The awe-inspiring Rinka restaurant was constructed with an open concept that includes a sushi bar, a sleek interior complete with warm tones and a high ceiling accented by modern lighting elements.

Situated on the Aeo tower’s ground level within the bustling Ward Village, Rinka offers an assortment of authentic Japanese cuisine including sushi, tempura, soba and sashimi prepared fresh by the talented heart-of-the-house team. Like the Japanese flower that it is named for, Rinka continues to blossom with an array of delicious dishes and flavor combinations within its spacious, inviting setting.
