To Eat Index: By Cuisine

    To-Eat-by-Cuisine

    You’re hungry.  You’ve got a craving for sushi.  Or curry.  Or Italian.  You want to find that perfect place to eat… but where do you start?

    Thankfully, Okinawa Hai has an extensive collection of posts detailing the many restaurants, cafes, and sushi bars here on island.  This is an index of all the food establishments we have reviews and information about, listed by type of cuisine, with the type of food served and the general location following.

    Perhaps you’re in a time crunch and you’re looking for a restaurant close to home.  Luckily for you, we’ve got an index sorted by general location on Okinawa.

    And if there’s a restaurant you heard about from a friend of a friend, but you can’t remember where it is or what they serve… well, that’s why we also have a complete alphabetized index as well.

    You’ve got three great ways to figure out where you’re going for dinner tonight!  Kompai
