Review of Okinawa

The service is very good, and all the rolls (sushi, sashimi, etc.) are prepared fresh, not sitting on a serving plate (like you find in some Asian buffets). One of my favorites is the Mango Tango, in which each piece is covered with a slice of fresh mango. They also feature gyoza, yakitori, and other excellent menu items.
I would rate the prices as moderate, but when the food is good, that is not a huge problem. They used to have an "all you can eat" menu, but it has been discontinued.
The restaurant is ideally located in the "L Street Market", which is very close to the intersection of Interstates 80 and 680 (and is easily reached by most of the western/southwestern housing areas of Omaha).
Occasionally they have offers with Groupon/Living Social where you can pay $15 and receive a voucher worth $25 at the restaurant.

We have visited a few times and had great meals every night. Everything we have tried has been very tasty. The calamari appetizer was really good & not the least bit rubbery. My 7 year old grandson ate almost all of it by himself on our first visit so now we order 2 so the grownups can have some! Our last visit was a few months ago because we are snow birds.

We did order Hot and Spicy Shrimp and Mongolian Beef. The dinners are served with no appetizer, soup, or fortune cookie. The portions are average size. There were more red pepper flakes on the Mongolian Beef than the Hot and Spicy Shrimp.

The service was the excellent and the food was average at best. The place was empty at 6 pm on a Saturday night. I was told that the sushi was good. The quality and value of the Chinese portion of the menu need work.

We travel a lot, but rarely find any sushi/Chinese/Asian fusion place equal to our nearby favorite, Okinawa Sushi. Rolls are quite creative and inexpensive. We find that we can have appetizers like Crab Rangoon, Nebraska steak roll (some might think the latter is a meal), edamame, soft shell crab, and salmon skin hand rolls. Then we follow with a robust meal like Sashimi. My husband usually orders hot & sour soup and salad (all included) . This may seem ecclectic, but that is why we love it.
We do like the cold sakes - the inexpensive Hoshi is our favorite. I personally like the beer & drink of the day option.
Finally, we find the staff consistently kind and accommodating.

Didn't realize how much I miss Asian cuisine till I traveled to the Mid-West. As a sushi place it is relatively good place with enough options to choose from. Service was excellent, rolls were good, oyako donburi was not what I expected but good in it's own way. The two boba drinks... I think i could do without. A bit waterdown and blan. Recommend giving this place a try.
