Very good. Great food, nice table, good staff. Minor annoyance that you have to go outside and upstairs with a key code for the toilet, but that’s a feature of the whole location. Will definitely go back.

As usual the food is outstanding, the only thing that holds up Oka is the appalling waiting staff, they aren't experienced, there isn't enough of them, they are so slow, you constantly have to ask for your wine to be poured, where your food is, and when you've only got 50 mins as your on your lunch break it gets quite stressful.

The last time I was in there the food never arrived as they'd forgotten to give our order to the kitchen!! but I go back as love the food, I think in future I'll just get a take out!!

The most delicious food, great service, fabulous location. Perfect for small numbers due to the size of the restaurant. Would highly recommend it and probably best to book.

Cosy spot in Kingly Court with quick service. Would recommend the sashimi and the dragon roll especially. Beers were not quite cold enough but that's a small criticism as everything else was lovely.

The food was great and I had a great time for a catch up with a friend. My only set back was that I was never made aware that I had the table for an hour and half and we had to be told to leave. This should be made clear when booking the table, should it have been an intense catch up with a friend I would have booked somewhere else with a longer dwell time.
Overall though, the food and drinks were great!

Just had a nice chilled date with my girlfriend, but I have been here plenty of times before and think it’s brilliant. Great quality food and the service we have had has always been excellent. Not a massive menu, but there still a great selection to choose from.. Dragon rolls and the beef are my recommendations. Great spot to go in such a central location.

I visited on Tuesday with a friend and we had a great time. The sushi was delicious and the waitress made some excellent recommendations for us. The only downside to the restaurant is how close the tables are together. You do feel a bit on top of each other, however as my friend pointed out, who has spent a lot of time in Japan, it made it all the more authentic!

Great food, good location on second floor and nice facilities.
Missed out on higher score as they forgot to give us menus. And never gave us requested tap water.

Cosy evening for my birthday. Great service, and the food was very good though not exceptional. And that is quite alright given the type of place this is. We enjoyed ourselves, and it looked like the other guests did the same. Will definitely be back:-)

The restaurant is cosy and quite small and was perfect for a catch up session with a friend. The food is amazing especially the miso kimchi soup and the tuna sushimi. The service was good, although I suspect that language barrier would explain the slight lack of comprehension over humour. The South African white wine is very good.

Manchmal zuviel Mayonnaise. Sehr enge Sitzplätze, ist aber typisch für London. Service sehr aufmerksam.
Alles in allem - lecker und zu empfehlen

I have been going to Oka for many years as it has been my favourite restaurant, sushi is great quality for money and the cookie dough is also amazing. Unfortunately, this time round the service wasn't great, we received one sushi roll at a time, with waiting times between. Usually you would get a few sushi roll plates and be able to alternate between them, but not this time. Our dessert came before the last sushi roll that we ordered and it took over 10mins for the sushi to come after our dessert which was upsetting and when mentioned to the waitress she just said our sushi will come soon, all whilst the ice cream was melting on our cookie dough. At the end after we paid, the waitress just disappeared and I had to go get my coat myself. I was very surprised, as most of the time we come here service seems ok, but after my experience I am considering looking for another sushi restaurant to go to instead.

Pretty good sushi at not ridiculous prices for London. Cocktails were very good.
Service could have been quite a bit better, drinks sat empty for long time every round and staff are well trained at avoiding eye contact forcing you to shout excuse me if you want to order. This would not have been a big deal if a service charge of 12.5% wasn't added to every bill (even single / two person tables).

It's a great place with pleasant staff. It is small and you are packed together and it meant conversation at times was tough due to noise. However it is in the great Kingley Court and you almost expect that. We didn't share dishes and the portion size was good for a main course.

All our food didn't arrive at the same time. I wasn't in love with the interior design of the restaurant either.
On the other hand, the service was relativity fast and fantastic location.
