First, we are all aware in CR that transportation is an issue, but if you still decide to visit Okami by car, just leave it in the parking lot across the street, DO NOT double park in front of the shop to avoid being interrupted in the middle of the meal by another driver who wants to leave. Now for... More

Location: Small place, just 4 parking spots but there is a public parking in the north block. Very good menu: soups, rices, salmon, meat, chicken, sushi. The salmon teriyaki and the rainbow rolls are good options. Very good price for a japanese, like $20-$25 per person. Is not the best Japanese of San Jose, but price/quality is the best.

I stumbled by mistake on okami because we were looking for a Chinese restaurant around the corner from this place. Let me tell you, Costa Rica does not have a cuisine at all, and they cant cook to save themselves. I was so glad we decided to try okami!!! We had the crunchy roll (not crunchy at all, but still...

Unlike the rest of the restaurants in the area, Okami was actually quite affordable for the typeof cuisine it offered. The range of choices was more than decent and the quality of the food was impressive for the price. Service was nothing excellent, but their servers are pleasant. Definitely making this a regular place to have lunch.

It is not necessary to eat Sushi in San José, after all, this has nothing to do with the region's culture. Really? Well, the cook and owner (same person) of OKAMI learned to do sushis in Costa Rica, I don't even know if he has ever eaten the "real thing" in Japan. But he uses local, fresh fish, excellent quality,... More
