after waiting for about 1.5 hour i was SOOOOOOOOOOOO disappointed. everything was uber salty. we thought maybe we ordered the wrong stuff so we ordered some more plates. still no good. paying the bill seemed just plain wrong as it was the worst food i've ever had. we actually didn't eat much. we went next door and had a panini.

I had a ramen with pork, it was aweful. The soup was so salty, and the noodle was so overcooked and had no chewiness. The worst ramen I've ever had. The service was rough. The waiter shook the bottle of cold sake before pouring it, and it made the sake look like soda. Very uncomfortable seating. Overpriced. There's no reason to go back to this restaurant.

Went here this past Saturday evening with my lady. The only available seats are at an empty bar or a communal table. I opt to wait the 20 minutes I was told for a table for two (no big deal). We are lured into the dungeon room in the back, it's full of standing people. After 25 minutes we begin to get a bit impatient. I go up to the front and politely ask the same hostess if she knew how much longer; she didn't know and directs me to wait in the back until she sends somebody. After a few minutes a women tells us it's going to be ANOTHER 20 minutes because they're waiting for people to get up. FINALLY, after 45 minutes of standing we are directed to the front where we are offered the SAME TWO SEATS at the bar. I think to myself you must be joking, and explained that we would have sat there 45 minutes ago if we wanted to. We are sent back to the dungeon to wait some more. We sneak out the back and think aloud "go Momofuku yourselves" as we make our way to Pommes Frites.

Not about noodle soup

You may play cute by making noodle soups trendy. If you don't know how to do the noodle soups right, however, the cuteness stops doing anything when noodle soup lovers won't go there for the noodle soup they really want -- not the cuteness of the restaurant.
