Ugly on the outside Japan on the inside

We lived for 5 years in Japan. Oga's is the real thing. It looks like nothing on the outside but when you enter you have gone to Japan. The food was excellent. Tempura is well know but usually greasy at most "Japanese" places - Oga's was wonderful. The sushi was superb. The menu is authentic but... read more

I have been to Oga's couple times, I like the grilled fish jaw and sushi. I think it is one of the best sushi place in metro west.

Oga's is a tried and true dining event for us when we want good, reliable Japanese food. I keep going back to the Udon noodle soup, though this time the tempura was served on the side. The teriyaki chicken/ribeye combo was good, and my son ordered a dish that was superb, thin sliced beef served on top of a hot... More

This is a serene Japanese restaurant with excellent service and attractive food. I had a noodle soup with chicken and shrimp tempura. The broth was excellent and the vegetables were arrayed in an elegant way in the soup. Others had sushi which they gave good reviews. A seaweed salad was another winner, as was an eggplant starter. If you are... More

Nice atmosphere and the food was really good. Can recommend the Alaskan sushi (salmon, avocado, and cream cheese) and the eel/avocado/burdock root sushi as well. The miso soup was good and so was the cold duck appetizer. The green tea ice cream was top-notch though the ginger ice cream could have had a much stronger flavor in my opinion. Only... More

Dropped in for what I knew would be a delightful taste surprise and was not disappointed. Some fresh fish had arrived from Japan and I had a sampling of each along with some nice sahimi tori, stuffed mushrooms, spicy bluefin sashimi, and a few other items. Add some nice sake and this was a perfect meal. The sushi chefs clearly... More

We usually sit at the sushi bar and order the sushi/sashimi boat for the 2 of us! Absolutely delicious, fresh and worth the money.

Hot sake was good as were dumplings and sushi (we had California maki, crazy maki and veggy). However the entrees weren't very good. We had udon noodles which came with tempura (too oily) and chicken teriyaki (overcooked). Would go back but would skip the entrees.

Not your ordinary Japanese restaurant often run by Chinese owners and staff. Oga's is owned and operated by Japanese natives and hence the food is considered authentic. Don't get me wrong though. I do not mean this is what your mother would cool in Japan. It's delicious, upscale, fancy, delicate foods filled with creativity. The ambiance and the service are... More
