All that you want in Japanese restaurant without the frills can be found in this gem, Okawa. The fish is incredibly fresh and the employees are super friendly.

Food was better this visit.Unfortunate that the server lacks customer service skills.Very little expression and showed a smile only when presenting the bill.Perhaps being overly critical on one point:holding her fingers inside the rice bowl when placing the bowl from the tray onto the table.Possibly the last visit here.Plenty of other restaurants from which to patronize.

Very good rolls here. Pricey. You'll have a hard time here if you don't read or speak Japanese. We don't go there much because of the language barrier. Food is good though.

Disappointed this time.Ordered the tempura dinner which included shrimp onion rings and sweet potato.Bland tasteless with good dipping sauce.Prior dining experience included broccoli instead of more onions.Cutting back?Too bad.Will think again before returning.
