- FoodiesVIPDined on 8/23/2014This was our first time dining in at Ooka in Montgomerville. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our dining experience, completely. We look forward to coming back again and again.Special Features:
- Fabulous MakiDCBostonVIPDined on 8/19/2014Went 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 :)Special Features:
- just go!nmallenDined on 8/15/2014The food, the ambiance, the service..cannot speak highly enough. Options for gluten free and vegan diners.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- don't go lateSuperDined on 8/11/2014Ooka Sushi & Hibachi is a great restaurant to have a nice romantic meal with a great service, just don't go too late, chef will be tired and you will not have a good service you are expecting.Special Features:
- Helpful WaiterOpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 8/1/2014Our waiter Alex was very knowledgable and helpful since it was our first time to the restaurant. Food was very good and fresh. Will definitely go back.
- sunnygirldlwDined on 7/18/2014Our dining experience would have been a 5 if our waiter had been easier to understand and more courteous. The food was excellent and we will definately be going back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a good choice.DrFoodieVIPDined on 7/15/2014We 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.Special Features:
- yummynateykDined on 7/12/2014everything is good....period!!!!!! been going for years every meal is good whether fusion or traditionalSpecial Features:
- Ooka's Japanese RestaurantFab50thDined on 7/12/2014I 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.Special Features:
- Not happyDelakDined on 7/10/2014This used to be our favorite place to dine but after two bad experiences, we will be finding a new favorite. It's not worth the price! Service was awful and food didn't come out as ordered and some items didn't come out at all.
- Delicious food...Ta2dcatloverDined on 7/5/2014Delicious 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Awesome (as expected)TheresaHKDined on 7/1/2014I 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 6/24/2014We're not Sushi fans but we love the Hibachi!!! And it is so easy to make the reservation on Open Table!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Ooka is top notch!!!PammyDined on 6/21/2014My husband and I are long time fans of Ooka! They have 3 restaurants in the Northeast region of PA. We've been to every one and have NEVER been let down. Quality food, atmosphere and service! Try the "OMAKASE". Chef's choice, you won't be dissapointed!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent food, good serviceJDPurvisVIPDined on 6/15/2014We 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.Special Features:
- Very DissapointingDissapointingVIPDined on 6/4/2014Service 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
- great atmospheresuhshiDined on 5/25/2014it was a great time with delicious food. Hibachi was so much fun! Went with work crew and we spent the night there. Very friendly and super interactive. A great idea for parties.Special Features:
- Dependable Sushidph0020Dined on 5/25/2014Always get sushi here, never less than very good, very fresh, nice presentation. Always a solid performance.Special Features:
- Always funStunaDined on 5/24/2014You 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.Special Features:
- not that greatGriffDined on 5/24/2014I 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.
- Fun DiningLee4Dined on 5/17/2014Great place to take the family. Offers healthy dishes.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Stylish and elegantfoodnutDined on 5/16/2014The decor was very nice. The staff was friendly, and the food was excellent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 5/11/2014The 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 :)I would recommend this to a friend.
- SatisfiedDined on 5/11/2014Our reservations were for Mother's Day 2014 and the restaurant was flexible as my party was running late making our scheduled reservation time. We were able to adjust our reservations and there was no wait upon our arrival. The food was good.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WonderfulNatluvssushiDined on 5/10/2014The food was amazing, the service was perfect and the place is beautiful. I took my boyfriend out for his birthday and we had a fantastic time. We will definitely be coming back for a special occasion. It's an expensive restaurant but you get what ou pay for. Well worth it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WORSTWORSTVIPDined on 5/10/2014I LEFT THIS RESTAURANT WITHOUT EATING. Waited 1 hour for food....came out cold and under done. Staff was very blase about the situation. I eat out often, and visit this restaurant often as well. I WILL NEVER RETURN...and advise other to stay away too.
- DeliciousCatherineDined on 5/8/2014Very 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.
- snickerz824Dined on 5/7/2014A little pricey but food good. Lots of filler food...rice, miso soup, salad.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Disappointing ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/26/2014The food was delicious, but our service was extremely slow. They brought out food that was not ours, then finally brought it to the table next to us. Slow to get drinks.
- Fun NightSuperDined on 4/26/2014It's a great place to have fun with friends and family, especially with the hibachi chef's show.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OutstandingMikePDined on 4/26/2014My 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.....Special Features:
- Fun, fun, fun!Fave4SushiDined on 4/25/2014Great food ,fantastic drinks, friendly service. The restaurant was busy but not too loud, every age from mid 20s to 60s! Although large restaurant nicely sectioned so each ares feels intimate. If you're looking for great sushi, fun cocktails and somewhere local this is the place to go!Special Features:
- Decent Prices Amazing Food &Servicebryan324Dined on 4/16/2014I 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Overall great dining experience!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 4/4/2014This is the Ooka location near the Montgomeryville mall. I have to say, we had a great time overall! -The food was, as expected, superb! -The building itself was clean and neat and tidy. Restrooms were clean! -Wait staff was friendly and attentive! -Wait time was reasonable for a busy Friday evening and multiple Maki that we ordered. A+ !Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Neighborhood GemShermaineDined on 4/1/2014One of my favorite restaurants in the Lehigh Valley is Kome. One night I was chatting with the bartender and learned that Ooka was owned by the same person, so I decided to take some clients there. It was wonderful, equally as good as Kome and not at all disappointing. I live closer to Kome but if I am in the Montgomeryville area, I will definitely go back. There were 4 of us and we all shared some items and enjoyed our own as well. It was fabulous!Special Features:
- We've eaten here on multipleOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/29/2014We've eaten here on multiple occasions and have always had a delicious meal - whether hibachi or sushi - always a great experience!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Quality HibachiStephanieVIPDined on 3/25/2014We are big fans of hibachi, and we've been to Osaka (Lansdale) and Benihana (Plymouth Meeting) for hibachi many times before. This was our first time having hibachi at Ooka, and I was impressed not only the food quality, but how different the hibachi was from other places. Ooka includes soup and salad as well as two pieces of shrimp with any meal you order. They charge $3 extra for fried rice, which is a downside, and the fried rice is not chopstick friendly (not sticky). They serve noodles in addition to rice, so the double carbs are also a little odd. The meat and vegetables, however, were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The filet and scallops were excellent, and possilbly the best hibachi filet I've ever had. Highly recommend!Special Features:
- Poor coordinationnothappyDined on 3/22/2014I had made reservations a week in advance for the hibachi table. It was my son's birthday celebration. When we arrived, I was told they were getting our table ready and that it would be soon. We waited over 50 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. When we were being seated, I noticed a bunch of open tables with no one sitting at them. Why did you make us wait so long to be seated? We were all very hungry and grew impatient waiting around. The hostess kept telling us that they were getting our table ready (for 50+ minutes???!!!!!???) You could have seated us and started with drinks, salad and soup if the cook wasn't available. It was very poor coordination. It will be a long time before we visit again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
