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 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.

Such a fun concept, dining at a restaurant hidden behind the wall of a Japanese candy store. The ramen and yakitori were delicious, and we tried a few different mochi flavors which we don't typically see at other restaurants. Service was fantastic. Great experience overall. Definitely coming back!

This was our first time here. It was a little difficult to find but we aren't familiar with the casino. At first I thought we must have been mistaken when we saw the name of the restaurant above what appeared to be a small store selling bags and boxes of Asian food hanging from the walls, similar to what you see in a hotel lobby for a grab-and-go type items. I figured we had to go down the elevator next to the that store to get to the restaurant. When I asked the person in the store (again, the name of the restaurant was above the store) if we needed to go in the elevator, she asked if we had a reservation and then said "Follow me through the secret door." A door leading to the restaurant was hidden behind all of the merchandise hanging from it. Clever idea!!! The ambience inside is great. The staff was excellent, explaining everything to us. Drinks were very good. We had the Wagyu beef skewers, which were very tasty. A little tougher than I expected but still delicious. Our Pork noodle bowl was excellent as was the sushi we ordered. I would definitely go again. We were not rushed by the waiter. The food arrived at a leisurely pace.

The food definitely did not live up to the hype or the price, and the wait for our ramen was ridiculously long. People entered, ate, and left all while we were waiting for our entree, and the waiter never came by to check on us. I was very disappointed that I wasted my birthday dinner at this restaurant. And there are ZERO vegetarian options, which is strange for an Asian restaurant.

From the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out, everything was on point! The concept is so cool and different. They pull it off so well. The decor is spot on, sleek, hip, and flows so well. I enjoyed the music and the ambiance. Our server Roberto, was so helpful and very informative. Answered all our questions and was very clear on how to order or what to do. Each drink we ordered was consistent in flavor and alcohol. Food came out fresh and had like perfect timing. We ordered, gyozas, octopus shish kabobs, the Tropicana rolls, and the sirloin steak (med rare). EVERYTHING WAS SCRUMPTIOUS!!!! I’ll definitely be going back and hopefully soon!!!
