Not worth the long wait and the crowded seating. There are so many other places for good ramen and buns at more reasonable prices. The hype seems to be bringing people in, and it just isn't worth it. Very disappointing. Service was excellent and helpful,...More

Went with my teen sons this time as they really like ramen. Had to wait 15 minutes to get seated but it was worth the wait. The typical dish, Momofuku Ramen is as good as always and the rib bits were excellent. It's a small...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
