Never have I been more disappointed in a ramen spot. This place is horrible compared to the one in Hong Kong. I ordered the ramen with seafood both and it was extremely salty. When I asked the waiter if anything could be done, he said...More

Ramen is definitely very good. Appetizers are good (cucumbers or shrimp are OK, pork is excellent). Very good selection of sake, worth having some. Only 4 varieties of wine, reasonably priced. Friendly service. Noisy but tolerable - probably not good for a romantic dinner. No...More

We walked into a small bar/foyer already packed with fellow young professionals. It was a Saturday night and the wait took 40 minutes. The ramen we had were great, but the broth was a little on the salty side (too salty for some of us)....More

We've been to many of the terrific ramen restaurants in New York, but this one is stands out as special. Ippudo's pork buns are different and wonderful because of its unique sauce. The cucumber appetizer from the bar menu (served at our dinner seats) were...More

After seeing a play on a cold winter's evening we stopped at Ippudo about an hour before they closed. I could wax poetic in any number of ways but it all boils down to this: The best ramen ever. The broth was so heavenly I...More

It will cost around 40$ if no appetizer. 15$ per ramen. But expect a long wait, to be honest try something else the food is not that great here over rated hype.
