Chaplin's Restaurant & Bar is a 1930's style Japanese Ramen House and cocktail bar. Chaplin's Executive Chef and Partner, Myo Htun, is originally from Burma, but was cooking ramen in Japan at a young age. Myo received a blessing from his mentor in Japan after nearly 30 years of cooking in Japan, to come to America and continue to showcase his authentic Ramen and traditional Japanese cuisine. Chaplin's Restaurant demonstrates the aesthetic of a bustling ramen house in Japan in the 1930's silent film era. There is also a large outdoor dining area that is dog friendly. Chaplin's is located in the heart of the Historic Shaw neighborhood. And it is open until last call 7 days a week. Chaplin's received a Plate certification in the Michelin Guide in 2020. And it is located steps from the convention center and popular Logan Circle, 14th street and City Market.

    While our hostess and server were pleasant, it took a LONG time to receive our food. Although I do understand that it may have been a holiday weekend (Mother's Day), we were one of the first people in the restaurant. Although the food was tasty, t was not our best experience and we will not be returning anytime soon!

    We enjoyed our date night, the ramen was not top notch as we hoped. The ramen needed to be cooked just a few minutes more. The service was fantastic.

    Everything was great until we got kicked out... We had a reservation, and upon arriving they told us the table was needed at 8, and then kicked us out at 7:20... RIGHT after we signed the checks. We honestly felt rushed the entire time. Definitely didn't appreciate it and left a sour taste. Also, this was my second time here and both times the waiter/waitress forgot parts of my order and the utensils and/or glassware was dirty. Unfortunate experiences but the food was pretty good.

    Chaplin is now our group's go-to restaurant whenever we are in DC for business. Love, love, love! the food is fantastic and drinks are delicious. Prices are extremely reasonable for DC.
