After seeing ramen places talked about on the likes of Anthony Bourdain and Chef's Table, I had been really wanting to try a good place. Naruto is small, affordable, and tasty. I was staying with a friend in the UES so this was convenient as...More

The 'chef' who made my dish used to same gloves to handle my ingredients, cook my food, wash the pan, touch the sponge in the sink, clean the counter tops with a dirty rag. Really disgusting, seems he completely missed the point of wearing gloves....More

I love any ramen and NYC is the place to find many options. Definitely stop by Naruto Ramen when on the Upper Eastside (Or their other locations). If the line is long, you can get it to go instead of waiting for a seat. It...More

I really enjoyed eating soy-sauce based ramen (just called naruto ramen) here, although I'm a huge fan of kyushu (tonkotsu pork broth) ramen and rarely eat any other type. The broth tasted rich and felt like it's been boiled for a long time, as it...More

Wonderful food, cooked in front of you and eaten on a counter surrounding the cooking area. Very popular, so expect to queue outside the restaurant, but it's worth the wait.

Naruto is the best ramen restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It is small --food is served to patrons sitting at a single long counter. But the ramen is truly excellent and the setting conjures up happy memories of past visits to Tokyo

Small place, cash only but really good ramen! There are no tables, only bar seating so you can watch the guys make your ramen. We're really quick and it's a good portion. Definitely worth the visit if you're looking for ramen!

Bare bones, great food. And good prices. What else Do you need. You can order exactly what you want and pay fir that. Spartan type of place but great good. And no nonsense from people either. No r serrations used. But adequate. Seating

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the
