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!

Oka's is about as good a Japanese restaurant as you could expect in a town the size of Oakhurst and 200 miles from the coast. Took my vegetarian sister out for Teppanyaki on her birthday. The chef was moderately entertaining and all four of us enjoyed the meal. I stayed away form the seafood and chose filet mignon. It was... More

Went for Tappanyaki at Oka. They offer a nice selection of meats and fish prepared on the grill. We all ordered Filet Mignon.One of us added shrimp the others had Lobster. The Filet was very good but the Lobster was a bit over cooked and tough. I would not order the Lobster again, especially at the price of Lobster. Dinner... More

Surprised that sushi was that good. I have also had their Terriaki Salmon which was outstanding. My wife loves their California rolls. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm.
