Great little Ramen spot - ideal for lunch hour for the Midtown 9-5ers and suprisingly not filled with tourists. A fantastic value, Sapporo serves big - no make that - HUGE bowls of meat, veggie and noodle packed soups that you can barely finish. The decor is not divey, not impressive, but what you would expect for a noodle spot. This little place is a gem and I highly recommend it!!

Delicious, satisfying soup at a reasonable price. Perfect lunch for a cold NY day. Very hearty and filling. Good bang for the buck. Wish they delivered and took credit cards.

The ramen at Sapporo is solidly above-average: probably not the absolute best the city has to offer, but it's really good especially considering the price point (a huge bowl is ~$8! Two people can easily leave with a tab of < $35 for an appetizer, two bowls of ramen, and two beers). The atmosphere is authentic middle-of-the-road-ramen-shop it's pleasant and the staff is welcoming, but I wouldn't go expecting Per Se. It's several cuts above eating in a Chinese takeout shop, but not quite a formal restaurant. If you liked Sapporo, check out Hagia sake bar and izakaya right downstairs.

What is wrong with some people? This is a ramen shop. Ramen shops are hole in the walls in Asia. They were never meant to give you incredible service or treat you like a king for the 10 bucks you're shelling out for lunch or dinner. These kind of shops are meant to serve one purpose - give you good food at a cheap price - which is exactly what Sapporo accomplishes. The curry rice is excellent, and the gyozas are good. The noodles are also good, though there are some better once in the east village that I suggest you try out for ramen.

I ate in this restaurant several times in December 2007 whilst on holiday and loved the food. It was quick and very inexpensive. People have complained about the service, however it is very busy most of the time and its hardly a gourmet restaurant! I found the staff to be efficient, helpful and accommodating. I am going back to New York 13.12.2008 and will definately be going back to this restaurant. The Chan han is fab and the Ramen Soup was a favourite for me in the cold December weather. Use your noodle and eat in this restaurant!! The decor is simple, very simple, but do not let this put you off. For a quick pit stop, eat and go, this is a great restaurant. Enjoy!

I've been going to Sapporo for lunch for years. The Gyoza and Sapporo Special Ramen are the things to get. I wasn't too thrilled about the Curry Katsu, but it is authentic. The place is very busy at lunch. I've never had a bad experience.

I've only had the Chahan (pork fried rice) very good - its light (not greasy) and quite tasty - the gyoza are also good
