Taka in the kitchen


Taka first came to the Netherlands in 2008 for an office job, only to soon find out he could not easily enjoy a good bowl of ramen or street food. After 1 year, he had to return to Tokyo and started working at different restaurants to learn, never forgetting about his dream to have his own place.
In 2012 he returned to the Netherlands and started selling ramen, first at Waterlooplein, then moving to Toko Dun Yong, de Jordaan and back to Toko Dun Yong. Every year Taka returns to Japan to visit family and learn more about ramen to perfect his own ramen recipe.

Come and try Taka's creations at Toko Dun Yong in Amsterdam near the Nieuwmarkt or at his 2nd ramen-ya near Gelderlandplein.

What People Say...

This is more like homemade food than restaurant food! And I mean that as a compliment! The broth of the ramen is very umami, the noodles very chewy. Yeah this is really as good as it gets. Prepare to stand in line though



I was 2 days in Amsterdam and went to this restaurant both days—the food is amazing, the service was great and the atmosphere is very comfortable! I had a lovely view next to the window where I sat.



The ramen was rich and soothing. Exactly what we yearned for. Definitely recommend the Karaage as a side dish.



Came from Japan and when I tried this place I didn’t expect it would be good, but I was wrong. The ramen is excellent from the broth to the noodles. The kimchi was a tasty addition to it. Loved it and I will definitely come back to this place again.
