Food was great as always. Had a bad experience however from a service perspective. Inattentive waiter. Missing for 15-20 minutes at a time. Not following up with kitchen for timeliness and accuracy of order both of which went very wrong. Runners were not briefed or order not flagged correctly for who ordered what. Had to quiz everyone at the table to get it right. Brought food hat was for another table etc. First time we ad this type of experience after several visits so maybe an anomaly but certainly worth noting as it was just that bad. Probably also woth noting that when I brought the missing waiter to the attention of the reception staff, they did not escalate to a manger and appeared there may not have been anyone running the place at the time that was older than 21.

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.

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.
