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. everyone wanted to try our fresh take on Japanese food. We were more than happy to share. Now there are over 250 Sarku Japan restaurants in over 34 states, Puerto Rico and South America. We are the largest and most successful Japanese Quick Service Restaurant in America. And with good reason.
