I've been to them all in manhattan. Ippudo, Toto, Ivan, naruto, Sapporo, bossa nova, terekawa, the list goes on And Hide-Chan ramen is the best of the best. They're menu accommodates every Japanese food and flavor you could want. They're soup is simply bliss, and not overly fatty and deliciously smooth. They're noodles (they have straight and wavy) have the perfect amount of slurp, slide, and bouncy bite. There is not a more satisfying bowl of ramen in New York.

Good food, service and price but get there early before the crowds flow in. A must for ramen lovers.

Good ramen, and also order the pork and shrimp dumplins and the pork roll. Gets crowded, so show up before 5:30

Hide-Chan is a once a week lunch spot for my coworkers & I. The food is amazing and is hearty & filling without putting you into a carb coma. Once you get seated service is quick and efficient (it can get busy at noon so you may wait for a table) if not a little brisk. The ramen can be as soft or as firm as you want. If you don't specify it will be medium. Same can be said of the broth. If you want it less "rich" (fatty) order the NY Style. Monday thru Wednesday you get a free topping and the small draft is the perfect size for a lunch beer if you so desire. If you like authentic Japanese ramen, definitely give it a shot.

I have read all the reviews here and honestly I am a little surprised. Hide-Chan makes a fantastic bowl of delicious ramen (go "NY style" for a bit of a lighter broth or "traditional" if you're feeling full richness. The appetizers like pork buns and gyoza dumplings are potentially even better and if you go before 6:30, they're half off. It's one of the better hearty meals in midtown for about $20 a person or less. One more thing... I'm not a nut for political correctness, and I understand that some would assume that if Japanese people frequent the restaurant - it must be good. On the other hand, describing the people as "Japanese-looking" or "seeming" is a tad on the racist side.

Didn't care for the noodles. Didn't care for the broth. Didn't care for anything. I'm no ramen expert but you should avoid this place.

I tried the Hakata Kuro Ramen, in a rich broth. They aren't kidding when they say rich. It's basically a bowel of molten pork fat with noodles and some other things in it. It was delicious (although not quite up to Ippudo level) but I couldn't finish the broth because it was so rich - but that's my problem and not theirs. I had no issue with service at all, and they even threw in a pork bun on the house. Next time I'll get the less rich broth.
