    I come here for their delicious mabo ramen as an alternate to chashu, since their pork broth doesn't compare to Zundo-Ya or Ippudo.

    Came here during off peak time and it was lovely, the ramen was good, maybe a tad salty. Chashu (Pork) was tender and good.

    The ramen—made from a tasty shio broth and topped with pork chashu, bamboo shoots, and a slice of fish cake—was nothing remarkable, but it was good, filling, and cheap. Read more

    Got the miso ramen with the thicker noodle, was almost like an udon noodle. Wasn't very impressed but I would give it another shot.

    More like Chinese noodle soup than authentic Japanese ramen. Not a favoured ramen place.

    The pork buns are the bomb, the ramen is hearty, maybe not the best in NYC but it hits the spot on a cold day.
