To Yoshiki and Naoko Sakane, owners of OCO TIME and ITac2S TIME in downtown Ukiah, the OCO is a symbol of growing up in post W.W. II Japan. The OCO parlors were warm, friendly places and the OCO snack was yummy and cheap. Hiroshima had become a center for peace education and celebration. As children, Yoshiki and Naoko visited the Hiroshima Peace Park and were immersed in a peace curriculum at school. They eventually traveled to the U.S. landing in the Bay Area and continued to be involved in peace activities. Yoshiki worked for five years in a Japanese restaurant in Berkeley before the young family moved to Upper Lake to try out country living.
I have had the fortune to eat a couple of times at Oco Time without having made a reservation. One of these times I had to sit at the bar with my friend and enjoyed a sushi dish with the misu soup. GREAT place to eat wheather it be at the bar or at at table.
Oco Time is a wonderful place. The sushi is fabulous, and the people who work there are delightful. I have eaten there many times, and have enjoyed every dish. Try the dragon roll and the spider roll first. This is a world-class sushi restaurant -- what a treat for Ukiah.
Remember to make reservations for dinner -- they are usually pretty busy. If you just want to grab some sushi and go, they have opened a take-out place next door.
A favorite spot for exceptional vegan/vegetarian food. Mouthwatering, fresh, unique flavors. I'm a local, and dine there often. The service is consistently gracious, professional, and prompt without making guests feel rushed. Decor is simple, fresh, and gives an open, airy feeling in spite of the small space.
Call ahead for reservations on the weekend--it's a very popular spot.
