In Japan, lunches are served quickly

From small stalls where freshness and quality are key. Shops value their reputations very highly. This was the same dedication of our founders when they opened the first Sarku Japan in 1987.

The idea was well received

Everyone wanted to try our fresh take on Japanese food. We were more than happy to share. Now there are Sarku Japan restaurants in over 34 states and South America. We are an exciting Japanese Quick Service Restaurant in America and with good reason.

Our mission remains the same

As it has always been: To share the fresh ways of traditional Japanese cooking with the rest of the world. That’s exactly what you’ll find at every one of our locations: Meals cooked-to-order right in front of you. Fresh flavors. No added MSG. Quick, friendly service.

We’re always striving to improve our quality and surprise you with meal choices that enliven your tastebuds.

Thank you for sharing this experience with us.

Always delicious and always made without trans fats or added MSG. In select stores, you'll find our Sushi and Bento offerings.  You'll have a great experience dining with us.
