Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant, an Idyllic Japanese Cuisine Experience
Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant’s theme is Japanese through and through, from the food to every bit of its interiors, which is a picture of rural and traditional Japan. It is the perfect place for those who want to have a taste and feel of Japan without leaving the country.
It is located in Kapitolyo Pasig and right beside Café Juanita. The two restaurants are owned by Dr. Efren “Boy” R. Vazquez M.D, a distinguished doctor turned successful restaurateur. Doctor Vazquez turned his passion for food into flourishing ventures and now sits at the helm of his restaurants’ operations along with his son who is also a doctor.
Dining at Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant is like being immersed in all things Japanese – kimonos, sakura flowers, Japanese dolls, red lanterns, a small wooden bridge over a man-made pond, wooden panels, and other adornments that transport you to Japanese scenes as you enjoy your food.
Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant offers a great variety of traditional and modern Japanese dishes with an innovative touch. Every dish served is prepared and cooked using imported, fresh and high-quality ingredients that brings authenticity to the menu.

The Crazy Roll is made with ripe mango, cucumber, haikara flakes and topped with kani tossed with Japanese mayonnaise making it burst with fresh and savory tastes.
