Have been here twice and had a fantastic experience both times. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is very chill. Deffenantly plan on spending a bit of scratch but totally worth it.

Went again for the ramen and everything superb as last visit. Menu is well curated. Ambiance is nice. Food is tasty from apps to mains to desserts.

This is the best ramen I’ve ever had. I had to get my order to-go, but it was well packed and survived the short trip back to the hotel. The staff was awesome and service was quick, even for a to-go order. When traveling I try to avoid going to the same place twice, but I will be back to Dashi.

Great staff, great food! Meats on skew were pretty delicious. They have a huge variety of local and import beers. I had Miso Ramen. It was delicious but it was too spicy. I had a hard time to finish it. Not sure spicy level was mentioned on the menu but I was not expecting that much spice.

I tried popping in for dinner on a Saturday night and the wait was 45 minutes, which didn't work for my schedule.
This rating is based purely on the smell when I walked in. Holy cow. I cannot wait to go back and try this when I've got the time to wait.
Edited once I got to go eat here: It smelled amazing the first time and it tasted even better than I expected. Loved their food.

We loved this spot. It's really dimly lit, which I personally love. (I've only been to the second floor so far) The cocktails are really nice and it looked like they have a pretty massive whiskey selection. The ramen bowls were SO good. The egg was probably my favorite part since it was cooked spot on. Super friendly bar staff, too. We'll be back!

We had a late night date at Dashi with friends and it was absolutely mind blowing. The waitress was knowledgeable, the drinks were great and quick. The ramen was amazing and I will definitely be back!

Get a reservation or expect to wait a bit. Usually the upstairs has room for one or two people. Excellent ramen. If this is your first time, get the Tonkatsu and you will love it.

A Durham must! The ramen is so good and well priced! There is only one vegetarian option but I’m sure it would be good. The appetizers and house-made drinks were delicious, as well! Seating can be a bit limited but when we went on a weekday night there was no wait although a large group might have a harder time. Overall, a fantastic experience!

I make a point to eat here about once a week; it's that good. Fresh food, great wait staff, great cooks (you're the man, Guillermo), good beer, good house drinks, good buns, it's all just good. Go eat here. Don't look for another noodle place, don't let your SO re-neg on their "I don't care," go. Eat it.

The menu had a great variety of choices, and the alcohol menu is expansive. The atmosphere is cozy (for a group).

Service was fabulous. I loved how it was an open kitchen so you could see your meal being prepared. The food was delicious. We will definitely be back!!

I had my first Ramen experience last night here. We had the Tonkatsu dish which had been highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The upstairs bar area is really cool with great atmosphere and a huge selection of hard to find liquors. The bartender (Alex) took the time to explain drinks in detail and makes some super craft cocktails. I will be back!

The food is exceptional. The Izakaya lounge is the perfect atmosphere. When I make my trips down here twice a year from pennsylvania I make it a point to come here.

This place has excellent drinks and food. My favorite restaurant in Durham. It is pricier but it delivers. They always have new stuff. Great for people who like to try new creative drinks and dishes.

Dashi is one of my favorite spots in all of Durham. The ramen is absolutely amazing. While you wait you can visit their awesome bar right next door and even have your meal there if a spot opens up. Amazing all year round but especially nice to visit in the fall/winter.
