( Kampachi Sashimi with Hokkaido Uni)
If you go to Oya and order Omakase 18 course dinner, expecting sushi and, then you may be surprised.
You can review most of the dishes on yelp ( and certainly from this blog post as well.)
(Egg Nigiri with Beef Powder)
In a nutshell, 18 course Omakase was not sushi at all, or more than sushi. Sashimi was more like Italian Carpusshio with different types of oil and flavors. Most Nigiri were seared with the variety of toppings.
(Fried Oyesters with Squid Ink)
(Ama Ebi with Yuzu Tobiko)
(Seared Toro Nigiri)
(Anago with Thai Basil Nigiri)
So, you expect traditional Edo•Mae Nigiri; we recommend going somewhere else (or just fly to Tokyo.) Fantastic plates and impeccable service makes the 2-hour dinner go very quickly.
