It's been a little while since I've reviewed any restaurants in Saskatoon, but in the last week and a bit I've been dining out plenty. If you read my first review in "Eating Around Saskatoon, Sweetsugarbean Style", you know I never go to chains if I can help it, seeking out the independents instead. Bonus points if I go to a place which offers dishes I don't make at home. Such is the case with the Sura, where I fell in love with bulgogi and bibimbap!
Sura is a very new little neighbourhood Korean BBQ house situated not too far from where I live. The owners came to Saskatoon from Korea about 5 years ago, and have set up shop in a space that was a Chinese restaurant in a former life. Extensive gutting and renovations have turned this place into a cozy nook with an urban feel. Dark brown lacquer dining tables are set off nicely with warm purple walls which are highlighted with some interesting textures. Soft lighting beams out from some pretty neat light fixtures (I love cool lighting!) The dining room has only 7 tables, but I did find out they have 3 rooms in the back for private bookings, with 2 rooms having a capacity for 10 and one room that is smaller for a party of 5. Good to know! Reservations are a must for evening dining. We were here on a Wednesday night, and a few of the other tables were already occupied by fellow weekday diners.
