Amazing sushi!! Probably the best in the Raleigh area
So glad they are back!!! Forgot how good they are!!!
Our first experience at O-Ku and we enjoyed it very much. We will be back!
Had a great experience here. The waiter noticed it was my friends birthday and brought us a drink and donuts with a candle for an extra special evening. It was so appreciated!
We waited 30 minutes for our food. I ended up having to leave and come back to pick up our order as a to go order. The portions were entirely too small for the cost. My daughter ended up having to share my meal bc the two pieces of crab meat they gave her weren't enough to bait a shrimp net! Will NOT be returning!
Kisha, Thank you so much for your feedback, we love feedback. I will be reaching out to you to discuss your experience further. Thank you for your time and have a great day. Zach Stewart General Manager
Came in for my sisters birthday. Could not have had a better time. Truly an experience we will never forget.
Ok-u is by far my favorite sushi spot in Raleigh,NC. The service and ambiance are unmatched! Additionally, the establishment is very clean.
Good food, fairly creative and interesting, though the outside dining is a mixed bag. Some moving air would have been good, but I know they are doing the best they can in the COVID era. Maybe prices are a little high, but overall value is good.
Excellent food and service
Definitely will be back! You certainly do need a reservation.
Great cocktails. Great sushi. Great service.
We love O-ku, food was excellent, fish was super fresh. Every single dish was delicious. Cocktails were great, sugar and spice is my favorite. Service was outstanding, super friendly and courteous staff. We’ll be back soon.
This was our first time out since March and we loved every minute. The food was amazing, service was great and we got to eat on the patio which was wonderful. Great experience. We love OKU!!
Going to O-Ku last weekend was only the second time i've been out since the beginning of Covid19, but if more restaurants handled spacing, temperature checks, and overall safety the way they did, i'd be likely to go out to eat more often.
Food was excellent. Service was amazing. Social distancing tables for COVID made us feel more comfortable.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. A little in the pricy side but a great place to splurge once and a while.
We have been here the past two weekends. The food is amazing...top two sushi places in Raleigh, hands down. The service is wonderful, and the ambiance is perfect for a night out, romantic or with friends. 10/10 recommend
Consistently good food and ambient atmosphere. Service is sophisticated but was a little slow this time. Favorite aspect is always the atmosphere.
Very disappointed in the omakase. Last time we came just a few months ago the omakase experience was so amazing that we were very excited to come again today for my birthday. It’s a sushi restaurant, and on top of that, it’s an omakase, but salad and gyoza was given for 1/4 of our course. I don’t understand why gyoza would be a part of an omakase. It felt like a waste and they were just trying to make us more full. The omakase experience we had a few months ago was definitely worth the $100 but this time we were so disappointed that it felt like it should’ve been a $50 meal. Wagyu is also not worth it unless it’s the A5 which wasn’t available so we went with hanger steak wagyu but it felt and tasted so tough and bland. Half of the fish in the sushi courses were so low quality that we were confused because when we had sushi here a few months ago it was amazing and a different experience. Overall, the only word I would use to describe tonight’s dinner is: disappointment.
Went with my family and everything was great from service to food and wine.
Best sushi in Raleigh. They have the freshest fish and all the rolls are so good. Even their hot dishes and appetizers are great
Took my friend for her Birthday! When I made the reservation I included a message that explained the occasion and they went above and beyond! Our server Anna was so helpful/thoughtful. Our dinner was amazing-she even brought out dessert with a candle and champagne at the end! Thank you!
Best sushi In Raleigh 🤗 so good and great service.
Always the very best!!!
Wonderful food and staff!! I will definitely go back soon. I highly recommend!!
O-Ku was delicious. Even better than the first time I went a year ago. The service was great and safe.
Anna was AWESOME! She had wonderful and spot on suggestions. All the food was delicious. This is my 4th time here and they never disappoint.
Food was super good. Service was great. Will be back for sure!
Bring the potato rolls back!!!! But we love this resturant
O-Ku is truly home away from home for all my sushi needs. I always get impeccable service and each time the staff may change they still quickly remember each time I come in.
One of my favorites here in D/T Raleigh.
Delicious dinner enjoyed on the outdoor patio!
We got appetizers and drinks. The service was incredible! Waitress and hostess were so friendly. My cocktail was great! The food was good but a bit pricey.
Maybe they had a reason, though we could imagine why, but my Black Magic was WAY below par. It tasted like it had been pre mixed and sat out. We’ve had this dish many times but this was not good. I ate it because it wasn’t free and that was our 1st dinner out in 3 months. My husband’s sashimi was excellent. Our server was great and she was not responsible for corners cut in the kitchen. Sad.
My sister and I went for her birthday dinner and it was all so delicious. The rock shrimp appetizer and the 2 rolls were the perfect portion (tsunami roll is delicious). Of course we each got several drinks. Our favorite was the one with a little kick to it- sugar and spice martini. Ambiance was chic and our waiter was the best. Can’t wait to go back!
O-ku is terrific. If you like sushi, just go. You will not be disappointed.
Besides being charged full price after deciding to dine here because of the promoted half-off happy hour, it was great.
The food, service and atmosphere is always amazing at O-Ku. One of our favorites.
This was our first night out since quarantining at home for the last few months. We thoroughly enjoyed it - great service and the food was very good. Thank you!
