We went for a Christmas holiday dinner at Okiyama Japanese Restaurant. it was a superb dinner. Lots of people were dining at this family friendly restaurant in Japantown. We enjoyed hot tea and saki. My husband loved his chirashi sushi. I had their bento box with salmon and tuna sashimi. Both came with rice and salad. Service is friendly and... More

We went for dinner on a Monday night so the restaurant was quieter than it was on the busy week-ends. We enjoyed saki and hot tea. My husband had their unagi donburi and I had their bento box. They have a large variety to choose from and I chose salmon teriyaki and salmon sashimi. They both came with salad, miso... More

Nice unpretentious Japanese restaurant. They have a wide variety of meals, but we had sushi, which was very good. The Nagiri sampler was nice. Service was quick and efficient. Prices are reasonable.

For a casual style Japanese restaurant in San Jose Japantown area, we like Okayama. Service was good. We had saki and hot tea as our beverages. For dinner we had sashimi, a crab roll, and agadashi tofu. Portion size was good. We also like it that they have a free parking lot by the restaurant. They also have a collection... More

I have tasted better Salmon Teriyaki, this was a little dry.They were out of the 2 flavors of Mochi we selected and the... More

While in San Jose, I wanted to try out multiple cuisines so tried Okayama. Service was little slow, but acceptable - it may be because I went late in evening. I ordered Shrimps with rice. Food was fresh and tasted nice with good background music. Overall a good place to unwind.

Okayama was our go to Japanese restaurant in San Jose Japantown for many years. We were surprised how the quality of the food has slid since the longtime owners retired years ago. The unidentifiable piece of "salmon" appeared to be a somewhat diagonal cross cut of the fish body and was overcooked. While the interior has been opened up with... More

This is a good restaurant for all types of Japanese food from sushi/sashimi to bento boxes. We enjoy eating here; service is friendly. Last time I was here I enjoyed their sukiyak and tuna sashimi. They serve green tea ice cream with the meal. Saki is good here. There is a parking lot behind the restaurant so we can usually... More

I dropped in here for a late night visit after volunteering. I was introduced to this restaurant about 2 months ago and have been back at least 3 other times. Great food, service, pricing and atmosphere. I will be back.
