Japanese
Okatshe (pronounced Ō- kaht-she) is a take on the Japanese word for “sweets.” This sake and noodle bar is hidden behind a colorful Japanese candy store. Guest browse the boxes, bags and jars of bright, quirky candy as they make their way toward a Japanese streetscape. The restaurant interior has the feel of a Tokyo night market with food stalls dedicated to sake and whiskey, sushi and noodles.

*Please be aware when making reservations, a majority of seating throughout the restaurant is at communal tables.*

First time at Okatshe. Party of three, myself, my wife, and son for AC restaurant week . We all enjoyed our food. Curry pan, 5 spice ribs, chicken wings, crab croquettes, and chashu buns as first course. Second course we had Tropicana rolls, crab and shrimp tempura roll , NY Strip sirloin, tako (octopus), and bacon wrapped asparagus. Wow, a lot of small plates adds up to a lot of food. Thoroughly enjoyed by all. The mastiff will eat well this evening with all we took home.
We will be returning soon

My only comment is that the service is slow. It took 15 minutes for someone to come over to our table and talk with us about the menu. We were only a party of 2. Our visit was on a Saturday night at 8pm. It was busy but not packed. I had a similar experience last June when I brought a large party here mid week. Otherwise food is great!

We loved the vibe that the restaurant bought forth. The decor and music was very eclectic and I would love to be there on a Friday or Saturday night. The only advise I would offer to have more of a sushi non seafood offer because we have some client that don’t like seafood but does enjoy sushi.

When walking into the entrance to the restaurant, it's very misleading as it looks like a regular candy shop. It was very comical to find out that the store was inside the shop! Coolest thing I've ever seen out of a restaurant. The food and ambiance was incredible. This was the best experience of any restaurant I've been to

Okatshe had amazing food (highly suggest their chicken wings) and a very cool vibe to the whole place. My boyfriend and I went in for dinner on Valentine's Day and really enjoyed the experience. There was a DJ so the music was a bit loud. This didn't bother us, but it might bother some. I definitely suggest checking it out!!

The food is excellent. The chicken wings are to die for. The space itself is intimate and great for a date night. Only one issue. They had a DJ playing club music fairly loud on a Sunday night. Seemed a lil odd, no dance floor. Simply a restaurant. It didn’t take away too much from the awesome food and experience though.

We were pleasantly surprised for we haven’t had Japanese food before. Our waiter Dan was very helpful in suggesting appetizers, entrees and a dessert. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. Being a speakeasy restaurant was fun too. We look forward to visiting there again.

I love the secret door experience just entering the restaurant . It was really fun to have the door open from the fully lit convenience store shop to the dimly lit restaurant. I had the tonkatsu miso ramen and while the pork wasn’t as tasty or soft as in the ramen I’ve had before the rest of the flavors made up for it. I usually don’t like huge squares of seaweed in my soup but since the seaweed was thinly sliced it mixed perfectly with the broth and noodles. We also ordered the kalbi yakitori and octupus yakitori. Super fun to eat especially with their sauces; I did enjoy the octopus which was cooked to perfection . I’ve had better kalbi, still tasty but I’d probably pass next time I go. We ended dinner with a green tea mochi and salted caramel mochi both were delicious and I liked that they cut them so we could share.
