Parking & Transportation

We highly recommend you take Uber or Lyft, or metro to Kyirisan. We are 2.5 blocks from the Shaw-Howard University Metro Station, and 3 blocks from the U Street Metro Station.

There is metered street parking in front of Kyirisan on 8th street and there are also various parking lots in the neighborhood. We do not offer valet.

The closest parking lot to us is:  2345 Sherman Ave. NW – Banneker South Lot, on Howard University's campus, operated by Tag-B. It is located on the east side of Sherman Ave. NW between Barry Pl. NW and Euclid St. NW.  It operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 


We accept reservations 30 days in advance.

If you don’t see a reservation available in your chosen time, please give us a call! We reserve a portion of our dining room, as well as our “cook nook” (a high top communal table), our bar, and our patio for walk-ins every night. 

Reservations are held for 15 minutes after the time of the reservation to ensure that all of our guests are seated in a timely manner.  We kindly request for all members of the party to be present in order to be seated. There is a 24 hour cancellation fee of $20 per person, for parties 4 or larger. If the reservation is cancelled with more than 24 hours no fee will be charged.

Our dining room can only accommodate parties of 6 guests. Inquiries for larger parties require private dining arrangements and can be discussed with a manager at 202-525-2383.


We are closed Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. We are open for Brunch only on Easter Sunday.


Kyirisan has a wheelchair accessible entrance and restroom. Our outdoor dining area also is wheelchair accessible. Since some of our tables are booths, and therefore not accessible, please note in your reservation if you need an accessible table.
