    Trendy upbeat vibe & nicely decorated. Tiny food portions; did not seem like a good value financially. Server was very kind. They did give us $3.50 discount for taking about 45 minutes making my meal while they served my husband's main meal 30 minutes before mine. They forgot my ponzu sauce which I had mentioned twice. It was still an okay experience and might have been just an off night; other people might have a super experience. Hoping for a great future for O-Ku. :-)

    My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner. We chose the Omakase tasting for our dinner. It was all prepared beautifully with great skill and care. The service was excellent. The only improvement from our point of view would be possibly adding a noodle dish or a sushi roll to break up the amount of raw fish we had over the 8 courses. But, almost everything we ate was very scrumptious.

    Food was amazing, server was nice but very visibly busy. Got our food before our drinks which kind of sucked but the food did make up for a lot of it. Very fresh and delicious.

    Amazing food overall, with few misses. Stick to fresh over fried or battered and you're going to find a winner. Beautiful space and ambiance but so so loud (and we came on a Wednesday). Does the sound matter though if the food is pretty close to perfect?

    Celebrated a birthday at O’ku and they made us feel extra special (or maybe that’s their normal customer service 😊) Will definitely go back. Enjoyed starters, Sushi rolls and Noodle bowl and of course a birthday dessert . Just the right amount of attention from our server and food was delicious

    When Marcos used to work there everything was better, now feels like the quality is decreasing, also, we order dessert to go and it took forever to get it, we even had to go to the kitchen to requested several times. I’m not sure if I will come back.

    This is my favorite place for sushi in Raleigh. The Otoro spoons are amazing. The only negative is the rolls are not the best, everything else is top notch! We did the Omakase and it was so worth it! Daniella was an amazing and fun server!

    Great spot - one of my favorite restaurants. Good vibe. I usually have great service - a very attentive staff. Tonight, I must have had a new person....had to ask for additional drinks, had to ask to order appetizers, had to ask for more soy sauce....atypical experience. I will be back.
