    My boyfriend wanted to visit here for awhile so I caved and let him. I made reservations online and had no issues thru opentable. We arrived early and were greeted somewhat nicely by the host and led to our table which was a little low.( I'm a bit tall though) our waiter came andintroduced himself an told us about the tasting menu,we looked over the menu asked if we could order our appetizer first then grab a few different sushi rolls. Everything we ordered was perfect from the duck sous-vide to dessert was a palette seeing moment. I will return again with or without the boyfriend.

    Ooka is not a cheap restaurant. However, we so enjoy the sushi there that, for special occasions, we think it's worth the price tag. Food is always very very good, with good service.

    We have dined at Ooka a number of times and we have never been disappointed with any aspect. The menu has a vast variety of choices of authentic Japanese cuisine and always good quality. I feel well qualified to comment as I have visited Japan more than 75 times over the years and my wife is Japanese and, as such is, a fastidious person when it comes to choosing a Japanese restaurant. Its always Ooka Montgomeryville.

    I took my beautiful girlfriend here and the entire time she looked around in amazement at the ambience and the beautiful tranquil setting (although it was loud due to the hibachi grill, which I must say is fantastic!). The food was fresh being an avid fisherman and testing my catches on the spot this is the best I've had in awhile! The rolls are fresh moist and full of flavor. If you're a beginner i recommend the rainbow roll or the baked Philadelphia roll. The presentation when our server brought it out was perfect. the smile on my dates face and the sparkle in her eye let me know I picked the perfect dinner on our final night together before college. If you love sushi, if you love The person you bring, you Will LOVE this restaurant.

    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 :)
