20 University Ave NE
Minneapolis, MN 55413 Riverfront District Rate and review


PinKU is understanding. Socially relevant. Japanese urbanity. It tells a story.

John Sugimura is executive chef, concept-brand director, and partner at PinKU Japanese Street Food in Minneapolis and at MSP Airport. He is a second-generation Japanese-American professionally trained sushi chef, whose life-long love of sushi blossomed during time spent in Kyoto, Japan. Eating John's cuisine is like eating in his grandmother's restaurant in the 1930s. It is the ultimate expression of flavors, colors, and cooking methods, coming together in an authentic experience that is one-of-a-kind.

PinKU has amassed a portfolio of prestigious awards in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area. Highlights include:

The Global Food of the Twin Cities – JAPANESE

Best Sushi
