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.

Wonderful dinner with great service. Alex is great. He went over the specials and recommended food and drinks to us. Alex is very knowledgeable and knew the menu well. He made the meal that much better. Ask for Alex when you dine in the main section.

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.

While the ambience and service was good, we were extremely disappointed with the food. We went for the hot entrées, which were lacking in flavor; the active ingredient being salt!

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.

This is by far our favorite restaurant in the lansdale/montgomeryville area. We visit the area frequently, and try and come to Ooka at least once a quarter. We are never disappointed. It's all about their sauces/broths, and they are tremendous.

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!!

Very busy but we were seated right away. They even called and left a message as we were about 10 minutes late. Seating can be a little tight if the table is at capacity. Entertaining Hibachi chef but at that time of night (8pm) just give me my food. Will definitely be back.

We are loyal repeat patrons and chose to celebrate our anniversary on a Friday evening. We were squeezed between other couples at a small table and it took 10 minutes for a server to acknowledge us, with another 10 minutes to receive water/drinks. Disappointing and not romantic...at all. Our server tried to make up for it and did serve complimentary champagne at end of meal. Will think twice about celebrating there again...shame because food is good!

This is our favorite sushi joint! We always sit at the sushi bar. Jack always serves up interesting dishes - and suggests sushi we haven't tried before. Harry is the BEST(!!) waiter around. We ask for him whenever we dine at Ooka.

Celebrating a family birthday and felt this would be fun for our group. We did hibachi, the show alone is worth it, food Was delicious. Service for drinks and desert very slow. Waited almost 15 minutes for cocktails. Noise level high and it's difficult to have a conversation. If you are looking for an intimate meal this isn't the spot. If you want good food, lively show and leftovers don't miss this place.
There is also a separate dining room if you don't want hibachi. Good variety of sushi.
We went on a Saturday night and made reservations. Without reservations you will wait.
