Delicious ramen with speedy and efficient service makes the experience perfect. Its a small place so you might have to wait for a seat but it's well worth it.

I take an hour train ride from CT just to visit my favorite ramen place. I even made it on crutches just because i had a craving. There is always a line, so put your name in on the door early. They are very popular. The food is extremely tasty, and the staff is friendly. Its a little hole in the wall I discovered while searching Google for a good ramen place. I have been hooked ever sense. If you haven't tried it, do it today! You will not be disappointed.

POOR SERVICE AND RUDE SERVERS!!! I have tried almost all of the noodle/Ramen joints in the city and I have finally give Totto Ramen a try. Their ramens and the pork buns that people are raving about are above average quality. Nothing special. I would've given Toto Ramen at least a 3.5 star rating but I'm giving them 1 star or less for providing POOR SERVICE!!! We dont mind waiting outside before we get seated. What really pissed me off was that one of their servers was so rude for placing our bill on the table while we were eating. At first I said to my group whatever. We just ignored it. Then when I pulled my debit card, the male server told me they only do cash. I said ok....but deep inside I felt this is very inconvenient. At least they should've post a big sign somewhere that they only take cash. But the real let down was the guy had the nerves to educate me about mandatory tipping. I am a good tipper. The reason why I wanted to give them two dollar tips was that they have NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL!!! First, we felt like we were being rushed out of the place by placing our bill on the table and while we were still eating. Second, they have no sign that indicates they only take cash. And last, they didnt even have the courtesy to come to us and ask how we were doing or how's the food. Most of our glasses were empty and they didn't even take the time to check and give us more water. And that rude server had the balls to tell me that "oh you have to tip. You know it's mandatory right?" In my head I'm saying, you have the nerve to tell me this as if you have a world class service? Avoid Toto Ramen. Save yourself the time and go to Ippudo. Ippudo is so much better. Not only their broth is better, their customer service is world class.

Despite its top rank among NYC ramen restaurants, I don't think it deserves it. The soup is too salty and the pork buns are just so-so. Most disappointingly, they asked us to pay more tip when we prepared to leave though we had already tipped at least 15%. Maybe it's because of the dinner time, but didn't they know that gratuity is given by courtesy instead of mandatorily? In brief, no need waiting in line for this small, cash-only locus. There are a lot of great ramen restaurants in NYC after all.

Would wait if I had the time. Love the experience eating here. The first time I ever came for a bowl of ramen, the ramen chef was singing to the Carpenters, yet completely focused on creating some great dishes. I love being able to watch the kitchen staff do their thing as they serve wonderful dishes from their small kitchen. The space itself is, as obvious in photos and other reviews, very tiny. Wish this restaurant can get a slightly larger space to accommodate the great demand for its food.

For my first trip to NYC ever, I knew I had to try a ramen place. We were of course recommended to check Ippudo and other more popular places. Having major hunger pains and lack of patience we opted for the not as popular, Totto Ramen. On a cold night, Totto was the perfect treat. The wait was not that bad as we had a couple of drinks while we waited. We tried the pork buns, which were great. These, however, were not the start of the show. The menu is small and straight to the point. I ordered the spicy ramen, which was the best meal I had in NYC the entire trip. It is still the best ramen dish that I've ever had. I am not the biggest ramen expert or anywhere close but I loved this meal. I can't imagine ramen getting any better. The broth was flavorful and spiced to just the right amount and the noodles were perfectly cooked. Great place to try in NYC if you enjoy ramen,

Good al dente ramen paired with a really moreish chicken broth, also loved the hardboiled egg I added to my order. Service got really spotty when the boys take over while the "door bitch" went out for a short lunch break. Other than that, for an affordable, quick lunch, I'd come back anytime I happen to be in Hell's Kitchen.
