Great Korean fare at a nice Japanese restaurant.

This is a fantastic Korean restaurant masquerading as a great Japanese restaurant. The service was attentive, the food was tasty, and the overall value was fine. I recommend trying one of the Korean specialities on the back page, as all the staff are Korean and know what they are doing. I did... read more

My 9-year-old son loves sushi, so as we were scheduled to be in M'Town on his birthday, I scoped out the local sushi "scene" before we arrived. Despite the many positive reviews of Ogawa on TA and elsewhere, I remained doubtful about how good it could possibly be. Surprise! It was even better than the hype. Among other delights, we... More

I was in town for business and saw the restaurant as I drove by. From the outside it looks like a hole in the wall. Once you get inside, the food is wonderful. I had a box lunch with shrimp tempura and sushi. I'll stop again the next time I'm in Morgantown.

We were passing through WV and we came across this small Japanese restaurant in a small town. The bento box and bibimbap was above average. The sushi that came with the bento box was below average though.

The Lunch Box Special is outstanding. Super value excellent food. Love the tempura. Service a little slow to serve food at time. But everything is fresh and delicious. If you like Sushi this is the place to go.

Every time I visit Ogawa it's amazingly delicious & never a let down! From the outside it seems a bit unwelcoming but I can assure you from the Japanese welcome you get as you enter the building to the see you soon when you are leaving, the service is stellar & the prices can't be beat! You most certainly get... More

This is your best option in Morgantown for sushi. They also do a fairly decent tempura if you are in the mood. Though the sticky tables and floors do make me a bit wary.

From the moment one is greeted when entering, the staff is friendly and helpful. We usually have a toddler and infant in tow. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. Chop sticks are made up for the toddler who delights in the special attention. Then there is the food! I am by no means a connoisseur but I have eaten my... More
