Excitement is building around Martensville, Saskatoon and surrounding areas for the return of Otowa Restaurant, which will be opening their doors in Martensville this month. The restaurant, which used to be located in downtown Saskatoon from 1995 until last year, will offer a variety of Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese and other Asian cuisine.
A definite opening date has not been announced, as renovations are currently taking place; however, owners Mei and Ming Huant are looking forward to serving some unique food options to the community.
The new location for Otowa will be in the location that Pon’s Kitchen used to be located and following some changes, Mei stated that they will be able to sit approximately 40-45 customers and will offer a eat-in or take-out option.
“We decided to move out to Martensville because there are not a lot of Asian restaurants available to local residents. There are no Japansese and sushi restaurants in the community. It is a really nice city and we are excited to bring something new,” Mei said.
Mei is excited to debut a new menu which will offer new items that were not currently offered in their Saskatoon location. The menu will also offer a number of healthy options, and items will be made fresh. “It is a great healthy food option for people to try,” stated Mei. Although Mei is excited about offering new items, the classic favorites will still be available.
“We are hoping that many of our customers from Saskatoon will follow us to Martensville because when we closed down our Saskatoon location, we had a lot of sad people. We invite people to come and check us out after we open and try something new. We just want to be able to satisfy our customers,” added Mei.
