SATO (modern Japanese cuisine) evolved from a family tradition of ramen restaurants that began in Fukui, Japan (just north of Kyoto) and expanded to Tokyo. Executive Chef Satomi grew up in a restaurant family that became famous for a Fukui-style ramen, which consists of a pork bone tonkotsu and chicken bone torigara blend that adheres to a quality balanced broth of both hardiness and smoothness. 


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 Japanese food that is scratch-made, fresh, healthy, and sophisticated, with authentic Japanese flavors blending with local and seasonal ingredients. Our Elmwood location has a diverse Japanese food menu ranging from sushi, ramen, Japanese curry, tonkatsu pork cutlet, salad etc. with a wide array of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items.
