“Depends on cook”
Review of Okinawa Restaurant

Okinawa Restaurant
Ranked #34 of 63 Restaurants in Ellijay
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have visited Okinawa on more than 5-7 occasions and your experience really comes down to whom is doing the cooking. We have had times were the food is excellent to times it has been below average. The actual restaurant is a little dated and the service tends to be above average but not excellent. On a busy night your drink can go dry. It is the only option for Hibachi Japanese food in the area and its worth trying.....just hope you get a good cook or you will be disappointed.

We had dinner at Okinawa recently & decided to have dinner at the Hibachi table,we started out with a little sushi & I was pleasantly surprised (being from east coast where Japanese food is much more available) dinner was great & chef did a nice job entertaining us all.
The only thing I would have to say is the decor is a little drab and could use a fresh coat of paint and some updating,but I can put up with it to get good Japanese food.

This is place has fantastic sushi! Comparable to some of the best sushi I have had in the Bay area, if ,you like something other than California rolls,fake crab and baked sushi ( although you can get them too). After moving from Atlanta , I really expected grocery store or buffet style
" sushi" and was pleasantly surprised to find many raw varieties presented beautifully.
