  • Totto's special spicy sauce is not lip-singeing, but the steaming broth coats your mouth and throat in chili, creating a slow burn that builds up as you work your way through the bowl.
  • This spot's chicken-or-pork ramen's made with Japan-sourced ingredients including a secret "spicy oil" called Rayu, traditionally used to kick up cuts of M Bison.
  • don't make the same mistake i did, closed for lunch on the weekends
  • At this small organic noodle-soup joint there are three types of noodles, each paired with a different broth: miso, paitan (creamy chicken) and shoyu (soy-sauce based).
  • Very Impolite waiters! I left tips (10%), but he returned and said that I must leave more, at least 20%, brrrrrr((
  • Voted best ramen in Midtown Lunch's 2011 Reader's Poll.
  • Don't be surprised if you have to wait at this Japanese ramen restaurant, but it will be worth it! Go for the Totto Miso Ramen or if you need a little kick, the Totto Spicy Ramen.
  • NY. Looking for chicken broth based ramen? You found the spot. The miso and spicy ramen are perfection. Wonderfully flavored broth and delicious al dente ramen noodles. The wait is worth it.
  • Any ramen. My favorite ramen in NYC.
  • Eat as much as you can. They don't allow you to get a to go bag!
  • Brush up on your Japanese and bring your appetite! The ramen is amazing but don't forget about the awesome pork buns.
  • The miso ramen is the best ramen I've had in North America. The consistency of the noodles, the right balance with the fat in the meat, the right atmosphere, and finally, the nutty kitchen staff!
  • Better ramen than Ippudo.
  • Put your name on the list hanging on the door. Try the chicken ramen!
  • The Spicy Bamboo Shoots are crazily hot! Try them at your own risk. Come for the Gaga inspired hair, 90s R&B, and 80s Nike Air!
  • Get the miso ramen with a side of spicy oil (can split between 2 people), and uni if it's on the menu.
  • The totto spicy ramen with pork was really good, could be spicier, but definitely full of flavor!
  • Put your name down and go around the corner to kahve. One column of names takes approx 30 min on Saturday afternoon
  • If you like spicy, get the spicy bamboo shoots rather than the sauce (that way you can still taste the flavor of the broth). And nigori sake is the best, it's what the chefs drink when you buy a round
  • Expect an hour long wait to be seated in this small Ramen shop but its so worth it. Get the Totto extra spicy ramen!
