SATO is Buffalo, NY's premier Japanese restaurant with traditional roots.  At our upscale yet casual restaurant, located in the heart of the Elmwood Village, you can enjoy food that is fresh, healthy, and sophisticated, with authentic Japanese flavors blending with fresh ingredients. 

Sato Ramen evolved from Executive Chef Satomi Sakai Smith's Japanese family tradition of ramen restaurants that began in Fukui, Japan (just north of Kyoto) and expanded to Tokyo.


Sato Ramen is a place where you can both get an authentic Japanese ramen bar experience and feel the Buffalo community and see why we are called the "City of Good Neighbors." Most of the seating is counter-style, with two community tables as well.
