Amazing food, great value, 8 excellent service. A must for Ramen in Amsterdam

After walking around for a while we decided to pop into Le Fou Fow for dinner and are not disappointed :-) Amazing Gyoza and fantastic Ramen. I can't find anything faults with Le Foe Fow!

A friend took me here for a quick dinner. We both had the classic tonkotsu ramen and shared a cold tofu starter. The ramen was tasty with good quality creamy broth, the way tonkotsu broth should be. The portions were just right. The tofu was silky and tasted very delicious with just the right amount of spiciness. This is a... More

We just had a quick bite to eat here. The gyoza were very fresh and tasty and we shared a very decent sized soup. Very quick service and buzzy atmosphere. Int he heart of a lovely area. Perfect for a quick lunch.

This restaurant does it exactly what is says.....deliver's you a great tasting bowel of Ramen. There are enough choices to keep the noodle soup interesting and taste wise it was perfect. Very enjoyable and I would certainly go back for more...!

Le Fou Fow is exactly what it purports to be - a ramen shop. Like the dozens of noodle shops springing up in my native NYC, it is small, fast, and focused on what it does - japanese noodle soups. Nothing special about the atmosphere (although they let me sit as long as I wanted), but the tonkatsu broth I... More

I was already a frequent visitor of the Fou Fow diner situated on the 3rd floor of the Dun Yong store at Nieuwmarkt, and couldn't wait for the bona fide restaurant to open its doors. After dining there twice, however, I have indeed mixed feelings. Food quality is consistently great (I had the chicken & pork broth ramen, gyoza and... More

Delicious ramen right in the Jordaan! I was quite surprised to see how authentic the cuisine was; ramen seems to be scarce in this part of the world. The gyozas were very good, and the miso ramen was cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.

Just located around the corner at number 2 on the Elandsgracht. As we visit the 'negen straatjes' area often, we discovered this place by coincidence. We just walked by and decided to enter for lunch. A simple decor and approximately 25 seats. The menu is Ramen in pork broth, chicken broth, a combination of pork and chicken broth or vegan....

Tucked away on third floor of the Asian market...gotta know where to look but so worth finding. In NY there would be a one hour wait for this bowl!
