Ren's is a tightly packed palace of excellent ramen soups. Patron's wait for seating to match the size of their party and then are allowed entrance. The menu is broad and lean's toward the carnivorous and could offer more selections for pescetarians and vegetarians. Staff is congenial and knowledgeable but I felt a bit rushed to place an order due... More

Very satisfying on a cold winter's day-enormous portion, nice vegetables, pork and coconut milk curried ramen. My family ordered the miso and shoyu options, which had a rich pork broth, but too salty for me. I'd like to try the seafood ramen next. Very authentic, mom & pop feel-no decor. We went early and it was starting to fill up... More

My first time here and first time in to have authentic Japanese noodles. The bowls were enormous and taste incredible. Service was great too. I will definitely be back on my next visit.

You have not had ramen until you visit Ren's Ramen. It is nothing like that tired rectangular pack you get for 10 cents at the store. This is fresh ingredients with imported noodles made the old fashioned way. This is a tiny restaurant but it's never too busy that you can't get a seat. There's a vegetarian option that tastes...

So far this is the best place for ramen in DC area (red line Wheaton and 10 minutes walk). We ordered the miso and shoyu ramen with extra egg, nori (seaweed) and pork belly. Both were terrific. The broth was very rich, lots of flavor. Terrible service. Cash only.

Currently, I "am a fan" of this place because as most of you Ramen Seekers out there know, it's kind of hard to find a place that makes good, authentic Ramen. In terms of location and look of the restaurant, it can be a little difficult to find parking in the private lot in front of the store, because it's... More

It's a yucky neighborhood (Wheaton) but I can deal because I really like the ramen here. I usually get the Stamina Ramen which is spicier and has a poached egg. It just hits the spot. The fried rice here is also good. Cons are that it's such a small place and waiting in line for a table is a little... More

I am not a ramen connoisseur and probably think it's one of the most over-rated dishes on earth, "authentic" or "instant". Now with that being said, they have a decent ramen with a rich salty broth. The prices were a little ridiculous (two figures for any given bowl of ramen, served with a single slice of pork. Eeek! ). I... More

Ren's Ramen is a small restaurant out in Wheaton, with a small parking lot outside. I'm always a fan of a ramen joint that's located in the suburbs. Typically, there's less of a wait. That being said, once you're seated, your orders come out lightning fast as well. The ramen here is pretty average, but what Ren's Ramen offers is... More
