Don't let the location fool you, this place is pretty awesome. The sushi is some of the best in town and it's a huge menu - that highly rated Jensei place in Homewood has nothing on Okinawa, well except that it's, for some reason, always packed annoying people. For almost half the price go to Okinawa, no waiting, the prices... More

Service was great, very quick. Sushi was great. Not traditional open grill hibachi, it is cooked in back. Would go back.

I stopped here solo for an early dinner in March 2014. The sushi was prepared well and came out quickly. The outside of the building looks a little bit run down, but the atmosphere inside is very nice!

This is the best place to eat in AL. I love it and eat here EVERY TIME I am in town. The food is scrumptuous. The service is awesome. I have been here at least 10 times now and I cant find anything bad to say. It is unbelievable clean and the staff is so courteous.

My husband and I decided to try Okinawa on Labor Day. We were both very pleased with the flavor of the food. The Miso soup was fantastic, and their fried rice was fresh and delicious. The only sushi roll I didn't care for was the salmon roll, which didn't have the sweet flavor I'm used to. The food and service... More

The service was wonderful. Everyone of the servers.waitresses had a smile and used all of the pleasantries of southern hospitality. I had no wait for a table and my food arrived promptly and as ordered. I ordered the spicy crunchy tuna roll and the tofu hibachi dinner. I was very pleased with both things - the sushi had good flavor... More

We were in Homewood for a volleyball tournament and found this restaurant behind our hotel. It looked dark and closed, but the open sign was on so we went in. The sushi displays on the trays they served were a work of art. We had the tofu meals with soup and salad and spend around $23 for two of us.... More

We had extended family in town for the holidays and wanted to try a sushi/Japanese restaurant. There are so many to choose from in the area that it was hard to decide. We chose Okinawa based on the previous good reviews and we weren't disappointed. The group we took varied greatly in their taste for Japanese. Some eat sushi on... More

Staff was very polite and sushi was excellent. I dropped my chopsticks and my waitress seemingly heard it from across the room and had another to me in a flash. Will visit again next time I'm in town.

My husband and I dined here in July 2012. Great server, good food, my husband had the hibachi - steak and lobster. I had the shrimp tempura. We both had sushi, really our first time. I chose the deep fried - Godzilla roll and he had the Sunshine roll. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend.
