About Us

The name "Kyirisan" (pronounced kir-EE-sahn) is based on the Chinese generational family name for Tim & Joey's children -- "Kun" -- and the Chinese numbers "yi," "er," and "san" (1, 2, and 3) -- the number of their children. Kyirisan, in its heart is about family, past and present. 

Founded in March 2016, Kyirisan has earned 2 Michelin Bib Gourmand nods, 2.5 stars (excellent) from The Washington Post (listed twice in the Fall Dining guide), and a placement in Washingtonian Magazine's 100 Very Best Restaurants. 

Part of the exciting developments in the northern part of the Shaw District, we aim to put adventurous and playful food on the table, in a fun, neighborly environment, with the highest standards of service. 

We love food and we love fun, and we want the same for you! Join us!
