Employee party in the VIP

We went here for our employee party this year. It was my first time here and I really enjoyed it! A few pitchers of Sapporo on draft and lots of hot sake later they brought out our sushi. It was delicious and beautifully presented and our servers were courteous and concise. I would come back here... read more

This tiny restaurant is very noisy. The service is good but the sushi is average and nothing to write home about. They have a waiting list so maybe other people don't share my opinion. You can make reservations if you have a party of six. They have an odd sense of timing and the delivery of the food to the... More

We went to Sushi Okalani on a Friday night. Understandably, they were busy; we waited for over half an hour for a table along with several other parties. Every other waiting group was served complimentary edamame; we were told we would served some as well but it was never delivered. They would have better off not to offer than to... More

Dropped in on a Friday evening and they were busy....but don't let that turn you away. Go in and put your name on the list and visit with the other hungry folks. Why? Well we know the wait is worth it, and doesn't take that long (really). The staff is friendly...and the sushi, soups, appetizers, tempura, etc are wonderful. Give... More

The food is always great. It does get very loud in the confined space, and there is usually always a wait time of at least 30 minutes. The prices are decent and the staff are attentive.

Sushi was good. Got one roll. Service...well, had a wait and was served edamame which was very nice of them while we waited. Then seated at the bar. I asked for lemon for my water twice and never received it. My husband noted that he felt like the waitress was treating us in a demeaning way, and I felt the... More

Loved the sushi: spider, deluxe california, pinchot and rainbow. The staff was great: really relaxed and yet speedy. Would definitely come again!

Always great sushi at Sushi Okalani! We've been going for several years. Excellent, extensive menu. FRESH, FRESH, FRESH. Super drink menu (beer, wine, saki). A great vibe with their music selection too. Highly recommend!!
