Food Lacking flavor
Food was plentiful compared with other hibachi restaurants in the area. You won't leave Ooka feeling hungry though. We orderd a sushi roll and tempura appetizer. The sushi was definitely some of the best I've had in the area. While the food was plentiful it lacked in flavor. Not sure if this was due to being combined with a foursome with (2) kids or not, but the food really was lacking flavor. Falling short overall in my opinion. Needed more garlic and seasoning.

The sushi is the best I've ever had and it will keep me coming back. With that being said, each time I dine there the service always leaves something to be desired. The hostess's often appear to be confused or overwhelmed, often needing the manager to assist them. It also appears that the servers are given more tables than they can adequately tend to, and on many occasions managers are left to refilling your drinks and making sure all is well. If you expect prompt service from the moment you sit down then you will not be pleased by this restaurant. Also, once your waiter takes your order, don't expect to see him or her until well after you have finished your food.

Review for the restaurant side not the hibachi side. If you want city quality in the burbs this place is it. 2nd time eating hear in the past 3 months and everything has been very good to great. Don't leave without trying one if the chefs signature rolls.

Another Good Dinner at Ooka
Again, enjoyed our dinner at Ooka, was seated immediately upon arrival. My seared scallops with brown rice was well done, and my mom continues to enjoy the tempura soba - I think it's an entree under $15, and is a large meal. Our server was very attentive and helpful. Only minor issue was that our miso soup was delivered with the meal vs. before, which is my preference. I think someone had forgotten to give it to us, as I asked our server, and just after that, it arrived.

First time in a sushi restaurant
I had eaten sushi but not in a formal dining setting. My daughter guided me through the menu and ordered for both of us. Everything was delicious. I wish I had been a more informed sushi diner or the server had assisted us with how to savor the subtle flavors that the chef had infused into the food - rather than just put down wasabi, ginger, and soy and basically say " dig in".
Still, a very good dining experience.

We ended up here by accident and really enjoyed it. They had a very nice menu and even a great kids option.

Great food & atmosphere
We went to the Hibachi Grille, and had a great time. The chef was entertaining, and food was great. If you like seafood, the oysters are fantastic.

Ooka is great for their hibachi....we took our three children and they had a great time!

Great dining experience
Only have been here once before, but the food was fantastic both times. Portions seem small but are quite filling. The atmosphere is great for couples, friends, and family. Definitely recommended.

Ooka in Montgomeryville
The food, ambiance, and service at Ooka are top notch. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful - suggesting dishes and very prompt when we had a request. The hibachi chef was friendly, funny, and knew his stuff! This was our second time there, and we'll be back.

Hibachi grill: good, loud, fun!
Great place to go on a double date or family outing. It's exciting, fun, a novelty. Sometimes it's hard to hear others sitting on the same side of the table, but there is plenty of corner space to see everyone, and it's the perfect place to whoop, laugh, and squeal!

we were seated immediately, it was not noisy, and the food was great! Will come back again and again. ps. the sake is strong so be careful!

Nice but expensive
The best restaurant in the area. Very good food, but it comes at a price too.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had never been to a Hibachi place before and I was very impressed with everything! The food was great and the "cook" (I'm not sure if they're called anything special) was fun and entertaining. I had a great experience and I highly recommend people come here for special occasions, or any occasion really. I also think it would be a lot of fun to come here with a large group. But overall everything was great!

This was our 3 rd time there.

Food was delicious
I went with my girlfriend last week, we go every once in awhile, mainly on special occasions to the hibachi side. I have never had a bad experience, we always get the same entree, both get ooka 2 combination, which is filet, shrimp, and scallops, it comes with white or brown rice, noodles, soup, and salad, we substitute the white rice for fried rice. The meal in itself is amazing and the entertainment portion is always a joy to watch. We sat with this other family who had little kids and little kids are always love the chefs. We, also, got two appetizers the apple jack sushi roll and shrimp tempura, again both were very tasty and the dipping sauce for shrimp tempura was out of this world. I would highly recommend it for anyone.

I have only been to the hibachi(numerous times) and love it. Enjoy watching the food cook and get to my plate hot as can be. I love the generous portions. The steak has always been done just right. Very enjoyable place to eat and enjoy the company of others. Never been disappointed.

Have a wonderful time and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend.

We had the chef's selection which was excellent (we were warned that the portions would be small).
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their Omakase (chefs tasting menu) is one of the best values in eating out for foodies. It's great presentations, variety, and especially taste. It's a tremendous value as well at $45. Courses included sushi, sashimi, cooked fish, oysters and ever spare ribs. Everything was delicious. The service was great also.

Good Food and Atmosphere
The food was good and the atmosphere was modern. Service was good and looking forward to going back again.

One of our favorite places
This is one of our go-to restaurants for special occasions (or just because). My daughter is a picky eater but loves the hibachi chicken and veggies. It's very entertaining and fun to watch. The portion is large for the hibachi meal and the quality is excellent. It's a bit expensive but we feel it is worth it.

Was very good
We had a great time
The food and service was good. Our server was very rushed...she was handling a big section by herself but she did a good job.

I brought my husband her for
I brought my husband her for a birthday dinner celebration. We were seating immediately in the dining area. They have a great wine list and an extensive menu. We decided on 3 types of sushi, all from their specialty section. They were all fabulous. This place has the best sushi in the area!! We had pumpkin creme brûlée for dessert, which was also delicious. It's is a little pricey, but totally worth it. We will definitely be back!!

Diner at Ooka
Great variety of different quality dishes and knowledgable staff. We will be back!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was not bad. Food was great and our server was very nice and quick. I wrote in my reservation that it was my bday so I had hoped that some attention would have been brought to that but no biggie.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The shrimp & scallop dish from the regular menu and the sea bass special were excellent. Just the right portions. Servers were friendly and timely. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Would definitely return and highly recommend.

Almost too good to be true. Almost.
We ate as a group of 6 and had a wonderful experience. We had a minor hiccup in that one of the guests did not want sushi and ordered a chicken dish, instead. Unfortunately, we never received that meal and eventually had them remove it from the bill. They did compensate us appropriately for the inconvenience with a discounted bill, which I feel was respectable. The service, otherwise, is exceptional. The bar scene is fabulous. I would recommend Ooka for anyone looking to meet with friends in a place where it is loud enough that you can clang some glasses without head turns.

Great for groups
Always a fun time at Ooka! Great for groups to get together and celebrate!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
OOKA is a really great place for about 6-8 people, especially at their hibachi tables.
