    Order the eponymous ramen made with a combination of cooked & toasted noodles that float in a coconut milk broth. There are also some traditional bites like edamame, gyoza, & spicy pickled cabbage. Read more

    With its unconventional ramen, Tabata may be a love it or hate it. This is the Sutamina Ramen - spicy miso & soy sauce flavored noodle soup w/ pork, leeks, scallions, garlic paste & egg.

    Tabata's namesake dish intertwines Burmese and Japanese cuisines. The broth is a combination of soybean and coconut, which is then topped with spicy chicken, red onions, flavored egg, and cilantro.

    I and my husband opted for ramen, our daughter had a rice with fried chicken and some sauce and everything was sooo good. Really I probably come back to New York just because of this noodle soup.

    Always a solid choice for a meal in this odd part of town behind Port Authority. The Tan Tan Men Ramen is always a good choice as well as the Takowasabi. Read about my visit on WinstonWanders below! Read more

    Dark Men: This garlic-infused black sesame broth is rather alarming but it slurps up mellow and porky, with the scallions providing highlights. Read more

    Nice to find a ramen place that shows a little creativity. The coconut milk-based Tabata Ramen dish is tasty.

    Although I felt like I was cheating on Ippudo, I was thrilled with this less crowded, less expensive alternative near my office. The ramen is also delicious. The spicy "Lava Men" is my favorite!

    You would get better ramen for almost the same price at Ippudo or Totto Ramen... but at least here there is minimal wait, which can make all the difference. Overall good ramen though! (Tonkotsu Ramen)

    Great quick lunch spot. The sutamina ramen was not the prettiest bowl I've ever seen but the combo of soy and miso broth is fantastic with the crunch of scallion.

    Good, reasonably priced ramen and other Japanese dishes. Get the Tabata ramen ( their other ramen dishes are good, too, but this one is special.) non-ramen dishes are good too.

    AMAZING. Best ramen AND rare authentic Burmese. Makes me miss my mom's home-cooked Burmese food. Love the garlic noodles (Sichet khao sware) and coconut noodles w/chicken (Ounoh khao sware).

    A great addition to the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood. The signature Tabata Ramen is a must-order - it includes spicy chicken, plus a coconut milk and soy powder broth.

    Don’t miss the sesame-flavored tan tan mien, the porky kyushuu, and the simple, salt-flavored shio ($8)—the Asian grandma’s answer to Jewish penicillin. Read more

    RS says: Try the Tabata Ramen. It "features cooked and toasted ramen in the same bowl, with a novel broth thickened with coconut milk and soy powder and Chicken nubs w/ raw purple onions."

    Try the house ramen. I'm not a fan of coconut but the broth was a perfect balance of thick and creamy

    The tabata ramen has a nice and creamy soup base made with chicken broth and coconut milk. Eat the noodles fast because they get soggy really quickly :(

    The coconut-milk broth Tabata ramen is great - pair it with one of their always changing "special appetizers" for a unique treat

    Delicious good value ramen - no fancy ingredients, only good quality tasty basics. Try the tabata and tonkotsu, both great.

    Pretty good! Service was quick, though they enforce a $5 minimum per head. Shouldn't matter if everyone is eating. My dad loved the "hellishly spicy" one. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    the Sutamina soup w/ pork was amazing. it hit the spot and was probably one of the most delicious ramen soups I've ever had. very authentic flavor.

    Coconut broth is incredible. Much prefer this spot over Toto. More flavorful ramen, better prices, and far less crowded.

    The spicy lava men is tasty, but not as good as Jin's. Still one of the better ramen spots in town though, and good value.

    The Tabata Ramen with coconut milk is a nice spin on the standard ramens offered throughout the city. Tons of umami and warmness.

    Good, serviceable ramen and broth. The Shio broth with extra pork is a favorite of mine. Skip the Gyoza here. It's way too garlicky.

    Drop in for a quick and decent bowl of ramen. Go with their house-named Tabata ramen with an egg.

    The Garlic noodles are bomb. But the calamari is out of this world, I order two orders just for me every time.

    Tabata. Pro tip: if you're in a restaurant with a menu item the same name as the place itself, you should probably order it.

    If you like spicy definitely go for Geki Kara Ramen with pork. I strongly recommend extra scallion, and if you're into it, extra pork.

    Interesting fusion flavors, love the signature Tabata and dark ramen. The tonkotsu ramen is pretty weak. The gyoza was meh.

    The Sutamina Pork ramen is epically awesome - not too spicy, just has some heat. Really delicious with the soft-poached egg.

    I've tried most of their ramen varieties and you really can't go wrong. I recommend eating in though, not as good out of the to go container!

    Cheap, good noodles. Lava ramen is spicy tonkotsu: silky with pork fat, racy with chiles. Best with fat-ribboned pork.

    Flavor of the Tonkotsu ramen is very good, but only 2 lonely pieces of overcooked pork in the lunch ramen. Places in the E Village provide better quality overall.
