Un-hip ramen shop in a hip area. But when you step inside you’re transported to a lost back alley in busting Setagaya Tokyo where the art form known as Ramen is practiced diligently, as if one’s family name and honor were at stake. Heaps of...More

Very good place for a vegetarian ramen. The broth was amazing, very hearty e creamy (close to tantan vegetarian ramen - with some kind of vegetable milk). Going back for sure.

I'm a Ramen snob. Fresh onions in Ramen must be a NYC thing, I've never seen it anywhere in Asia or Canada. Egg was really good, soup was good, noodles not bad. Pork was not great, could have been softer. I would not return here.

There are better places for ramen, but this noodle shop is the middle ground for reasonable queues and quality. I never had to wait outside in the cold street to get a table indoors. As for the quality, they do skimp out on the toppings....More

Friendly service but relative slow, I don't know what can happen when the restaurant is crowded. We shared gyozas that were ok and I enjoyed my Rahmen. Probably all their dishes are adapted to the Western taste but hey, it is a cheap place, I...More

We went here on a Saturday night and the place was packed. Luckily, there was only a short line and we waited less than 20 minutes. This place is nothing fancy, which was ok with us, because it's the food that matters. We ordered two...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
