Oka, Chelsea

There are two places I will go to when I am on the King’s Road when I want Asian food. One is Eight Over Eight for sure and the other is Oka. It’s a cute little place, more for the casual visitor, but still offering amazing food. In this small chic spot people are just concerned with good food. Between the yummy mummies and yoga pals, you can settle and eat some darn good food.

The usual pan-Asian affair appears here with sushi, sashimi and hot dishes like beef teppanyaki, miso soup and black cod. All these options look fabulous as they pass you on their way to their destination table.

For our visit, we started with pepper salt squid served with sweet chilli mayo and a portion of vegetable tempura. For mains we shared a miso black cod. For the black cod – it was a really good portion size. All was well priced, but was is additionally unbelievable is that they offer a fantastic lunch set menu for £11.50 with some great options for the lunchtime lover of pan-Asian – dishes include salmon sashimi, crispy duck salad and tempura Sea Bass – definitely one to try.

This comfortable spot is lovely for a lunch time out. Not sure what it is like in the evening, but that period is firmly reserved for Eight Over Eight.
