Our Story

When we opened our first Teriyaki House in 1993, we had a modest goal in mind: provide fresh, healthy food at an affordable price.

Our belief back then is the same as it is now– fast food doesn’t have to be bad for you.  When we were growing up, street food made with fresh, local ingredients were readily available at a price everyone could afford.  With that in mind, we strive to provide an alternative way to eat cleanly and healthily–food that you can enjoy everyday without breaking the bank or having a guilty conscience.

Chico has been our home now for the last twenty years.  Since then,  many of our customers became our dear friends.   We still get butterflies in our stomachs when our customers from all these years come back with their children and grandchildren.  Most are ecstatic that our menu hasn’t changed; that the same family still run the place; that our prices practically defy inflation.

Thank you for letting us be a part of this wonderful community!  We look forward to serving you for many more years to come.

It is the philosophy that makes us a beloved institution in Chico for the past twenty years. Founded in the early 1990, we serve generations of Chico residents with fresh and healthy alternatives to fast food.

Customer Reviews

This place is delicious, it's cheap and it's amazing.
Julia L, New York.

Teriyaki House has been a favorite of mine since it opened in it's former location on the Esplanade. The standard "Chicken Bowl" is marinated chicken over a bed of veggies and rice, and covered in a teriyaki sauce. Other combos can be found on the menu, including chicken skewers, egg rolls, and sweet & sour dishes....but it's the chicken bowls that keep people coming back.
