Best Sushi Value in New York – Okayama is one the best sushi values in the city. Their "Special Rolls" menu section is not to be missed--the "Black Pepper Tun" and "Mexican Rolls" are worth a trip alone. If you love Sushi, I cannot recommended this small, understated resturant enough.
Oka Yama Rocks! – Oka Yama is a little hole in the wall, but you'll get personal service and amazing inventive sushi. My favorite is the black pepper tuna salad. The sushi chef goes out of his way to please (the sushi lunch will blow you away with its diversity). Since business has picked up however, they might be a little less eager.
Hidden Find – Walked in not expecting much but was very happy with choice. The black pepper tuna sushi is really different and fantastic. The blue fin toro and sweet shrimp were awesome. The service is a little too slow but Yama makes up for it because he always is there to be friendly. Great sushi for first avenue.
