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.

Located in a basement, I ate here solo on a Saturday night at the sushi bar...Lots of good rolls and other dishes, crowded, but service was stellar. Food was very fresh.

This is the best Sushi in Oregon. Hands down. I love the fish it's fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is alive and so popular, you might have to wait. It's worth it! I see more kids in this place - but maybe that is just the area culture. Kids eat heathy in the hood. I would keep it a secret... More

Very unassuming place. We must've caught this place right as it opened because we walked in and were seated and within no more that 3 to 5 minutes the place was packed out the door! Though it's not a particularly big place, this was a very astonishing realization; shared by everyone in our party. The chef was great very engaging... More

We came here after a lovely day of hiking in the area and were expecting good food. Not the case. The food was not up to my expectations, the service was slow, and the prices were on the high side for the quality and quantity of food they served. I will not eat here again.

We were looking for a lighter meal in Hood River and this was just perfect. The sushi rolls (Celilo and Bill Murray) were good but not great. The sushi was pretty good although I understand what some folks were saying in their reviews about inconsistent cuts of fish. The star was the wild salmon sushi! I love salmon sushi but... More

Being from Hawaii, I had to try this place out. The sushi was surprisingly good and very fresh. We had the spider roll, spicy tuna roll, tobikko and inari negiri. The yakisoba was okay. They had a variety of sake to choose from and the service was very good! Would definitely go back.

Having traveled to many parts of Japan, experiencing great sushi houses I enter Sushi Okalani expecting the same ole American sushi I had experienced before. From the entrance the first visual is the sushi bar. Tables are available but I was looking for a sushi experience. I like to see the freshness and pick and choose. I looked to note... More
