    After visiting a few weeks ago and everything was excellent, I recommended here for my girls Xmas night out. The food wasn’t as good, the service speed was shocking and was left disappointed. The staff were friendly but unfortunately just were not as attentive as they were when I visited previously!

    Hi, Thank you for your review, we take every review seriously, to make better changes to our establishment. Were so sorry you felt it wasn't as good, the 4th was one of the busiest Saurdays we have ever had, hense not being as attentive as before. We are having a shortage of staff problems at the moment, so we are very sorry that you felt it wasn't as good. We hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards, OKO Management

    My husband and I went on a Friday dinner date there whilst on a weekend getaway in Birmingham. The menu is very attractive and our meal was delicious. However, the menu was inflexible (ie you can only order platters and as they come) and we found it expensive (and we are from London). The host and server were friendly and smiling, however, inexperienced and not so knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The music was good and lighting was ambient but upstairs is a nightclub so the clientele is young ie adults in their 20s dressed for a night out and the atmosphere ramps up early and quickly. So in summary, we are a bit confused by the whole experience as the nice menu, good quality of the food and steep prices don’t really fit with the ambiance and clientele it seems to attract, but maybe that was because we were there on a Friday night. Anyhow, if this is what you are after then it’s the venue for you!

    Hi, Thank you for your very detailed review. In terms of the crowd we attract, its very diverse and different from week to week, and no matter what age people are whether its young professionals, or a more mature crowd - we will always keep the best quality we can, in our food, menu and venue, as we dont think age matters when it comes to quality. We hope this cleared the confusion you had. We hope to see you again in the near future. Kind Regards, OKO Management

    It was our first time dining at OKO and we loved it. We were greeted by friendly staff and we’re not waiting long to order drinks. The vibe was trendy and fun, the lighting was just right and then there was musician that played along with the music. The cocktails and the food were delicious- can’t fault anything. A fabulous evening!

    Sushi wasn’t as fresh as it should have been. Service wasn’t great. Noted it was a birthday celebration in advance and this was ignored. A shame as we could have gone elsewhere to celebrate.

    Well… we booked a table and were told we had the table for an hour and a half… ordered food and wine, we got the wine. We then watched others arrive and order and get their food. An hour and half we watched people arrive and eat food. We waited and watched and didn’t receive food. After an hour, we asked about where our food was and we’re told it was coming. After another 45 minutes we had to give up. We had both given up at this point. We have cancelled our food order and ordered an Uber back to our hotel. So after a £30 Uber to get there, a 2 hour wait, no food, an extortionate bottle of wine and a cocktail, we are home, hungry and angry. Not even an apology, or a discount on the wine or anything. Absolutely disgusted. I cannot understand how they can get away with treating people like this. For the prices they charge, and not even an apology?

    Beautiful restaurant and amazing food that was well presented. Will definitely be back for another visit, the only thing is i wouldnt recommend going on a Sunday at opening time (2pm) because it did take quite a while for our food to be prepared. No complaints however because the sushi was made fresh and really delicious, also the drinks were really impressive.

    drinks were really nice, and so was the atmosphere. the violinist was a nice touch. my boyfriend had the katsu curry it was a good portion and boyfriend enjoyed it. I had the rock shrimp/prawns which were very disappointing. it was tempura prawns that came in a little cocktail glass with no garnish and it was £17! some bits were just tempura and it just wasn’t great. However the staff were really understanding and did take it off the bill. I would go again and try something different but what I had was very overpriced and wouldn’t recommend. It was more of a starter.

    The food was tasty but not spicy enough. The Katsu curry to rice and tempura vegetable ratio was off so I had leftover plain rice after my curry finished. My server was lovely, he took good care of us. However, the orange lighting was overpowering and ruined the photos of us and the food.

    Amazing food and great service on a family night out. Kids loved the (dry ice) food presentation and we left before it started to get kicking (8.45pm) and Ryan could NOT have been better! Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for! A hidden gem and Loved it and we will certainly all be back!

    The food was very nice however very pricey. The service was terrible, it took 40 minutes for us to finally get our food after ordering it and prior to this the waitress bought us the incorrect food and was adamant we had ordered it when we didn't. After finishing dinner we asked for the dessert menu which wasn't given to us until 20 minutes later as the waiter had forgot that we asked for it. Overall, the atmosphere was lovely but the service was terrible which ruined the mood of the evening. As we had to wait so long for food and any of our orders to be taken, we decided to go elsewhere for more food and drinks where the service was more speedy.

    Food that arrived was not what we ordered. Low quality sushi. Waited 30 mins around for 30 mins for a waiter to bring over a dessert menu which never came so asked for the bill instead. Left hungry and no apology from the staff. Wouldn’t recommend or return.

    The guy who was front of house was sat with feet on a chair tapping away on his phone when we arrived. I thought he was waiting for his food. A few minutes went by until he looked up and realised we where waiting at the reception area. The restaurant only had 2 other couples in. So it was not to busy to of not heard us come in. We where seated and left with menus. We had to ask bar staff if we order a drink with them or of a waitress will come over as we where left again longer than necessary. The cocktails where exceptional! The food was beautiful. The arrival was all that let this place down.

    We didn't have food, we went for drinks after a Fantastic meal at Gaucho for my Mrs Birthday. Nuvo was then the perfect place for social drinks, Great service, I was even served an espresso Coffee at around 12am because I was dozing of lol, then with the energetic ambience of the club and my new found energy from a caffeine rush went up to the club area and danced away for another 2-3 hours! fantasticO!
