My favorite ramen place in the city, Ippudo can be a bit pricey but it's definitely worth it. The pork buns are pretty good, but I can't go there without ordering the veggie buns! Be prepared to wait, though they will take your number and text when your table is ready, and you can grab a drink and an appetizer from the bar while you wait.

Ippudo Westside is phenomenal. Shishito peppers are salty and addictive. Ramen is delicious. Rich and flavorful yet not heavy. Noodles are cooked to perfection and the eggs are a must add-on. Service is accommodating. The space is warm and welcoming. Absolutely worth every bit of praise they receive.

I like this Ippudo a lot more than the downtown one because there's much shorter lines, the staff is friendlier and everything feels more relaxed. The ramen tastes great and is the same so don't worry about coming here vs. the other as there is consistency. Remember to get the extra noodles at the end.

It's hard rating below par ramen when you've been to a city that has ramen and Izakaya bars that are stella: Vancouver. This place might be a 4 or 5 for locals but score 3/5 for me. Broth was so so. The tonkotsu was no very thick. Noodles were chewy, but did not seem fresh. Way over priced compared to what is available. Decor was amazing! Service was so-so despite lots of staff being "around".

Get here early because the wait can be long. The four of has had four different ramens and enjoyed each of them. The chicken karaage was also excellent. Good place for a smaller groups and an authentic taste of Japan.

If you're craving the tasteful ramen of Ippudo NYC, but are on the north side, this is the place to go. Their lines are shorter than Ippudo NYC by far and the environment is very accommodating. The bar is brightly lit and friendly whereas the inside area is darker and feels a bit more intimate. There is also a nice bar waiting area with interesting and tasteful drinks. Be careful not to fill yourself up here before getting to the ramen! The food is great here as you would expect from Ippudo. I myself personally recommend the Akamaru Modern since it is one of the more flavorful while not being overwhelming. The kae-dama is also great, but save your soup! You don't get any more.

Really good ramen. The wait was forever but the amazing ramen made up for it. I'd recommend getting the classic tonkotsu with a soft boiled egg, extra noodles, and some bamboo shoots.
