Okay-la for sushi ya

This small Japanese restaurant is hidden along University. It has just a few tables, and a small sushi bar.

The menu is fairly standard fare, with some specialties. We decided on some sushi, chicken karaage, and agedashi tofu.

The sushi rolls were fairly small, but the spicy sauce was good. The tofu was firm, but cold and barely fried! It was quite disappointing. I was happy with the chicken karaage. It came hot and not too oily.

All in all, it’s an okay restaurant. Nothing too impressive, but it’s a cozy place for a quick meal.

Chicken Karaage

Yummy and hot bite-size pieces of fried chicken.

Spicy Scallop Roll

Good spicy sauce, but small rolls.

Spicy Yellowtail Roll

Same spicy sauce as the scalllop roll. But again, small rolls.

Agedashi Tofu

Tofu itself was nice and firm, but it wasn’t hot inside!

Sushi, yeah?

This tiny little restaurant along University is about the size of a large hallway. And to match its tiny little size, the serve tiny little portions. Ok they weren’t that small, but it’s definitely less than what I’m accustomed to. Prices aren’t bad though, so I was still able to get full for under $20.

Service is good and food quality was nothing to complain about. It’s a good place to go for a decent meal while avoiding the crowds at the more well-known restaurants along University.

Agedashi Tofu

Flavor and texture of the tofu was good, but the exterior wasn’t fried enough and it was served only warm. It tastes better when hot!

Chicken Karaage

These were very juicy and tasty. They need larger portions though.

Spicy Scallop Roll

Good flavor…. but small

Spicy Yellowtail Roll

Also good flavor… but also too small

Ton Katsu

Typical katsu plate with the addition of a tiny side of something that tasted like salmon pasta salad

Small japanese shop on univeristy

Very small japanese food on university ave. The service there was friendly, and it might be worth a look if you aren’t into the big noisy atmosphere of Miyake’s just a few blocks away.


BBQ eel with dry seaweed on top, with a base of rice underneath. Very tasty and fresh eel. A bit on the expensive side, but well worth it if you like eel.

Agedashi Tofu

The tofu was not fried long enough.
