The adventure of finding good ramen in north america can be tough. But Ivan Ramen was prolly my top 3 outside of Japan I had. The broth was simply great and the pork was perfectly cooked. Really, it's all we want in a ramen !

Ivan Ramen is the only place in NYC that comes close to the ramen I've had in Japan. I've been a few times and everything has been great. I would recommend the Lancaster Okonomiyaki for a starter. As for ramen the Triple Pork, Triple Mazen is the best followed closely by Spicy Red Chili Ramen and the Tokyo Shoyu ramen. Fully loaded is the way to go (egg, pork chashu and a roasted tomato). Unfortunately the price does run steeper than most ramen joints though, but it's worth the extra cost.

The atmosphere and service of Ivan Ramen is great. Their fancy drinks (albeit quite expensive) with Yuzu is also delicious but unfortunately the ramen just wasn't good. The noodles were soggy and heavy, the broth was way too salty and just the made the entire bowl of ramen really difficult to get through. I admire the effort to make ramen more inventive (e.g. making the pork into minced pork rather than a big piece of kakuni and mixing the egg into the noodles) but overall I did not feel satisfied eating a bowl of ramen here. Maybe if they called themselves something other than ramen, I would have felt differently.

Good atmosphere/ambiance service. Pork meatballs were good. Ramen was good too. Maybe a bit pricey - for those two things, $30. Felt satisfied but there are plenty of places just as good for same if not less.

All of the appetizers were amazing: the daikon salad, the greens with bonito flakes, the fried something balls: all great. But the spicy ramen I ordered was seaaaarrringly salty. I just couldn't do it. Apparently the chicken ramen would have been the way to go. The decor is manic: the impact is lots of colored LED lights and has a long islandy vibe, but the staff are great and the place has great energy overall.

Worth the hype and they take reservations now! Came for a 5:30 Saturday dinner and the queue was already 1.5hrs for walkins so make sure to anticipate a wait or book a res. My experience with Ivan's ramen was tempered by a mediocre experience at the Slurp Shop in Gotham West Market. The Spicy Red Chili here though was spectacular - flavors clung onto the noodles without being too salty. The rye noodles was also great texture-wise. Egg is a must add-on wise. The ramen here may not be traditional but it's damn good. Other recs include the pickled Bites and Chicken Paitan Ramen.

Ok so first things first, don't ever let anyone tell you that cheese and pickled vegetables taste good together because they do not. I ordered the cheese mazemen because it was a hot day and I didn't want soup. My friend got the triple pork mazemen so I decided to order the only other mazemen option. I'd heard great things about a slice of cheese on top of instant ramen so I thought that this dish would be inventive and fun. Unfortunately I was wrong but luckily my friends were generous enough to share parts of their amazing dishes. The aforementioned triple pork had just the right amount of salt and seasoning and the texture of the noodles were perfect unlike mine which were drenched with an exorbitant amount of melted cheese. The real star was the cold broth ramen with rye noodles and mackerel. The mackerel piece was huge and so fresh and perfectly flaky and the mackerel infused broth was strong but also light and refreshing at the same time. The rye noodles were chewy and nutty, a perfect complement to the cool and salty broth. Simply amazing. We also shared the sriracha fried shrimp and the okonomiyaki to start but neither of them were especially amazing for me.

A very nice spot to get dinner with friends. Decent prices and decent seating arrangements, with benches and chairs, a bar and outdoor seating in the back as well. The food was well prepared and the appetizers were well made as well. Not very many vegetarian/vegan options, but the ones that are there are to die for. I'm anxious to go back and have their Tofu Coney Island again (imagine tofu prepared to be like nachos, but made from stuff that's actually good for you).
