a bit uneven. My sweet and sour soup was good, my mixed vegetable dish overly sauced and unattractive -- some of the vegetables were not fresh.

Here, you get good ramen at a fair price. The range of selection is good, but the wait to get seated can be long at times.

I went early to scope out this little hole-in-the-wall place. When I walked by the first time there was no one there - 5 minutes later it was packed (this was 10 minutes before they opened). The staff is very efficient - my order was taken prior to sitting down and when I did get a seat at the counter... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
