Great and tasty ramen. The place is quite low key but service is good, choice, quality is at it's best and prices very reasonable

ISE is a small place, tucked upstairs from the hustle and bustle. ISE seems to specialize in ramen and domburi dishes. Nice for a quick and filling meal. I had the domburi, and it was nicely prepared. Service is excellent, atmosphere is cozy and warm.

There are a lot of places to grab a good bowl of ramen in NYC now. But this place delivered simple truly authentic Japanese. The greeting and farewells, the choices of Japanese brand drinks, the simple broth options. Good flavor without being flashy. The only...More
