    Terrible Service

    This restaurant's waiters are as cold as its name suggests! They were rude and unwelcoming, opposite to what you would expect from a Japanese restaurant. The food was also not that great and while prices are low, they are definitely not low enough to compensate for their bad service. I do not recommend this noodle place.

    simply the best

    I've been eating here for 20 years, when I can. I found it after seeing the movie Tampopo, and looking for a NYC analog. It's still here! I've maintained for a long time that the soups are medicinal - that is, they both cure any minor ailment you may have coming in, or act preventively if you're healthy. The mabo ramen is unmatched on the East Coast. Why they don't offer 20-gallon barrels of their soups to take home and store in cellars is beyond me. They could be auctioned like wine! The slightly tacky, noisy, happy atmosphere there, with the young chefs shouting, laughing and barking orders and comments adds to the pleasure. Often I see only Orientals eating here at lunchtime, and for an hour or so I am privileged to feel Japanese.

    Sapporo is one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants I've found in Manhattan. The food is very good and the service. . . is what it is in Japan for a restaurant in this price range. Efficient for ordering, and then they move on to other customers. I would love the pork to be sliced more thinly for the ramen, but otherwise, it's souperlicious. If you're there on your own, or with one other person, sit at the counter. It's dinner and entertainment all in one!

    Have been eating there every week for months! The Sapporo Special Ramen and the Katsu Don are easily the best in Manhattan. Service is extremely efficient, almost too much so sometimes (handing you check halfway through the meal). Great for lunchtime crowd too - even though the line can get long, the restaurant has rapid turnover. HIGHLY recommended!

    Great Noodles

    I had the soy noodle soup and it was great. Definitely stick with the soups. Also, I'm asian and if someone called me oriental, I and most asian people would be offended, because it's ignorant and has connotations of racism. To be told to lighten up would not be helpful because it only downplays a very real and very serious issue.

    Lighten up!

    I don't think the guy who wrote the "Offensive" was intending to do so. Perhaps you should take things less seriously. Enjoy the food!

    i agree...

    that comment below is ignorant. but the sad thing is, he didnt even realize he was being offensive. "oriental", "normal utensils", "stay in theme"... it is a bit sad.
