Went here on a friends recommendation on a Thursday night, and was glad I did. Been to Totto and Ippudo, and never been too impressed by the ramen there. Chicken stock at Totto just never sat right with me (although the noodles were excellent). I...More

In short: excellent lunch/dinner counter joint, authentic and tasty, fast and welcoming. Food is great just remember this is not a seat down, big group hang out. Seats need to be turned around fast. In detail: for me the Ramen is the inferior of the...More

I discovered this small authentic Japanese ramen restaurant at 18 Lexington ave. Just about one block away from the 6 train stop at 23rd st. I had the Shoyu Ramen and it was pretty good. The price is reasonable. Be ware though, this restaurant only...More
