If your'e near Central Park South, you can't do better than this for fabulous authentic Japanese dining. Atmosphere is ordinary, but food and service is tops.

Old school Japanese ramen-ya. Not as flashy as Ippudo or Totto, but your more likely to get a seat and the Ramen is solid - tasty and satisfying. Get the pork shumai appetizer, they are delicious. Also an excellent tan-tan (as well as a nice...More

Staff were very friendly but for me my ramen was just ok. Big portion though. My wife liked hers. The fried chicken was delicious and the giozas were fantastic. The best we tasted so far.
