This second branch of Ippudo in manhattan is a blessing. The Hirata Buns are the best. I would fly to NY just to get a bite here.

No, seriously, it is the best ramen I've ever had. The only downside to his place was that it was very crowded (we hadn't made a reservation) so had to wait approx. 40 mins to get a table. But they have a bar where you...More

Amazing and authentic ramen with the right atmosphere. The place was packed on a Sunday morning. Completely worth the experience with engaged staff, although I suspect our waitress was a bit grumpy;)

Went on a Friday afternoon, waited less than twenty minutes and then scored a booth for the four of us. I had the chicken based ramen, my family had the pork based ramen with the hot chili sauce. It was delicious and wonderful. We also...More

It will cost around 40$ if no appetizer. 15$ per ramen. But expect a long wait, to be honest try something else the food is not that great here over rated hype.
