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.

Let me start off by saying the food is fantastic! However, I've just had the absolute worst experience dealing with the staff. (Who normally, are really good) I recently was billed over a month late for a meal, and then overcharged on my second card. It took me well over 4 days to get in contact with a manager or someone who could help, after repeated phone calls. Although I'll give them a pass on this as the restaurant can get busy, and I understand people have lives. In any case, after I finally got a hold of someone who could help and would call me back. I'm told that the server had messed something up on my card and their system was delayed. Not a big deal, I can live with that. However, I was paying part of my bill with an Amex gift card. (Worth $50) I hadn't checked it in awhile, and figured it still had a few bucks left on it since the server *supposedly* had only put $40 on the card. My receipt, which I still have, indicates this as well. Only come to find out they added an additional %15 ~ $6! (Which I assume is a tip, although I didn't leave on that card as I wanted to leave cash instead) In any case, I still am out $6 and don't even want to bother with it at this point. Figured I'd just leave a review and warn others about using gift cards. TLDR; don't use gift cards... Pay with cash or one credit-card only.

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).
