We didn't know what to expect, as my wife and I had never been to a Ramen place:we were very pleased with our choice, which was recommended by our Air BnB hosts, and from a food quality standpoint, Sakuramen deserves its high rating on TA.

Went for lunch today, after hearing from friend last night. For people who are less familiar with ramen and simply for the fact to have such a choice in more accessible area, certainly appreciate the nice efforts. However, Sakuramen is not a place you want...More

If you like ramen or want to try it this is the place. Lots of selections for the basic broth and then many add-ons. The kimchi added lots of spice.

After eating the ramens and gyoza in this restaurant, as fan of Japanese food, we were disappointed because they were not authentic at all. After dîner at this restaurant we had a stomach ache. Don’t believe the rate of stars, it’s a really bad restaurant.

So so good. Many of my friends had independently recommended it, so I had to try it. And I was not disappointed. It is a small place hidden in a busy street in Adams Morgan..and it is probably the best ramen in DC. The ramen...More

Delicious food i must admit. Had pork buns and their traditional ramen in chicken broth. Love that they have big portions when it comes to ramen. Doesn’t have wifi tho’ so it’s a minus for tourists (minus 1 point)

We don't have a separate gluten free menu, but we are happy to customize any bowl and minimize gluten content by substituting with rice and avoiding soy marinated toppings. Sorry for any inconvenience.

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 ~
