The service and handling was phenomenal and made the night celebrating son's 21sr Birthday. Food is yummy but pricey. Chef came out to greet and give salutations to Birthday Boy and treated the table to dessert which was an exceptional gesture. Glad to have had the special moment there.

Our server was so sweet and it was such a great place for a first date. It was a little bit loud but our server was so genuine, you could genuinely tell she cares about us.

It was amazing food. Quiet on a Tuesday night. We got the wings, which were sweet and spicy. The BBQ buns were AMAZING. The sushi rolls were great too

The food has declined since it opened. It now feels a bit expensive. It has gotten too loud as well. Very tough to have a conversation with people at our own table. Turning in to a place you go to if you are using a corporate card.

What an awesome Sushi spot! Mon-Wed they have a half off special. Took my wife here for her birthday and the staff treated us like royalty. Highly recommend. Tsunami Roll and the wings were my favorites.

Fun date night restaurant. Fun music and contemporary decor. The food was absolutely delicious. While it was clear they were a bit short staffed, as is everyone right now, they still did a good job and were very friendly and helpful. I can’t wait to go back again.

First sushi experience after moving to Raleigh and the sushi was so good. I had the Angry Salmon role and it was AWESOME! The Angry Salmon role is perfect if you like heat!! Made with Salmon, avocado, spicy tuna, serrano, spicy ponzu, masago

We sat at he bar and had a beautiful cocktail — lychee cosmopolitan. We were there early enough for happy hour which is food related, not drink related. The food was delicious and beautiful. Will definitely go back.

Ray was such an excellent waiter! Made our experience so pleasant, knowledgeable, offered on point opinions on what we would enjoy most and kept the soy sauce and white wine flowing! Outside in the Delta pandemic is a great place to eat! We will both go back just to have Ray serve us again!

We had Ray as our main server. He was superb! Not only was he extremely nice and helpful, he knew the menu forwards and back. It was a great experience with awesome food, sake, and desert. I'd highly recommend O-Ku, and we will be going back.

Just wow. What a great evening. Ray was our server and he was a delight. My friend and I hadn’t seen each other in while so we were chatting and took a while to order drinks, and Ray was so sweet to us. We had some wine, ordered some small plates (carpaccio, pork buns) and it was all perfect. We ordered a few more plates (shishito peppers, pork belly, lemon salmon roll, and katana roll) and again the food was superb. For dessert we had pavlova but we’re gifted an additional dessert to the table with a visit from the chef. While I have been to O-Ku several times, it was my friends first and the service and food were both 11/10! Such a great evening. If you’re looking for a good night out with great food. This is where to go.

All of the food, service, etc. was fantastic. Our server was very friendly and attentive as well. It was kind of O-Ku to provide us with complimentary dessert for our anniversary as well. We will definitely come back for a casual night out soon.

I’m not sure if it’s the pandemic stimulus has caused less talented kitchen staff or just an off night, but something has happened to O-Ku. The food was not at its normal standard ( even the beloved Rick shrimp was stale and tasteless). Hate to see one of our favorite stand-by restaurants decline like we experienced last night.
