    Dined on 9/16/2014
    First off, you MUST get the lychee martini - WOW. We had sea bass and scallops and the son had steak...all were wonderful - the only problem is SO MUCH FOOD! We had (shared tables) kids at our table who were really enjoying the show and even our own "i don't want to be here" 17 year old ended up having a great time. We will be back often!

    We go here often & love it. Great food. Normally good service. This time had waiter who got my son's order 100% wrong & when we sent it back he actually came over & questioned us like the fault was ours. He had just mirrored my husband's order which was odd since he even dinner. He finally got it and wolfed it down so we could leave. Not pleasant. We had to flag down bus boys to order more drinks since our waiter never approached us or asked even when he was a the table what we wanted to drink and the clincher was there was no comped anything for his error. Not even the edamame. Least he could have done!

    Went to Ooka for a birthday dinner with the hubs. First off, our waiter, Brad, was spectacular. The right amount of service, with the right amount of humor = big tip! The maki was delicious as well. Their special, blt roll, was phenomenal. Also had the Crispy! roll (a shrimp tempura) was our favorite. Then the Montgomerville role and the Philly role. All yummy! Great japanese decor. Comfortable booths. Cute bar that we will try some time. And they have a Hibachi part of the restaurant, too. Will definitely be going back :)

    We love it here. Our kids love it here. For either Sushi or for Hibachi, its consistently the best choice in the area for either. Specify in your reservations if you want to be at a hibachi table, sushi or sushi bar. If you are hibachi, and its a party group - make sure to ask for a back room table where the noise will be less from the other chefs and tables.

    I have taken my family to Ooka's to celebrate a family members birthday. Being that I had previously eaten at a hibachi restaurant in Philadelphia before I was hoping for a great presentation while preparing the food. Our server Anna was fabulous. She was attentive and frequently returned to the table to check on our needs. Our chef, who I couldn't tell you his name, was bland and lack in showmanship. Although the food was good, the restaurant "did not steal the show!" Go to Philly if you really want to be entertained.

    Delicious food, beautifully prepared and presented, and unusual menu selections (to me, at least. E.g. The filet carpaccio), along with a lychee in my Lychee Cosmopoitan made my taste buds very very happy. My daughter and I visited on a Saturday night; we had used your on-line reservation system, so we did not have to wait to be seated at all. Our server was attentive and actually remembered us from a prior visit-several weeks before. We ordered a variety of small plates. I especially enjoyed the Filet Carpaccio. And because you offer soy paper wrappers (as opposed to seaweed wrappers) for the sushi rolls i was willing to try the veggie sushi and found the two veggie rolls very tasty.

    I have been a fan of Ooka in Willow Grove for many years. The Ooka in Montgomeryville is just as good. I tend to order from the "specials" menu -- as there are always interesting choices. I got the lobster bun --- amazingly good -- fresh bun, tasty lobster, and micro greens that brought the whole thing to life. I also got the spicy tuna pizza -- to die for. I am always delighted at this place!

    We were there an a busy Sunday evening, and sat in the dining room. Our waiter was busy and seemed easily distracted. Food did not arrive quickly, but was hot and obviously freshly prepared, so that was not his fault. Food was excellent - some of the best Japanese food I've had in the area. Would recommend.

    Service was slow, never cleared our plates until the end! I had to grab new plates next to me. The chef was hurried and sloppy, the food was disappointing, My family and I have been here and plenty of other Hibachi style restaurants this was the worst experience. We were there for our 6 year old's birthday, both him and my 9 year old agreed it could have been much better

    You cannot go wrong with the Habachi tables. It is always fun and you get a pretty decent show while you eat. I think with the noodles and rice you get plenty of food. The portions look small but once you start eating you realize they aren't.

    I like the Ooka better in Doylestown. The waitress here at Montgomeryville site was terrible ...she never smiled. Our wine was not cold or chilled ...she just said more less she could not do anything about that...even after I asked her what they did have cold. She just brought us ice so we had watered down Pinot Grigio. Our dinner had limp broccoli rabe...overcooked teriyaki chicken. The desserts were skimpy...I rec Osaka in Lansdale and maybe the Ooka in Doylestown over this place.

    The food there is usually excellent. My husband is a "foodie" and said he was disappointed with the quality of the sushi rice - the vinegar ratio according to him was not up to par and the consistency of his sushi rolls was sticky, not "melt in your mouth" the way he expected. I thought everything was great but then I'm pretty easy to please :)

    Very good food. Very good service. Fresh, beautiful presentation. Ooka always is a great Japanese Sushi Meal. Would have enjoyed, a small mint, or recognition one of party's birthday dinner, dessert etc-as mentioned in the reservation-should Ooka consider such a program- a nice touch for a dining guests birthday. Very good, highly recommend.

    My wife and I made last minute reservations at Ooka without hassle. The restaurant then went the extra step and called to see where we wanted to sit, and we chose the Hibachi grill seating. We had a great time and food was incredible. Even made new friends with the people seated with us. Don't pass this place by.....

    I and my fiancee had our first experience with Ooka and it was above and beyond all expectations. I'm a celiac and our waiter, Brad, knew the menu inside and out and said all items on the menu would be made to order to not include gluten. Having been a waiter myself I can be a bit judgemental on the wait staff of a restaraunt. Brad was knowledgable and tentative the entire night and offered countless explanations to a couple with no idea what they were ordering. Besides the staff the food was amazing. Great portions and a taste only fresh ingredients could pack. I'd suggest this restaraunt to anyone that wants an upscale meal at a price that keeps your stomach and wallet full just the same.
