Daikaya is the combination of the dreams of three men, realized in one space—their ideal restaurant, that they could frequent together, in Washington, DC. 

Daikaya is divided into two separate restaurant spaces, the ramen shop on 1F and izakaya on 2F. Daikaya Ramen opened its doors on February 14, 2013, and the second floor izakaya opened on March 28, 2013.

Our ramen shop serves Sapporo style ramen. Just like in Japan, our ramen shop is a fast paced place where diners can come in for a quick, satisfying bowl with a draft beer or cup of sake. Our recommendation is to sip the broth, slurp the noodles, and then dig into the roasted vegetables and broth-soaked meats. After three bowls, it becomes an addiction.

The Izakaya is a type of restaurant that serves Japanese comfort food to accompany a wide range of drinks. Dining is all-purpose, perfect for after work, before a night out, as a full supper, or for a late bite with friends. The cuisine is freestyle and adaptive in nature and each izakaya in Japan puts its own touch to their menu items. In this spirit, we also like to put our twist on our dishes and drinks and embrace our role as an izakaya in DC, with international and American influences as we feel inspired.
