When we visit the desert,
When we visit the desert, we come here... Server on Monday night after Easter was non-informative....No offer of help with the menu, suggestions, specials, favorites...nothing. Dining with 2 adults and two kids, ages 9 and 12.
Ordered seaweed salad, miso soup, Kobe Carpaccio, Atlantic Salmon entree, dynamite rock shrimpo and Nigiri sampler...one beer and one sake.
Food is outstanding..my son's salmon was so flavorful. No explaination of the nigiri plate. Had to ask after we were 1/2 done, and I could figure it out at that point. Kobe Carpaccio was fought over...not as described on menu, but still so yummy. The shrimp was great too.
We would go back, but hope to get a more personable server.

Had a great experience at
Had a great experience at dinner; the food was outstanding, the service excellent and the scene friendly and jovial. We went with another couple who, like us, have lived in the area for years and never been to the Okura Robata grill. I think because it's tucked back in a shopping center, it's easy to forget it's there. Our mistake, we all enjoyed it and will make it a regular dining stop.

The Chilean Bass was by far
The Chilean Bass was by far the best fish we have had in the desert at any restaurant, including any SEAFOOD place.
We don't know if they can get fish into this corner of the world without it being frozen but this Bass had none of the
signs of it ever having been frozen. It tasted very FRESH!
The only negative was in finding the location of Okura. From their website we asked directions from our home in Indio and the final directions had us at a completely wrong corner of Hwy. 111 and Washington. Luckily the wife's cell phone saved the day or we would never have found the place. She said just "SUSHI RESTAURANT" into the phone as we sat confused in the car and, Eurika, it gave us the location and phone number of OKURA!

Went there for Mother's Day dinner with a party of ten. We did the all you can eat because we are pretty big sushi eaters. Well worth the money! Everything tasted fresh and delicious!

Sushi at its best
While there are a lot of good sushi places in the desert, there are only a handful of OUTSTANDING sushi places, and Okura is one of those. You can always rest assured that you will be getting the freshest fish in the desert, top quality products, presentation at its best and great service. Prices are, for sushi in the desert, are reasonable especially when you consider the quality of the fish. They do offer an all-you-can-eat menu as well, which has a great selection. This is definitely one of my favorites in the desert.

It was a delicious dinner. (We would have liked the sushi and sashimi to be a little colder in temperature, though.)

Cousin's Night Out
I met my cousin at Okura. We try to get together 3-4 times a year. She loves sushi, as do I. She had never been to Okura. The atmosphere was intimate, but still lively. We got the all you can eat menu, which has a great assortment of sushi and appetizers. Everything was fresh and delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive. I can't wait to go back.

We always love the food here and find the all-you-can-eat menu to our liking: varied and reasonably priced. This time, the portions were tiny on the hamachi carpaccio and the beef carpaccio as well. It was a little embarrassing to share these with the friends we brought along. All the other choices were well-presented and delicious--just as we expected. Okura's Dynamite Rock Shrimp and Baked Alaska are always outstanding. We went on a Tuesday to avoid a noisy weekend crowd. However, it was still too noisy for our wish to relax and talk with friends.

Perfect Sushi Spot
The restaurant is decorated nicely and there was plenty of parking. We were seated right away and our server Hiroko was great! She explained the menu gave great recommendations to start with. She is knowledgeable about the menu and described several items in detail. The fish is very fresh and the presentation of food is beautiful. The seaweed salad and cucumber salad are great starters and we loved the Fire Cracker. My favorite was the fish carpaccio. Both are delicious but the yellowtail is amazing! I was so full, but ordered one more because it was so delicious. The service here was excellent from everyone. Our empty dishes were promptly cleared by staff and everyone is very gracious. We will return!

Quality food and must deal
Quality food and must deal with erratic service. Staff is pleasant, however you must flag down a server to take order and re-orders.

Good food well served with
Good food well served with some unique selections, a nice atmosphere and decor. The only negative to my experience (not my first time at the restaurant) is the noise level. If you want a quiet place for converstation... this is not the place. However if you want a lively fun place give this a try.
