Haikan is great for a quick bite (and they're open a little later than some places in the neighborhood). The food is scrumptious -- pretty much anything you pick from the daily snack specials will be wonderful and the ramen is good to the last drop. It's a stylish space with kind service, but not quite comfortable enough to hang out long (and if we're being candid, it's a tiny bit pricey). But it's in a terrific location and we'll be back regularly.
Awesome ramen soup — highly recommended to ramen-lovers!
We always enjoy dining here. We actually came two nights in a row, cold weather makes it’s that much better. I love the smashed cucumbers and my boyfriend really enjoyed the pork belly appetizer. Ramen always on point and the team on the line are always very friendly as we enjoy sitting at the Ramen bar.
Always a guarantee! Great food, excellent service and good environment.
Great ramen place!
Only problem was that the staff didn’t know much about wine; served way too hot and any of them knew where it came from or what it tasted like. Too bad! But food was excellent!
We love ramen from Chaplin’s and would have said it’s the best ramen in the DMV. A friend told us Haikan was way better. So that’s what we planned for date night. Clean and bright was my first impression. They were busy and the service left a little to be desired. However, the ramen? Waaaaay better than Chaplin’s. Definitely the best ramen in the DMV. And, that pork belly appetizer was to die for!!! Already planning on going back.
I ate food and it was good
My date was hot af would hang with her again
The food was amazing as always. The service was a bit lax at first but picked up.
Great attentive waiter though we were talking so much he came a few times before we were ready. Seat by the range was exciting!
Read all reviews before coming here which convinced us to check this place. Will not come back.
Food was really good.
Our server was seated several times so she was running a lot. Seemed like she could manage tho.
Usually great food. Food wasn’t as great on NYE
Service was awful. We felt like an after thought and an annoyance to our server. Very unfortunate because the food is amazing.
Always an amazing experience with the food and service
Always food food and great experience!
Great location for delicious ramen and a vibrant atmosphere. Service is fast and the spicy shoyu is my absolute favorite!
Our absolute favorite shoyu ramen ever !! Could not say better things about this place.
Great service. Loved the food. A little loud but not complaining.
First time here, loved it. will definitely be back.
Great food but seated at bar set to bussing station. Servers kept bumping into me while eating which was frustrating.
As usual, the food and drinks were good. However, when my party arrived (5 minutes before our reservation time) we were told that they had *just* seated someone at our table. Even though we had a reservation. We ended up sitting outside in a covered tent area instead of indoors at the table we reserved, since it wasn't available.
Having lived in Japan, this is the best ramen I've found so far in the DMV. The apps are also quite good and creative.
The vegetarian ramen is outstanding. There were several decent vegetarian appetizers as well.
Lovely experience with quality service and food. Was a very enjoyable evening and I would return in the future
Haikan is my go to spot. The broth is better than any other ramen I’ve had in NYC or DC. I’m never disappointed and the menu is simple which I appreciate. Service is always excellent. Even when it’s busy I’m always able to get seated because the hostesses seem to really try to make everyone happy. So good. Crave it for days after eating there. Great service.... just want them to bring back the matcha lemonade!
Casual, chilled vibe with excellent food at affordable prices👍🏼 Love the ramen here...yum
Shoyu ramen is terrific
Really tasty Shoyu broth. Highly recommended. Always get the egg and chasu pork.
I usually get the AmazuVeggies which are slightly sweet and perfect texture. Never hard or mushy. I always get the vegetable Ramen soup with extra water to cut back on sodium. The Ramen is also perfect texture. The restaurant is always busy Friday evenings and you will most likely get seated at the counter unless you book well in advance. The servers are all very pleasant. I’m always satisfied. My only wish is that they would have more vegan options.
It was great! They have an option to have a half sized ramen bowl which was the perfect portion of food. More restaurants should have this option!
We absolutely love this place! My son always asks to go here on our mommy and son dates.
Delicious food. There was little variety of desserts
Great place. Really good service and recommendations from the server. I was sick and wanted a Hotty Toddy, they didn’t have one on the menu. They made me a green tea one that was amazing. Thanks for the great service guys!
Shared high top is always a gamble, just bad table mates
All other parts of the experience above average, def vividly again
I had the vegetarian ramen and it was delicious! I love their noodles! Chill ambiance with a little flare.
Food was delicious, but the service was exceptional. Our waiter, Carl, gave excellent recommendations for the ramen.
Absolutely delicious! Loved sitting at the counter
Upscale Ramen! Tasty selections.
