As others have stated in past reviews, this is definitely the sushi place Nashville has been waiting for. From the ambience to the food and cocktails, I can tell that a lot of thought and love goes into every item. Seriously the freshest fish I have had in a long time as well. I am now a life long fan and can't wait until I go back! Absolutely fantastic!!!

O-Ku is a favorite spot of mine, especially happy hour on Mondays! After my original birthday plans got snowed in, my friend took me out for a make-up dinner tonight and it was wonderful! Our server was fantastic and made such an effort to make me feel special which was so appreciated. The food was perfect as usual—the Playboy and Tennessee Two-Step were incredible and the chef’s choice sashimi was a perfect way to end out meal! I love coming to O-Ku and can’t wait for my next reservation!

We decided to plan an evening out with friends and family before we welcomed or second baby this week and decided on O-ku and were not disappointed. The service and good are top notch! The rock shrimp and cauliflower are not to be missed as well as the predator roll and nashvegas. Great drinks and good wine prices as well.

I am so glad I stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant! I was looking for something different for a date night with my husband and O-Ku was perfection. We ordered the Tennessee Two Step, Playboy, Black Magic, Mushroom Farro Risotto, Wagyu beef skewers, and rounded out dinner with Tiramisu. It was all soooo delicious! The risotto was absolutely incredible and my favorite. Creamy, cheesy, and hearty...just incredible! I am not a huge fan of sushi and only want it from time to time. However, I could eat O-Ku every day! My husband is a huge sushi fan and the Tennessee Two Step has quickly became one of his absolute favorites. Our server, Josh, was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. We actually let him decide our dessert and we do not regret it at all. He picked very well. This may have been our first time at O-Ku but it most certainly will not be our last. We absolutely love it!!

We started with the Black Magic, which was amazing. Squid ink rice with lobster on top. Almost ordered another because it was so good. We had the white truffle edamame and it was yum! We chose to split several rolls: the playboy, nashvegas, and predator. Predator was probably my favorite but they were all delicious. I don’t love raw sushi so these were perfect. We also had the Sugar & Spice cocktail and it was good- spicy with a sugared rim. The best part of the night was our server- she was upbeat, knew what she was talking about, and made great suggestions. She also let us try the espresso martini without us even asking, which I thought was really nice! This place is perfect for date night or a night out with friends. The ambiance is great- music was perfect, just the right amount of noise- and the food is outstanding.

We went to Oku last week for dinner, it was the first time for most of our party and we could not have been happier about the experience.
Our server, Clinton was awesome. He suggested dishes and let us know his favorites. He is a true professional. While the food is great, he made the night so enjoyable with his knowledge and disposition.
We had sushi, sashimi, the pork belly bowl all great. It is a very busy and popular spot, but they do a nice job of staying on schedule.
