Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is a gem. It’s small but totally organized and set up to serve you quickly and get you on your way. But meantime the menu is great. So much to choose from and all of it delicious. Staff are really friendly and don’t...rush you at all…it’s the people outside at peak hours waiting to get in that make you want to let them have a seat.More

They served me meat that’s already sour and smelled bad 😳 I didn’t even get a sorry after calling their attention. They even told me it’s sour because of the sauce on top. Are you kidding me? I was the one who tasted their food...& they didn't trust what I said. Anyway, I still gave a generous tip though, but they didn’t even bother to thank me, even while I was on my way out. They were talking in a different language and were laughing and looking at me after I tipped. Lol. They also cleaned my table immediately before I even asked for the bill. Wth? Are people really this disrespectful these days? First time in NYC and unfortunately, I happened to be at this restaurant with these kind of people. smh. Boo customer serviceMore

They have ramen, curry, don bowls. They have miso and soy flavored ramen. I had a miso ramen and it was one of the best I have ever had. Also tried the bun and fried chicken appetizers, which are both good. Very small restaurant. Service...was good. I’ll be back. Don’t go here please.More

Little restaurant with a special touch, very close to the WTC. Few dishes in the menu, but all of them look good and special. I actually tried three and none of them were ramen. So there’s more than what the name suggests

Often I find too much rice at the end of my curry. Kuu Ramen has found the golden ratio where I need not and wanted no more, it was a perfect ratio. Everything was flavorful and cooked to a consistent texture. Lack of large seating...is the only downside but the service speed makes up for their turn rate. Definitely will be back when finding myself in the neighborhood again!More

Omg; great, great Ramen. The fried chicken is also great. We loved it. Small place, a little wait but that Ramen was superb. One thing for some people: the health rating that it is posted at all restaurants in NYC was a “B”

Visited this place for dinner because it was just beside our hotel, the food was delicious and the staff friendly. The place is very small so I imagine it might be likely not to find a free table. I also got takoyaki as takeaway another...night and they were very quick in getting that ready. Definitely recommend this place!More

One of the best Ramens that we have tried, so much so that we visited two days in a row. Tried the spicy Kuu ramen, Shoyo and tofu. If you love ramen this would be the place to go in NYC 🍜

We were hungry for some ramen and read the reviews on Yelp. Unfortunately, the reviewers on Yelp do not know good Ramen as this was bad. The place was packed and we expected good food. Not finding a table or wanting to wait outside, we...ordered takeout. Our order was for veggie and Okinawa ramen. The results were 4 bowls. Two for the broth and two for what looked like noodles you would get in a kit from a grocery store! The veggie was inedible as the broth was so bland and the noodles were garbage. The Okinawa broth was a little better, but the on small piece of chicken did not result in much.More

If I had put what a time is it as my title someone may say time to get a watch but the truth is I am a broke college student who already owns a watch!! Because of this I say it is a time to...get a ramen but then I realize I’m not Italian but I sound like I am!! I went here for lunch today with my ramen pal who I call Willie boy Nelson in honor of the country singer and plant cultivator!! We got some gyozas with pork and also ramen with pork and pork buns!! We happen to be very strict vegetarians so the meal wasn’t good for us!! I am obviously joking because meat is the OG thing in this life!! I am going to be critical for the first time in my TripAdvisor existence and say that the pork in the ramen wasn’t really tender and was too chewy and also the noodles didn’t really hold on to the broth!! It still filled my heart with joy and the egg was very runny!! I also got a melon ramune which goes very well with ramen!!More

The best ramen i had outside from japan! Its a small restaurant with limited seats. You'll have to wait to be seated, but the waiting time is worth it 1000 times! The food is just excellent <3
