Since moving to the west side of town I have been introduced to many restaurants I hadn’t tried before and one of my favorites is Ohjah Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi located at 10144 West Flamingo Road.
This place is unique because it’s really like three different restaurants in one. If the wife and I are in the mood for a hibachi dinner this is our go-to spot. It’s always fun to watch the hibachi chef prepare your food right in front of you while performing his tricks with the food like the volcano onion.
Ohjah has some of the best hibachi meals in town. Your basic entrée is $8.95 and consists of soup, salad, vegetable and choice of rice. You then pick what meat, chicken or seafood you want to add. Chicken is a $6.95, N.Y. Strip is $7.95, and filet is $9.95; shrimp or salmon is $7.95 just to name a few. You can add as many different types of meat, chicken or seafood as you want.
If sushi isn’t your style, you can enjoy chicken or filet Teriyaki. Lori also loves getting one of their fried rice bowls, which are enormous and very tasty. With the chicken fried rice bowl priced at $9.95 and the beef at $10.95 it is a very filling dish at a very reasonable price.
All the sushi is always fresh and there’s a great selection. You can request a la carte or order a Chef’s Choice Combo sampler. They have a five-piece tasting combo for $9.95 or you can go for the deluxe with 20 pieces for $25.95.
Ohjah has an outstanding selection of rolls. One of their signature rolls that I like is their Alaska King Crab Roll. It has king crab and avocado topped with salmon and garlic butter, baked and topped with eel sauce. Their Cowboy Roll has fresh tuna, shrimp and avocado roll, topped with sliced New York steak, torched, served with a garlic sauce.
I like to order the Blue Diamond Dinner Special for $25.95, which features two Special Rolls, chef’s choice of four pieces of Sashimi and four pieces of Nigiri. With this dish you get to try several different items. If you have a group of friends, try their Ohjah Boat consisting of three Special Rolls, chef’s choice of 12 pieces of Sashimi, 10 pieces of Nigiri and seaweed salad. It is brought to the table on a wooden boat platter.
Lastly, if I’m in the mood for noodles I will order Beef or Chicken Udon. This is a thick Japanese noodle served with vegetables and Ohjah’s house Udon sauce.
I have been to Ohjah Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi several times and loved my meal every time. The sushi is always fresh and the prices are very reasonable given the quality and portion sizes. I give Ohjah Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi a rating of 3.75 Forks.
