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 ~

Noodle lovers can customize their soup bowls at this basement-level spot with a communal table.- Google
"Not as many toppings for the price at least for the spicy miso ramen."
"My favorite would have to be the chashu pork steam buns followed by the gyoza."

Best Ramen in DC. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise. Forget the hype at other spots, SakuRamen is the real deal. Their spicy scale is no joke either. Level 10 will melt your face but the soup is so delicious you won't be able to stop. Consider yourself warned.

The food was phenomenal but the waiting area is practically non-existent and gets full pretty easily. I wish there was more space to accommodate all the people. The staff is pretty quick though, so it balances out. They are very attentive. Kind of a hidden gem if you aren't from the area.

Wow. I thought Toki Underground was the best ramen in DC, but I was wrong. Sakuramen takes the cake! Sakuramen is in the basement of one of the row houses on the main strip in Adams Morgan. You walk in and there's one long community table that would be typical in Japan and around 10-12 smaller tables for two. Right away we were seated and the server asked for our order (They obviously are trying to get people in and out due to the popularity of this place, but I never felt rushed at all). My wife and I ordered the bulgogi buns for an appetizer. The bulgogi was as good as any I've had in Korea and it comes on these amazing buns that look like a thick tortilla. One order includes two buns so it's perfect for two! My wife and I ordered two very different ramens but both were amazing. My wife lives spicy and ordered the Spicy Miso. If you can't handle spice like me, stay away because it is legit spicy. I ordered the Tonkotsu Mild. I love meat and love non-spicy foods and this was the perfect meal for me. To top it off at the end, we ordered mochi. The texture is very different from the ones from Trader Joe's but they come on a cool plate with fruit on it and a chocolate cookie stick. You must go here! Best ramen in DC hands down!

Great date night place! Their ramen is always hot delicious and they can make you dish as spicy as you want. Just know that anything above level 5 spicy gets really hot.. i love really spicy food and i stick to 7or8 because any hotter would be uncomfortable. Several of my friends have tried 7 and barely eat their food. Spicy aside, everything you get here is great and the service is great too.

Definitely crowded. But the Ramen was better than what I had at the Tokyo Airport. A little expensive as well, especially for Adams Morgan, but worth every penny.

The DC ramen is the best ramen I've ever had. Add some pork, it's totally worth it. The cheese is so creamy, you have to keep that too. The staff was super friendly. I will come here every time I'm in town. Good to the last drop.

Cozy and small place. Long waiting on busy days but the noodle soup is very delicious.
