I have ordered Manchenko for takeout at least a dozen times. They have pretty good noodles for a very affordable price. They never take more than 10 minutes for pickup. The Manchenko noodles are good, but try the noodles too!

Menchanko Tei has great food. Stick with the basics - soups and noodle dishes and you can't go wrong. On a cold day - or when you think you are catching a cold - their ramen soups can't be beat. They also have one soup, Hakata ramen, thin ramen in a pork based broth, which is a bit spicy and excellent. Likewise, in the summer they have a few cold or room temperature noodle dishes (I often get the one with a sesame sauce or a curry sauce) that are great. The dishes are almost all under ten dollars, service is fast and it is always filled with Japanese nationals. What more could you want?

This place is among the few Japanese noodle houses in NYC that actually serves ramen as it is supposed to be served. Some of the raters who found their ramen to be less than good perhaps don't fully appreciate Japanese noodles (especially if they are comparing ramen to Vietname pho or Thai noodles). If you want authentic Japanese noodles from the South, go there. However, if you prefer Sapporo ramen, their ramen might be a bit too robust and greasy...

I have also had a lot of experience eating asian noodles in broth - vietnamese pho, chinese mandarin/cantonese noodles, japanese udon, etc. I ordered the Hakata Ramen and found it was a bit average, sort of tasty but nothing spectacular. For the price, I do not think the noodles were worth it. Granted, it was less than $10, but noodles in broth can be found elsewhere for a better price and taste.

I'm addicted to Asian noodle soups. Pho, kuay- tiu, udon, ramen, champon, kalguksoo,...you name it because I've tried them all and am still searching for more. But this place ain't it- broth too salty, and ingredients, skimpy.

The hakata ramen is amazing. The service is polite and efficient, and the prices are completely reasonable. I will definitely make this a frequent lunch spot.
