Looking for some Sunday flare for lunch, our teens choose the Saki Restaurant in Ocean Springs insisting that we would love it. With a group of 13, we were surprised at how quickly they were able to seat us and pleased with the prompt arrival of our drink orders and appetizers. The menu had a wide variety of items to choose from that were priced extremely well for the amount of food that was served and the cooking entertainment we enjoyed. The side salad had a unique dressing that I will definitely order every time I go back. The menu had seven soups to choose from and the three that we ordered tasted just as we expected. We also ordered the fried calamari with sautéed onions and peppers which were deliciously tender.
Eating at a hibachi restaurant isn’t a new concept these days but this independently owned and operated restaurant added a touch of personality and character that made the experience fun for everyone. The chef came to the table with everything prepared and cooked the food with perfect timing, dishing out each person’s order without missing a beat. First, the fried rice was served on each plate followed by the salmon, chicken, shrimp, and steak according to each person’s order, and then the sautéed vegetables. Everyone enjoyed their food and before we were done eating, the chef lit up the edges of the stove as a grand exiting gesture.
Among the many lunch specials, Saki has great Bento Boxes and Bento Boxes for Kids that range in price from about $6 to $15 each so if you’re looking for a healthy lunch to go, call ahead and place an order. Saki is located in Ocean Springs just 2 miles north of Highway 90. Written by Sarah Harstvedt
