Customer Reviews

  • Stephanie Rivkin

    Still an East Village well-kept secret - rather than waiting in line for Ippudo, Momofuku, or Minca, head to Rai Rai Ken. Their dinner special includes everything you could possibly want for $17, and has quickly become a favorite spot of ours. As par...

  • Jason Westerkon

    My top ramen spot in the East Village. Always quick friendly service, and the prices are just right. Great happy hour specials too. Grab a cold draft beer and a hot soup and enjoy.

  • Ermolay Romanov

    Authentically Japanese noodle, rice, and dumpling joint, with a crowd speaking volumes about the ongoing neighbourhood gentrification... and finals. Columbia and City College students alike are seldom regulars. We guess they order delivery a lot.
