Reren Lamen was a good find for lunch for our group of 4. We stopped here before going to a Capitals game. The food was quite good - one of the guys had the signature lamen & liked it. Another person had the chicken salad....More

Arrived at 6pm and were seated promptly. Ordering was quick and food came out fairly fast. All the food was flavoursome and so we kept ordering more. Can highly recommend the bao and soup dumplings.

Went for a late lunch with 2 adults, 3 kids - 13, 9, 5. Kids all had pork dumplings and enjoyed them (and I enjoyed the one I stole). Good dumplings but not the best I’ve had. I ordered the Signature lamen - noodles, pork...More
