    This was my 2nd time at Oku celebrating a friendiversary and it was FANTASTIC yet again. Our server Justin was so attentive and knowledgeable and recommended amazing food and drink. They gave us champagne on the house and these cute matching “bestie” cups. I got the Lychee martini which was so refreshing and delicious. We got the mushroom lobster dish which is my FAVORITE, a spicy crunchy tuna roll, pork belly, and salmon sashimi.

    Always an incredible time at O-Ku! We were celebrating purchasing our first house and the entire staff went above and beyond to celebrate with us and make our night special! Steven made fantastic recommendations and made the whole experience very fun. We recommend the duck buns, and we get the salmon lemon roll every time we dine at O-Ku.

    We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday. From the moment we arrived the hostess asked who had the birthday. From that point on all the servers acknowledged it. Our waitress, Jasmin, was superb! Cannot say enough good things about her. Will definitely be back - great food & dining experience!

    I’ve been to Oku many times. The hostesses were accommodating and polite. The rolls were okay tonight, not super flavorful but good. The sushi is usually best in town! They did surprise us with a few on the house dishes which were incredible! I highly recommend the crispy chili shrimp, cauliflower and ahi poke tuna on crispy nori. The nigiri wasn’t special. The service was incredible! The waiter was attentive and professional. He went out of his way multiple times to accommodate our large group and help us celebrate a few birthdays. The manager also came by to help. Really enjoyed our experience, thank you Oku!
