It has become our annual routine to stay over night in Oakhurst on a Winter Sunday night on our way to Yosemite. Once again we had dinner at Oka's, and I think I need to lower the 4 rating I gave it in February 2013--even in the context of the relatively few dining choices in Oakhurst on a Winter... read more

We went to Oka for dinner on a Monday evening. They have a good menu, lots of choices of rolls both raw and cooked. We wanted to try a few things, so we shared a King Dragon roll, shrimp and vegetable tempura, sake and deep fried plum ice cream for dessert. The King roll was made while we waited, tasted... More

Oka's has always been one of our favorite places to eat here in the mountains- but our take out order tonight was disappointing. We ordered what we thought was a "dinner" plate- which I had imagined would have been more than a appetizer size take out box. The Sushi rolls we ordered were mediocre and the fried rice was so...

I was disappointed in the food, it was not what I expected. The tempora shrimp was very greasy and the beef was tasteless. I had the lunch combo which was pricy. Don't stop!

Oka's Japanese restaurant is just a little off Highway 49 in Oakhurst, California. It is a full service Japanese restaurant meaning besides the regular restaurant they also have Tepenyaki available. I have been here several times and I feel it is reasonably priced. Tonight I had the sesame chicken bowl for the first time and I thought it was quite... More

My wife and I visited the restaurant in August 2014 while staying in Oakhurst to visit Yosemite. We ordered two different Sushi types for starter, the California rolls and Fried Calamari rolls. Both of these were excellent and we were looking forward to our mains after this. I had the Tempura veg and gyoza for main. The Gyoza were all... More

We have been to several Japanese Restaurants from coast to coast and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had. The Sushi was low grade/made from ground up tuna and the hibachi steak was literally cold roast beef with a little soy sauce over it. They do have one Tapenyaki table, but we were told that we...

Four of us had dinner here based on recommendations from our motel desk clerk. Three of us had Shushi, and the other had a Tempura Shrimp dinner. Everyone was more than pleased. One of our group was a Shushi fancier and he said it was excellent. For a good Shushi meal in Oakhurst, you couldn't go wrong here. If someone... More

I love Sushi and my husband 'Ace' loves cooked fish. This Japanese did not disappoint . The atmosphere is nice, service is good and prices are not too high. I love the Sashimi with lots of wasabi and ginger! Stop by this place and you won't be disappointed!
