Really good Ramen
Best ramen in DC. Several vegetarian options with actual vegetarian broth!
Terrible location with little parking. Staff isn't too friendly. Could invest more into furnishings. Unfortunately don't see a long run for this place.
Veggie options ! Go vegan with the miso broth ! :-)
Best Japanese ramen in dc area.
bakudan miso ramen w extra egg and pork, trust me
LOVED the miso ramen, with an extra side of noodles. Fantastic takeout.
I had the "stamina" special ramen and it was painfully salty. Will not be going back
Bakudan tonshio ramen with egg
This place is amazing. Must go with the Shoyu Ramen: soy sauce flavored soup made with Tonkotsu broth, topped with roast pork, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, scallions, onion and ground pork.
Cash only but they don't tell you until you sit down and see a menu. Ridiculous for anyplace to be cash only this day and age unless they have something to hide. I walked out.
Don't bother with the menu unless you want classic ramen. Otherwise, check the chalkboard specials on the wall.
Cash Only and limited parking so come prepared
Miso ramen, extra noodle, add an egg.
This isn't the Ramen that you lived on in college. Ren's serves fresh noodles with an assortment of flavor. Read more: http://www.cheapism.com/p/cheap-washington-dc-restaurants.mhtml#ixzz2kY8dhDqY
Hate this place. Car got towed because management doesn't get along with neighbor. Found hair in food. Waitress with glasses has a bad attitude and was very rude. Overall terrible experience.
New special menu for Fall 2013: Sukiyaki-Men!
Close every Tuesday on the 2nd and 3rd week of the month.
Get the corn in your miso broth. So good.
Be sure waitress repeats order so meal experience arrives as expected. Food was tasty today and hits the mark. Service was hit-or-miss.
the spicy miso/tonshio ramen with 3 chili pepper symbols is not spicy at all so ask for extra spicy
Impressive Ramen place. Don't pass on the gyoza.
Delicious. Stamina wasn't spicy enough... going bakudan next time.
The tiny quarters can be a wait, but it's worth your time to grab a bowl at Ren's Ramen. Don't feel like waiting? Ruan Thai in the same shopping center's a solid bet for Thai.[Eater 38 Member]
Super delicious and authentic
Try the Tonshio Ramen - Added a soft boiled egg.
Ask for "light" shio/salt ramen!
Walking here from the metro on a cold, windy day makes the ramen even more satisfying.
If the stamina ramen is on the specials board, get it poached egg, garlic in the broth ... eyes-rolling-in-the-back-of-your-head good!
Try the tsukemen for something different.
Try the Tonshio Ramen - Love this. Just like ramen I used to get when I lived in Japan. Four #noms out of four.
Best noodles in DC. You hear me Wagamama? Get your shit together.
Great noodles, terrible parking.
A little on the salty side, but not bad.
Pork belly in your ramen
Miso is the standout, a complex broth whose balance of saltiness, sweetness, and richness compels you to keep slurping. The noodles have the pleasantly chewy texture of all good pasta.
Best ramen since I left Japan. Get the tonshio ramen with egg, wakame seaweed, and char siu. Wonderful stuff.
Try the Tonshio Ramen And Gyoza - Best ramen since I left Japan. Five noms out of five. (Added wakame seaweed, char siu, and egg to my ramen.)
Try the Bakudan! Im pretty sure it translates to "spicy soup death". Soooooooo gooooooood!
Add a boiled egg!
** stars in Tom Sietsema's Fall Dining Guide 2011. (Tom recommends the "piping-hot miso-flavored feast wrought from wiry yellow noodles imported from Sapporo.") http://wapo.st/pALURb
Come early on weekend - it gets packed after 12 pm
Good (not great) but pricey Ramen in a dodgy neighborhood. Meat selection limited to Pork. I don't understand the hype!
You have to add the egg and fatty pork to the ramen for extra charge, but it's worth it. The soup is really oily though.
Get the fatty pork and egg in your soup, it's delicious.
Best Ramen in DC metro area!
