Ooka Japanese Sushi & Hibachi Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Awful seating set-up! We were seated at a table for two that was part of a row of two seat tables that were about six inches apart from each other. I cannot understand how anyone thought this setup would be a good dining experience for anyone. It is obvious the goal was to squeeze in as many tables as possible and no consideration for the customers. It was Valentine’s Day and we were seated at what was basically a community table. Everyone seated in the community table row had the same shocked look when seated. Fortunately the other customers were friendly and had a “we will get through this attitude”. We could not have a conversation without everyone hearing us and we could hear what everyone else was saying. The waiters banged into us when serving the food and clearing the tables. We have been to Ooka many times and always sat in a booth, I had no idea they had a cattle call area. The restaurant is too nice to have such a horrible seating arrangement that ruins the customer dining experience. It is a shame a delicious meal and holiday were ruined by the greed to setup more tables then fit comfortably.
Be wise when reserving and be sure you don’t get stuck in this horrible area. If we go back I will request a booth!
Booked a hibachi table for my family to celebrate the birthdays of our two adult sons. Party of eight included our two grandchildren. The overall experience was very good and the food and show put on by our chef was excellent. Three of us ordered different sushi plates that we were able to share (all were above average) and that turned out to be the highlight of the evening, in my opinion. As always, the alcohol pricing in places like these is more than it should be, but we are used to that. Service was excellent and the booking via Open Table turned out to work perfectly.
The restaurant was freezing, they forgot scallops and salmon to cook on the hibachi, they forgot to bring two orders of brown rice which are an up charge, they forgot to bring everyone the soup and salad. So after the main course was cooked and served they were brought over. Who wanted it then? We inquired about it, they didn’t even realize.
Ooka is one of our favorites, we've had consistently great service from regular employees. We had a new server for Christmas dinner with out of town family. He made a good effort to be helpful but git some of the order wrong. Nonetheless good food as always, everybody left full and happy. We'll gladly come again!
Ooka faces some stiff competition in the Sushi Bar arena, as there are a multitude of alternative restaurants in the Montgomeryville area that serve Japanese food.
Ooka has the benefit of a classy-looking dining establishment and creative specials, but if you're going there to simply eat sushi, their portions are not as generous as other locations (particularly when compared to nearby Umai).
Ooka's ingredients were find, but their nigiri sushi was a large serving of rice with an adequate (but not generous) covering of fish.
I'd go there again if I wanted to impress a friend with a beautiful restaurant experience, but if I want to treat them to some delicious and plentiful servings there are better places to go.
Hottest were very nice and greeted us with a smile. We were a little early so we waited at the bar. Got seated almost immediately. And dinner began. We sat next to a big family. By the end of the dinner you thought we were one big family. Great atmosphere and experience.
Had date night with my wife to get out of the house after having our 2nd child recently and Ooka was everything we were hoping for!! Our server, Alex, was personable and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and suggested some great choices!! We each had the Omakase selection which is the Chefs tasting menu, and the chef did not disappoint, with Lobster Ceviche, Kobe beef, a Salmon sashimi tasting, Sobu noodles with seared scallops and filet sous vide to end. Will definitely be going back and soon!!!
I've heard a lot of things about this restaurant so we decided to bring our family member for lunch to celebrate his birthday. The food was just O.K. The hibachi meals were salty and oily. All you could taste was the soy sauce and salt. The shrimp tempura roll I ordered wasn't as good as I've had before at other places including whole foods. The service was fine. The chef was just going through the motions and didn't seem like he was very personable. The experience was just meh. We had gone to BeniHanna another time and the chefs were so much more fun there. That's why I thought Ooka would be more engaging with the customers. I should have brought a cake because apparently Ooka doesn't have desserts. They brought out a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the birthday boy and we made do. My sister-in-law raves about this restaurant. I don't get it. I won't go back.
Ooka is one of my favorite restaurants and this experience was no different. Two of my friends had never been there and they were very impressed. Our server was very attentive without being invasive. The food was awesome and the atmosphere is great. I don't get to this location too often, but I'm always happy when I do.
Having dined at Ooka numerous times, their high standard of service and food quality never changes. The food is authentic, verified by my Japanese wife, and the serving sizes are plentiful but not too big to prevent enjoying the next course. Our 12 year old son chose Ooka for his birthday dinner, and its our favorite for all family celebrations!!
