“Awesome noodle place but long wait”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Had to wait an hour and a half; however, well worth it. They send you down the street to some other cool bars and will text you when ready. We ate at 11:45PM at a wall counter and struck up a great conversation with a local bar owner who frequents the place. The menu is very focused and the waitstaff are great with recommendations. Great Sake menu as well. Highly recommended!

“Advice”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

The noodles and broth are great, but are not worth a 3 hour wait on a Friday or Saturday. Don't get the cocktails, hardly any alcohol in them. Get the sake. Go on a week night and get there when they open, the place is very small. Or you can do carry out, which is even more effective.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Really good food. It's just as good to a lot of the popular places in NYC, like Ippudo. Try the Kimchi Ramen.

“Noodles Noodles Noodles!”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Excellent service, the bartender was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the beer selections and what we would enjoy best based on our preferences. He truly was excellent. The food was quick, hot and very flavorful. We were a party of five which is a large party for a restaurant this size. Seriously good food and service.

“When there is no choice”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I am from Hong Kong and know what is good ramen. Since there is not many ramen place in DMV area, Toki Underground can do the job and satisfy your ramen craving. Be prepared to pay for it. When you start to add more toppings to your noodle bowl, you can end up paying $14 for a bowl of noodles. I have been to Jin ramen in NYC and it was better there and cheaper. One thing you can't miss at Toki is the corn. I can eat a few of them. The place is small so you will have to wait an hour sometimes.
