This tiny dive-y looking ramen shop on the ground floor is insanely popular for a reason. Very credible ramen variations; noodles, broths and toppings all excellent for outside Japan. The spicy miso has a slow burn somewhat like sichuan numbing pepper. You will not want,...More

I had dinner by myself and the wait was 50 minutes (maybe also because there was a hockey game of the Washington Capitals just across the street). Place is crowded and packed, Japanese chefs cooking. I had the light Miso Ramen - which were perfectly...More

This is good ramen. Not great but good. I heard this was authentic Japanese ramen but it is not. Kind of reminds me of what I make at home but amped up. Great atmosphere. Good service. Very social and busy. Be prepared to wait.

Stopped in for a late lunch last week. Ordered the Shoyu Ramen and took the advice of my server on adding corn, butter and bamboo shoot. It came garnished with a seaweed leaf, and it was absolutely delicious. One of the best ramen I have...More

For DC this is the best ramen I've had so far, compared to a handful of other ramen restaurants I've tried. (Tops in Ivan Ramen in NY, btw.) We had the vegetable ramen, and really enjoyed it. The veggies were cooked just right, not too...More
