One of our favourite things about London is that you can always guarantee to get a great Japanese feast.
There are so many restaurants to choose from but Oka is now one of our favourites.
We dined at the Oka in Kingly Court, off Carnaby Street, but there is also one on Kings Road in Chelsea and another near Primrose Hill too.
Kingly Court is the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining, complete with three floors of delightful restaurants and fun cocktail bars.
Oka is easy to spot, the fire engine red building stands proud in the busy space and the warm glow from inside welcomes you in.
As you know, we have an obsession with beautiful flooring… and this one did not disappoint!
This cosy restaurant offers handmade sushi and traditional pan-Asian dishes, using only fresh, healthy and extremely tasty ingredients.
Chopsticks at the ready!
We opted for delicious Karaage chicken; crunchy Japanese chicken thighs served with a spicy ketchup.
Our all time favourite; tempura soft shell crab, served with jalapeno sauce.
Salmon Hosomaki; rice rolls wrapped in seaweed with a salmon filling, served with ginger and fresh wasabi.
And Salmon Sashimi…
…so good, we ordered a second helping. We just couldn’t resist!
All washed down with a couple of Cool Cucumber Cocktails; Gin, cucumber, apple juice, lychee and elder flower. Simply delicious.
Whilst there are so many restaurants to choose from in Kingly Court, Oka really is a hidden gem and definitely worth popping into for some delicious Japanese cuisine in a cosy and laid-back setting.
