Visited Reren after a day of museum visits; the food was lovely and the staff were friendly - couldn't ask for anything more. The kids would have liked to make a return visit but unfortunately we are leaving DC tmrw.

The noodles are fantastic. Soft and flavorful - very unique. Definitely not run of the mill, same old song when it comes to the selection. Get the Dan Dan noodles and grab some dumplings. The staff is friendly just not very attentive. You can't beat...More

I don't know, try calling them directly and find out. Sorry, neither of us are vegan and are not paying attention to that.
