Wow. What a gem! Close to where I work and first time there. Fabulous ramen and decent price for midtown.

My family and I dined here during our most recent trip to NYC, and we were not disappointed. My husband and I both enjoyed the Shoyu Ramen and our daughter had plain ramen in broth which she also liked. We also had a serving of the Homemade Pork Gyoza (dumplings). They weren’t my favorite, but my husband enjoyed them. My daughter and I also shared an order of Tempura Shrimp Roll which we both thoroughly enjoyed! Great service here too! We had an overall great meal and would recommend it to others!

Located close towards central Times Square, Yama is a small but lively place with some great food. Great service, great food.

Quick service and fairly quiet setting. Good happy hour prices on food and drink. Ramen is good, and sushi is good. Nothing was fantastic but we had no complaints. We stopped in for a quick bite and a break from Times Square

Delicious meal! We enjoyed everything we had. I even put that we were celebrating a birthday and they brought out ice cream and sang! What a surprise. It was a great spot for ramen

Unfortunately, this was my first and last time coming to this place. The online hours say they close at 11pm. However, by 10pm I was being rushed to finish. The miso ramen was too salty and the help was giving me and my company nasty looks the whole night. Horrible. I would never recommend.

AMAZING!!! Relatively inexpensive but great quality!! Location is amazing. Eat great food than take a nice walk around Rockefeller center and stroll down 5th avenue. So glad we went! Perfect start to having a great night in NYC.

Very conveniently located to Radio City Music Hall, very nice staff that held our reservation since the concert went on longer than expected. Smaller than it looks in pictures but nice ambience and the food was great too.

It is a small space and the seats are not comfortable, but their Tonkatsu Ramen is delicious. Service was quick, but I could get the servers to keep me supplied with water. We were going to the theater so the quick service enabled us to eat leisurely without feeling rushed.

Food was very mediocre- the chicken in my ramen was very tough. Also watch out for how slippery it is inside.

I had the gyoza, pork bun and shoyu ramen with pork. Enjoyed my meal but it wasn’t anything special. The gyoza was too oily and arrived after the ramen. I liked the pork bun and would order it again. The ramen was ok but doesn’t stand out compared to other ramen available nearby. I appreciated the top ups of my hot green tea on that cold night.

My chirashi (assorted sashimi over a plate of rice) had fish scales in it. When I pointed it out to the waitress, her respomse was to laugh and say "fish have scales".

My friend ordered a glass of red wine and they brought out a white. Two waitresses came over insisted that she must have ordered the white and reluctantly replaced it.

Between lacking quality of food and poor service, would not recommend this place.

very disappointed. I LOVE Ramen and Sushi. Been to more than 50 places...this is a 2.0 at best! Really not good, not traditional and barely any sides to add! Broth not made by cooking 24 hrs! chicken and pork added AFTER and very dry! No veggies, noodles over cooked.
