The ramen was not impressed at all, and service was really poor. I strongly recoomend to you guys " Don't Go"
I put small tip on the table, and then clerk chased to me and said " I need more tips, normally 15%" What a beautiful situation, Bitch!! I can't understand why this such a nasty place got high ratings,

Cons: ask for too much tips, even though poor service,

Tucked between skyscrapers and Times Square is this mom/pop Japanese eatery. We went there 2X during our vacation just so we could thaw (it was hella cold outside!!) out over the ramen. I loved their mabo ramen and gyoza!!

Small restaurant with great ramen! Ramen is one of my all-time favorite meals and I like this place. I have been coming to this restaurant for years. I no longer live in NY, but make it a point to go each time I visit. It's usually crowded during peak times. Great place to go before a broadway show.

This was wonderful! The price was right and the food was great! I went there in February and I am still thinking about it to this day! I will go back to the city just for the Ramen!

The restaurant space is very small, and as a result it is always crowded. It is also somewhat difficult to find.
Service is decent here, but the food is good. For around $7 you can get a large bowl of ramen, or you can choose from a variety of dishes they also serve. The ramen is a good deal, but the prices for the other dishes can be on the higher end for the quality of the food they serve.
I have recommended this place to my friends in the past, and they have enjoyed it, as well.

Pros: tasty/ cheap/full of locals and regulars. right off of times square

Cons: more variety and have some sushi and cash only establishment

On a weekend getaway to NYC, and our last night in the city -- I was craving japanese food. We had been walking forever to find this place as we had passed by it a day before. It was located right next door to another japanese restaurant but had 1/2 the prices. The gyoza was good but the chicken katsu dish I had looked DISGUSTING! There was so much fat on the chicken. I complained to the management about it but they still wanted to charge me for it. I ended up ordering another plate of gyoza but my husband saw the kitchen staff making fun of me (he didn't tell me until later though). Eat next door...

I felt so bad for a fellow patron at this place that I doubt I'll return any time soon. A young man (twenty something) at the table next to mine paid the check and left a tip amount that evidently did not satisfy the waitress as she felt it necessary to declare in front of all of the patrons in the very small restaurant that it was inadequate. The man was bullied into forking over several dollars more. I know waiting tables is hard work but there's a right way and a wrong way. And I can't think of a worse way than what I witnessed at this classy joint.

I used to buy 3 cases each time I went home & would survive on this with fresh cut veggies in my dorm. Now that I am working, I come home to ramen every so often. I prefer this vs. udon or soba. Low class huh?! For value can't be beat, it's as tasty as "when I used to cook it up for my roommates!", a "great ramen cook I was. Now I let Sapporo do my ramen cooking! And the variety is a big plus. Lousy decor, feels like a greasy spoon out of old chinatown! but hey we're paying for quick tasty eats not the paint job!

Pros: ramen choices, inexpensive, not far from ofc

Cons: decor, lunch crowds

I've been eating lunch at Sapporo's for years. Their soups are delicious, hearty concoctions. Particularly satisfying on a cold winter day-- and they have a great cold summer soup during those months when the temperature rises. I've tried at least 5 different soups and never been disappointed. That said, it still pays to read the descriptions carefully, since some of the soups contain odd fishy ingredients that are tough on the average american palate. Disclaimer: I've never had anything except the soups and the gyoza, but friends who have dined with me seemed to enoy their non-soup meals, such as curry rice.
This is NOT a good place to bring a date, however. The ambiance leaves much to be desired: rickety furniture, overly-speedy service, and rather ratty looking decor all contribute to the correct impression that this is a DIVE, and not a fine-dining experience.

This place is as authentic as the places in St. Mark's but without the ridiculous wait. Although it's known more for a lunch place, you can get the same dinner as the restaurants down in the East Village but without waiting an hour for a table.

It's ok. Try the butter soup. The wontons aren't bad.

Considering the location on 47th Street, the food here is pretty good and reasonably priced. Although Japanese nationals will find the ramen and other dishes pretty bland, this is one of the better Japanese "homestyle" restaurants around. For under 8$ near times square, there is little to complain about.

Not bad here in New York. Bad if served in Japan. If they serve same foods in Japan, they should close the restaurant in one year. Similar but different food with Japanese.

A great spot for a quick, tasty, and reasonbly priced lunch. Recommend the Ramen (noodle soup) dishes, and the curry rice dishes.

Only drawback, they do not accept credit cards.

I love Japanese ramen places since they're a quick and substantial way to do lunch during the work week...Sapporo definitely ranks up there for value for money, especially being in the midtown area. Great big bowls of ramen for $7, and delish gyoza (dumplings) for $3! Plus they're superfast, so you don't have to wait long when you're starving.

I used to like this place (5 plus yrs ago) but am truly disappointed with it now. Overpriced food for a dive. Got a noodle dish that was all soup and no substance. Although it still has an authentic Japanese flavor (I've eaten in Japan many times), I would not go back anymore because the quality and value are just not there anymore. At least the service is alway EXTREMELY efficient (faster than Mickey D's).

One of my favourite places in Times Square. The food is always perfect and a glass of plum wine goes wonderfully! This place always cheers me up and it's well-priced with some of the fastest service!

I come to this place often, and I have to say I get my money's worth! Their Ramen Soups are awesome! You get these big bowls of soup for like $7.

This midtown ramen joint is bustling during lunch when hordes of workers come for the authentic ramen and delicious gyoza.
