  • Diner done up like a little beach shack. Okinawan food is influenced by Chinese and Thai cuisine; their specialty here is definitely the large melting slabs of pork belly braised in soy sauce.
  • Fried chicken was lightly battered, & comes w a dipping sauce. Special!
  • Unique Jap treat! Unlike raw servings like sashimi, Okinawan cuisine is cooked. We enjoyed all recommendations: simmered pork belly (& noodle), fried bitter gourd, fried chicken, simmered eggplant
  • The stewed pork belly is as good as they claim. Also try the awamori (Okinawan liquour) too.
  • Signature dishes are the pork ribs, stewed pork and fried bittergourd. All delicious. Burst of collagen with the roasted pork ribs. Their stewed pork is done only with shoyu, unlike our Lor bak
  • Great place, nice atmosphere and feels like Okinawa.
  • Bittergourd chips are great.
  • The silky gourd, with minced pork is divine. Smoky, sweet, salty. I could eat it every day. OK...I cant, but u get the point.
  • Unique Japanese food. Clean and flavourful dishes, pretty large portions. Minced beef and pork cutlets, ladies fingers and peanut beancurd, kimchee belly pork were great.
  • Okinawa was my favorite diving spot when I lived in Japan. Have been craving for Okinawan since I moved to New York. It was worth using one of my dinner slots while visiting Singapore to eat here!
  • Last order varies. They close at 11 but last order is usually 10. Arrived at 9.48pm and was told by staff that they've stopped last orders for the day.
  • Their tofu and noodles are particularly good
  • Back here after 2 years and things have certainly changed. Ordered the kimchi pork belly and the portion has shrunk by half, with more kimchi than pork. Same thing with the bittergourd with pork.
  • This place is a gem! Had the bittergourd set. They removed all the pork for me to accommodate my dietary restrictions. The ambience takes me straight to Okinawa. The food is legit!
  • Love Okinawa rice! Nice flavor together wth lovely taste Orion beer. Not bitter like Asahi. Just nice for dinner :)
  • Pretty authentic jap food here. I had the bitter gourd and pork set. Yummy!
  • Love the delicate nutty peanut bean curd that comes with the set meal. Do come early for the Okinawan soup ramen. Sold out when I was there on a weekend at 2ish pm
  • Hamburger steak and fried bittergourd
  • The Japanese beef hamburger steak is a must try!
