    Oku’s happy hour cannot be beat! Amazing sushi at a great price. Cocktails are some of the very best in Charlotte. Vibe is 10/10. We did feel a bit rushed - we were in and out in 1.5 hours and felt like we had to chug our second drink because the server brought out the check very quickly. But I know they were busy and otherwise was an awesome experience like always!
    O-Ku - CharlotteResponded 5 days ago
    Hey, thanks for leaving us such a great review and for your compassion toward our staff when they're busy. We are so sorry you felt hurried! We'd love to make it up to you.. please feel free to reply directly here or reach out to the restaurant! In Service, Lauren Bachar General Manager

    Great food, great service! We got a chance to try some of the new items from their updated menu. Ryan did a great job describing the new dishes as well as chef's specials for the night. Make sure to try the south end shrimp and lobster tamaki!

    First time dining at O-Ku and absolutely loved it. Came looking for some decent sushi in NC and this surpassed our CA palettes! Choices were spot-on, service was over the top and management was visible and partaking in the event. Was a birthday celebration and O-Ku did not disappoint. Party hats for all 4 of us, birthday blowers, balloon and tinsel for the Birthday Boy. LOVED IT ALL

    We loved celebrating with all of you! Thanks for being such fun guests! You make our jobs easy.

    Always dependable. They were very busy so not their best showing from a service perspective but totally understandable.

    Hey goodeats00! Thanks for the great review and especially for the compassion - the world needs more people like you! I hope we can knock it out of the park for you next time!
