RK SAN is a testament to Chef RK Tamang’s dedication and expertise, offering a blend of traditional Japanese recipes and modern cooking techniques using local ingredients.

Welcome to RK SAN—where each dish tells a story of passion, precision, and a profound love for Japanese culinary art.


Established in 2016

Step into the exquisite world of RK SAN, where culinary artistry meets a lifelong passion for Japanese cuisine. Founded in 2016 by the visionary Chef RK Tamang, RK SAN is more than just a restaurant—it’s a journey that began when RK, at the age of 15, took his first step into a traditional Japanese kitchen.

From those humble beginnings, RK’s relentless pursuit of perfection led him to the prestigious One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives, where he honed his skills as a resident sushi chef alongside Michelin-starred culinary maestros. His culinary prowess continued to flourish in Sydney, where he became the head chef of the sushi and sashimi station at Flying Fish under celebrity chef Peter Kuruvita.

In 2011, RK embraced a new challenge at Sokyo, contributing to the original team and playing a pivotal role in shaping the menu concept. Armed with invaluable experiences from Flying Fish and Sokyo, RK fulfilled his dream in September 2016 by opening RK SAN in Surry Hills, the heart of Sydney’s food scene.
