We recently had dinner at Ooka Japanese Restaurant at the Riverside Plaza. We went on a Saturday evening and the wait time was minimal and the service was good. I had the Salmon and my partner had the chef select sushi sampler. Both entrees were...More

My family loves the Bento box (this is a real bargain at lunch). You receive Miso, salad, sushi or your choice of other main protein choice, and gyozas. It's pretty and fun to eat. The Sea Bass is excellent. There sushi is a cut above...More

This place is great for sushi and cocktails before or after a movie date night. We've done the hibachi here as well, which is fun if you've not experienced that sort of entertainment before, but we usually pass on it...I'm impatient if I'm hungry and...More

Although I have only been here once, my experience was less than good. I do realize that A La Carte items are popular sometimes, but when everything has a price things add up. The sushi was mediocre, and the Chef didn't acknowledge us as real...More
