    Been going to this spot for about 3 years. Used to love it, decided to try out their new location and I'm very disappointed! Service from the new staff is shitty and not as homey as it used to be.

    Ask for green tea. You'll get hot water in a coffee cup with a bank logo. Along with a dried tea bag like cheap Lipton. And that will cost you $1. I gave this place 2 tries. Never again.

    Shoyu ramen with chashu is delicious. Get the one with extra pork if your hungry. Proper ramen and not so salty broth. It's also full of Japanese people.

    A bit disappointed. We had #2 & #4. Both, the broth was very light and not flavorful. The egg was clearly from the refrigerator since it was still cold. The pork was good.

  • Victoria N.
    The spicy ramen soup (whatever its called) is my favorite. Their special rolls are definitely ones for the books. Sucks that they don't deliver.

    Vegetarian noodle offerings taste very... flat. even the spicy tan tan (broth is like chili powder water). Throw some shiitakes and kombu in there, geez
    Tina Ye · October 30, 2011

    Got the miso ramen. Satisfies a craving and worth me coming back for another try but nothing note worthy. The chashu is pretty delicious.

    The Curry Ramen is THE BEST. Great flavor, love the half hard-boiled egg. If you are looking for the perfect comfort food, this is it.
    Shirin H · September 12, 2012
  • Laurence P.
    inexpensive. friendly fast service. Ramen was fair, possibly a little undercooked. Broth was good. Perfect for a cold day / quick meal.
    Laurence Paverd · April 2, 2013
  • Tiffany L.
    Unfortunately, I would not come again. Tasteless broth, extremely dry pork, and the shrimp gyoza was just bad overall. I really wanted to like this place too.
    Tiffany Li · May 31, 2013
  • Valerie S.
    Small dishes were the way to go in 2 early visits. Namesake ramen was only fair; bean sprouts and bamboo shoots missing.

    Shio ramen is popular on Hokkaido, a northern Japanese island where lots of expensive salt is mined, and in Tokyo.

    They have a roll for almost every school in NYU, including one for the library. The Poly roll tastes amazing.
    Sergey Smirnov · November 16, 2013

    Go for the standard Shio Tsukuken. It's more flavorful than the menu description leads you to believe!
    James Moriarty · July 21, 2013
  • Ong A.
    Nin Niku ramen comes with lousy buckwheat noodles. Over salted charchu pork. Over cooked cabbage and hot water. $12 bucks for this?
    Ong Arttasan · November 24, 2013
  • Niffy S.
    Curry ramen is way better than the shio chasyumen. I would never recommend chicken over pork but trust me.
    Niffy Spector · March 23, 2013

    On a hot summers day, get the hiyashi ramen natsu. Sweet and spicy but cold and refreshing.
    jeannie · June 26, 2012
  • Jacob R.
    Not the best ramen and the same price as better places. Go to rai rai ken or ippudo (or momofuku) for the good stuff.
    Jacob Ross · December 14, 2010
  • Jason K.
    Each Ramen Setagaya is a bit different. The shio chasyu tsukemen at the University Pl. one is amazing.
    Jason Kende · August 30, 2009
  • Pratheeksha M.
    The ramen was cold when they served it to me. Very pricy. $20 for just a ramen+tip is a bit atrocious.
  • Oskar v.
    I like this place, it's quick, cheap and tasty. The miso ramen is pretty good. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Tan tan men is the mayors (as of right now) recommendation. Not too spicy, but enough to make it interesting
    Benny Wong · April 11, 2011
  • Frank R.
    Just ok., but reasonably priced. Good but nothing more worth writing about. Try Republic or better yet Ippudo. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The curry Ramen is excellent; they have pork, chicken, and vegetarian broth.

  • Ilker F.
    Why can't i wait inside when i am taking my sushi 'to-go'? And wtf is 8$ per person minimum order limit? Never coming here again!!!
    Ilker Findik · July 25, 2015
  • Matt K.
    Great for lunch, but order ahead as all ramen dishes take ~20 min to prepare.
    Matt Kiser · January 3, 2013

    All the Gyozas are good! This is the veggie type.
    alissa nevita · March 13, 2013

    They moved from 90 University Place to 1 University Place. 5 blocks down from the old location
    Alice Mok · October 19, 2013
  • Ada C.
    Meh. Service wasn't very responsive and the ramen wasn't particularly spectacular for the price.
    Ada Chan · August 12, 2014
  • Evan Y.
    Curry ramen is my absolute favorite. Their chasyu is pretty good too.
    Evan You · April 27, 2011
  • Caroline Kay Hwa T.
    The most terrible ramen I have ever had. Please save yourself the trouble and do not come here.
    Caroline Kay Hwa Tan · September 16, 2013
  • Samantha K E.
    First time here. Got the miso ramen. Had a little red pepper but it wasn't overbearing. Got lucky with a new place!
    Samantha K Enriquez · December 14, 2010
  • Johnny S.
    I always order the tsukemen; they're very generous with the noodles.
    Johnny Szeto · November 26, 2013
  • DJ Marshall Moore E.
    Curry Ramen! Get there early for lunch gets packed fast
  • Alex X.
    Delicious every time. Get an extra soft-boiled egg, you need the protein.
    Alex Xin · September 21, 2013
  • Christine N.
    Man, I remember when this was Ramen Setagaya. Since they changed their name, their broth has been less than stellar. Bummer.
    Christine Ngo · August 30, 2010
  • Mike F.
    the Gyoza and chicken wings are amazing ... You should get them
    Mike Florio · January 29, 2013
  • Phillip
    It's okay. Wish they had pork bone broth. The dumplings were good though.
    Phillip · December 22, 2012
  • Courtney P.
    9piece roll lunch specials! Delicious and NYU-themed!
    Courtney Porter · September 3, 2014
  • Cheryl C.
    Ask for whichever ramen with roasted pork instead!
    Cheryl Cordova · April 24, 2014
  • Moon K.
    My fave is tan tan zen.. spicy but not too spicy.
    Moon Kim · June 12, 2013
  • Princess R.
    shoyu ramen is amazing! the noodles here are great
    Princess Rune · March 20, 2013
  • Warren C.
    Go up the street to hide chan. The ramen was a little watered down.
    Warren Cheng · January 20, 2013
  • Matthew W.
    We weren't big fans of the ramen here. The shio was bland.
    Matthew Weinberg · December 14, 2012
  • Bob G.
    If you like very weak flavored ramen, this is your spot. Otherwise, steer clear.
    Bob Geile · May 4, 2012
  • Wesley B.
    Ramen is above average, but not as good as Totto/etc.
    Wesley Bliss · August 24, 2014
  • Jeff S.
    Curry Ramen (Limited - whatever that means). Really good, plus green tea mochi.
    Jeff Savage · April 28, 2010
  • Olina S.
    Sushi is good but there's a minimum per person, which sucks.
    Olina Stathopoulou · May 26, 2015
  • Anna A.
    Great ramen and also try the curry rice. Amazing!
    Anna AC · December 14, 2013
  • Ted R.
    Shio tama (an egg thing) is amazing.
