Dined for the first time a few days ago & I can already tell this will be my new favorite place. The food is absolutely amazing & the atmosphere is amazing as well. 10/10 would recommend.
Great restaurant & great server. We arrived early for our reservation and were quickly accommodated. I’m looking forward to my next outing to O-ku.
The service was great. The food was great. I am so happy we came. Thank you very much!
Always a great experience at O-Ku, it's a little dark so bring your reading glasses if you need those!
The wife & I enjoy the environment, service & food.
The sushi was very delicious and our server, Trey, was awesome!
Great food and great service. Will come back.
Udon noodles were amazing! The chef gave us a complementary salmon sashimi that was so delicious. Drinks were strong and very good. Everything was wonderful, including the service! Best service I’ve had in awhile. Lots of room to park too.
Have been there a couple of times. Awesome food, service, atmosphere. Ask for Ryan, fun times.
Went for our anniversary. Great food and service and staff was on top everything.
The quality of the sushi and the level of service at O-ku are always phenomenal. I am never disappointed dining here.
We are always pleased ever time we come here! We leave full and happy and its a great value. Thanks for always being consistent.
Date night out. Server was informative and attentive. Always a pleasure dining here.

Phenomenal food and service!
Amazing als always. Best sushi restaurant in Charlotte!
Best Sushi in town! Great drinks. Always a stroller experience.
Our experience at O-Ku was delicious and so much fun! We made a reservation for 3 people for omakase to celebrate my mom's birthday. It was totally worth it and I'd love to go again sometime. I was somewhat worried because fine dining has that stereotype of tiny plates and still being hungry after the meal... that is not true at all here. You get FED. We tried so many different things: scallops, octopus, salmon from Scotland and New Zealand, lobster, blue fin tuna, A5 wagyu beef both in nigiri and toban-yaki grilled, and a lot more. The desserts at the end of the meal were also fantastic - creme brulee, mochi ice cream, and tuxedo cake. Every dish utilizes very high quality ingredients. That combined with how much food you actually get truly justifies the price for omakase.
On top of all this, Tony is an awesome server - he thoroughly explained each dish that came to the table and took very good care of us the entire time.
Thank you again for an unforgettable experience!
Excellent service! The menu was limited but everything we had tasted amazing
Friendly staff and great service- We had a wonderful experience at O-Ku. The food and cocktails were excellent and our waitress was thoughtful and attentive. We will definitely be coming back in the near future.
Everything was great, can’t wait to go back.
Great atmosphere and we let the waiter pick out rolls from their best sellers. Only complaint was we had to wait even having a reservation for 3 days prior.
great ambience, very good waiter, Tony. Food very good but a bit pricey.....I sometimes go home from eating there and I am hungry.....Small portions and expensive for some items....Drinks were good but small martini glasses.....Waiter, Tony was very helpful in explaining different things to us about the menu and suggesting some special items.
Portion sizes were very small for the price. Got sushimi combo which was suppose to be 24 pieces for $50. It had 20 pieces, 3 of which were the egg pieces. Got a total of 5 rolls, two of which only had 5 pieces/slices in the roll. Better dining options for sushi in Charlotte. Paying for the location (South End) not for higher or better quality food.
Thank you for the royal treatment. You make our dining experience dynamite each and every time. We greatly appreciate the effort in accommodating our dining changes.
As well, thank you for making my birthday celebration a memorable one. You and the entire team make it absolutely wonderful and delightful in all our visits.
Excellent service, warm and friendly atmosphere,

Food and service was great. Considering the pandemic they did a great job enforcing the rules without impacting the experience.
Great food and fun night
It was my friend’s birthday and as usual, they brought out a special dish to celebrate. They are always very thoughtful and make a point to send people over to say happy birthday.
Great food great service
Ryan was the best
The person behind us was on FaceTime for the duration of our meal with little regard to those around them. It kind of ruined the ambiance.
The food was amazing! It’s the best sushi in Charlotte. Cannot wait to go back.
Had a reservation for 815 didn't get seated until 835
Great service, delicious food, safe environment
They gave us some food free food!
