I don’t know what happened, but the food quality was horrible! I had the Yose Nabe which is a seafood stew. The broth tasted like plain boiled water! Absolutely no flavor! The only saving grace was that the service was still very warm and friendly

We had been looking forward to this dinner at Okazu Ya since the reviews on TripAdvisor all looked pretty good. We were not disappointed with the food, which was great, but felt really frustrated with the way we were served. Though foreign, we did our...More

We have been eating here at least twice a month for 3+ years. They have a really large selection from their menu or daily specials on a wall board. Fish is always very very fresh.

We were there for a family birthday party for a group of 12. Because of the large group of people, we were able to try a nice variety of dishes. Everything served was aesthetically pleasing and deliciously satisfying.

I come here every time I'm in town with my wife's family. Amazing sashimi, uni, a la carte items, hamachi kama, and dinner platters come with miso soup and ice cream. Could easily envision paying twice as much for the food quality here!

This place always looks busy from the street, but they have a large seating area in the back. I ordered the Salmon Sashimi and an avocado roll. My wife ordered a couple different kinds of vegitarian rolls. They served us tea at no additional charge....More

First time here and it was good. This place is packed and it looks like they don't take reservations. So you have to put your name on a list and they will call you when they have space. I would definitely return to this place.
