This restaurant was in the 2017 Washingtonian 100 best list so have been wanting to try it for a while. Came here early for Sunday brunch as we didn't make a reservation. Turned out it wasn't that busy so were seated right away. The dining...More

My niece treated me to a fun night at Kyirisan for my birthday. The dishes are meant to be shared just like tapas but with a much more generous portion. Between the 2 of us we ordered the Creme Fraiche Wings, Duck Confit, Mirin Glazed...More

Kyirisan is a great new restaurant addition to the Shaw neighborhood. The food and atmosphere is good. The food is good.

I live in the neighborhood, but not heard of it until recently, so on a whim, with my son visiting from New York, we decided to give it a try... We lucked out, as I believe they had just opened the outdoor patio after a...More

Ok. First of all ask for Richard ,waiter that is over the top. His suggestion of ordering drink " climate change is real" was spot on. I wanted vodka instead of gin but he suggested I try it and he was so right! The duck...More

Favorite place in DC. Fusion Chinese/French. The food and drinks were all unique takes (and I usually am skeptical of fusion, which is hard to do well). One of the servers, Rich, also really contributed to the entire ambiance of my meals (been there twice)...More
