Sakai – Restaurant Review

There are a lot of restaurants in Vienna to try out and the Restaurantwoche which just means restaurant week, which is the perfect opportunity to try out different exclusive restaurants for a special price and menu.

Since Sakai opened last year I have been wanting to try it out but never had the time but immediately called up Erwin when I saw it available for the Restaurantwochen.

It was mild and healthy yet with such a powerful asparagus taste.

The miso taste was really subtle and I liked this (for me) unusual combination.shooting_vienna_sakaiWhat can I say? The food was delicious and the serving was well executed, the service was friendly and attentive and the Japanenese ambience of the restaurant was refined.
