    The noodles and broth here are decent but the meat is way too lean and overcooked.
  • Prad N.
    The tori tantan ramen is spicy, light, and flavorful. A solid choice on a rainy day.

    Feels like an underground music studio with a ramen bar built in. Love the music (90's jams) and the ramen ain't bad either. The Tori TanTan is my go to, not a huge fan of the popular karaage.

    So friggin good I'm tempted not to tell anyone so I can keep this place to myself. 😍

    THIS. PLACE. IS. AMAZING.

    If you like it spicy look no further than the Kara-shoyu with minced pork. Delicious and not too heavy. Extra ramen toppings are served on the side which means they will be cold :(

    Got the 2nd ramen, I think shoyu..thicker broth. Good but don't care for the red onions in it. Has chix cold cut strip in it? Extra $ for egg. Thin straight noodles, the decor is like a music studio

    I got the fried chicken lunch special and loved everything. I don't know what half of this stuff is but it was great

    The ramen with duck oil. You will not be disappointed. Meal wouldn't be complete without an order of kimichi, your tummy will thank you.

    An easy on the wallet midweek dinner spot in the village, rare as hens teeth!

    Kara-Shoyu - shoyu-chintan soup and spicy jalapeño / habanero chili oil, topped with minced pork and chives

    Not a fan of the uncooked (half raw) meat they put over their ramens. Broth too salty and thick for my liking.

    Was a huge fan of Ramen by Mew so had high expectations. Mew Men did not disappoint. Had both of the main ramens and they were exceptional though very different than any ramen I've had before.

    The tonkotsu ramen had thick, flavourful broth, and the pork was super tender! Also, there's bar seating if you're riding solo.

    This is the best thing that has happened to Cornelia street since the closure of Vagabond Cafe. They have this spicy salmon dish. It's insane. I get two in one sitting.

    Hits the spot, toppings are atypical but complement the broth! Kara miso was bomb. Go for lunch & grab the lunch set - pretty decent variety!

    One of the employees, Zin, has an album on Spotify called Ripe. They sometimes play it at the restaurant.

    Everything! Yuzu Ramen is a unique "tropical" flavored ramen. Spicy Miso is flavorful, surprisingly spicy. Definitely get the Kara-age. Weekend lunch set is a steal.

    Great lunch sets. Ramen with appetizer and salad for $13. Try yuzu ramen if you are feeling something more refreshing and lighter

    Great value at $13 you can eat till you explode, ramen's good but not amazing, a little salty. But really if you want to eat your fill, this is the spot!

    Char Su portions—they don't mess around! Got the Shuyo ramen with additional spinach, Bon Choy and snow pea pickle toppings. Was not disappointed and left very satisfied! Must try the spicy ramen next

    Inconsistent quality. Under seasoned on day one, over-miso-ed on day two.

    You touch the pork with your spoon and it dissolves into smaller pieces. Trendy, cheap, and has great service. I come here multiple times a week. Better than Ramen Ya. Cash only. Get the Kara Miso

    Most generous portion of chashu I've ever seen. Amazing $15 lunch platter, this place is a gem and a new favorite. Spicy miso is on point, and the fried chicken appetizer is done perfectly.

    Spinach and corn in ramen is a sure-fire way to my heart. Great music here too (old school rap)

    $15 for a lunch set with salad and side. Tonkatsu ramen had soggy limp noodles and unimpressive bland broth. The chashu was tasteless and too chewy. I'd skip this ramen shop and go elsewhere.

    The chicken tori age starter is full of flavor, pro move, save a few pieces to dip into your tonkatsu ramen broth when it arrives!

    $5 ramen until the end of January! The Tonkotsu Ramen has a nice, rich flavor, and I always love soft egg in ramen. They also have a $15 special. CASH ONLY.

    The NYU kids might dig this place - decor is all old audio equipment and 90s hip hop - but I am confused by the pesto dressing on the salmon salad

    Broth was thin and pretty flavorless. In a city full of great ramen, I would not come back here.

    The space is best for small groups or solo ramen sessions

    Offers several different styles of ramen, all of which look quality. While there are improvements that can be made that come with being a new restaurant, it is still worth checking out.
