What's in the glass: Strawberry Margarita 3 FORKS

What's on the Plate:
  • Seafood Enchiladas 3 FORKS
  • Chips and Fresh Salsa 3 FORKS
Customer Service: 3 FORKS

  • If you love Mexican food and appreciate the very best in customer service then this is the place for you. (Not to mention they have some of the best margaritas in the IE.) The chips are always fresh and perfectly crispy, the salsa mild yet satisfyingly fresh, the entrees always piping hot and more times than not melty with cheese. I've had many meals there over the years but I think my favorite entree thus far is the seafood enchiladas. Pieces of fish and shrimp wrapped in corn tortillas and covered with an amazing tamatillo sauce and cheese. The waiters are friendly and quick and the atmosphere is perfect for the comfort food you'll be eating. Treat yourself to some good eats. Your fork might even thank you.

Okawa Sushi

pepto bismo chaser. :(

Ste 100

Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739
(909) 646-7658

Genre: Japanese
Rater: C Lox
Pulse (ambiance/atmosphere):

What's in the glass: Pepsi 3 FORKS

What's on the Plate:
  • Stuffed Mushroom Appetizer 1 FORK
  • Okawa Baby Lobster Roll 1 FORK
  • Poki Salad w/ Assorted Sashimi 1 FORK
  • Miso Soup 1 FORK
Customer Service: 1 FORK

  • Where do I begin on this disaster known as Okawa? Well, first off, the menu is somewhat deceiving, most menus have a list of what is in each specialty roll, not here, if you want to know the full list of ingredients you better ask, however, don't ask the waitress, she has no idea what's going on. They have no warning about the intensity of sauces they dump on your food and have what I call "flurries of tempura" on everything they serve. The atmosphere would be nicer if they didn't look like they were preparing for a bro down happy hour where d-bags can eat gyoza dumplings and drink budweiser. The calming waterfall wall seemed silly when listening to crappy 90's hip hop. Even the chair I was sitting in was a joke. But back to the food... The fish in the salad seemed a bit off, the miso was underwhelming and the mushroom appetizer was a bit soggy and instantly fell apart. The Baby Lobster Roll, which I thought would be delicious ended up being rubbery. The experience left me so pissed. If asked would I return to this place that dares call itself a sushi joint, I would reply "FORK NO".
