It was a Friday and we waited about 25 mins for our table. One of the most memorable ramen I've eaten out of Japan. The gyoza was the best I've eaten (and I've had a lot). You won't regret choosing there for dinner. Short walk...More

I was worried about getting in because we'd tried to eat there previously and had turned down the long wait. This time we arrived a little after 5 on Saturday night and were 2nd in line -- it looked like most people that were in...More

WHAT a delicious place! The pork bun for me was just heaven! Crispy and juicy pork in a delicate steamed dough. The ramen is delicious and I was not surprised! It had to be considering the flavour profile of the buns! I love it! Must...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
