I'm no expert on Sapporo style ramen, but wow was the food at Haikan incredible. The noodles were cooked to perfection and the broth was robust with flavor. Pro tip - order the veggie ramen with a veggie bomb and add ground pork. Our table had a few of the small plates as well. You've got to get the crab rangoons and the pig ears. So good!!!
Service was excellent.
Always consistently good food - prepared quickly. Good service. Nice to keep water pitchers on tables.
My Dad and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the Staff was so kind and considerate!
Great HH and Rose
I highly recommend Haikan. The food is original, fresh, flavorful and delicious! The beverages are great too. Haikan is a good place to go before or after seeing a movie at the theater nextdoor.
Wow, where do I start? The Hostess was nice but everything went downhill from there. From cold staff and getting the order wrong. This place used to be so good but it has taken a turn for the worst. My food was wrong and then the replacement was not that hot. Also, the table was dirty. Definitely will not go back.
The food was amazing! I got the vegetarian bowl, it was really really good. I also recommend the curry fries!! The food came out super fast and the service was very attentive. I’ll definitely be back.
Great ramen and appetizers/drinks but the service was awful! We weren’t too upset because it was a nice night and we were sat outside, but the service was incredibly slow.
Good Ramen in a great location. All the food was very hot and very fast. The drinks were unique and delicious. Great spot to grab dinner before a show at the 9:30 club. My party ordered a number of things and they were all really good.
I'll be going back soon.
Delicioso! Awesome ramen
We always enjoy, Haikan. The food and service are is dependably good. We had frozen Moscow Mules at one time, which were excellent. When are those going to be offered again? This latest visit was for my husband's and my anniversary and, once again, we were well taken care of.
Excellent food and drinks. Noise level is a little loud when the place is full on a Friday night, though I've been here on other nights during the week and it's not as loud and easier to catch up with friends then.
Went here for dinner during restaurant week to try their ramen flight. The food was delicious but the portion size was rather large for a "flight" where we could barely try the third bowl before getting it packed up to go.
Wish the veggie ramen had more white corn.
They had one server.
Most amazing Ramen evvvvvvvveeeerrrrr and great place staff is great I have already been 4 time in 3 months lol
Hands down the best Ramen I've had in DC. The Shio in particular is our favorite. The appetizers and cocktails are also reliably tasty.
Food was mediocre, wish there was more flavor and options. Hot A/C in the environment did not make it comfortable to eat in.
We were a huge group and I can’t say enough about how well Haikan accommodated us and were friendly at that!
This place is awesome! I would highly recommended it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I love the modern sleek ambiance. The staff was friendly. We can wait to go back.
The Shoyu Ramen was amazing. The broth was deep and full of flavor. The toppings complimented the broth really well. One of the best ramen spots in DC! The Crab Ragoon as an appetizer was delicious as well. The ambiance of the location was bustling, and a perfect spot to eat with friends.
It was fine. Nothing spectacular and although I made this reservation months ago, they tried to tell me for 20 minutes I didn’t have one - and actually it was that they were looking at the wrong date. The manager handled it but it was unnecessarily stressful.
We cannot say enough good about Haikan, which has been one of our favorites for the last year or two. The ramen is the best we've had in DC (and we've tried a number of the top places), the service is great, and a dinner for a family of 3 does not break the bank. We also love the energetic, youthful, accepting vibe -- although it trends towards a 20/30-something clientele, we're in our late 40s and never feel out of place. A nice bonus is the terrace when the weather is nice. A must try!
The food was delicious. We were seated right away, and the service was top notch. I love ramen, and look forward to my return!
I went with some friends and got there before our reservation time. The people were so nice and seated us then so we didn’t have to wait. The service was great and everyone was very friendly. The food was amazing and I would recommend this to all of my friends
They got our order wrong twice and ended up bringing out two of the same order and charging us for it. The atmosphere is nice and the food is ok but nothing impressive.
Love this place- great ramen
My order- Spicy shoyu w/spice bomb and egg
I usually get the pork belly or poutine- decided to go with the wings.
Thought my wings Appetizer was underwhelming, but they were pretty cheap so it didn’t affect my meal.
I’ve been to Haikan several times, and it’s always been an overall great experience! Yummy food, great service and a convenient location.
Great food, friendly waitstaff. And here are some extra characters for my review.
Such a great place! When they open the wall to the outside it is just so nice to have a drink and some ramen! Plus their happy hour is awesome
Loved the inside-outside feel of this place. Appetizer portions are small but food was amazing! Highly recommend
Great ramen! I had the Shoyu and my partner had the spicy shoyu. The flavor profiles of the broth were complex and rich; highlight of the dish. The noodles were soft and chewy. As an appetizer we split the fried calamari, which was OK, and the portion size was small. Great happy hour drink specials for those looking for a refereshing beverage on a hot summer day without breaking the bank! I would recommend! However I prefer the company's other two ramen locations to Haikan.
Best ramen I've had in DC! And at a great price / portion size. I was getting really tired of paying too much money for a bowl of ramen I could never finish. The small bowl was perfect.
Great fun food, very casual, fun server
Appetizer portions were really small for sharing. Alcohol was semi-decent. Shoyu ramen was good.
Great time with friends. Service was outstanding and patient with first-timers even on a Friday night. Highly recommended
The shoyu ramen is absolutely amazing and I very much enjoyed the Regina George cocktail. Service was great. All around an enjoyable experience
The ramen is delicious. Vegetarian options are extremely limited.
I’m not a vegetarian, but Haikan’s vegetarian ramen is just so good that it’s one of my favorite restaurants in DC!
