First of all: to the person who wrote the review right below mine -- where the heck are you from? Who says "oriental" anymore? You sound so backwards & ignorant. *Shakes head in amazement* Anyways. Food was decent, service decent, overall okay. Nothing spectacular.

We went into NYC for a Saturday matinee rather than the Wednesday, and expected a massive crowd. Well, because of a problem, maybe with the air conditioning, Sapporo opened a little later than usual, noon. We were first in line, so we spent the time looking at the menu, and talking with the other customers, mostly oriental, about their favorite courses there. When we got to our table, we had two different colored glasses for the water, and attempting to stay in mode, we chose to use chopsticks, although my wife finally asked for regular utensils, and the waiter had them there in less than half a minute. We shared the Gyozo (the pork and vegetable dumplings), and along with the sauce, it was a great appetizer. My wife had the pork in soy/ginger sauce, with rice, and it was excellent. I had the Yakisoba, the noodles with vegetables and pork with a mouth watering sauce, and it was so blissfully tasty. Maybe they could stay in theme and play some Japanese music rather than the American rock and roll, but for $23, just a block from our play, and within spitting distance of Times Square, this has to be one of the best bargains in NYC. Normally, we try to choose a different restaurant of different ethnic background, but ours was such a positive all around experience, that we just may break that rule, and go to Sapporos again. I defy you to find a better overall bargain , either in terms of quality or quantity, anywhere in the heart of the Theatre District.

This is the place to go to get your money's worth AND it's cheap, which is incredibly difficult to find in Midtown....I work a block from Sapporo and I wish I could eat there every day!...It gets busy, especially at lunch time but it moves fast...I've never had anything there I didn't like....I'm not the biggest fan of Ramen BUT this place makes FABULOUS Ramen.....all the rice dishes I've had there are very good as well....I've NEVER been disappointed.....My faves: Miso Ramen, Gyoza Rice, Beef Sukiyaki....It's definitly the best place to go if you don't want to spend too much on lunch...

My girlfriend and I have eaten here many times before and food is always delicious. The same cannot be said for the service which is at times very poor. We've seen waiters chase people down the street because they only left a small tip! The same happened to us once when we "only" gave 10% because the girl who served us was rude and lazy. She ran out after us demanding more money! The service you get in Japan is top notch and we don't even tip. I would like to see management hire more service-minded people.

On our first trip to NYC we purchased a travel guide book (Frommers) and it suggested Sapporo's. We have been back to NYC twice since and Sapporo's is on the top of our list every time! We have sent so many friends there too! Highly Recommend it if you LOVE japanese food, or if you are looking to TRY japanese food...and of course if you are travelling on a budget.

authentic japanese ramen. good value of price and food. cash only! oh, and don't expect anything from decor, it's almost like a fast food restaurants, that you have to rush in and out because of the people waiting.

Best restaurant I've ever went! Excellent service, great food (I took the pork cutlet with rice and curi sauce), it was excellent. I also learned to eat with sticks, so it was fun. And to conclude, the girl who served us was cute. I recommend this restaurant to anyone going to New-York City.
