We've been going to Oka since before they moved into their new restaurant (18+ years). Back in the day my husband would walk in and they'd shout out in greeting, "Chicken Rice Bowl Boy!" That was part of it's charm, and it made us just...More

The service was great....we had Amanda ...she is a very pleasant server, always right on task and smiling,...we like her. The food was hot and fresh and was good. Loved the sake and the company of my lovely wife. The value was fair too.

Oka's is a long way from an ocean. Consider that when ordering. The place was in a slump last year but has turned things around. My husband orders by the piece and has been happy. I always have the cucumber salad and California roll. I...More

I stopped here just by chance because I like Japanese food but I'm not sure what it was that I received. I ordered beef fried rice (Japanese?) and my girlfriend ordered a rice bowl. Mine was passable although the beef kind of tasted funny. My...More

It has become our annual routine to stay over night in Oakhurst on a Winter Sunday night on our way to Yosemite. Once again we had dinner at Oka's, and I think I need to lower the 4 rating I gave it in February 2013--even...More
