The restaurant is very small but cosy. The food was absolutely delicious. We tried Oden (which is quite hard to find in NYC), several bowls of ramen & some appetizers, and they were all extremely delicious. Also, the pork broth was heavenly.

This is a small restaurant, cozy enough for a small gathering with friends. It was a great place to have some hot ramen amidst the cold winter.

Dropped in for a quick afternoon lunch break after pounding the galleries at MoMA. Service was very quick if not especially welcoming. Selected menchanko with pork belly rice side, food was very good and hot. Recommended with quick noodle lunch. $31 for lunch for two.

For some reason, I am always drawn back to Menchanko-Tei when I visit New York. It is very close to MOMA so after a morning of museum it is a great place for lunch. And I only seem to go in the winter because the...More
