Okada at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas has stellar food, ambience and service. Guests have a choice between authentic teppanyaki and robata or more traditional Japanese food.
Okadaâ€™s Executive Chef Masa Ishizawa defines what it means for a chef to be passionate. You can see it in the presentation of the food, the fresh ingredients and the creativity of each dish on the menu.
Carolyn, Okadaâ€™s general manager, greets every guest like a family member and makes each person feel special. If you return, be prepared to have Chaichi remember your favorite table, cocktail and even menu items. She is remarkable!
One of our favorites is the yellowtail sashimi with chile Â salsa, for which Executive Chef Â Ishizawa has been kind enough to share the recipe. Many traditional Japanese dishes such as tempura and miso soup are featured on the menu, but one of the best dishes is the signature pork short ribs.
Or you might enjoy the wagyu beef tatami with ponzu vinaegrette that includes daikon, carrot, cucumber, red onion, chive and garlic chip. If you are in the mood for seafood, you might try the Chilean sea bass yuzu-soy sauce with shrimp, scallop, braised taro and wild mushrooms.
Sommelier Louis Hamilton will make sure your wine selection is perfectly paired with your food. Osmund Chan always goes out of his way to make each guest feel special. It’s a great team overseeing dining at Okada.
Take in the ambiance of Okada. What a surprise to walk into such a tranquil setting in the middle of a hotel. We love the table next to a floor to ceiling window that is open virtually year round. Not only is the water and landscaping feature striking, but also the sounds from the waterfall in the background are Zen like.
Clearly I am not the only person who finds Okada special. Weâ€™ve witnessed three proposals on separate occasions. Thatâ€™s the ultimate testament to a romantic setting!
