We really love ramen. Our mission is to make everyone else fall in love with ramen too.

Making ramen

At Sanju Ramen we make everything ourselves. We get up in the early morning to make stocks and chashu. The tares we make take days to get that unique sanju flavour. To create our ramen we are constantly looking for high quality ingredients that are sourced as locally as possible. For everything else we get the finest products we can get from homeland Japan.

Ramen has no rules

Many Japanese foods have rules about what can and can’t be done. Ramen has no such rules. It’s only limited by the creativity of the chef, and we got plenty of that. We make ramen that is unique and different. By combining traditional Japanese techniques with new ideas we form our own ramen. This is what makes our ramen Sanju.


Our team

Sanju’s team consists of various ramen enthusiasts as well as knowledgable Japanese chefs. Our chefs Masahiro and Hiroto are living here in the Netherlands after gaining 20 years of cooking experience in Japan. Every single one of us has a passion for the products we serve. We love ramen so much, we could eat it every day of the week (maybe we do already!).

Like our ramen? come try our sushi!

Handmade sushi, made by a real master.

What to expect

On Monday the 14th of October 2019 Sanju will change it’s look and will become a sushi only restaurant. The kitchen will be moved forward and the sushi will be prepared within sight of the tables, just like in Japan. To guide the sushi we will serve matching sake and teas, as recommended by Masahiro.

  • Multiple courses of sushi

  • Served with matching sakes and teas

  • Made right in front of you

  • 50 euro per person, including drinks

Chef Masahiro

Chef Masahiro is nothing short of a sushi legend. After 25 years of being a sushi chef in Osaka, Japan he has come to the Netherlands to be a chef. During his time in Japan he has worked for countless high end sushi restaurants and has even owned his own restaurant. For Sanju he has become a ramen expert but his roots lay with sushi.

His sushi style combines old school ideas with modern techniques. Forget all you can eat sushi, this is the real deal!
