Very fresh sushi and sashimi!! Loved the food but service can be little slow as it was very crowded! Would recommend to anyone!

The downstairs setting is not outstanding, but the food certainly is!! Great selection of wines and beers. We opted for the largest assorted platter for our family of five and everything on it was outstanding. Make sure you share a dessert at the end. Tempura ice cream was amazing. We were disappointed they were out of their signature ginger cheesecake,... More

We snagged the last seats at the sushi bar for an early dinner on a Saturday night in late March. Sushi Okalani doesn't look like much from the outside, but it has a fun decor. The diners were enjoying themselves, and the staff were smiling and joking with each other and the patrons. I like to watch sushi chefs. The... More

This is our family's go to for sushi in town. We love the basement feel, the fresh options using locally sourced fish and other ingredients from local companies. Keep up the Blue Bus Maki!! The only con is we've had some maybe "off" nights, where service/food was slow or inattentive. Usually...it's top notch. Never stopped us from coming back routinely... More

I ate here twice for dinner during a recent visit to Hood River and enjoyed both meals. The chirashi stood out and was well presented. I thought the salmon and eel were each excellent. Service is friendly but a little eccentric, the place is small, happy, and a little loud. Not inexpensive. For me, it hit the spot both times.

This looks like a "Hole in the Wall" restaurant from the street, but the interior is very nicely done, albeit small. Service was pretty good, even though they were busy, and the entire staff was friendly. The sushi was good, presentation was well above average. Dinner of sushi for 2 was $30. It's not a great bargain, but we had... More

We went here for our employee party this year. It was my first time here and I really enjoyed it! A few pitchers of Sapporo on draft and lots of hot sake later they brought out our sushi. It was delicious and beautifully presented and our servers were courteous and concise. I would come back here with friends or a... More

This tiny restaurant is very noisy. The service is good but the sushi is average and nothing to write home about. They have a waiting list so maybe other people don't share my opinion. You can make reservations if you have a party of six. They have an odd sense of timing and the delivery of the food to the... More
