I'm a Japanese American who previously resided in Roppongi, Tokyo. I just tried Ippudo twice and have to say, I am not impressed. The pork belly buns and ramen don't compare at all to other Japanese restaurants. I think they should try polishing up the flavor. The food is somewhat lacking. Sadly disappointed with Ippudo!

Every single ramen dish was pork. Who does that?

Its pretty good but didn't live up to my expectations. I still prefer Momofuko and the buns here didn't compare. I didn't care for the mayo in the buns and rice either, wish I told them to hold it. It had a good vibe though.

The broth is awesome. Two slivers of pork belly in a not hot enough soup was a downer for $14.00. $8.00 for two small pork buns? Really!

Simply, one of the best Ramen places in the city. Awesome food. Totally worth the long wait.

We had to wait for over an hour to get a table. I know it's a bit much but we had a friend in town who hadn't been there in years so we wanted to make his wishes come true.... The wings are divine...slightly spicy, very flavorful. The pork buns were like little clouds of love and the ramen, oh the ramen. It was sincerely worth it and I'm definitely hooked. They just need to make the place bigger or find another location. Share the wealth!

This is my first review on Menupages, but unfortunately there are no accolades for Ippudo. I've been coming here for ramen, since I moved to NY about 2 years ago; but yesterday, I abruptly left the restaurant when management decided to slap me with a surcharge of $4/person for eating a cupcake in their restaurant. No one gave me a warning, but they just automatically added the ridiculous surcharge to my tab. I went late in the afternoon, and did not have to wait for a table, but for some reason, things were extremely in the kitchen. I mean, come on, it should take 5 minutes to bring out a bowl of ramen. I was starving and the only thing to stave off my hunger were the cupcakes that I bought from Butter Lane. I asked if, instead, I could order an appetizer or drinks, but they didn't even give me the option. Moreover, I think it's annoying when this "policy" was not listed anywhere on the menu. The manager on duty said management is allowed to do whatever they please, but shouldn't they, instead, try to please the customers? Afterall, you are paying $15 for a bowl of peasant food. So fellow ramen enthusiasts, beware! Go elsewhere to fill that void .
