Dear Waraku Customers,

Since 2008, Waraku has been in this Suwanee location for 14 years and created a community of incredible customers who are dear to our hearts. We have been a neighborhood staple providing authentic Japanese food in a warm, family-like atmosphere and would like to thank all of our loyal customers who visited us regularly and supported us over these past years. We are extremely humbled that so many embraced our restaurant and that we were able to succeed as long as we had. And we could not have done it without all of you.

Waraku provided us with so much more than food but nourishment for our souls where we share stories at the sushi bar over a cup of sake, chatting with the owner about life in general, supporting a immigrant family of four, and just the extra gestures that make us feel at home in the local community. We were able to become gathering place to share daily tidbits, celebrate big events, or just to share a table with friends and family.

It saddens us to say this but our time has come to an end and we announce the closing of Waraku Japanese Restaurant. With a 50% increase in rent and the rising food costs, it is not fair to our customers to keep increasing the menu prices. The past few years have taken their toll on us and we simply cannot afford to relocate and open another Waraku.

Our last day will be December 31st, 2022. Thank you for your loyal patronage over the past years and we hope that we can provide an authentic Japanese meal for you before we leave. Additionally, we will keep this website up and any future updates will be posted on this site, so bookmark or save this page.


We will be close on Friday (Dinner), December 23rd for a private event. Additionally, Waraku will be closed on December 24 - 27 for the holidays [Saturday - Tuesday]. We will reopen on December 28 [Wednesday]. Merry Christmas!

What our customers are saying

"Whether you're experienced in Japanese dining or you're totally new to it all, this place has an inviting atmosphere and excellent food. Waraku is the most authentic Japanese cuisine I have found in the greater Atlanta area. It's more than just a sushi bar. The food covers a wide variety of true Japanese selection."

- Aaron Monks from Google Reviews

"Love the food, staff, service. We eat here sometimes several times a week. They remember my name, order and sometimes sneak in a complimentary special little dish. We come here to enjoy the food and companionship with whom ever we are dining with and the great food and home like atmosphere is always enjoyable! Hidden gem ;)"

- Sunshine D. from Yelp

"If you're looking for your favorite sushi/Japanese place to sit, have some sake or hot tea, or a quick and efficient stop for lunch with some of the best izakaya-food around. This is your place. Coming here after returning from my two weeks in Japan felt like coming home. As the name promises, I found my own harmony in the booth at Waraku."
