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.*

This is one of our favorite places to go to in AC. Cleverly hidden as a candy shop, the interior of the restaurant makes you feel like you are in Tokyo. The food is absolutely delightful and nothing that we’ve had on the menu has disappointed.
The restaurant itself has limited space so I would recommend making reservations and not waiting until the last minute.

Went during restaurant week. All the other reviews are correct this place is amazing! The sushi and all the other food is super fresh and delicious. The cocktail list is AMAZING. Our server and hostess were very welcoming. If you can book it, please do because it’s some of the best Japanese food I’ve ever had. They really do make each dish feel special.

I took my girlfriend to this resturant during Valentine’s Day and let’s just say it surprised her so much! I pretended to say “babe we are here! I just brought you here to buy Japanese snacks” (she doesn’t know that it was just the outside) she was so disappointed and mad at me! Then I surprised her and we went in the back was a big resturant she was so surprised and we both loved it food was great too would recommend!

Okatshe is the best kept secret in AC for Japanese food. When you step past the secret door you step into a back ally in Osaka. Very cool and the music is great. Live DJ spinning tunes.

Went to the restaurant especially for ramen noodle soup, for it was the closest without going towards Philly or NYC area. Ordered the spicy ramen. Broth had very little flavor or depth. Yes, we saved some time and energy by going to AC, but I would, next time go and drive the extra hour to go to better place to order ramen noodle soup.
