    Like all other reviews here, moody staff with a not pleasant approach to customers. Not sure if its only towards taste card members or all. However, the food was delicious and made our night pleasant. Few tips if you are visiting. 1) Set your expectations from the staff to low. 2) Tell them in advance that you have taste card so that they can explain you the items excluded. 3) Order all at once, otherwise the staff will not be available even if you are the only customer. 4) The more you speak the more they get irritated. Well I have this theory that they don't smile cz that helps them from the language barrier as you don't ask too many questions to an angry person. 5) Service charge is already included in the bill as 10%! . Having said all these enjoy the great food with a nice background music. "

    " I had read some reviews about the slightly cold welcome and I have to agree it's true... We were the only people in the restaurant at the time so I would have thought the staff would be happier for our arrival. However, the food made up for it so I would still return. The portions are large and the taste and quality very good. We had a mixture of sushi and noodle dishes. The green tea was also really good. Using the tastecard was quite easy as they pointed out what was included when we sat down. A number of things are not included but the tastecard summary indicated this so we were not disappointed. "

    The service could be improved. I gave just a 5 out of 10. It was as mentioned by previous reviewers - eerie & quite uncomfortable. This was unlike my 1st visit. We were led to the sunken table area but in silence, no smile at all from the male attendant & we felt quite uncomfortable!
    Please Okawari do improve on your service and smile. Don't expect chit-chat but smiles work wonders! "

The price is also a pleasant surprise, we left feeling like we got amazing value considering the quality and amount of food. It's way better than Wagamama and we've tried quite a few dishes - love the gyozas and teriyaki chicken! I wanna go back there now. "

    Reserved 30mins beforehand no problem. Portions were huge and tasty but nothing to sing about. 2 starters 2 mains and 2 beers came to £24.. We gave a £7 tip even though service was just okay because the end price was so reasonable. Would go again but not as a planned outing because it didn't stand out in any one section.. just a very good reasonable deal for hungry people looking for something different. In that category, it's a winner. "

    My first time to a Japanese in this country. Pleasantly surprised. Would not have found Okawari without it on the Tastecard website. A long way for me to drive to Okawari but well worth the journey.

    The staff were really friendly, quietly and eager to please their guests.

    A large variety of choice on their menu. As I am not familiar with Japanese food, it took me a little while to select my choices but the waiter & waitresses were very patient. We ordered gyozas, spicy octopus salad and some sushi for starters, Salmon Tepanyaki with rice, noodles Tepanyaki with grilled prawns. The seafood was fresh - my companion is very critical about freshness of seafood, so ticked our boxes.
    We round up our meal with Red Bean pancakes and Banana Tempura with ice cream for desert.

    Would I come again? Definitely
    Will I order the same items again? Yes but will definitely try other items on their menu.
    Will I recommend Okawari to my friends? Definitely YES

    Note: Bento boxes are not on offer for tastecards.
    I also want to say that without Tastecards, I would not have discovered this and many other eating places. Thanks. "

    We were met with not-so-warm service. There was an eerie awkwardness in table-servers. Much akin to the arrival of an uninvited guest immediately after a fight with one's spouse.

    Our expectations from food dropped after the cold welcome. But, we were pleasantly surprised. "

  • "Just had an amazing meal at Okawari! We rung up to book a table at 7pm for 8.30pm beacause we had tastecard and it was no problem at all. When we arrived we were seated promptly in the 'tatami' area (sunken area) which was nice compared to usual to tables. Our waitress (nice girl wearing glasses) handed over our menus and explained the tastecard (241) was across all courses and she gave us ample time to decide what we wanted. We ordered - Starters - Chicken Kara-age wings & Agedashi Tofu. The wings were crispy and the tofu was good quality, both were piping hot and tasty. Mains - Ten don & Fish cutlet curry. First of all we were impressed that they had fish cutlet curry on the menu to choose from as we have been to a fair share of resturants and have never seen this on the menu. Okawari has quite a few dishes on the menu which seperates it from the rest of the Japanese Resturants. The curry's presentation was lovely - rice, salad, fish and a cute bowl of curry sauce with potatoes & carrots. The fish was a decent size and meaty. The ten don was also nice, tempura was nice a crisp with a good selection of vegetables included and a generous portion of rice. Sashimi - 2x Standard Sashimi. 6 pieces, 2 Salmon 2 Mackerel & 2 Tuna Sashimi was fresh and was sliced thickly. Dessert - Green tea icecream & Sesame icecream. You get 2 scoops per portion so not stingy at all, we have been to some resturants where they just give you one scoop! Nice and creamy! Delicious end to our meal! Drinks - 2x Green tea. Traditional green tea - was refilled by the waitresses without us having to chase them to do so. Okawari is definetly a hidden gem in Ealing! I did think twice writing a review because I didnt want people finding out about this place but that would be unfair. The decor I only gave 9 out of 10 because I do think they can improve on that, maybe some Japanese instrumental music in the background and more effort on the decorations, but you come for the food really! I hope Okawari continues their great service and food standard. It was very good value for money and the food was brilliant, we will definetly be back and I am pretty sure it will become one of our firm favourites. Recommended! Mary and Johnny "

Excellent service, very attentive staff and superb Japanese food – the Salmon Teriyaki is to die for and we love tatami seating. Be sure to book - it’s now very popular! Margaret "

  • "Visited this restaurant in June 2011. I took the advice of Pauline and ordered a Bento Box, I went for the Beef Teriyaki option as did my partner. The Bento Box is superb value for money, in the box you receive a main with rice, salad, another coleslaw type salad, 3 pieces of sushi and a miso soup to start, all of it was well cooked/prepared and tasted delicious. The service is attentive, continuously coming over to refill our green tea and the staff in general are very pleasant and always smiling. I'm not a big fan of the decor of the restaurant, it is definitely lacking in character, it could do with some darker tones and some nice quiet Japanese music, although it's also very much a family destination at the same time. The bill came to under £14, not including service so a bargain! I'll definitely be going back. Junez "

There is a lot of choice on the menu even for non sushi and sashimi eaters. The 2 for 1 is on most of the menu apart from individual sushi, sashimi and nigiri dishes which is a shame but you can still have sushi and sashimi sets and they have brilliant bento boxes which are great value and really tasty! Would definitely recommend :) Pauline   "

The price is also a pleasant surprise, we left feeling like we got amazing value considering the quality and amount of food. It's way better than Wagamama and we've tried quite a few dishes - love the gyozas and teriyaki chicken! I wanna go back there now. "

    Reserved 30mins beforehand no problem. Portions were huge and tasty but nothing to sing about. 2 starters 2 mains and 2 beers came to £24.. We gave a £7 tip even though service was just okay because the end price was so reasonable. Would go again but not as a planned outing because it didn't stand out in any one section.. just a very good reasonable deal for hungry people looking for something different. In that category, it's a winner. "

    I really like this place. The sushi portions are generous (even the tuna sashimi which Sushi restaurant often skrimp on) and the noodles are delicious.

    I have seen some negative reviews about service- I have been in a few times now and although the staff come across as a bit timid they are polite and attentive. You even get green tea while waiting for a takeaway. "

    My first time to a Japanese in this country. Pleasantly surprised. Would not have found Okawari without it on the Tastecard website. A long way for me to drive to Okawari but well worth the journey.

    The staff were really friendly, quietly and eager to please their guests.

    A large variety of choice on their menu. As I am not familiar with Japanese food, it took me a little while to select my choices but the waiter & waitresses were very patient. We ordered gyozas, spicy octopus salad and some sushi for starters, Salmon Tepanyaki with rice, noodles Tepanyaki with grilled prawns. The seafood was fresh - my companion is very critical about freshness of seafood, so ticked our boxes.
    We round up our meal with Red Bean pancakes and Banana Tempura with ice cream for desert.

    Would I come again? Definitely
    Will I order the same items again? Yes but will definitely try other items on their menu.
    Will I recommend Okawari to my friends? Definitely YES

    Note: Bento boxes are not on offer for tastecards.
    I also want to say that without Tastecards, I would not have discovered this and many other eating places. Thanks. "

    We were met with not-so-warm service. There was an eerie awkwardness in table-servers. Much akin to the arrival of an uninvited guest immediately after a fight with one's spouse.

    Our expectations from food dropped after the cold welcome. But, we were pleasantly surprised. "

  • "Just had an amazing meal at Okawari! We rung up to book a table at 7pm for 8.30pm beacause we had tastecard and it was no problem at all. When we arrived we were seated promptly in the 'tatami' area (sunken area) which was nice compared to usual to tables. Our waitress (nice girl wearing glasses) handed over our menus and explained the tastecard (241) was across all courses and she gave us ample time to decide what we wanted. We ordered - Starters - Chicken Kara-age wings & Agedashi Tofu. The wings were crispy and the tofu was good quality, both were piping hot and tasty. Mains - Ten don & Fish cutlet curry. First of all we were impressed that they had fish cutlet curry on the menu to choose from as we have been to a fair share of resturants and have never seen this on the menu. Okawari has quite a few dishes on the menu which seperates it from the rest of the Japanese Resturants. The curry's presentation was lovely - rice, salad, fish and a cute bowl of curry sauce with potatoes & carrots. The fish was a decent size and meaty. The ten don was also nice, tempura was nice a crisp with a good selection of vegetables included and a generous portion of rice. Sashimi - 2x Standard Sashimi. 6 pieces, 2 Salmon 2 Mackerel & 2 Tuna Sashimi was fresh and was sliced thickly. Dessert - Green tea icecream & Sesame icecream. You get 2 scoops per portion so not stingy at all, we have been to some resturants where they just give you one scoop! Nice and creamy! Delicious end to our meal! Drinks - 2x Green tea. Traditional green tea - was refilled by the waitresses without us having to chase them to do so. Okawari is definetly a hidden gem in Ealing! I did think twice writing a review because I didnt want people finding out about this place but that would be unfair. The decor I only gave 9 out of 10 because I do think they can improve on that, maybe some Japanese instrumental music in the background and more effort on the decorations, but you come for the food really! I hope Okawari continues their great service and food standard. It was very good value for money and the food was brilliant, we will definetly be back and I am pretty sure it will become one of our firm favourites. Recommended! Mary and Johnny "

  • "Okawari was already mine and my daughter's, favourite restaurant, but now it takes tastecard it’s even more so and we go there most weeks. Excellent service, very attentive staff and superb Japanese food – the Salmon Teriyaki is to die for and we love tatami seating. Be sure to book - it’s now very popular! Margaret "

  • "Visited this restaurant in June 2011. I took the advice of Pauline and ordered a Bento Box, I went for the Beef Teriyaki option as did my partner. The Bento Box is superb value for money, in the box you receive a main with rice, salad, another coleslaw type salad, 3 pieces of sushi and a miso soup to start, all of it was well cooked/prepared and tasted delicious. The service is attentive, continuously coming over to refill our green tea and the staff in general are very pleasant and always smiling. I'm not a big fan of the decor of the restaurant, it is definitely lacking in character, it could do with some darker tones and some nice quiet Japanese music, although it's also very much a family destination at the same time. The bill came to under £14, not including service so a bargain! I'll definitely be going back. Junez "

  • "Went to Okawari earlier this week after finding it had joined the tastecard (it's already a favourite of mine!) All the staff are really friendly and accommodating. There is a lot of choice on the menu even for non sushi and sashimi eaters. The 2 for 1 is on most of the menu apart from individual sushi, sashimi and nigiri dishes which is a shame but you can still have sushi and sashimi sets and they have brilliant bento boxes which are great value and really tasty! Would definitely recommend :) Pauline   "
