Such an incredibly overrated place. I came with my dad and we were seated at that center counter area, which was awful. Maybe if you like sitting and staring at a bunch of strangers as you eat, but mainly it was just awkward. Adding to that, it was impossibly loud. They seemed to be trying to make it feel like a club inside, so the lighting was dark and the music obnoxiously loud, don't even think about trying to have conversation. Even worse, everytime a new guest would arrive the staff would scream Japanese directly into the ears of all the people in the counter. This happens about every 2 min during dinner. Finally, the food was expensive (over 50 for two small Ramens and a mediocre tofu app). Worst dinner I've ever had in NYC.

I am a ramen fan. I go to various cities and always try to find good ramen. This spot was not far from our hotel, it was perfect and hit my ramen crave! Shishito peppers were great too. I am definitely coming back whenever im in NY.

I love the ramen here, and I believe that it may very well have the best ramen I've ever tasted. At the very least, it has the best tasting chicken broth ramen. I love my ramen both to be clean and light and that is certainly what you get with their Torishio ramen. The broth is so light yet it still packs so much chicken flavor that I feel I could eat twice as much as I normally can because I don't feel as heavy after eating it. The lightness of the broth really allows you to appreciate the fine noodles and the fattiness of the chashu pork that comes in the bowl with it. You'll really appreciate that extra space in your stomach once you add an order of their Hirata buns. You can choose between either their pork belly or chicken, but no matter the choice you'll be glad you got them as they're basically an Asian version of sliders. One order only comes with 2 buns though, which is almost a crime. Love the food here and the waitstaff is very friendly. It makes the long wait certainly worth while.

Some of the best ramen in nyc! This branch seems to have a shorter wait than their sister restaurant on the east side, and will text you when your table is ready. Get the pork buns and the akamaru modern.

It's a great place. A bit pricey but it is a Manhattan restaurant. Food is great, music is not overbearing, ambiance is wonderful, staff are helpful and funny...good times, good times. I highly recommend the Akumaru Modern and the pork buns. Yum!

Delicious ramen in an upscale but noisy setting. Try the karaka-men. If you're looking for a more casual place or if you prefer chicken broth, go to Totto nearby.

Come early (we were there at 11.30 on a Sunday) so you don't have to wait. The karake-men is probably the best ramen I've had in NYC to date.
