Restaurant Review--Saki

Posted By Brandon S. On Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Saki is somehow the busiest hard to find restaurant I’ve come across. It’s in Clearwater Mall but hidden away. A gem deep in the rock.

And I’ve had a lot of Americanized Asian cuisine in my life, and I’d like to think I am a decent judge of it. So when I say that Saki was quite enjoyable, I mean it. I mean it with experience.

Here’s the idea, the premise. Saki is a buffet...without the buffet. You sit down, pay a reasonable flat rate, and then you can order off their menu as many times as you want—with the only rule being you have to finish your plate or receive a fee. They can be a tad slow to bring you things, but it’s well worth it.

The menu is large and full of the usual things you’d expect, and some more interesting others. They are not just the standard orange chicken, Mongolian beef arrangement. They also do things like Hibachi and sushi and all the standard soups. And, at a quality miles ahead of a random takeout place.

During the extent of my meal there, I got to have a wide variety of choices and could switch gears on how I wanted the meal to go.

It’s a unique experience, a fun alternative for those of you who may not be interested in going to P.F. Chang’s again for the fiftieth time. For those of you that want a more relaxed dining experience.

Plus...they have seaweed salad. Which is a food I adore.

So, you know, I might be a tad biased.
