In this article, we'll introduce some family-friendly chain restaurants that have delicious salad bars to enjoy!

1. Sizzler Premium Salad Bar (Sizzler)

The Sizzler Premium Salad Bar (1,980 JPY (excl. tax)) comes with a variety of dishes to enjoy, including all the fresh vegetable salads you'd expect!
We recommend first warming up with the cheese toast and soup that are included. Then, it's time for some fresh salads! At Sizzler, you can create your own original tossed salad or try any of their seasonal deli salads. Filling options like spicy tacos and nachos, curries, and pasta are also available, so you won't leave hungry.
For dessert, grab a drink and some fruit, home-made sweets, or soft-serve ice cream. This salad bar is so filling, you'll feel like you just ate a multi-course meal.
