Fukuchan Ramen Reviews

What’s left to be said about Fuku-chan? They only make enough for the number of bowls they want to sell that day and when they run out, they close and do it again the next day. Go early. Lunch will be a long wait and the supply never lasts until dinner. Worth the trip.

Order the ramen “kata-men” (al dente) and a side of gyoza. You won’t be disappointed. Copious complimentary toppings available counter top for the ramen too.


As recommended by Fukuoka Now website, we took the subway all the way to the outskirts to try this ramen. We arrived at 1pm on a Saturday and queued for 30 minutes. Not disappointing at all. Totally worth the trek!

The broth was very authentic, thick and creamy. This is a no-frills 100% local hakata ramen. Char siew was thick, and loads of garlic and spring onions. There's no English menu, but you can just point to the photo in the Fukuoka Now booklet. Only 600 yen for a bowl! You can also order 10 Gyozas for 350 yen. Fried rice seems popular too. The waiter will ask you whether you want your noodles hard, medium or soft. Highly recommended if you have time!


Without a doubt one it the best tasting ramen in Fukuoka. Old, nostalgic and served by a dedicated and hardworking family that never compromises on quality, this place is a must if you visit Fukuoka. Best part is, if you don’t finish your soup for ¥150 you can get a refill on noodles. They also serve fried rice and gyoza just as equally good.
