Gets very crowded for lunch. If you want takeout, call ahead.
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.
Second tier, but convenient and decently priced if you're in midtown.
Spicy tonkatsu ramen is the way to go. Gyoza are light and crisped!
Good, affordable, no-frills ramen. I am pretty sure this place was around before the recent ramen-ya boom.
Decent Ramen at a decent price. Its no ipudo or nuerto ramen but still good. $3.75 mugs of beers in midtown? Ok
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.
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
Great Nabe, I love the one in Hawaii! This one is not so bad!
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.
So sad they ran out of takoyaki 😞 Next time!!
Great lunch spot...live the soups...when it gets nice out...go for the cold noodle dishes
Deliciously garlic-y kimchi!
Great Tonkatsu Ramen! :-)
Maguro Poki is the tits. So goood.
Good for Kyushu-style food. The saraudon is good, and their Hakata ramen is their most popular dish.
C health rating .....
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.
Small, cozy, simple, good food, and even good service :)
They scored a 'C' on their most recent health department check.
Meh it was edible, but it definitely proves that Toto Ramen is worth the wait!
They have a C rating
The Kurobuta Hakata Ramen is delicious.
The Hakata Tonkatsu Menchanko is the best!! Their menchanko is very authentic! Amazing food at an amazing value!
Try the menchanko noodles. Simply amazing! Always full of japanese people, which means authentic food. Very affordable, too.
Tonkatsu ramen! Pitchers of Kirin, chicken Kara age & Agedashi Tofu
Order the Spicy miso menchanko all the way!!! Sans fishballs - not my thing.
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.
Tsuke men with spicy miso and pork is my go-to. I can't even order anything else anymore cus I end up regretting. That good!
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.
If the ramen doesn't cure your hangover, the oden will. Guaranteed.
Hakata Ramen. Chanpon. Top picks.
Super nice staff!
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 :)
Amazing Ramen, appetizers are cheap and reasonably sized, great place for Saturday lunch.
Best ramen in NYC!
Best noodles in NYC
Chige miso menchanko (slightly spicy). Great noodle dish that has a little bit of everything.
Hakata ramen. Don't even think about ordering another kind of ramen... I did and regretted it immediately.
I also tried the Hakata Ramen not knowing how popular it is...it's rather tasty.
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.
Excellent and quick, Yakisoba
