Chukka Ramen is the brainchild of three ramen geeks with chops from the trenches of modern Japanese cuisine. Chuko means "vintage" in Japanese, describing the appreciation of careful selection and innovating with both traditional and novel ingredients.

    Veggie miso ramen is amazing. Actually considered ordering another bowl after I finished the first. That good.

    I liked the miso ramen but don't like the pork bone ramen... The waiter was pushing us to eat faster....

    Amazing ramen. Brussel sprouts are on point too.

    Fantastic food all around, especially the kale salad and any of their ramen. But it’s 2015 and they are cash only (even with multiple iPad point of sale setups behind the bar) 🙁.

    "This ramen has a great depth of flavor! You know it must be good when it's 95 degrees out and you decide to have a ripping hot bowl of noodle soup for lunch." Chef Joey Chmiko Read more

    TimeOut #10 Ramen; "a gorgeous soft egg that spills its yolk into a complex and buttery miso broth; fat, springy noodles bobbing in the comforting soy broth"

    High quality Asian cuisine for a very reasonable price. Great for a lunch. Ramens are just amazing.

    How can these Brussels sprouts taste this good omg.

    Justin Choy · November 9, 2015
  • David F.

    All their ramens are absolutely fantastic, but if the special is mentaiko mazemen definitely give it a try.

    The market veggie ramen might be the best vegetarian ramen in the whole city.

    Kimchi Ramen is mind-blowing my good. The broth is deep and the noodles are perfectly chewy. Break yourself from tonkotsu-style broths and try this.

    Justin Pak · October 19, 2015

    Kimchi ramen is excellent. Brussels with fish sauce is also an excellent choice.

    Ethan · October 19, 2015

    The kimchi ramen with pork. Get it now.

    Amazing veggie ramen. Like, "two nights in a row" good.

    Chuko! Always good, always a wait. Go to Bar Chuko across the street and sate yourself with some wings, okonomiyaki, and chuhai before dunking yourself in glorious ramen broth.

    Cash Only! But they have an ATM :)

    Great Ramen place in Brooklyn. Get the Brussels Sprouts appetizer!

    Swap all that bullshit thin noodle for the thick and wavy yellow noodles. ATM in the back ($2+ fee). Lots of San pellegrino here. Brussels sprouts and mazemen

    Whether it's because of the miniscule size of the restaurant or the habit-forming flavors of the noodle bowls, there's always a crowd outside this ramen storefront. Read more

    Vegetarian ramen is great

    Get the vegetarian ramen. This is the best ramen they sell and frankly it's all they really need to sell.

    Sung C · September 3, 2015
  • Khoa M.

    The pork bone ramen is meh. The miso is a better option. Not worth the long wait for sure. 🍜

    Khoa Ma · August 23, 2015
  • Alison G.

    Miso ramen with ground pork. The best. The corn is so fresh and subtle sweet contrasts with the spice. Always add the little chili garlic sauce they give! Perfection.

    Alison Gresham · August 12, 2015
  • Leo K.

    Solid kimchi ramen. There's also a cold noodle special as well that I would try next time I go back!

    Leo Kim · August 10, 2015

    Get one of the specials!

    i think the food is borderline awful. I almost can't believe how much ppl like this place. Everything is too salty, greasy and the ramen.. I mean the ramen is just absolutely awful. Try okonomi

    Only Vegi ramen is good

    Kimchi ramen! Perfection.

    The Kimchi Ramen was mindbendingly good. Paired with a crisp Sapporo, it doesn't get any better.

    Juicy chicken wings and chicken miso with corn 👌

    The kale salad is now one of my top fave dishes in all of New York. I was talking sh*t at first, thinking it would be a waste of space, and then I proceeded to eat my words...and the best salad ever!!

    Veggie ramyun and kimchi is the best!

    The creamy corn ramen did disappoint but the chicken wings were yummy and the service is great.
