    The sashimi and nigiri platters were not only varied but also consistently delicious. The cocktails were creative and each one had an amazing flavor profile that made every sip worth it. The dessert was absolutely amazing!

    One of our favorite places, but subpar food this night. Bartenders were great and attentive, but some of our nigiri was fishy along with fishy and over cooked crispy rice.

    Good dining experience for my second time. I will say surprised to see that a couple of signature cocktail drinks were off the menu so early in the evening. Sugar and Spice was exactly what I needed! I was able to find a third choice that helped me to settle back in to a pleasurable dining experience. The food was amazing even the raw fish that I am venturing into eating more of these days.

    Food was great service and our waitress was great but everything is so SLOW. this is my second time in a row where the food took over an hour to come out. We had a 6:30 reservation and didn’t leave until 9pm because the food took so long to come out. We only had a couple rolls so not sure what is going on with the timing. If they could just fix their timing this would be a 5/5!

    Good Nigiri rice, dumplings were good but a little thick from what you get from Japan. Ordered hot Sake but came out like warm, kinda surprised theres not a dedicated Sake warmer. Had 4 different sushi rolls which I thought were really different but actually tasted similar, no sauces, crunch, or other flavors to separate each from another except shaved lemon or jalapeño. The sushi pieces were very good had Salmon belly, Sake, and scallop very good not bloated. I’ve eaten sushi all over the states and this was a above average but not far from that.

    We sat on the roof and as it was mine and my girlfriend’s second year anniversary, the server brought us a free dessert as well as a couple of cocktails. Food was great (have to say, the sushi spot by our house in chamblee is still the best in Atlanta— our old house was in Decatur and we lived in midtown before so have tried most sushi places in Atl), service was phenomenal, and I would give 5 out of 5 stars. The male server upstairs with the parted hair down the middle was awesome and super attentive to our table—cool guy too.

    Everything was great my only complaint is that the place smelled a little weird when I walked in which can be a huge turn off for a resturant. The food was great I think the smell came from these tiny little oil like candles on the table. I hope they see this and replace those. The smell of them was not great.

    Overall experience was okay. The rooftop bar was a bit underwhelming considering the location of the venue didn’t have much of a city view and was set in a parking lot. Cocktails were good, but were pretty light. For $31, the otoro spoons tasted so bland. The otoro sashimi had bones in it — not sure if that’s supposed to be there as I have never found bones in sashimi before, so that was very unpleasant to find. All the flavors of the sashimi and nigiri we ordered was very underwhelming. They didn’t have the melt-in-your-mouth feeling you normally get from good quality fish. The ikura tasted more sweet than salty, which almost made it taste like soap. The uni was supposedly fresh from Japan, but it wasn’t good either. The okurrr roll was just as flavorless with the wagyu being super tough. However, the staff members were very nice and provided good service. Wouldn’t come back though.

    O-ku is usually a great dining experience but this trip was just off the mark. Service was slow, sushi came out warm and their A5 Wagyu didn’t taste good. Disappointing experience but still a good restaurant

    As lovers of fine sushi, we decided to try the omakase experience with the beverage pairings & it was outstanding. Compared favorably to much more expensive experiences in the Northeast. The quality was top notch and the quantity perfect. Highly recommend this to any & all sushi lovers.

    Sushi was ok, definitely not worth the price. Service wasn’t great, waited forever for the food and one of my drinks never came. Only three of us and we were sat in a large round table wa Kar sly by the front doors.
