Very fresh and good sushi for reasonable prices and with friendly staff. The selection is big and we went there during our stay three times so good was it!

Been to this restaurant lots of times and I must say that it always manages to impress. The food is very good (quality & tasty) and the service is always excellent.

P.S. When ordering double check your appetite level, if you go buffet style you can pay for the remaining. So don't get 'tick happy' when ordering on the buffet sheet.

I've went to most sushi places in Malta, and in terms of quantity, quality and value of money, Okurama's buffet is definitely the best.

It's not the usual buffet comprising all you can eat sushi - it's actually more than that.

You have 5 rounds of Japanese cuisine, 2 of which can be sushi. During the sushi rounds you can order as much sushi as you want, but any waste/left overs will be charged at their normal per piece rates (this has never happened to us since we clean the food off the table right into our bellies every time). Some sushi pieces have a limited amount you can order, but there's definitely more than enough when you look at the whole menu.

The remaining 3 rounds consist of a starter (e.g. Japanese soup), main course (e.g. teriyaki chicken) and dessert (ice cream, including Japanese themed ice-cream called Yuzu, which is similar to lemon sorbet).

All of this for around €23. We've went three times this year, and many more to come.

The restaurant is only open for dinner, at 1800 (except on Sundays, when it is also open for lunch but closes in between). We went on Friday night and got there a little after it opened. We placed our order and waited, and well into the wait (at least ten minutes), we were approached by the waitress to tell us there is no white fish (which we ordered in 2-4 places). I understand that not all fish on the menu is available all the time. What I take issue with, is that they didn't think to mention or put a note in the menu so that the expectation - and disappointment - can be entirely avoided. I also ordered sashimi, which, upon receiving it with the perfectly slightly warm sushi rice, was still slightly frozen from the fridge. Lastly, there was a bit too much rice. All that aside, it was okay; not great, but okay.

We had the buffet menu and it was delicious. Salmon nigiri was perfect and I loved my teriyaki chicken. On top of that ice cream, yummie!
