I went to Sushi Okalani the other night with a close friend. At first glance, the awkward little out door hallway to the entrance gave me bad feelings, but then as soon as we got in everything changed. We were instantly greeted with warm welcomes and were placed at small but nice table. The sushi chefs are right in the... More

We arrived early, and got the last available table! Extensive menu and everything was beautifully prepared and delicious. Nice local art display, too!

Really good sushi here, and at very reasonable prices. We 3 diners had 7 different items, including salads, sushi, ceviche, and tempura, and our bill was only $55. We have paid much more for much less at other sushi spots.

The wait for us was over 30 minutes, but they offer drinks and free edamame as you wait and you can even walk next door to Celilo and enjoy a drink in their bar as you wait (Celilo has great cocktails and wine). When we finally were seated, we were pretty crowded at the bar but it was fun to... More

We live in Seattle and I've eaten a lot of sushi in a lot of places but I've never had better salmon sushi in my life. I bit it with my lips it was that tender. BEST.

Sushi Okalani is a unique dining experience, nestled away down some steps in a low key setting, offering top quality oriental cuisine. A great range of food and drinks, knowledgable staff and cute 10-person "hideaway" dining rooms wi Japanese style screens, this is a must-do if you're ever in down town Hood River.

Ate here on the power of the previous reviews. Sadly it couldn't hold a candle to another favorite Japanese restaurant that we have enjoyed, The wait staff was helpful and friendly but the food really so-so. Imagine needing to add soy sauce to miso soup to have ANY flavor?!? The edemane were hot and sea salted on top, not cooked... More

My husband and I went here for lunch and had an amazing experience. The chirashi bowls were excellent; very substantial pieces of fish that was fresh and tasty. The salmon sashimi was the best I ever had. Went again for dinner on another day, different sushi chef; still excellent fish but the sashimi portions were definitely a bit smaller. I... More
