Executive Chef Sakuma and his dedicated staff welcome you to Sakuma's Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar.
Sakuma is a renowned chef of many year's experience. Arriving in the U.S. in 1987, he first worked for the Chicago Kosiado Corporation at the Nippon-Kan Restaurant at the Hilldale Golf Club, Hoffman Estates. He later took over the running of this restaurant and managed it for over twelve years. Previously, he had worked in Malaysia, at the Shangri-La and Rasa Sayang Hotels on Penang island. Whist there, he catered for many notable local figures, including the Sultan of Kedah. In 1992, when Princess Norinomiya of the Japanese Royal Family visited the International Crane Foundation at Baraboo, Wisconsin, Sakuma was asked to cater for the visit.
In March 2001, Sakuma left the Nippon-Kan to start his venture in Streamwood. In the short period since then many accolades have come his way. Included among these is the rating as "Best in Town" by the Zagat magazine. One of his specialties is his own recipe sauce, a special blend that is also available for purchase.
Sakuma's culinary prowess is well known amongst his loyal clientele who include several notable local personalities and prominent sportsmen. Once you have sampled his artistry, you will keep coming back for more.
