Love the food and the service

I used to go weekly to this restaurant. Sushi is really good and the price is quite chip. All the waitress are nice and attentive. One of my favorite restaurants :)

On a visit to our daughter, who is a freshman at UAB, she requested that we go out to dinner for sushi. I, naturally, turned to my online reviews to find the best sushi around. Okinawa was mentioned several times, and as it was close to campus, we decided to give it a shot. When we arrived, I was a... More

My husband and I spent a few days in Birmingham and this was our favorite place to eat! The service was great and the food was delicious! My husband had hibachi meals and both were served hot and delicious (I stole a few bites). On our first visit I had sushi which was very fresh. On our second visit I... More

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
