Quick service and fairly quiet setting. Good happy hour prices on food and drink. Ramen is good, and sushi is good. Nothing was fantastic but we had no complaints. We stopped in for a quick bite and a break from Times Square

Unfortunately, this was my first and last time coming to this place. The online hours say they close at 11pm. However, by 10pm I was being rushed to finish. The miso ramen was too salty and the help was giving me and my company nasty looks the whole night. Horrible. I would never recommend.

It is a small space and the seats are not comfortable, but their Tonkatsu Ramen is delicious. Service was quick, but I could get the servers to keep me supplied with water. We were going to the theater so the quick service enabled us to eat leisurely without feeling rushed.

I had the gyoza, pork bun and shoyu ramen with pork. Enjoyed my meal but it wasn’t anything special. The gyoza was too oily and arrived after the ramen. I liked the pork bun and would order it again. The ramen was ok but doesn’t stand out compared to other ramen available nearby. I appreciated the top ups of my hot green tea on that cold night.

My chirashi (assorted sashimi over a plate of rice) had fish scales in it. When I pointed it out to the waitress, her respomse was to laugh and say "fish have scales".

My friend ordered a glass of red wine and they brought out a white. Two waitresses came over insisted that she must have ordered the white and reluctantly replaced it.

Between lacking quality of food and poor service, would not recommend this place.

very disappointed. I LOVE Ramen and Sushi. Been to more than 50 places...this is a 2.0 at best! Really not good, not traditional and barely any sides to add! Broth not made by cooking 24 hrs! chicken and pork added AFTER and very dry! No veggies, noodles over cooked.

The first time I went here I was craving ramen after watching the Rockettes Christmas show. We wandered in, were seated immediately and were offered hot tea which was a nice way to warm up with the cold weather outside. Two of us ordered the Tonkotsu Ramen and one got a salmon bento box with spicy tuna rolls. Everything came out fast and at the temperature it was supposed to be. The ramen was excellent and a very generous portion, I left full, warm and happy! The only slight inconvenience is there are a lot of employees who appear to have different roles so when we were ready to order it took a minute to get the right waitress to our table. Other than that everything was quick and efficient.

Pork belly bun was not too flavorful. I’ve had better tonkotsu ramen too, but kimchi spicy ramen had a lot of flavor. Decent dinner in a pinch near theater district.
