A menu designed to taste and share gives guests the freedom to explore the menu at their own pace, connecting over seductive flavors, festive craft cocktails and curated regional wines. The alluring interior matches the menu, with welcoming dining spaces that foster connections and spark conversation. Antique tapestries and rugs, twinkling lights and vibrantly patterned tile set the scene in the expansive dining room. Or, take a seat on the rooftop patio oasis, where lush greenery, plush cushions and the sky overhead evokes the feeling of being on a caravan to explore a distant land.

• Ramen • Shaw
Booked 14 times today
Haikan is our second Sapporo Ramen shop in DC after Daikaya. Haikan means, “pipe works” in Japanese, an ode to Atlantic Plumbing Building where we are located. At Haikan, we focused on creating the taste of ramen from the showa period, the golden age of ramen in Japan. There are over 1000 ramen shops in the city of Sapporo alone, and we are excited to share a completely new line-up of traditional Sapporo style ramen in DC. In addition to ramen, we are serving a playful selection of Japanese-inspired kozara (small plates) to share, or to start with, or to make a whole meal of by picking a few of them. Haikan's bar serves a collection of Japanese-inspired cocktails, and a concentrated selection of Japanese sake, shochu, beer, whisky, and more.

    We were late for a reservation but they were nice about it. Got a table right away. It is very noisy which we are ok with but someone who wants to have deep Convo on a Saturday night may not want to be here unless you get a booth. Food came out incredibly fast. it is sad we now have to pay for bread as an appetizer on the menu, but that seems to be life these days.

    We had a great booth straight back which was a little quieter than most of the room. Mike M was patient and did not rush us but was attentive and responsive to several dietary requests. The grilled salmon and salmon salad were both perfect. despite the crush of tourists, service was smooth from start to finish.

    My grandma and I arrived at the founding farmer at 6:30 and our reservation was at 6:30. We had to wait 30 minutes because the place was packed. Aside from that the food, ambience and service was amazing. Even though it was busy the waitress was kind and patient. We also didn’t have to wait long for our food to come and the bill was under $50.
