“Cosy ramen house”
Reviewed 27 December 2012 via mobile

Couldn't find the one on 1st Ave, so we end up with this one on St Marks. It's small snd crowded but perfect for a cold day outside. Though short on the menu, it offers standard but good ramen with efficient service and good prices. Go here if you don't want to pay exorbitant prices and wait forever in line at the more popular Ippudo close by.

“Very good ramen”
Reviewed 25 November 2012 via mobile

We came here and there was a long queue- must be good. We ordered the cha siu ramen - broth salty, it was very good especially on a cold day. Also had the gyorza - very good too. Would come back again.

“average ramen”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

the ramen is pretty good and reasonably priced, but i did not think it was as good as advertised. i tried both the spicy miso and tsukemen, and while the spicy miso was pretty good, the tsukemen is nothing like japanese tsukemen: the noodles are a bit too thick for my taste, and the soup is more like a korean kimchi based soup...rather than a traditional tantanmen type of spicy soup base (which was my impression since it was named "gekikara" or super spicy...and it wasn't that spicy to begin with). but still it was pretty good, i'd still recommend ramen totto over this place.

“A little expensive and nothing special.”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

St. Marks is a great place to go for some late night food, or typically some cheap food.

However, I found this restaurant to be just average and to be a little pricey for what it was. I ordered the Spicy Miso Ramen which turned out to be $10.50, more than I'd like to pay for a bowl of noodles. It wasn't really spicy, so if you want a good dish with some flavor to warm you up on a cold, winter day then this is it. The food was fine, nothing great but it wasn't bad either.

The service was ok, I found the waiter to be a little rude. We were trying to split the bill on three cards but was told that we could only split the bill using two cards. He then told us we should've told him before we got the receipt that we wanted to split the bill. Nowhere in the restaurant does it say that. He had a slight attitude, but other than that, everything was just average.

There are, in my opinion, other places that would be much better and more worth your money on St. Marks.
