Excellent food, quick service, great atmosphere. Beer also reasonably priced!
Food is absolutely amazing and the portions are very generous. Quite cold next to the door and the staff seemed to all be hosting, cooking and serving. But that added to the energy if anything!
I LOVE Okan Brixton East!!! food is best Japanese Ive had outside of Japan and all the restaurants in the family have a different take. all great.
Particularly reccomentd the Chilli Tan Tan mein Ramen and Kareage Chicken - Obsessed!
Great food, great ambience and great value. What more could you ask for.
Can’t believe we have only just found this absolute gem! Best Japanese food we have had in London. A new favourite for sure.
Great place to eat and lovely food. Interior didn't quite match the outside/their website so was slightly disappointed by this but once you look past that, it was a great meal out. Thanks Okan!
Fantastic food as always. I will be back in the future.
Really great food but they could be better at helping you understand the items on the menu such as the specials etc.
Uninterested and inattentive service, despite not being busy, but good food. Will get delivery in the future!
I love going to Okan. Dinner out is a bit of a rare treat with Covid and a toddler at home so we made sure we went to our favourite place to eat.
Good value, unbeatable food, nice place to sit and the super cold draught Asahi! I love the place.
Visited this little restaurant on Saturday. Great service and great food. Would definitely recommend 👌
Average food but very fresh and quick service. Venue quite small and very intimate
The most authentic Japanese food in South London. The ramen is amazing, ice cold Asahi beers served in cold glasses. Service is always top too. This is the spot.
Absolutely delicious food and cocktails!
Always great and even better with new menu as more options
A great range of delicious, authentic Japanese dishes with plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans. Service is friendly and efficient - looking forward to my next visit!
We got super lucky to book a table last minute and we were not disappointed.
The food is amazing and I can’t wait to come back. I’ve been craving it since we left the restaurant.
The food is soo good here, we’re happy this place is close to home. But we don’t find the waiters as sweet as the Mochi ice creams they serve. That’s one thing they should improve.
Lovely to be back at Okan’s ramen place, 5 min east of Brixton Village. Same authentic Japanese taste and relaxed Osaka vibe, but quieter (for now...)
Great food as in the original Brixton market site but it seems the prices have jumped. £13.50 for Okanimiyaki with chicken? In a bare bones ambience free area on a not very nice section of Coldharbour Lane? Plus the chicken Katsu with three small pieces of chicken. Disappointing after all of the wonderful, reasonably priced meals in the original. Won’t be in a hurry to return, which is a shame as this one takes bookings.
Amazing place. Outstanding restaurant, delicious dishes. Absolutely must.
A favourite local for a casual mid-week meal out. They've made some changes to make everything covid-19 safe.
This place is the best, staff are top notch aswell.
Delicious food at a good price in unfussy (if clattery) setting. Face masks and clatter don’t mix well! I’m looking forward to going back - the staff were really nice, helpful and the food delicious and swiftly brought (despite warning us it might be slow). It felt like a real treat to eat so well! I recommend the sweet plum wine on ice - one to savour sip by sip
Great food, clean and responsible dinning. The staff were awesome.
The food here is outstanding and really reminds me of Tokyo! My partner and I ordered the Takoyaki and it was absolutely delicious. Light fluffy balls of octopus with yummy sauce on top. We also had the squid karaage and I would definitely recommend it. Perfect appetizer portion and the breading was just right. Not too mushy, not too crunchy. Finally, we shared the okonomiyaki with pork. It was a little different from the Osaka version that I remember, but it was excellent nonetheless. Good size, lots of cabbage, and the pork was laid on top so you got a good piece with every bite. I'd definitely go back. The service was a bit slow to get started even though we were the only ones there. But then it picked up, so it wouldn't deter me from going back.
First time and really loved it. Loved the options on the menu and the portions were great!
Really enjoyed each dish and they were all unique. In particular, liked the fried squid and the Okanomanyaki. Will come back at some point
Amazing service and food! They let us stay drinking and catching up outside until closing, great evening. !
Cute little place, I've never seen gluten free ramen before. Some awesome beers.
always an enjoyable, authentic experience - even with space restrictions
Ramen was good, as were the appetizers. Aubergine bao was a bit underwhelming. Service was great.
Simple menu, all great stuff and some good drinks to boot!
Their menu isn’t available on their website. I had tofu “karaagedon” which was deep fried tofu with rice. It was too salty for me and I did not enjoy it. My friends seemed to enjoy their dishes. I wouldn’t go back personally.
The food was for the most part delicious! I would recommend the a
Squid balls and prawn dim sam, the gyozas looked good but failed the taste test. The noodles were very good and I would recommend their first option of tokyo style udon. However, found hair in the first udon they brought over and none of the chefs were wearing hair nets. The bowl was quickly replaced and the dish deeply enjoyed :) I might try the donburi on my next visit.
Homely and friendly with yummy food. Couldn't be a better japanese experience.
Fantastic food, lovely service and cosy space. All the dishes we ordered were delicious- very high quality Japanese food.
Great service and great food. Highly recommend. Ramen and ambience are authentic.
