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.

The pork bun appetizer is really delicious. A hint of mayo and a piece of lettuce. The dessert, Hirado Milk is very good. A lot of textures and not very sweet. Ramen is okay. Not sure what all the fuss about Ramen. It is the same is Vietnamese Pho and nice to have on a cold winter's day. Being Asian it is the norm for me.

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.

Akamaru ramen never fails. It's tonkotsu broth (pork bone) with an extra kick. All broth are good though. As always, add a soft boiled egg. The only setback is the hour long wait. At least there is a bar and an indoor lounge.

I LOVE ramen and this place is an NYC institution! Went there this past Friday night with a group of people and one friend visiting the city and had the greatest time! Our waiter was fantastic and gave great recommendations on everything from food to cocktails! I had the Karaka-Men ramen, which was DELICIOUS! Our table ordered 2 plates of pork buns (also to DIE for!). Overall, the ambiance and meal were a 10 our of 10! The wait can be daunting but is truly worth it! When it comes to ramen, this is definitely a must!

Long lines, but worth the wait. Make sure to order more noodles if you have soup leftover! All broths are good.
