    Wonderful dining experience. Our server was very personable and attentive. I mentioned it was my friends birthday and she brought delicious donuts for dessert. Happy hour menu is great and they also have some great sake!

    Jinah took great care of us, sushi is always phenomenal. There’s a reason this is my favorite sushi restaurant in all of Wake County.

    Sushi was "ok", but certainly nothing to write home about, especially at the price point they're at. Cocktails were good, and service was excellent. Chirashi was more of a poke bowl with fish chopped up so small as to be indecipherable. Very disappointing.

    We had a large party that grew 30 minutes before our reservation. Paul did a great job accommodating us and Sarah at the bar and Clint at the table, we had a fantastic experience. All sushi and rolls were fantastic. Would have loved a Modelo, but a 99.9 score here!

    Our server was SPECTACULAR!! Food was AMAZING!! General ambiance was lovely, but it was quite loud and a bit challenging to have a conversation with my table-mates. Music seemed a bit too loud. BUT, there were a lot of folks in a small space so lots of natural sound around.

    Oku has an amazing vibe that sets a great ambiance for any dinner. The food is great and the happy hour menu is definitely a great way to be able to recognize the excellent service the employees provide.

    My wife and I recently ate here and was blown away! The food is incredible—every dish is packed with flavor and beautifully presented. The place itself is stunning, with a trendy, vibrant vibe that sets a great mood. The staff are fantastic, super attentive, and really know their stuff. The only catch is the noise level—it’s pretty loud, making it hard to chat. But if you’re into a lively atmosphere, you’ll love it here. Despite the noise, the amazing food and friendly service make it a must-visit
