The ramen were delicious, service and prices were good. (I'm craving for some now.) I have tried the Shio Ramen, Curry Ramen and their summer special Hiyashi Chu-Ka. They were all yummy but my favorite is the Curry Ramen. The Hiyashi

This place is on my top ramen in NYC list. The staff is incredibly friendly and they make a mean broth. I go whenever i am in the neighborhood. But definitely only come here if there are 2 of you. The bar seating makes it hard to have a conversation anyway.

It's a little tight but staying true to the noodle shops in Tokyo, it's fast, delicious and well priced. I recommend the miso ramen and the gyozas are a great starter. Rarely a line to get in, great spot to pop in and have get some yummy noodles

Pros: Well priced and always good

Cons: Slightly narrow

I strongly recommend this place. It's kinda like a Japanese fast food since you eat fast and don't hang out there because there is always a line outside. The food is delicious and cheap.
Try the Miso Ramen with Butter an Corn!!

Awesome noodle shop in E village... However it fits 12 people max? so, only go if there's 2 of you... and then expect to wait outside until they can shuffle the other 10 people around the bar until you can squeeze in.

A nice little restaurant with tasty noodles and great kimchi. It is a small place so it can be hard to get a seat, but it has a nice atmosphere so it's worth the wait.

Im a true ramen fanatic, have eaten at all the ramen shops here and in Japan. Maybe it was all the reviews but I was very disapointed. The noodles were good, the broth not so special. We tried one of each, and none of them blew us away. They were about as good as all the other ramen shops and even Japanese places that dont specialize in ramen. Pork appetizer was good and you could tell the dumplings were frozen from looking at the edges and how they are brittle. Overall average, I would come in for a bowl if you find a seat right away and were passing by but if you have to wait go down the block and go to any other Japanese place for ramen.

Pros: fast service, reminds you of a Japanese noodle house

Cons: not as great as others proclaim, didnt meet expectations

.

What's not to like? Cute little place. Less than $8 for a filling bowl of noodles (just the thing when you need to warm up, or just to fill your stomach) and not even $1 for a little side of takuwan, or a couple bucks for some kimchi. The shio ramen was a delicious, pale broth. I'm gonna go back and try the curry ramen.

Pros: Authentic cheap eats

Cons: Small space, wait at busy times

The wait can be annoying and the counter-style seating makes it not such a great choice for more than a few people. But, the food never lets me down!

This place is very narrow and tight, there is always a wait. But if you're lucky and you go at the right hours you can get a seat. I've tried all the noodles on the menu and the shio one is the best thus far. A quick eatery if you are very hungry and need something fast. If you're a frequent goer, you should get their business card which has the "buy 9 get one free ramen" offer in the back.

The noodles are tasty, the service is fast, and it's very cheap. A great place to go to grab dinner and spend about twenty minutes.

Cons: small, not much seating

This place has an authentic feel, look and service of a Japanese Noodle shop. Location is decent and is worth the short walk from wherever you are. The noodles are good, the broth better and there is even a dish for vegetarians (miso chicken, sans chicken), whereas most noodle shops will only have pork or seafood based soup. Low maintenance, low-fi, low key attitude of RaiRaiKen makes it a great place, the best noodles in town makes it a great noodle shop. Best in the city.

Very good, very fresh authentic ramen. The noodles are amazing, very eggy indeed! Can't beat the price. The space is pretty cozy and suggests a no-nonsense noodle shop. Only thing is, it's too far east! But then more people will discover this place and crowd it out.

i love this place, it's cozy, friendly, and it has a true japanese feel, the kind of place you would see on a side street in japan. the soup is delish, the noodles a perfect al dente. perfect for a cold winter night! be aware of other imitation places.

Unlike other places, their noodles are chewy (which I love) Their noodle bowls are very consistant no matter when or how often you go. My first impression of this place was, "how interesting (not so exicted) and i see whole apples floating in a gigantic pot!" -- apples give great auroma + flavors. I don't care what others say, i like this place for chewy noodlyes. Kimchi and dak-kwong(yellow radish) can be ordered for extra goodies.

This is definitely the best and most authentic ramen shop in NYC. Their no frills menu doesn't offer much more besides the ramen but you don't need anything else. Order a ramen, the gyoza and a beer and you are set for a good, fast and economical meal. I just wish they had more seats!

RaiRaiKen consistantly delivers delicious ramen soups, that are created right before your eyes. These bowls of ramen look almost like pieces of art, the way they are put together. These guys definitely put their heart into everything from the taste to presentation of their meals.
The best is the Chicken Miso ramen. I havent left the bar with any soup left in my bowl yet.

Rai Rai Ken on 10th Street in the East Village is fantastic. It's the equivalent of Japanese fast food. Dumplings, Noodle soups, small entrees make up the food, while it has beer, and a cool Blade Runner-like feel to it, that make it a neighborhood favorite. Open till 3Am and Bar sittiung only, this Cheap-Eat is among the best of its kind in the world.
