Review - Oki Asian Bistro - Vernon CT

My 3-roll lunch - Plenty to choose from

Side noodles, only $2.50 with peanut sauce

Scallop roll and Toasted Eel

This new restaurant is an Asian Bistro which specializes in sushi and hibachi.  Elegantly decorated, ample free parking and appears to be amply staffed from our first visit.
We first heard about this new place from my sister and brother-in-law who tried Oki's hibachi when a Groupon was offered up.  The first time we tried their food was at Christmas, we did a traditional 'Chinese' meal at my sister's house ordering takeout from Oki.
I was immediately impressed with the vegetarian Hot & Sour Soup which will  be great for Meatless Mondays!
Paulie and I ordered mostly sushi during our first eat in visit - I had the 3 roll combo lunch which comes with Miso soup and a choice of 3 rolls from a list of 12 options.
Hands down my favorite was the side noodles with peanut sauce, just $2.50 but so satisfying!
The servers were friendly without being up-in-our-business, attentive without being clingy and even treated us with a complimentary appetizer - chicken satay and warm Saki.
Next time we'll try the hibachi, maybe as a family dinner.


I love comments and constructive critiques, just be kind, this is just for fun after all.
