What’s the TMAD Story?

There’s a reason Teriyaki Shops are found everywhere in Seattle; teriyaki is fast, delicious, and healthy.

With success across the country, raving fans, and average unit volumes (AUV) over a million dollars, we took TMAD to the next level. TMAD is spreading fast and now operates in 17 states and soon to be 50 open shops.

Teriyaki Madness is a fast-casual restaurant concept serving up quality, fresh, healthy and flavorful Asian food in a high-vibe atmosphere. Through years of mastering marinating, grilling, and wok-ing, we were able to make bowls that are as hearty and delicious as they are healthy.

Our food is made when you order. Always fresh, never frozen marinated and grilled meats and customizable bowls meant for delicious and healthier eating. We have a collection of sauces, made from scratch with the best ingredients so we can bring a one-of-a-kind teriyaki taste to each bowl at an affordable price.

Teriyaki Madness brings teriyaki to a whole new level with a family friendly, neighborhood feel.
