    For takeout they put the noodles and the broth in different dishes. I like that. It's not Minca... But it's good. If you are like me and like spicy, you will add a lot of extra hot pepper flakes.

    The 'burnt leek' ramen tastes like burnt ashes. Not a good choice. The omelette with spicy cod row was delicious! The takoyaki was ok. The Iciban ramen (house special) was excellent. Good food!!

    RS says: try the Mayu Ramen "Darkest & stormiest bowl of ramen in the city, pork broth laced w/ garlic cooked almost to a cinder. Plethora of other ingredients: wood-ear mushrooms & bamboo shoots"

    Great ramen for a good price. The heavyset waitress is, shall we say, stern, but overall a great experience. Awesome that it's next door to my wife's office at Baruch College. Will return soon!

    The vegetable ramen for vegetarians didn't look good so ordered the shoyu with no pork. If you can handle light chicken broth as a vegetarian, it's a delicious alternative!

    Tastes like Naruto ramen to me. I ordered the Terakawa ramen. The egg was delish. For the lunch combo, u can add a side dish for $2.

    It's not the ramen hot spot of the moment, but it reminds me the most of eating at your local ramen shop in Japan. Chahan like Mom used to make and shoyu ramen like my old neighborhood shop in Tokyo.

    This hidden gem of ramen shop is really good although they skimp on the pork slices. Get the Terakawa Ramen and chahan (Set B). It's a dive and be prepared for rude service.

    There's an unadvertised $5 minimum for each person seated at the table, and it's not cumulative so if one person orders $30 of food everyone else still has to order at least $5.

    Get the terakawa ramen, it's an interesting take in a tonkotsu broth - lighter but still as flavorful. Good portions too!

    Tasty, affordable, and never seems to be packed! Mayu ramen is a must-have. Good place to duck into with friends, find a table in the corner and talk. Cash only!

    Lunch specials are awesome, particularly the egg bowl & curry. Call in your order between 11:30 and 12.

    The mayu ramen is accented with black garlic oil, giving it a speckled color and roasted flavor. Next best thing to their winter oxtail ramen.

    The mayu ramen and homemade fried garlic are so good that I will come back even though the service was really slow and the cash only policy.

    Must have the Ra-Yu Lime ramen. Bits of tender pork melt in your mouth. Absolutely love the service here. "Thank you dear".

    If you forget that you aren't carrying cash (as I do), there is an ATM in the deli two doors down on the corner of 23rd and Lex

    Try either the Terakawa or Mayu - the pork bone based soup they come in has excellent flavor. Don't be scared of the dark color.

    If you like pork, theTerakawa Ramen can be a little heavy. The Shoyu Ramen is just right if you're looking for something lighter.

    Saturday Sapporo/edamame deal is awesome. Same with Sunday gyoza deal. Get the special ramen for the season while it lasts!

    The sho-yu ramen bowl was satisfying. The dumplings side made the perfect pairing. Would eat again.

    Decent food and the only ramen spot in the area. But super aggressive waitresses make it hard to be comfortable. (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The black garlic oil ramen is bomb, especially with the crispy fried garlic bits in the shaker.
