My wife and I visited the restaurant in August 2014 while staying in Oakhurst to visit Yosemite. We ordered two different Sushi types for starter, the California rolls and Fried Calamari rolls. Both of these were excellent and we were looking forward to our mains after this. I had the Tempura veg and gyoza for main. The Gyoza were all... More

We have been to several Japanese Restaurants from coast to coast and this is by far the worst experience we have ever had. The Sushi was low grade/made from ground up tuna and the hibachi steak was literally cold roast beef with a little soy sauce over it. They do have one Tapenyaki table, but we were told that we...

Four of us had dinner here based on recommendations from our motel desk clerk. Three of us had Shushi, and the other had a Tempura Shrimp dinner. Everyone was more than pleased. One of our group was a Shushi fancier and he said it was excellent. For a good Shushi meal in Oakhurst, you couldn't go wrong here. If someone... More

I love Sushi and my husband 'Ace' loves cooked fish. This Japanese did not disappoint . The atmosphere is nice, service is good and prices are not too high. I love the Sashimi with lots of wasabi and ginger! Stop by this place and you won't be disappointed!

Oka's is about as good a Japanese restaurant as you could expect in a town the size of Oakhurst and 200 miles from the coast. Took my vegetarian sister out for Teppanyaki on her birthday. The chef was moderately entertaining and all four of us enjoyed the meal. I stayed away form the seafood and chose filet mignon. It was... More

Went for Tappanyaki at Oka. They offer a nice selection of meats and fish prepared on the grill. We all ordered Filet Mignon.One of us added shrimp the others had Lobster. The Filet was very good but the Lobster was a bit over cooked and tough. I would not order the Lobster again, especially at the price of Lobster. Dinner... More

Surprised that sushi was that good. I have also had their Terriaki Salmon which was outstanding. My wife loves their California rolls. The atmosphere is very welcoming and warm.

Almost all the staff was American except the sushi girls who did a great job with the sushi... Service was ok, not stellar, American way ;-) Good selection of sushis... Good saki and Sapporo beer... Ambiance and music was blah... Service was ok... Sushi were very good!!! Need to be very patient but fine when in good company... Thanks!

Oka has a good choice of sushi. I was introduced to Phillie rolls not long ago. My fav is still their California rolls, but they have raw fish choices too. Their miso soup and salad, which comes with entrees, are delicious. I only wish they offered brown rice for those of us who don't eat white rice.

Thank Tutujana
