    Impressive ramen, springy noodles with just the right chewy texture. Get the red tonkotsu and add an egg.

    Get the tonkatsu ramen. The Berkshire pork belly is top-notch.

    Frequently crowded, as it should be - you can't go wrong with their variety of rich ramen. Don't skip the pork buns!

    Absolutely in love with the Shoki Bowl

    Stephanie DeDecker · August 21
  • Daniel S.

    Come hungry and the spicy miso will hit the spot like nothing else, 7 on the heat scale is a really nice amount.

    Tonkotsu ramen is DELICIOUS but do NOT underestimate how hot it is!

    Mm those buns. The shoki ramen was full of delicious meat. But the buns? They stole the show for me.

    Don't anger Tony by swiping left.

    Spicy pork buns!!

  • DC Dining A.

    The Tonkotsu Red Ramen is absolutely fantastic, great pork broth made with Berkshire pork belly chashu, kikurage, menma, green onion, kuro mayo, and nori.

  • DC Dining A.

    Start your meal of right with the Spicy Pork Buns, really delicious and a great appetizer before ramen.

  • Roll C.

    That Shoki though.

    The house Sakuramen and spicy ramen are awesome, random/good 90s early 00s jams playing are a plus (imho).

  • Viaggiatrice

    The hot teas, both citron and ginger are so, so good. Loved the steamed buns. Ramen still not *quite* as good as Toki, but the other things make up for it.

    Delicious ramen, good service though a little snug inside. You'll sit by strangers but a wonderful experience.

    Great ramen. The gojiramen is, unintuitively, better than the tonkatsu ramen.

    Chris Lee · January 3
  • Sarah Anne

    Incredible!! Expect to wait to be seated, but the turnaround is generally fast. The gold standard for ramen.

    Sarah Anne · January 1
  • Rohaina

    This is the best ramen spot in DC. Incredible customer service & delicious ramen. Make sure to get the bulgogi steamed buns while you hungrily wait for your steaming bowl of ramen.

    Charsu buns were yummy and very good but the tonkatsu ramen was disappointingly bland

    Sam H · December 21, 2014
  • Andrew K.

    Their ramen is incredible and their spicy pork buns are as well. The service is very fast, the prices are fair, and the staff are very nice. I definitely recommend it.

    Great ramen, but long waits. Smaller group the easier to get in.

    Chashu (pork belly) buns are a must here!! Gojiramen was simple and delicious.

    Hands down, best ramen in DC. The other places may have the atmosphere, but nothing beats the broth here.

    The broth for the spicy miso ramen is complex and delicious. The service here is great. They remember everyone/everything!

    Hillary Hartley · August 9, 2014
  • Aman C.

    The spicy pork buns aren't very spicy yet a 5 on the 1-10 scale for the ramen was a little bit too spicy for me.

    Aman C · August 5, 2014

    Spice rating is 1 - 10, but 3 is medium... Weird math!
