Okawari; a Japanese restaurant, run by Chinese people. Food is ok, service is bad.

I've been to Japan, the food is quite sub par. Though it manages to fool the English populus quite well.

Green tea (without leaves) should be customary upon every meal. Tipping is actually not accepted in Japanese custom, though the Chinese owners seem to forget this conveniently. A Korean restaurant in China Town chases you and says "excuse me, you forgot your money on the table". That's how it should be. Waiters are paid hourly wages, and shouldn't be underpaid for them to make up their costs on tips.

The whole restaurant is so un-Japanese. If you want the real thing, try another place.

I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews of this place... The atmosphere is good, as are the staff. The sushi is great and the seating-style is fun and it's great especially when you're with a group of friends or family and the food is always delicious. They also take Tastecard all day every day, which is great! I always leave Okawari after eating a meal feeling quite satisfied :) And they give us a UNLIMITED REFILL OF GREEN TEA! how cool is that!?

I personally would recommend this restaurant! :)
