Great sushi in Hood River

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!!

It's not every basement that seems cozy and fun rather than stuffy or dark! Our family of five arrived fairly early for supper and still had to wait a bit for a table, this is a very small restaurant. The kids meals were limited so our littlest me berate edamame and miso soup. The staff had a special set of... More

Go here with a group and reserve a private screened room so you can sit on the floor and have lots of laughs. Try the many sakes, filtered and unfiltered. Sample the great sushi. But by all means order the Kickitat River salmon - the best we have ever tasted! The wait staff is very well informed on both sake... More

Wonderful place to go on a date night, or even take your family. Food here is fresh and tasty. If you don't know what you want all you have to do is ask, they'll give you some great suggestions. We've never been unhappy with anything here. Always trying new things on the menu. It is a must go to place... More

Thank god for Sushi Okalani. If you smile when you think of fresh sushi and a small intimate restaurant, this place is for you. Its hidden in a basement in the corner of Hood River's hot spot downtown. This place gets packed easy and can take a while to get dinner, but everyone there is working nonstop. Just be patient....

The place offers fresh sashimi and wasabi. I recommend trying the happy hour meals as well. The order takes a bit while to arrive but it's worth while waiting. So give it a shot you will not repent.

Sushi Okalani offers an assortment of delicious sushi rolls and other staples of Japanese cuisine, along with a wide selection of sake and beer. The chefs are all professionally trained and very friendly - eager to take special requests and make recommendations. If you do plan to try out Sushi Okalani, I would advise that you arrive early or go... More

We wondered why people were lining up before the place opened for dinner, and now we know. Seating is very limited, but the food is delicious. The place was busy that night, and the service was not very attentive. We never got the drinks we ordered, but the food we ordered was great. We appreciated the menu showing gluten free... More

This place is small but good. Great atmosphere! If you like Japanese food come here. It is a little hard to find, but you'll be glad you did.
