We’re just a couple guys who are passionate about ramen, which we feel is the ultimate comfort food, inspiring childhood memories of sharing with family and friends.  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 ~

"The tonkatsu red was great, as were the spicy pork buns."

Very flavorful, delicious, authentic Ramen at a pretty good price ($11-$13). We had the sakuramen (vegetable) and gojiramen (traditional pork soy sauce), and both were fantastic. Try the ginger tea, too (they make it with fresh grated ginger). The only drawback is how crowded it is, because it's a tiny city location.

Great broth and tasty ramen. Be careful, the spicy scale can get really spicy, but other than that the food was great.

Decent go-to ramen shop in the heart of Adams Morgan. Very crowded on weekends and on some weeknights, but turns over fairly quickly. The ramen is not on the level of Toki Underground, but the standards are still a very good go-to when in the mood for ramen. The service is quick and to the point.

Decent ramen place but not as good as Daikaya or Toki Underground.

Decent ramen, but I don't really like the type of noodles they used. I think it's over rated here. I definitely had better ramen in other places.

What's the fuss about? Zero ambiance in a subterranean space. Crowded. No liquor license. Distracted service. Bland and boring dishes. Is it because it's cheap? For interns only.

I came here with my friends a few weeks ago and with all the good reviews I was getting super excited! Unfortunately I was really disappointment and so were my friends. First off, we got there and it was crowded. I will give them props as we were able to put our name and the list and the guys said he would call us when a table was free. We were able to walk around a bit before getting seated. So much better than waiting in one place and watching other people eat. I got the original TONKOTSU Red, because when you get ramen, you have to get pork. Also you can choose the level of spicy. I choose a 5 and it was pretty hot. I can usually tolerate spicy, but 5 was a good level, just above saracha. If you can make a good Tonkostu, you can rock the other ones. The pork was actually very tasty and tender which I really enjoyed. BUT what makes a great ramen for me is the broth. I feel the broth tasted super watered down and I missed the flavor all together. I thought perhaps it was just my broth, so I tried the spicy miso and it was watered down as well. A great broth to me is similar to Daikakuya in Los angeles where you can taste the pork in the broth. I won't be coming back here unless I get super desperate.

Not sure how you can leave a bad review of Sakuramen. Yes it can get crowded, but the staff is super friendly and I have really enjoyed every bowl of ramen I've eaten there
