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.*

Great option in Atlantic City. We lived in Tokyo for three years, and the ramen stands up to it. Great service. Loud after 8pm.

It was cool atmosphere but surprisingly lousy food. The sausage BBQ was a hot dog on a toothpick. The chicken noodles smelled like fish. Big disappointment.

We were looking forward to this restaurant which is in the Tropicana in Atlantic City.The restaurant was started by a Iron Chef!Sadly from the time we entered we were disappointed.I was enbarassed to walk out but we should have made our excuses.The restaurant is very dark.We were handed menus but my Husband had to use his cellphone light so we could read them.They are known for their ramen but did order a few starters.I must say the dumplings were horrible-flat and oily with a unappetizing color.There was a sauce but that also fell short.The sushi was good and cruncy but no little bowls for soy sauce or wasabi-just a flat rather large dish which did not work well for dipping.The pork bun was great!My husband ordered the seafood ramen,supposed to be a seafood dashi but tasted more like beef broth.The bowl was mostly noodles and hard to eat as they were all tangled.The seafood was cooked well-shrimp,clams,scallop.When it hit 8pm a DJ came in and started blasting music(happy hour)and we left.They have a cocktail menu along with wine & beer.I guess we were glad we tried it though disappointed and feel no reason to go back.I would like th thank our waiter who was attentive and gracious.

Absolutely delicious. Portebello mushrooms were the best I have ever had in 40 years on this planet. Chicken and zucchini were good too. ‘Short ribs’ were not short ribs, and a little tough. Rainbow roll was delicious. Japanese whiskey flight was expensive and not 3/5 were not good. But overall SUPER FUN and delicious.

As always the food was good the problem is the portions here seem to get less and less.

No problem paying A lot of money for food but the Kobe beef Satay’s were small and frankly a bit chewy.

The sushi rolls were good but a bit small even the specialty rolls. Even the five flavor ribs were extremely small.

Feel cheated

Great atmosphere. Great food. The only thing That would have made our experience better would be a side dish of some sort. Rice or noodles. We didn’t even see the option to purchase it on the menu. Maybe we were reading the menu wrong. Overall very happy with the experience

Everything was great! The only thing that could have been better is if our waiter would have checked on us once or twice during our meal. The food was top notch and the decor made you feel like you were in the streets of Thailand. Can’t wait to bring some new friends, not to mention the surprise entrance!

Such a cool little place tucked away in the casino! Food was outstanding and service was really great...attentive but not overbearing. Atmosphere is fun and cool although a bit noisy. It didn’t bother us but might someone else. We were pleasantly surprised from start to finish and will definitely be back.

The food is always outstanding. The service is just OK. The food comes out fast, but it takes a long time for anyone to check on if you need drinks. This visit it took a ridiculous amount of time for our table to be cleared. I'd estimate a half hour from the time we finished eating dinner until our server came by again to see if we wanted dessert. We weren't in a rush, but no one wants their plates and leftovers sitting in front of them for that long. All that being said, it's one of our favorite restaurants in AC because of the quality food.

As far as Atlantic City eateries go, Okatshe stands out in a crowd of over priced burgers & bad Italian food. As far as authentic sushi, I would look elsewhere but for a decent meal (bonus that they have late weekend hours) in the area, I would highly recommend Okatshe.

Food was excellent with a limited menu though. As for cost vs. worth, it was not really comparable and would recommend just being aware that Atlantic City will be slightly more expensive than what you might think.

Great hidden gem in Tropicana casino. Had California roll, chicken yakatori stick for appetizer. Ramen noodles for dinner. The meal was outstanding. Ramen was hot and just the right amount of heat. Wish the restaurant was open on Monday and Tuesday.
