I grab a rice or rice noodle bowl on my way home often here. It is fast, the food is fresh and there are always decent meat choices and toppings, including very good tofu and (limited but seasonal) veggies, should you be of that desire....More

I fell in love with Shophouse years ago. The first location opened in Dupont Circle and every time I go back to DC I have to get some. The rice bowl is fantastic. I typically get it with 1/2 meatballs, which are incredible, 1/2 chicken,...More

The food itself is OK and more or less good value for money in the Dupont Circle area. The staff has difficulty understanding orders and was totally confounded when given 20 dollar 20 cents when the amount to pay was 9 dollar 18 cents!

I had saw this place recommended in several places. So I gave it a try. I was disappointed. Service was lackluster. I got the vegan bowl. It was just awful. Nothing redeeming about it. Smell was ughh and I couldn't eat it. Sadly, I had...More

Purchased a rice bowl here. It had the same items to get in the bowl as the other stores do. The counter staff was not friendly nor helpful.

I went on a lunch hour while visiting the DC area. The line was at the door, but I had heard it went quick and it was about a 5 minute wait. They know how to move you along. It helped that I looked at...More
