Oka Kingly Court
The menu showcases a selection of homemade hosomaki, Uramaki, Nigiri, sashimi and Plates alongside an abundance of carefully chosen authentic Robata grill dishes like bulgogi beef, yakiniku rib eye steak, kimchi chicken, Mongolian lamb and miso black cod. The drinks list includes Dewazakura ‘Oka’ Sake, Japanese ‘hibiki’ whisky along with specialty cocktail menu which use ingredients like lemongrass, lychee, fresh wasabi and many more.
- the service was very poor. The waiter told me off for ordering too much. We were sitting in the corner next to the bar & kitchen - it was loud, unpleasant, the waiter was constantly pushing us when passing by
Unfortunately, our experience at OKA was disappointing. The food was very good. However, the service was very poor as we were being told to go within 1 hour of arriving. We had not even had coffee or dessert and our server told us he could not serve dessert because he had another reservation waiting. We were not forewarned that we had our table for only 1 hour when we arrived or when I made the booking. I hope they improve their policy!
Third time in few month and it’s always a good choice. Food is great and service always good. The time slot for a booking for 4 is a bit on the short side.
Third time here and the food is amazing and also the staff are really very friendly and helpful. A lovely restaurant and will always return on trips to London.
So unexpected good, friendly staff, good service. We ordered 4 dishes such was plenty for lunch it was really tasty. Would recommend the Tataki asparagus rolls with yellow tuna, the salmon sashimi was so delicate and the bites were good too. I'll try some of the hot dishes next time I visit.
I have been to Oka a few times and the food is always excellent. Really fresh succulent sushi and the karaage chicken and tempura aubergine were both crispy and delicious. Staff very friendly and efficient. Only downside is its such a tiny space that you're really crammed in next to your neighbours which can make conversation difficult at times - you have to shout! But it's worth it for the food.
Great food, high quality.
Great food, waiters are super friendly, but service has to be improved on a management level. I’ve received a call and agreed for a slot of 1,5hrs (dinner time, a bit tight right?). It took around 40mins for food to reach our table and when we asked for a desert (in around 20mins) waitress apologetically asked us to leave as her manager said that we had only 5mins left. Obviously we didn’t check time thinking 1,5hrs has passed. We rushed and left straight away and only then realised that it was only 1hr.
I think this is unacceptable
Really good sushi in Kingly Court - enjoyed our dinner.
Wir können das OKA nur weiterempfehlen. Die Speisekarte ist sehr abwechslungsreich und bietet eine grosse Auswahl an Vorspeisen, Sushi, Fisch und Fleisch mit verschiedenen
Beilagen. Das Essen wird frisch zubereitet und schmeckt fantastisch. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und gibt gerne Auskunft bei Fragen zum Essen. Das Restaurant ist klein. Eine Tischreservation ist deshalb sehr ratsam. Während unserer nächsten Londonreise werden wir ganz bestimmt wieder ins OKA essen gehen.
Another great meal at Oka Kingly Court, this place has never failed to deliver great food!
I love this restaurant a lot. Food is always at high level. However, the last dinner there was not good. We booked a table in advance to be sure that we have got a table on time, however we had to wait for 15 mins. Plus some small mistakes like they gave us starters before any drinks, did not apologize for waiting, my side dish for the main course came together with the starters
Sushi was amazing, I liked the sashimi a lot, I think it was a really good quality.
The rolls weren't too complicated which I liked. We were served straight away, we didn't wait at all. It was a nice atmosphere and the waiters very polite. Me and my friends were looking for a good Japanese sushi restaurant since so long and we finally found it!
I will definitely suggest it.
We’ve been a couple of times now and the food & ambiance is excellent
The great: The food was spectacular. We ate sashimi, tuna tartare, nigiri and California rolls and all were amazing, best sushi we’ve ever had by a mile. Really can’t overstate how amazing it was. The restaurant is tiny and in this really cool courtyard off Carnaby Street.
The not so great: We were very early for our booking and had a 1 hour limit placed on our seating. Slightly annoying but was sufficient and we accept they were flexible in seating us at all. Because of this, I received an opentable email afterwards asking why we missed the booking, despite telling the staff we were utilising a booking we had. Also, there was no toilet at the restaurant, assume there was one within the courtyard, but one to be aware of for those with certain requirements.
On balance: after the fact we are only talking about how fantastic the food was. The service was decent but the food was king here.
Everything was perfect. Went for a friends birthday. We had a lovely welcome. Everything was set out lovely. Music and noise was at the perfect level. We were catered for very well. Service was brilliant and quick. Food and cocktails were absolutely delicious! Would highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Thank you so much!
Sushi was delicious and at a great price too. The tables are very close together so you don't really have any privacy, but it's a great place to pop into if you have a desire for good sushi in Central London that won't cost you the earth.
I had the soft shell crab sushi and sashimi... Yum! Wine was good value too.
Will definitely return
Delicious Sushi, a must try if you haven't. Shame to only have 1 1/2 hour slot- I think it would be nice to have a little longer. Thanks Oka
It’s a perfect restaurant in kingly court.
The food it’s amazing, sushi, rolls, sashimi.
One of my favourite sushi restaurants in central London. Always amazing food & service
Once you go Oka you’ll forever be addicted to it. Amazing sushi, great service and central location
This restaurant definitely fits the gap between the ultra high priced Japanese restaurants (with excellent food) and the moderately priced ones (with poor food). My wife and I spent around £50 per person on food and were not disappointed. The tuna in particular was very high quality (nicer than in the top end places, though the top end places would have fatty/semi-fatty tuna, which Oka did not).
We were served quickly and the food arrived promptly. We did not check out the drinks menu apart from the beer and sparkling water, which were sensibly priced. The menu is compact but what is there is good quality and we left full. It’s not a fancy Zuma/Roka etc. but you don’t pay anywhere near that price. It’s also a different league to the lower priced chains so not even worth mentioning those. Japanese food in general is expensive in London but at least this place gives an option for good quality tasty Japanese food without being for celebrities only.
Fantastic food and service! I highly recommend the karaage chicken and all of the special sushi rolls
Il posto è molto carino, all’interno di Kingly Court a Londra.
Come ristorante di cucina Giapponese ce ne sono di migliori!
Great sushi as always, the karaage chicken is great!
Tasty sushi and great service!
Great food an very kind service. They help you finding the right stuff for you.
Fantastic spot! Really enjoyed ourselves, great food, great service. Would have gave 5 stars but it is a small restaurant.
Love the sushi here! And service is great. Definitely recommend
Super nice restaurant! Found it via tripadvisor. Its a little bit of a search to find the restaurant but it is so worth it!
A unique menu with very flavoursome food. Very attentive service. As the restaurant has a small footprint, tables are located close together.
Great little restaurant. Quick and friendly service. Delicious food and drinks!
Very delicious as alway, with lovely staff. Will certainly be back again
A tiny place but amazing food. You can really feel the taste of the fish and tell that it is good quality.
The special rolls are completely worth a try
Amazing food and very kind staff! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone
Outstanding food and great value. Excellent service. Perfect location too.
We love this place. This was our 3rd visit (or maybe 4th). Excellent sushi and other Japanese cuisine. Tables are tightly packed so maybe not great for a romantic meal, but if you want good sushi, with good service at a reasonable price then you cannot go wrong with Oka.
Food was fresh, tasty and well presented! I would definitely visit again. Tables are quite close together though as it's a small joint- so you can easily over hear next tables conversations. Food came in a timely manner and service was good. If you're in the area- definitely give it a try!
Particularly recommend to those with allergies or intolerances. Staff is very knowledgeable on the subject
