English Reviews (Reviews Total Language : 104 reviews)
I have ate in many places in Onna and Hamanoya has got to be one of the best, no frills sort of place but with good freshly cooked food, fresh fish is on the board which can be cooked many ways,I opted for salt baked which was excellent. plenty of parking out front and just behind the libary, cold b...eer on tap.

“Cosy restaurant off the beaten track”
I'm always dubious when a local eatery is mainly patronised by tourists (from HK and Taiwan from the sound of their accents) but then again, we went after typical lunch hours past 2.30pm. Service was good. Staff can speak basic English. We had the buttered fish, a sashimi set and seagrapes, all whic...h were fresh and delicious. Pity we were a small family of two and a half (toddler in tow) so we didn't get to try to the very affordable lobster set and puffer fish as well. Bill was... JPY 4,290 inclusive of all taxes. Thumbs up.

“Not fancy, but authentic ”
We eat here every time we visit and it is a favorite spot. It is NOT fancy and looks a little shabby but it is real Okinawan food. They serve a lot of side dishes with their meals so you get a taste of some things you may not normally order. I cannot help with the menu but I always get the eel plate... and my uncle always gets a whole fish and everything always gets eaten.

“Great Japanese Restaurant in Ona Okinawa”
It is a must try if you are traveling past the area. Search for its location, plan it into your itinerary. As long as you like Japanese cuisine, you will not regret. There are already many reviews of the dishes here. So I will not repeat.

“Worst food in Okinawa”
Clearly this restaurant has changed either owners or strategy since all the great reviews have been written. Regardless if Okinawa is close to the sea, there is simply no way this food can be fresh for that price. And the portions are indeed big; that seems to prove the point. Scallops and octopus c...learly not freshly caught, the only thing that seems fresh is the salty fish which you can see in the tank when you arrive. The rest comes so fast, it’s just sure it’s already prepped and probably frozen. This is more an all you can eat type of restaurant with low prices, high quantities for tourists who look to fill a stomach for cheap. The menus being all in English is usually a dead give away that the customers are foreigners more than locals. Very disappointing... The only good thing we had was the discovery of the sea grape, the only “from Okinawa” food advertised on the menu. That should have been a clue...
