“Great Vegetarian Options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Yummy!
I have friends that say that they have had food poisoning here, but I have always had a great experience. I am local, so anything different is exciting, but I do eat out in the Bay Area and this is comparable. They have a delicious teriayki veggie bowl, good (if greasy...are they ever not?) tempura and I just found out they do vegetarian sushi! Now, I don't like seaweed, so that puts a damper on sushi, BUT they have tofu wraps in place of seaweed. So I get the fun experience of sushi without the fish OR seaweed! Awesome!

Sushi and teppanyaki in the Mountains. And it is excellent. Make sure you keep eating here so they don't close up and go away! Oakhurst needs to support it's good restaurants!!

“A good change of pace.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

When your taste buds salivate for something different, Oka's Japanese food hits the spot. Their tapan tables are great fun to watch, their regular entrees from Sushi to tempura to steak and pork are all tastey. Service is good (not great if they're very busy), cocktails and wine are in small gleasses and overpriced. Atmosphere? Clean, comfortable, but not Japanese in style.

“Sushi menu wasn't the same”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

I was disappointed because there wasn't anywhere near the selection of sushi that there used to be, and that it seemed there was an overuse of teriyaki sauce on too many dishes.
