I've never had a bad experience at Sarku. To clarify, I've only been to Sarku and not to the sushi counter. We are very fussy when it come to cleanliness while dining out. What impresses me is the clean up that is performed at the end of the night. Everything is cleaned top to bottom. Not only is the establishment... More

Ate at this restaurant twice while in the area on business. Friendly employees and fast service. The food is served piping hot and is very good! Very reasonably priced and you will get a lot of food on your plate! I would recommend and I would eat here again.

We always stop here for lunch if we are at the mall. I feel it's the best food in the mall. Fresh veggies, flavorful meat (chicken, beef, or shrimp), on a bed of just right amount of sticky rice. Yum!

Good, quick but not fast food, well priced, japanese food- don't be fooled because it is in the Mall food court- its real food. large portions- cooked in front of your eyes. I ate the chicken teriyaki with double meat- under $10.00 and I had half of it left over.

I was disappointed in my sushi meal as the fish was lacking taste because it was semi-frozen. I am giving it an average rating because my friend was satisfied with her hot meal.

Great food. So convenient being in the Maine Mall. The portion size here is very large. My husband and Zi share a meal or save half for later. Also a nice selection.

Love the taste, quick service and awesome price. Good food at a very affordable price you can't beat that. The chicken was succulent, the sauces was off the chart tasty and the rice and veggies crispy and flavorful. I would recommend!
