Location is really cool with a NYC Subterranean approach. The food was also really good, some of the best Ramen I’ve had in DC. The service however was phenomenally slow and by the end of the meal we actually had to ask another service for our check because we couldn’t find ours.

Craving Japanese cuisine and decided to try this place out for the first time. Made a reservation and we where seated promptly without any wait. Water arrived within one minute and server right after. Ordered shrimp tempura rolls and pork gyoza to start. Both delicious. Diner companion ordered Tokyo ice tea and boy was it strong. Definitely taste the tequila. No watered down drink.
Each ordered the Filet mignon hibachi dinners. Steak cooked to perfection.
Overall diner and service was great and would highly recommend

Toryumon Japanese House is an exceptional spot that's hidden from plain sight. They offer a nice variety of Japanese Izakaya (small dishes), along with a great selection of ramen bowls and fresh sushi/sashimi dishes.

Their pork buns and bulgogi buns are some of the best that we've had in DC, and the broth of the Spicy Toryumon Ramen was definitely a grade above all other ramen places that we've been to.

The food was good but our experience would have even better if the people smiled there. The receptionist and server didn't smile at all and didn't give a good vibe. She didn't suggest items as we expected. She was having food while we were having food. We had to wait to order while she finished her food.

They did not have our reservation in their system despite me showing them the confirmation through open table. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated and they put us as the bar because there was so table still. Unacceptable

The happy hour was a great deal for the area, and the food was consistently good. I wish their beer selection were a little better, and the ambiance of having politics on the TVs was a little grating, but none of that got in the way of the food being very good.

Small restaurant located in basement of downtown office building. Simple but well decorated, cozy and casual atmosphere, contemporary style, with driftwood colored floors and tabletops. About two dozen two tops set up as twos and fours, a few high ones. Small bar and sushi counter in back with additional seating. Service ok, food so so - I had the tempura app and it was probably the worst tempura batter I ever had, stiff and chewy, veg pieces cut large and coarse and tasteless. Ramen ok, California roll quite well made. Happy hour beer good deal at $4. Seemed busy. Probably a better place for drinks with food as secondary,

The ambiance was fantastic. My ramen tasted so good and my friends were content with the signature fried rice. Loved how the steps looked when entering the restaurant. Very energetic and a great place to eat with friends on a night out!

The ramen broth was absolutely worth it. Pork was ok, service had us waiting quite a bit but to be fair it was packed. I made a reservation for 2 at 630 on Monday night and thank goodness for that. Great ambiance and I would certainly go back

Everything is good but our server serve the appetizers and food at the same time for my husband, when he was almost finished our food came. Basically he’s finished and waiting for us.

Afgaande op de recensies hier gereserveerd voor gezin met drie kinderen. Wat een SUPER restaurant!!! Qua sfeer is het niets bijzonders en je loopt er zo voorbij omdat het in een kelder zit en bijna niet zichtbaar is. Maar eenmaal binnen hebben we echt zoooooo heerlijk gegeten, dit staat in onze top drie van sushi in de wereld.
Bediening echt vriendelijk en hartelijk!!! Toppers!

We had a very friendly server named Terry. She recommended really great sushi for us. My friend and I highly enjoyed the sushi, ramen, and bulgogi. We would recommend for others to go. It’s casual dress, make a reservation, and joy some delish food

The food at Toryumon is exceptional. They have a good variety and the waitstaff can tailor some of the dishes on request. We found the food fresh and the wait staff attentive. The food is the biggest draw.
