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.

Me and My friends ordered and had some food there. The noodle, the appetizer were good but the customer service was bad. We requested the waiter to give us one hot sauce, he told us it's gonna be charged. We're ok for the first time. But for the second time, we requested some lemon but that waiter just brought one piece of lemon for 4 people and repeated again it's gonna be charged. I was surprised that why he kept on mentioning about that. We went there for enjoying the food and spending some bucks for good food. Mentioning about the money again and again didn't make sense. We had to wait 25 mins to get the food.

Fun little place, great decor and nice, upbeat staff. Most of the clients seem to be Japanese. But the ramen could be a little tastier, have more depth. I think Totto Ramen has the edge, but if you're in this hood, worth a try. Plus they take credit card, which Totto does not.

I had Hakata Spicy Ramen- nice zip in the broth, tender and moist pork, and the noodles were perfect. It hit the spot on a cold winter day. Simple. Warm. Delicious.

Waiting 30 minutes for dumplings is unacceptable! esp when it's not pipping hot or fresh.... we waited over 40 minutes in total and we still didn't get our ramen....i'll understand if the place was packed and all but it wasn't! we decided to cancel the order.....we all complained that we had to wait for so long for the ramen and the waitress had the nerve to show us a slip to prove that we only waited 20 minutes! we got there and ordered by 1:20....they placed the order in at 1:30!

We ate here after the movies on a tip from NY Magazine. The place is an offshoot of Yakitori Totto, on the West Side, which is itself excellent. The ramen - pork broth with scallions and noodles and pork (you can order extras for a bit more)- was excellent - as good as Ippudo downtown, and cheaper. The service was fine, and the place is filled with Asians of every age and probably every nationality. They know good noodles
