“Best food in the mall”
Review of Sarku Japan

Sarku Japan
Ranked #77 of 147 Restaurants in Natick

If you find yourself stuck for lunch, perhaps because your kid is playing in a tournament in the nearby NE Sports Center, then this is the best option for a healthy meal.

Yeah, it’s in a food court. And yes, it’s in a mall. But the food court is clean, airy, spacious, and has a merry go round in the middle to keep the kids amused.

And while the selection of food is underwhelming, this one is the best of the lot.

It’s decent teppanyaki/teriyaki that would fit right in to lunch counters in LA or SF. Shrimp/chicken, chicken, or beef, or veg. Over rice or noodles, or just by itself. That’s the choices.

The food is cooked fresh on the teppanyaki pan right in front of you. And the chef can take requests like no sauce or brown rice (rice with soy sauce).

It’s nothing gourmet, but it’s way better than its peers.

They were pretty busy and had a long line but it moved quick. Service needs improvement since they have heavy accents and they don't seem too nice and you had to repeat your order. It's all about getting down to taking your order and moving you along. Food was okay, had to ask for extra sauce, usually they give you some.

Recently Sarku reconstructed their Natick Mall business structure. Before they had a shop for traditional rice and noodle dishes and one for Sushi and Maki Roles. After reopening recently they combined everything in one. This is definitely not an improvement for selection and quality of their offerings.

If you are in the Natick Mall and hungry, it's worth the time to stop by for a bite to eat. Each stir fry dish comes with veggies and rice and since it's an open kitchen, you can watch you meal being prepared while you wait. Chicken, seafood and veggies are the fare here so make a choice and enjoy.

While they cook the food when you are there my meal contained hair. Do not know how it got inside the container but I will not eat here any more. If I was not already late for a meeting I would have brought it back to them. wearing hats is not good enough.
