    A vegetarian-friendly source for reasonably priced ramen, soba, and more in Midtown. Be sure to explore the simple Japanese vegetables like tempura and bamboo shoots in chili oil.

    Short wait for Friday lunch! I got the menchanko noodles because I was craving a hearty bowl of noodle soup. It came with shrimp, chicken, tofu, etc. Great option for dining out in this area.

    In addition to several varieties of ramen, this midtown spot also offers "Menchanko" soups, inspired by traditional, hearty stews eaten by sumo wrestlers. Read more

    My second time here in several days. Visiting from Miami, I always look for something new to try. This place is great and reasonable. Get the grilled squid with ginger to start :)

    Huge space where you won’t have to wait, unlike many other Ramen places with an equally huge menu. Try the Kimchi Menchanko, the Tori Kara and the Menchanko Ramen.

    The Hakata Tonkatsu Menchanko is the best!! Their menchanko is very authentic! Amazing food at an amazing value!

    One of the Midtown places to get ramen if scouting from the second tier of ramen restaurants. Hide-chan is better, but lines form up the stairs by 12:15pm.

    Very average. The Hakata and tonkotsu are presumably the same things. Nice that they have a deal for noodle dishes though-- $3.50 for two onigiri. Had the spicy kurobata tonkatsu ramen

    This place just gained a new loyal customer. Had the spicy menchankto ramen and it was mouth-watering. Will return to try the rest of the menu.

    Love Menchanko-Tei for a budget Midtown snack: 10 apps are $3.75 and at least another 20 small bites are $4-6. 12 oz draft Kirin is always $3.75.

    Try the menchanko noodles. Simply amazing! Always full of japanese people, which means authentic food. Very affordable, too.

    Ramen is my thing and I approach it with an open mind bc there are so many different varieties (broth, noodles etc) Ramen was HORRIBLE. Couldn't finish it.

    Good, affordable, no-frills ramen. I am pretty sure this place was around before the recent ramen-ya boom.

    Spicy tonkatsu ramen is the way to go. Gyoza are light and crisped!

    Chige miso menchanko (slightly spicy). Great noodle dish that has a little bit of everything.

    Good for Kyushu-style food. The saraudon is good, and their Hakata ramen is their most popular dish.

    Decent Ramen at a decent price. Its no ipudo or nuerto ramen but still good. $3.75 mugs of beers in midtown? Ok

    Agreed with the Hakata Ramen. I got the shoyu ramen, and it only stood up to my brother's hakata because I added pork belly and a raw egg...

    The Kurobuta Hakata Ramen is delicious.

    Don't listen to the Internets - the Kurobuta Hakata Ramen is bland. Tasteless noodles, weak broth - go to Ippudo, Momofuku or Republic instead. Shoyu Ramen & pork gyoza are however, both pretty good.

    Hakata ramen. Don't even think about ordering another kind of ramen... I did and regretted it immediately.

    Second tier, but convenient and decently priced if you're in midtown.

    If the ramen doesn't cure your hangover, the oden will. Guaranteed.

    Would definitely recommend the Hakata ramen over the house style Menchanko ramen.

    House style, menchanko ramen, is thick like soba. Terrible. And what are the prawns doing there??
