The food was great, the service is fine, the space is fantastic, but it's a bit more than the other ramen places in the East Village. Some would argue it's worth the extra money. Note: this is a different style of ramen from the clear salt kind you get at Setagaya.

Broth was very intense liquefied essence of pork fantastic and even better with sake. I am a ramen-iac and think this place is one of the best...true Japan quality finally in US...and great service and decor. Mark my words: Ramen will be the new Chipolte.

This is probably one of the best. The noodles tasted fresh, the broth was rich and delicious. The pork was yummy too but there was only one slice which wasn't enough for me. Next time I'll get it with extra pork. The service was good too, everyone was friendly.

This is, without question, the best ramen yet to come to NYC. I was a bit worried that the people in charge were going to change the orignal ippudo flavors to "suit" American taste buds. Well, it tastes eerily similar to the "honten" in Fukuoka. I highly recommend the akamaru (this is the richer of the two soup bases with a little added miso). The draft beer (we chose the kirin) was icy cold. The only "huh?" I had was that they do not have gyoza on the menu, and Ippudo's gyoza are delicious. I think if we tell them this, they will get them on the menu. You will not be disappointed! Only warning: This is not for vegetarians/people looking for light fare.
