They were a little short on help when we walked in but when we did get waited on the food was excellent. I had the best spider roll I've ever had in my life. Sat at the sushi bar and the chef was very friendly very good. I'd recommend this if you're in the area

This restaurant is very versatile and you can order much more than sushi here. They also have group dining around a large grill where the chefs cook right at your table. We came for the Sushi, so we sat at the Sushi Bar and it was my first time at the restaurant. I love how they start you out with... More

We had not been to Ooka for a few years and had forgotten what a great party destination this is. The show put on by the chef was great. We had a number of kids with us and the overall noise in the restaurant actually makes it great for kids since it is pretty noisy anyway.I have the Filet Mignon... More

His place was pretty cool. The other chain restaurants are fine but this one is worth visiting in riverside. And it's been some time but MTV was Filming when we were there. That was pretty cool

Love this restaurant. The quality is very good. We like to go with 4 to 6 people and order appetizers and sushi at a table or booth where we can sip sake and talk easily. Try the Hamachi sashimi, baked mussels and Central Avenue roll.

I like sushi, hubby doesn't. Wide range of food options. Took the grandson there once and he got steak! Reasonably priced for the type and quality of the food. We sit on the opposite side of the hibachi grill where it's quiet. Can't come up with any negatives at all.

Really good food with chefs preparing in front of you. Like coming here. What's nice is that you can have your choice of hibachi grill, or sushi...

Clean, fresh and at a good price. Yes you can find a great sushi place in Riverside. Try the dragon roll, extra spicy.

I've been here several times and so far the best I've had is the bento box lunch. So filling and priced just right! There's not much more I can say except bring your appetite. The food is always fresh. They have a sushi bar and hibachi also. Lunch is still the best to me!
