Our server Remi ( not sure I have the spelling correct) was amazing. We had our grandchild ages just about 10 and 7 with us after a long road trip. She took the time to be sure their needs were met, acknowledged our granddaughter’s almost birthday, and was just a delight. Remi truly made our dining memorable. Our granddaughter was so appreciative of Remi that she wants to celebrate her birthday dinner at OOKA and said she hopes Remi will be there. We are coming back tomorrow Thursday 8/29 for dinner.

Fabulous fresh sushi. We have eaten at Ooka many times-tonight was superb-from the excellent waiter (Matt) to every single dish- the fish was the freshest I’ve tasted anywhere in the Philly area. We had a special Maki -cold smoked salmon wrapped inside another type of smoked salmon with a delicious sour cream on top. We ordered the sushi pizza as we always do tonight was the best we’ve had. Tuna tartare with goat cheese on top and a basil aoli underneath along with A wasabi Guacamolé-need I say more? There was more! Each and every dish was fresh, seasoned perfectly – truly perfection. And this was on a Monday night for a birthday celebration. We will be back!

There were five of us. We sat on the hibachi side. The service was exceptional. The cook was entertaining. The food was prepared exactly as we ordered. I got filet mignon and fried rice. Very yummy!

Let me start by I drive forty minutes to go to Ooka Montgomeryville location becuase the staff are exceptional and the food is always fresh. They remember by name and we always request Alex. He takes dining to a new level. His customer service and knowledge of the menu is stellar. I got the Toro and Surf and Turf roll, sakura mugaro and my husband got steak and pork buns and enjoyed some duck legs :) This establishment is one of the best !

We go to Ooka often. My only complaint is the noise level. There is not much to absorb the sound.

Service was great- our waiter was attentive and personable. Unfortunately, the calamari was rubbery and flavorless and the rolls we got were sloppy and sub-par. I have been going to ooka for YEARS (Doylestown location) and I have to say this is the first time I’ve been so disappointed in sushi. It was very, very bad. I normally never have a negative thing to say about ooka but today’s meal was underwhelming to say the least. The only positive I can give, besides the service, is the drink menu.

We have eaten at other Ooka's restaurants and really enjoyed them. Unfortunately the waiter was slow, talked down to us (as if we didn't know anything), put his bandaged thumb in the rice as he carried it to our table and was not very attentive. The food was not very good quality (chicken was tasteless & sushi seemed not very fresh). We will not likely go to the Montgomery Ooka's again.

This used to be our go to place, however the culture and service has changed over the last couple of visits to getting in as many customers as possible, rushing through the service so table turnover is higher (which is especially inconsiderate if you are having a casual affair, with appetizers, conversation, etc.). Not sure I would recommend as highly as I would previously.

Great food and impeccable service. I loved the special salmon maki (very fresh), and my vegan daughter inhaled 4 sweet potato maki rolls. Just wish they had a larger selection of crunchy and spicy rolls.

We eat at Ooka often. The food is always great. My only problem is that there is nothing to absorb the sound. This weekend a foursome next to us were really loud. It was hard to hear my soft-spoken friend. On another occasion, the teppanyaki room was deafening.

We have never been to Ooka Japanese restaurant before. We love Ichiban in Fox Chapel PA, especially the sauces. YumYum sauce is our favorite. The sauces here we not the same. The amount of rice and vegetables was small. I don't usually use the sauces and the chicken, although abundant, was dry. Finally, my daughter ordered Captain and Coke and was definitely not Captain Morgan Rum. She asked for another and it was the same. They did not charge her for her drinks.

I believe we had a server who just was too pushy. I was taking my daughters out for their first true sushi experience and the waiter was wanted his recommendations to be the choices and I found him rude. The food is always great.
