I must admit, from the outside, I wasn't expected this level of food. The outside looks a lot like a fast food joint they laid brick on, and for all I know, that might be the case. Step inside and forget the fast food. The sushi is on point. The hibachi style meals are excellent. The steak was a perfect... More

Okinawa not only has the best food but also the best service around. I wish I lived closer so that I was able to enjoy this wonderful restaurant all the time. Thank you an excellent experience!!

My wife and I live close by and it is definitely one of our favorites for quick sushi. The Yummy roll and the Tuna Amazing roll were perfect tonight! The ginger salads are quite tasty too! If you are staying at one of the hotels close by or just haven't checked it out yet. I definitely recommend.

Seafood salad was great! Both sushi rolls we tried were awesome (Amazing tuna and Dancing Dragon). Very clean! Service was excellent. Highly recommend.

First, the wait staff are over the top friendly. I've dined twice and had the same great service. The sushi is excellent. Each piece of sushi good quality and huge. Okinawa offers many varieties of saki. The udon noodle soup is excellent too.

The food is really good here and the staff is super friendly. I usually eat here for lunch twice a month. They have a great 3 roll special for lunch for $10.99 with lots of rolls to choose from on the list. Highly recommend!

My husband and I eat here about twice per week. Every piece of sashimi or sushi I have eaten here has been so fresh. They offer authentic Japanese food that is not on the menu. They have grilled mackerel and squid that is out of this world (not on the menu). The best hot green tea. They will let you... More

Every sushi roll I have had here is amazing and they have such a great selection. We always come here late so there is never a wait, but it is a great environment for a date. The staff is always very nice and attentive. We have also ordered take out from here with ease.

Been dining in and getting take-out from Okinawa for about 2 years; Every single experience has been great. It's really nice inside, the service is great, and the prices are well within reason. Plus, it's off the beaten path so dinner service is usually quiet. We usually order a small hot sake, 2 small rolls and 1 special roll, and... More
