  • J. I.G.The ramen was delicious.

    55555 by J. I.G.

  • Abdulelah DIf I could rate this place greater than 10/10 I would. Everything here is just amazing. Fried chilli peppers, spicy ramen, ichriraku ramen, and wagyu rolls.

    55555 by Abdulelah D

  • Steven NVegetable buns are my favourite.

    55555 by Steven N

  • DensBartender may try to upsell you on the "frozen beer" -- you don't need such tomfoolery in your life! (plus it tastes like the inside of a freezer-pack-thing)

    33333 by Dens

  • Maxwell TKaraka ramen is damn good. Can get xtra ramen for an additional $2

    33333 by Maxwell T

    55555 by Jonathan L.

  • YN KAkamaru ramen lunch set (mentai mayo rice and mini salad)

    55555 by YN K

  • Karolina PowęzkaEasily living up to the hype. When you take ramen, pick Shigureni topping - wonderful sweet and juicy pork.

    55555 by Karolina Powęzka

    55555 by Drew 5.

  • Jenko HEverything is delicious, but there aren't as many vegetable only options as some other places. If you like pork, it's amazing!

    55555 by Jenko H

    55555 by Jastine K.

    55555 by Burcu D

    55555 by Christine D

  • Ryan A.Maguro tartar, octopus, buns, and wings. Solid ramen but I prefer the thicker noodles.

    55555 by Ryan A.

  • Aditi K#2 pork buns in NYC

    55555 by Aditi K

    55555 by Emiliano Viscarra

  • Na Hyun EBeats all the other ramen spots in the city!

    55555 by Na Hyun E

    55555 by Christina Chin

  • Florencia 🦄 jFANTASTIC !

    55555 by Florencia 🦄 j

  • Justine JGet the vegetarian ramen with wasabi. You can add meat if you like. But rest assured, the vegetarian broth beats all the other broths, Hands Down.

    55555 by Justine J

  • Afi JBest ramen in NYC

    55555 by Afi J

  • Tabi TDefinitely get the pork and chicken buns to start! Their special ramen with dipping sauce this month was UNREAL. Get it with an egg!

    55555 by Tabi T

  • Marg1eInteresting, I think it's over rated. Long wait. Soup is ok. Noodle is ok. Service is very good compares to any ramen shop. 9.4 is too high I will rate around 8.5.

    55555 by Marg1e

  • Ting ARamen, shoyu ramen, tonkotsu ramen. ❤️

    55555 by Ting A

  • Samuel TPerfect ramen

    55555 by Samuel T

    55555 by Jin M.

  • Eric H.Best Ramen in NYC!

    55555 by Eric H.

  • Rachel PCame with party of 11 fantastic booths to accommodate, traditional ramen fantastic, enough to share!

    33333 by I-yen S

  • Marlon BrysonAwesome ramen experience. If you are in the East Village this is the place to be.

    55555 by Marlon Bryson

    55555 by Savannah Z

  • Hannah MPork buns and spicy chicken bowl!

    55555 by Hannah M

    55555 by Jack Holmes

  • Gabriela Mamazing ramen to get when in NY!

    55555 by Gabriela M

  • VoiceStreetYou're actually at an advantage if you're dining alone here, for your wait will undoubtedly be shorter.

    55555 by VoiceStreet

  • Nick JohnsonThe chicken buns are also pretty great and a little bit different. Try the yuzu soda, it's a little like mountain dew but tastes like fruit rather than chemicals.

    55555 by Nick Johnson

  • あかり 神岸Akamaru Ramen very satisfying. Try both fish and pork buns.

    55555 by あかり 神岸

  • JwowThe Akamaru Modern ramen with egg and extra garlic oil will warm your spirit any day of the week! Put your name in and wander around the neighborhood while you wait.

    55555 by Jwow

  • Sam B.Level up your ramen with the pulled pork chashu topping (Shigureni). It comes on the side, but fire that deliciousness straight in on arrival!

    55555 by Sam B.

  • Kristen PeiranoThe modern ramen is the perfect ramen (if you prefer spicy do not get this one). Skip the pork buns. They are not even close to the hype

    55555 by Kristen Peirano

  • Tarik HartGroup of 4 and we ordered: Hirata Chicken, Hirata Pork Buns (2x), Umami Mekyabetsu (Brussel Sprouts), and then each got our Ramen (I got Akamaru Modern w/toppings). Perfect amount, amazing as always!

    55555 by Tarik Hart

  • lindai s.Try the tuna tartar as appetizer and green tea crème brûlée as dessert! Can't go wrong with the ramen dishes as main. I did like the vegetarian one a lot.

    55555 by lindai s.

  • Robert StewartAkamaru Modern or bust

    55555 by Robert Stewart

  • Eric P.Pork buns. Wings. Ramen. Sake. Finger guns shooting into the air.

    55555 by Eric P.

  • hitgirli have had such bad experiences with the services here in the past that i can't bring myself to come here again. its way overrated!

    33333 by hitgirl

  • JorisGo solo. Get ramen within 15 minutes. Eat like a Japanese emperor. Great success!

    55555 by Joris

  • Robert StewartAkamaru Modern ramen, Pork Buns to start.

    55555 by Robert Stewart

    22222 by Longfei Xing

  • Albie CPork buns!! And everything else.

    55555 by Albie C

  • Marisa M.Everything was good. Get the paper buns and ribs for apps

    33333 by Marisa M.

  • Dina RughaniThe modern and the spicy ramen are both delicious

    55555 by Dina Rughani

  • MashkaSamurai ribs app! Wow

    55555 by Mashka

  • David L.Best Ramen in NYC we found on our trip. Might be the best period. Get the Shishito peppers!

    55555 by David L.

  • Mike M.Unfortunately not as good as Minca or Ivan Ramen. (I prefer thicker noodles - these are very thin).

    55555 by Mike M.

  • cupkeykAkamaru Ramen with their special egg was awesome. One of the best authentic ramen restaurants in Japan now in other countries. I also like their tea and bean sprouts appetizer free on the table.

    55555 by cupkeyk

  • cam JGood pork buns, nice bar to wait at before table ready. Buzzing place. Young and mixed crowd. Best ramen I've had in ages.

    55555 by cam J

  • Jeff KaoCome in the middle of the afternoon (after 2) and avoid the lineup!

    22222 by Jeff Kao

  • Jeff KaoPoached Egg. Amazing.

    55555 by Jeff Kao

  • Alissa RotbergSouppppps and pork bunz

    55555 by Alissa Rotberg

  • Clara BayarriGreat ramen, though the wait is really long

    55555 by Clara Bayarri

  • Jeremy K.One of NYC's cult ramen spots. Try their famous pork buns to start your meal and then get your slurp on with some amazing ramen!

    55555 by Jeremy K.

  • Sue YeeRamen, pork buns

    55555 by Sue Yee

  • Alex C.Dat ramen. Brooklyn makes a beer for Ippudo that's incredible. And of course the pork buns.

    55555 by Alex C.

  • Karen L.You can always walk around the block while waiting for your table! Plenty to see/do

    55555 by Karen L.

  • Tom S.Pork buns.

    55555 by Tom S.

  • VoiceStreetSpice-lovers should go for option number three, the bowl with spicy meat sauce that you stir into the broth, rendering it brick red and incredibly tasty.

    55555 by VoiceStreet

  • Samir ChainaniThe spicy paste goes so well with the Akamaru modern.

    55555 by Samir Chainani

  • J L.If one can stand the 1 hr plus wait while eating the delicious pork buns, the ramen is good. However, the wait time diminishes the tastiness of the ramen. Other quality ramen shops around the area.

    55555 by J L.

  • Olof CarlsonGreat pork buns. Best ramen I've ever had. Quite crowded so be prepared to wait for a little while in the bar.

    55555 by Olof Carlson

  • david l.Go. Leave ur name/number. Go get a drink. Come back. Eat manhattans best ramen.

    55555 by david l.

  • Kris C.You want the Akamaru Modern. I'll sit back and wait for you and your stomach to thank me for my advice.

    55555 by Kris C.

  • Vansi V.The pork buns were meh. But the Karage Men with a poached egg was really good!

    33333 by Vansi V.

  • Katherine M.I won't be joining the Ippudo cult, but do concede that the pork in my bowl of ramen was the best I've had yet, and the pork buns were better than Momofuku Ssam's. Come alone to avoid waiting forever.

    33333 by Katherine M.

  • Victoria NatenzonThe pork buns are to die for an the ramen is 🙌. Go REALLY early if you want to avoid a 2+ hour wait

    55555 by Victoria Natenzon

  • Victor IWorth the wait

    33333 by Victor I

  • Alp OzcelikWasabi shoyu ramen is my fave! Be sure to get nitamago in it! (Also, mix well; the wasabi oil floats to the top.) definitely get the pork buns as well: best in the city!

    55555 by Alp Ozcelik

  • Lanaa C.Best pork buns, ramen is just ok.

    55555 by Lanaa C.

    55555 by Lucy

  • Steve C.Aggressively hip, trendy noodle playground.

    33333 by Steve C.

  • Sean R.My mouth waters every time I think of their Akamaru Modern.

    55555 by Sean R.

  • Kelsey LeeWell worth the wait for some of the best ramen and pork buns in the city. #protip get the extra spicy sauce for your ramen.

    55555 by Kelsey Lee

  • Vanessa EExpect to wait 1-2 hours. The food is not worth the wait

    33333 by Vanessa E

  • Brian CantrellAkamaru modern ramen.

    55555 by Brian Cantrell

  • Greg F.Be prepared to wait, but totally worth it.

    55555 by Greg F.

  • Marc B.give ur name/# to hostess, go nearby to get a drink, buzztable app then tells u when u should come back. Order pork buns, Kirin draft, any ramen. Add kakuni and spicy paste. Rub tummy!

    33333 by Marc B.

  • Vivian C.The wait is normally long if you have more than 1 person (it could be a 2 to 3-hr wait). But I went there alone last time, and I was seated immediately.

    33333 by Vivian C.

  • Vivian C.Pork buns are the best!

    55555 by Vivian C.

  • Andrew P.What to Order: Akamaru Modern ramen, with miso paste, pork chashu, cabbage, sesame kikurage, mushrooms, scallions, and fragrant garlic oil.

    55555 by Andrew P.

  • Flora T.Omfg...the pork buns!!! They are not at all like the Chinese pork buns. It's almost like a mini soft doughy taco/burrito shell with chunks of succulent pork! The order comes with 2 of them.

    33333 by Flora T.

  • Grace Z.Akamaru is the best and most popular ramen. Veggie buns are absolutely delicious and I prefer them over pork buns. Ika Isobe (fried squid) and Samurai ribs are my favorite appetizers.

    55555 by Grace Z.

  • Nicole C.If you get the veggie option make sure to thoroughly stir in the wasabi topping first. Yum!

    55555 by Nicole C.

  • Yixin L.Yum yum yum

    55555 by Yixin L.

  • Adam F.I will marry this restaurant.

    55555 by Adam F.

  • Jhocef M.The pork bun is a must try and the Akamaru modern ramen is to die for! Their pork bun is better than momofoku based on my unbiased palate

    55555 by Jhocef M.

  • Stan B.One of the top 5 Ramen spots in the city. You will wait 1-2hrs during the evening dinner rush. But it'll be absolutely worth it. Make sure to try the pork buns, too.

    55555 by Stan B.

  • Jhocef M.The pork bun and the Akamaru modern is a must! #todiefor

    55555 by Jhocef M.

  • Frank D.Wasabi ramen is excellent. Make sure you mix it well since they use real wasabi stems

    55555 by Frank D.

  • Neilson A.The prices are kind of outrageous for ramen, they encourage you to order extra toppings and they add up. But damn if it wasn't worth it. The Karaka Men was the best bowl of ramen I've had in years.

    55555 by Neilson A.

  • Nali K.ippudo plays the worst music ever

    22222 by Nali K.

  • Nali K.Waited for two hours. I don't know why ppl are crazy about ippudo.I'Ve been to so many better places in NY that don't have this long line. Definitely not the best ramen in the city!

    33333 by Nali K.

  • Howard L.Come at 11 when it opens. There's no wait.

    33333 by Howard L.

  • Jack O.Patiently waiting on your meal? Pass the time by poking the squidgy wall.

    22222 by Jack O.

  • MaximilianoAkamaru modern: smooth, delicious and addictive pork soup with tasty ramen.

    55555 by Maximiliano

  • Alex R.This place is a gem if you're in the neighborhood and want a quick delicious meal for one. While there's always a line outside, if you're solo they'll almost always get you in immediately.

    55555 by Alex R.

  • Hằng A.my come here

    55555 by Hằng A.

  • Sam S.I wanted to lick the bowl clean. Is that frowned up??

    33333 by Sam S.

  • Art J.If you like ramen, you'll LOVE this place. Just get here real early to avoid the lunch rush.

    55555 by Art J.

  • Christian D.Best buns in town! :-)

    55555 by Christian D.

  • Ameya P.The best ramen I've ever had in NYC. Great atmosphere for a group; sit at the bar if you can. Definitely get the pork/chicken buns too.

    55555 by Ameya P.

  • Josh B.Akamaru modern broth is layered, silky and savory.

    55555 by Josh B.

  • Jade B.Amazing spicy karaka ramen! Great service and ambiance. One drawback is that they do not allow to go service. Tip: you can get in almost immediately if you're dining solo.

    55555 by Jade B.

  • Cassie P.Beware to wait in a long line though sometimes it's a hit or miss. Try the KARAKA MEN with pork belly if you like spicy, otherwise get the Akamaru Modern.

    55555 by Cassie P.

  • Murat C.3 hour wait. Ah worth it?

    55555 by Murat C.

  • Valentina M.I ate at Ippudo. It was very yummy. I was underwhelmed.

    55555 by Valentina M.

  • Jeong Sun P.Try the Akamaru Modern Ramen

    55555 by Jeong Sun P.

  • Jeong Sun P.Try the Pork Bun

    55555 by Jeong Sun P.

  • Melissa K.Delicious ramen, but I was disappointed that Ippudo doesn't have the perfect tiny little gyoza like they do in Japan. No free tea and pickles like in Japan, either.

    55555 by Melissa K.

  • Jin J.Best pork buns of my life!

    55555 by Jin J.

  • Tom A.Waited an hour. as we were about to leave were called. Regretted staying. Pork buns ok but overall you can get better noodles with less wait 4 less $ 2 blocks away. Immitating Buddakan shouts annoying

    22222 by Tom A.

  • Ashley T.Pork buns are amazing and the ramen is good too. Make sure you don't come hungry because it can take up to an hour to seat 4 people.

    55555 by Ashley T.

  • Steven V.The best ramen I've ever tasted in my whole life

    55555 by Steven V.

  • sam p.Everything is delicious. Best Ramen noodles in NYC by far. Try the Akamaru Modern with Nitamago (soft boiled egg) and a side of Bakudan (spicy paste.) You'll be glad you did.

    55555 by sam p.

  • Scott W.The hype for this place is justified.

    22222 by Scott W.

  • Hayang L.Ask Noah to make you a drink while you wait... the New plum wine cocktail is sublime with just the right amount of spice.

    55555 by Hayang L.

  • Thomas C.Pork buns... Holy moly.

    55555 by Thomas C.

  • Samson N.It's always just as good as the last time I came here! You can't go wrong with the Akamaru Ramen with the pork belly.

    55555 by Samson N.

  • IanPork buns or GTFO

    55555 by Ian

  • Madam W.Don't overlook their appetizers. Special: Shrimp and tomato salad ($10) and the Agedashi tofu and eggplant ($10) were both some of the best I've had in a Japanese place!

    55555 by Madam W.

  • Dan K.Maybe I'm spoiled from LA but I found it to be overrated and overpriced. Solid ramen but at the price and the length of wait? I'm sure there's other ramen places

    33333 by Dan K.

  • Lu B.Come at 5pm ( right before they open the store for dinner ) is the shortest wait u could possibly get.

    33333 by Lu B.

  • Lu B.Best ramen in the city, pork bun is amazingggggggg but hate the hours line ...

    55555 by Lu B.

  • Michael M.In the winter, the Kogashi Miso ramen is my favorite in the city. In the summer they dont have it :(

    55555 by Michael M.

  • Carlos R.Try the Miso Ramen - Just too good (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by Carlos R.

  • Brian T.Order 4 sets of pork buns and then ask for Mel, twice. A person names Bo will come out and escort you to the basement. Go to the corner of the room and pull out a red brick. There you will find a map

    33333 by Brian T.

  • Lynh N.I have a gastronomic romance going on with Ippudo. Typically pork buns, your favorite ramen with pork belly, and that thousand layered cake.

    55555 by Lynh N.

  • Michelle W.Akamaru Modern is one of the best dishes in the city. Go by yourself to recharge, and skip the long wait as the waitstaff will place you wherever there is an opening

    55555 by Michelle W.

  • Elizabeth L.Everything was awesome. Servers are very on point. The host and hostess are wonderful. Tip them well people! (:

    55555 by Elizabeth L.

  • Melissa C.trick to not waiting: go at 11:30am for an early lunch.

    33333 by Melissa C.

  • HelenGo after 10 pm on a weeknight to avoid the lines.

    33333 by Helen

  • Rebecca S.Best place to go for lunch during the week when dining solo! Get the Akamaru Modern and iced green tea. The. Best!

    55555 by Rebecca S.

  • Brad P.the akumaru modern is way too greasy/느끼해. Opt for something like kakara(?) The spicy one

    55555 by Brad P.

  • jon n.Try the Akamaru Modern - as anyone else who has eaten this would say...it was an awesome bowl of ramen...no if, ands, or buts about it (via @Foodspotting)

    55555 by jon n.

  • Ifutbol Agents (.Good Ramen. Spicy and sweet

    55555 by Ifutbol Agents (.

  • Abraham A.Pork buns, pork buns, PORK BUNS!!!!!!

    55555 by Abraham A.

  • Marcos M.They call you to be here in 5min because your table is ready then make you wait a half hour... Other than that the noodles and pork buns are good but Momofukus pork buns are better.

    33333 by Marcos M.

  • Michael U.Guard your napkin, because the servers will steal it at any and all opportunities.

    22222 by Michael U.

  • Amanda K.Went around 11:30am and we barely got in! Delicious ramen and incredibly friendly service. Points for playing Daft Punk the entire time we were there.

    55555 by Amanda K.

  • Carlos S.Sensational - cannot recommend strongly enough. On par with the best ramen places in Japan

    55555 by Carlos S.

  • Jen L. 👓Still the best. Worth the ludicrous wait. (Just pop around the corner for a drink at Black & White.) Warning: don't over-do it on starters bc you cannot take home items you're unable to eat!

    33333 by Jen L. 👓

  • Alissa W.Pork buns or bust

    55555 by Alissa W.

  • Time Out New YorkIppudo was brought to NYC by Shigemi Kawahara, who is known as "the Ramen King" in Japan; his rich, cloudy tonkotsu broths draw the longest lines the city's ramen-ya, and they're well worth the wait.

    55555 by Time Out New York

  • Patrick McKowenThe pork buns are insanely good.

    55555 by Patrick McKowen

  • Mike C.Try the Gindara Saikyo Yaki - Grilled black cod with miso
