About OKA

Please note that OKA can only hold your table for 15 minutes

Regent Park Road isn’t necessarily Londoner’s first though for eating out, but in distinguishing itself as an unassuming local eatery, the team at OKA are doing a good job preserving the best-keep-secret vibe that has made the restaurant’s name. Offering a broad interpretation of the best of Asian dining, as well as a serious sushi offering, has meant that this Primrose Hill favourite has garnered favour with the locals and those with an inside line on great Asian food in the city.

Further Information

OKA is a thoroughly north London pan-Asian restaurant, awash with pared back rustic touches and chic minimalism along Regents Park Road. This tiny restaurant offers a little insight in to how eating out works in big Asian cities. Sure, London’s pretty busy, but it’s got nothing on Tokyo, for example. OKA is a tiny, hole in the wall joint, and as such, reservations are limited to 90 minutes for two diners and 120 minutes for groups of four. Don’t let that deter you, this is how it's done in Asia. The restaurant is a textbook example of how an understated dining room can be the most effective backdrop for truly colourful food. At OKA, that food is a riot of colour, courtesy of their generous pan-Asian menu with a firm skew towards sushi. For those local to Primrose Hill, this won’t be news, as the restaurant has already established itself as the home of a properly comprehensive Asian menu in this part of Camden.

There should be no confusion about the idea of pan-Asian, however. OKA is a affirmably a pan-Asian restaurant and not a fusion restaurant. The kitchen team draw on cuisines from across the Asian continent and produce dishes which honour the way they are enjoyed in their native home – there’s no mash up of sushi and curry here. Expect to find a sushi menu that offers old favourites like salmon and avocado nigiri and unagi rolls, as well as interesting takes of Korean dishes like bulgogi beef and Indian-inspired chilli sambal chicken. Regents Road on Primrose Hill is an unlikely home for a restaurant of OKA’s calibre, but that hasn’t deterred their fans.

This always full restaurant offers fusion cooking of the highest order. Everything is freshly prepared and ,as is crucial with a cuisine reliant on raw fish,the ingredients are of the highest quality. The lunch menu is a bargain.

Great food, great service! My friend arrived 30 minutes late on a busy Friday evening and they didn't make a fuss, which was much appreciated.

As always we had a wonderful meal and great service. The tuna tataki with truffle is amazing, as is the dragon roll. My kids love the chicken and salmon and teriyaki and we all love the cookie dough with coconut ice cream. The room is lovely and cozy but you need to book as not many tables.

I go to Oka regularly and am never disappointed. The sushi is excellent and the cookie dough and coconut ice cream is my favourite dessert ever. The staff are always friendly and efficient and the little restaurant is very cosy. I love this place!

Restaurant superb - but you confirmed we had a table when we didn't ! We arrived to be told they were full and they hadn't confirmed they had a table. They were very good and found us one, even though they were booked out.

A perfect evening. Lovely friendly proprietor and great staff. Spider rolls were to die for. Very prompt service. Only issues I can think of were the leaky soy sauce bottles and splintered chop sticks but this did not detract from the meal in anyway.

Had a great lunch at Oka with my daughter who is vegan. It can accommodate various requirements but also is lovely. Very nice service and cute place. Definitely have to book ahead if you want a table. On top of it you can also have takeaways which can be great.
