I went with a few friends, and we all thought it was very good. They ordered more traditionally, but I ordered off the blackboard special and it was outstanding! The New Volcano roll that another reviewer raved about it. It was absolutely delicious. I was blown away in a way that has not happened in much fancier sushi restaurants. If... More

I get sushi here a couple of times a month and tend to get the same order most times. It's always great. However, I got the new volcano roll on a whim tonight and it was amazing. Everyone at my table agreed. GET IT! Seriously, don't miss out.

I wanted to love this but it was just okay. I tried the ginger chicken. More like chicken nuggets. Shumai is okay, two sizes, two ways. I tried steamed. Kani Avocado Tempura is just okay. I had a different expectation.

The sushi was just ok. If the rice had been sushi rice, it would have been better. The selections are fine and prices are ok but the rice was mushy. Service was pleasant and fast. They have take out and delivery too.

Everyone is so friendly here. The second you walk into this hidden gem, you are greeted with smiling staff and waves. When we got the bill, our waitress drew a little cat face next to the amount. How kawaii! Don't let the size of the restaurant discourage you. What they lack in space is made up in the high quality... More

I got a postcard coupon for Okea, which Would normally make me suspicious of the quality of the food. However, thanks to reviews on this site I gave Okea a try. Thank god I did! Best Asian food I've had since moving to Massachusetts. My advice is to keep going until you have tried everything. I know I will!

This place is great! Very small, only a few tables but the atmosphere is nice. It is very clean and has a large bathroom. The sushi/entrees are amazing! So fresh. This place is great to fix a sushi craving. I think it's appropriate for couples, friends and families because the staff is so friendly and open. There are a few... More

Impeccably fresh and delicious. Okea's sushi dinner tasted as though it were made from scratch, start to finish: delicious seaweed salad, sashimi, and maki, complete with octopus, eel, salmon and tuna, plus pickled ginger and wasabi. We took it all home, where we savored it with a Loire Valley Vouvray. The restaurant dining area was a little too warm--a little... More
