Food was amazing and the service was excellent!!
I've been to O-Ku a few times and I always absolutely LOVE it. The food has always been delicious and the staff always incredibly kind and helpful. Highly recommend the tsunami roll!
Overall, O-Ku is incredible and I highly recommend it!
Food was great, tried a few new things that were amazing. We will go back for sure.
Nice ambiance! As for food and service, they were average.
I’ve been eating at O-Ku for almost 10 years! I’m originally from Charleston and was over the moon to have the Raleigh location follow me here. There’s probably some nostalgia involved, but the rock shrimp salad speaks for itself. The Sugar and Spice cocktail and I go way back and is a must for any spice-lover. Get pickled wasabi on the side! Yeah, I love this place.
Absolutely amazing. And now with James at GM, it’ll only get better
Excellent food, service & ambiance. Looking forward to returning soon!
This was our second time dining at O-Ku and it did not disappoint. We loved the tuna tataki appetizer and our entrees were amazing! Everything comes out beautifully plated and our service was spectacular. I hadn’t even noticed we’d been waiting long for our main course (later found out my husband had) and our server offered us a complimentary dessert without us even mentioning the long wait time. The cheesecake is great! We’ll definitely be returning again.
We went to O-Ku for the first time with friends and they were able to accommodate a last minute change in our reservation which was very helpful. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and had several recommendations on what we should order. My drink was not what I expected and not good but she was able to have something else made for me. We had chicken wings for an appetizer and they were a bit dry. But, other than that, everything else we ordered was very good. The black magic was the favorite of the table. We also had the hanger yaki, salmon and lemon maki, cali crunch and spicy tuna crunch were all really good. We felt the menu was pricey for what we got. But, the service was great, the staff was very attentive, and we had a nice night out with friends. We will be back again!
Excellent food and atmosphere
Wonderful! Super covid safe and delicious as always.
Great atmosphere, with attentive staff, and amazing food!
I had a great time during my first visit. The food was delicious, the plating was well done, the drinks were tasty, and I would definitely go back. Would recommend going during happy hour if you want to save a few bucks.
This is the best sushi place in town. Always have amazing food and great customer service
This was the third time we’ve eaten here in the past month. The first two times were great. This time I think they must have just been overwhelmed with the evening. Food wasn’t as good and service was slow. We’ll give it another try on a less crowded night.
We always have a great time at Oku. The food is great, the drinks are good and the atmosphere is lively! The service this time wasn’t the best because our food took longer than usual to come out and we ordered 1 sushi roll each. When we asked the server how much longer it would be she said they had a bunch of Togo orders to get to first. I thought that was a strange response as you’re basically saying to go orders take priority over guests who are seated in the dining room. Any who, it was a great time and we will definitely be back.
The sushi and the rest of the menu options are amazing! One of my new favorite sushi restaurants in the Triangle. Great service. Pretty good at heeding to the covid requirements too.
Food quality not what it used to be and overpriced for the quality
Good afternoon, Thank you so much for your feedback! I would love to discuss your experience with you further. I will be reaching out to you shortly. Thank you again for your feedback. Zach Stewart General Manager
I just moved to this area not long ago and I have been looking for great Japanese food, especially sushi.
After many dissapointing experiences, found M-Suhi which finally gave me what I was looking for. Then, quite accidentally made a reservation in O-ku; decided to give a try. After other experiences I was not expecting much. Oh boy was I surprised. So now I have two go to places to go when craving japanese food.
Do not hesitate to eat here. You will be pleased and like me, become a customer.
I loved how they minimized the capacity by a lot! I felt extremely comfortable. Food was great, as usual!
i dine here all the time and it is consistently wonderful .
great service cool atmosphere and always great food
Perhaps the best sushi and presentation in town! A+ quality service from staff. Very attentive. Plenty of parking in paid garages nearby. Limited street parking. However, all worth visiting this establishment.
The food here is absolutely fantastic! We tried lots of different rolls, sashimi, ways and more and it was all delicious! The service is on point.
Absolutely love this place! The people, the food, the atmosphere... it’s the perfect spot no matter the occasion. Thank you to all the folks who make each time I visit special!
Our server and food were great !! We thoroughly enjoyed our night and in COVID times, we felt very safe as well!
Great atmosphere and the food quality is amazing!!
I CANNOT say enough great things about O-Ku. My friends and I came to celebrate my graduation last Thursday evening. The service was outstanding, our waitress was awesome. Who I assumed to be the manager or owner checked on us throughout the night as well. Who I assumed to be the manager or owner checked on us throughout the night as well. The food and cocktails were even better! I had some of the best, if not the best, sushi I have ever had. To round out our evening, they gave us complimentary champagne and desert! We will be back at least once a month now if not more. Thank you O-Ku!
Very pleased with the O-ku staff and food and drinks! We keep coming back :)
Make sure to order the Katana roll. That’s it, that’s all I have to say. Best roll in Raleigh. Maybe think about ordering two of them.
Great food and service, we will definitely go back.
First time visiting O-ku. Overall the food and service was amazing. My only gripe would be that the chicken teriyaki was underwhelming, essentially just rice, some plain chicken on a bed of teriyaki sauce...not worth $18.
Will definitely be visiting again.
We ate outdoors, with 2 heaters near the table. Very attentive staff, and wonderful food!
Can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. A great place for a date or just out with friends. Excellent service too!
I went for the first time for my friend’s birthday, and we had a great time! I loved the ambiance, and the food was fantastic! I would definitely recommend it for a nice date or special occasion.
O-Ku was AWESOME. I took my girlfriend there for our 3 year anniversary. When making the reservation, I attached a note for the staff to put some flowers and brief card on the table. They went above and beyond! The flowers were beautiful and they brought us celebratory champagne. After the meal, my girlfriend declared that it was literally the best meal she's had.
This place is awesome. Simple.
Tonight we celebrated a family member’s birthday and they had a blast! It was their first time coming to the restaurant and they absolutely loved it. The food was great, the staff were all pleasant and excellent in taking care of us. The atmosphere is very vibrant and welcoming. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner at O-Ku! Every single dish was so full of flavor and the fish was very fresh. We especially loved the Black Magic, the Katana roll, and the Usuzukuri! The Ora King salmon nigiri was outstanding as well. I would recommend O-Ku to anyone who is looking for some great sushi with a splendid atmosphere.
My husband and I sat at the bar for dinner and had an amazing experience! The food preparation and quality is perfection and our cocktails were delicious!!
We chose to dine outdoors due to COVID. My only complaint is that it was a chilly night and they have no outdoor heaters. As we get into the colder months I would recommend that they get heaters for the outdoor seating area
