Good Inexpensive Asian Lunch in Times Square?

I am seeing a 2 pm matinee and looking for a good asian lunch place near the theatre. I don't want Ruby Foos but something like a noodle soup, bento box, or something like that.

  1. Sapporo has decent (reportedly authentic) noodle soups. I thought the broth was thin and not that interesting last I tried, but lots of people love it. It's a bit of a tight squeeze to eat at the restaurant.

    I also think Onigashima is tasty, but a few Japanese people have dissed it on this board, so I try to keep my enthusiasm under wraps. Plenty of room to sit.

    Wu Liang Ye is decent for Szechuan.

    1. Hing Won on 48th betw 5th and 6th for takeout chinese/noodle soups.
