If you like juicy shredded chicken, crunchy cabbage and fried garlic slivers then search no more. The ramen will make you smack your momma it's that good. I can't find chicken ramen anywhere better!

I'd have liked to say that i love their curry ramen but that is not the case, unfortunately. I found it too oily and the curry a little too dilute. But the fried rice was another matter! It was SO Good!!

Tried Miso Soup, NEVER again.But the biggest disappointment were the potstickers - burnt & bitter. Pork inside them had no flavor either, definitely not authentic tasting like the ones in Chinatown. Will never order again from them.

I, like most New Yorkers, am guilty of falling for the great ramen craze that has swept this city for the past couple of years. I LOVE this place. Between its cozy atmosphere, no wait time for food, delicate silky gyoza, velvety broths, and springy noodles, it certainly gets my vote. My only complaint, (and it's kind of a big one), is that they NEED to start accepting credit cards.

I'm not claiming to know anything about fancy ramen but I do enjoy a bowl here and there. Rai Rai Ken is small and quaint and well worth a 15 minute wait. The ramen here is good but sometimes I wonder why I just paid $10 for it. BUT their pork fried rice is sooo good! I mean soooo GOOD! When it comes right off the wok and it's HOT and BUTTERY (Yup, buttery!) it's soooo good! It's so good, it will make you want to slap your mama! I'll take two more orders of the pork fried rice to go... THANKS! Oh, and the wife keeps on stealing my naruto kamaboko... can I have more then one slice?

i found the soup base for the noodles was rather bland. there was also about 2 decent pieces of meat in my soup. i think to enjoy these dishes you'll need to have some soy sauce or some hot sauce on standby. overall, the noodle soup was mediocre. i've had a lot better from menkui tei, minca, and menchanko.

I love their noodles and even deal with the fact that they're cash only, but to send a delivery guy with no change??? Come on folks.
