    We love Oku so much- it is the best sushi in town. We celebrated my husbands birthday last night and they went above and beyond to make it special.

    Maybe our 12th time in this fantastic establishment. Food is excellent and service just phenomenal. Inga, was our server and she did a splendid job. Management staff attentive and always present. O-Ku is a true gem in the Nashville's restaurant scene!

    The ambiance is fantastic with dim lighting, and comfortable seating. Our server was very professional though overall the food was very slow to arrive and service felt a bit disjunct. Food was good, but not great. The best item we tried was the lobster pasta. The playboy roll had great ingredients, but it just didn’t work for us. The onions as a side in the tobanyaki were flavorful but served room temperature and they just weren’t appealing with the dish. Overall we decided we would try it again but weren’t blown away for the hype and price

    Ethan was our server and he did a phenomenal job. He was so polite and truly went above and beyond to provide the best service. It was my sisters birthday and they printed her name on the menu and provided some other personalized touches that really made the overall experience amazing. The food is always amazing. No matter the dish or drink, we loved it all!

    Ok-u is a favorite of ours, but were there celebrating my cousin’s 21st birthday, and not only was the food incredible, but we had the best service we have ever received from our waiter. He was amazing and we all had an amazing time.

    Food and service were terrific. The music was so loud we could barely speak. I still recommend O-Ku because of the unique menu and quality.
