Came here tonight with the family!! Awesome food and awesome service!!! Only reason why I am only giving 4 stars is that one of the hostess was wearing a really really inappropriate "dress". It is a family place so I don't think, me being able to see right through the bottom of her dress was appropriate. Other than that, everything w ... read more

Friendly, efficient service.  It was a chilly day, so we were happy to get a table by the fireplace.  We started with edamame: basic but tasty. I *loved* the spicy miso ramen with chicken. The chicken was perfectly cooked - tender and a little crispy - and the broth was rich and flavorful.  As another reviewer noted, though, it wasn' ... read more

Good location and tons of seating - both inside and outside! The decorations make it look more high end of a sushi and ramen place. Parking may be a bit of a hassle though! We got lucky and got a spot right in the front though. The service was good, the owner came around and made sure everything was alright. I opted for the pork rame ... read more

Decent mid-priced meals
This used to be a fish restaurant, so the fish decor is still on the walls and ceiling. But the Japanese flavor is predominant. The one annoying thing is that the waiter didn't tell us that the lunch specials are only M-F until after we...More ... read more

I've been here twice before. The food is pretty good and the service is very sweet. It's never too busy either. I'm not a huge fan of seafood so I didn't try any real sushi (but the ones without raw fish were good), but the ramen is bomb! There are only three options for broth, but the broth is very flavorful and very light. The spic ... read more

I really like this place. The food is great, service is friendly and the prices and value are some of the best in Shirlington. My 5 year old loves miso soup and to share a ramen and this is one of her favorite restaurants necause the decor is really neat. She always comments on the great artwork like jellyfish lamps and metal fish ... read more

My Pork Ramen Bowl with Spicy Miso was nothing short of AMAZING! I am a new convert to Ramen Bowls. Loved how tasty and generous the pieces of pork were and they were so soft it melted in mouth. Rhiannon recommended the Salmon Love Roll which I also ordered and it was definitely a win! Great presentation with both items. Attentive an ... read more

I like the sushi and the Ramen here very much. The lunch specials and happy hour specials are good deals. Service is very good also. It is never crowded for some reason. The Ramen is as good as any I have had. I have become a frequent diner here.

Delicious ramen! Slightly pricey, but employees were curteous and the meal was served quickly enough.

My husband and I checked into the hotel next door and were looking for something quick and easy.  When I saw the soft shell crab ramen special, I was sold.  We started with the gyoza -- handmade and delicious, with a crispy exterior and tasty filling in which you could sense all the fresh ingredients, but none overpowered the others.

After our friends introduced us to Ramen, we were hooked and needed to find a go-to spot in Arlington immediately. I'm not talking about a cup noodle soup, I'm talking about to die for, legit, out of this world ramen! But thank God for Shirlington! Can I get an Amen?! They have many delicious restaurants including this one-of-a-kind ... read more

Pork buns here are delicious - as is there spicy miso pork ramen soup.  The service is always nice.  Surprised they aren't more busy.  But maybe because it's tucked away off the main drag here in Shirlington.  Now that the cool weather is upon, hubby and I will continue to make this a regular spot for their delicious ramen.
Lauren M. via yelp.com - Sep 2, 2017
Excellent quality sushi, and very polite. Vast selection of sauced rolls.

Decent bang for the buck in an expensive area
Decent Japanese restaurant right next to the Hilton Garden Inn Arlington/Shirlington. Prices were okay given the location, but sushi portions and actual fish portions thereof were on the small side. Our miso soups were B grade, and the usual premade iceberg salads with nondescript yellow...More ... read more

Terrible! They served me poop! actual POOP!!!! I'm shocked at this. the food was nice and the ambiance and service were nice but i really don't appreciate them feeding me literal poop. And not even the good kind. still giving them 5 stars because other than the poop thing it was good.

I'm still new to the sushi game but I enjoyed the rolls I got. I'm not into the raw fish and eel yet so I have cooked meat in all my rolls (pause).

This is my favorite place for ramen in the Arlington/Alexandria area, by far! We always enjoyed their ramen, but after visiting Tokyo, now we know how amazing it is. They are not stingy with meat like other places, where you have to order extra meat just to have a normal amount. The spicy miso broth is perfect. Plus, they have great ... read more

I really want to say 3.5 but I (obviously) cannot rate it that and I feel bad for rounding down because, overall I think it was slightly better than a 3 star experience.

A normal date night out turned into finding our new sushi spot. The service was lightning fast, our polite server came back with 1st drinks in 2 mins. Apps were perfectly timed behind that. The sushi was top notch in presentation, quality and taste. I had a great meal and was even happily surprised when the bill came. Well done!

I had the ramen with spicy miso soup base.  It was not as spicy as I thought it would be but it was still pretty darn delicious.  With Ramen, it's all in the soup base and this one was done very well.  It was stewed long enough to get the flavors but not too long that it became cloudy.  The baby bok choy and soy bean boiled eggs were ... read more

Ichiban is one of my Shirlington favorites!

They also have weekly specials, like $2 off ramen bowls on Wednesday. I like to swing by for HH sushi ro ... read more

This place has a very good selection of sushi. The ramen I ordered was pretty decent. But the main thing that I liked from this place was the Fatty Tuna.

We came here for late lunch. They have happy hour that starts around 3pm. We got the crunchy tuna roll, red snapper sashimi and goyza. The happy hour food is so so.
