This restaurant was great. The place is small so get there early or make a reservation or plan to wait but it is worth it. The ramen is so amazing and the staff was very friendly.

This 2-level ramen bar in Adams Morgan serves the best noodles in the neighborhood. There is often a line to get in. They do not serve alcohol. We had kimchi, pork belly and roasted scallion buns, and spicy mushroom buns as appetizers. Yum. You can...More

We don't have a separate gluten free menu, but we are happy to customize any bowl and minimize gluten content by substituting with rice and avoiding soy marinated toppings. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Our sole focus is to create the best ramen on the planet, without using artificial flavorings of any kind, sourced from pure bone broth coupled with the freshest ingredients available. We do not favor any particular style or cultural influence when it comes to our ramen dishes. With an unbridled approach to culinary creativity, we strive to deliver a unique dining experience that highlights a fusion of diverse flavors from across the globe.From ramen houses in Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Seoul, to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, we are pleased to see that others love ramen as much as we do… and so we are especially proud to open our doors in Washington DC, in the heart of a city we love to call home.Thank you for the opportunity to serve. Humbly Yours…~ Jay & Jonathan ~
