Had such an unbelievable experience at O-Ku in Charlotte NC. I read some of the reviews and was a little nervous but so happy I still went. We went for the sushi happy hour which is half price rolls from 5PM to 7 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays. All of the rolls were half price except the three specialty rolls that were over $20 each. That was completely fine. We actually still ordered the hot and heavy roll -even though it was $28 because it was lobster and shrimp and so worth it. The service was impeccable. Our server Iris was outrageous, amazing, super fast and accommodating. She gave us a lot of recommendations that were killer. They also had a pretty good beer, wine and sake list as well. It took us awhile to get a reservation, but the restaurant was probably a quarter full. If you want to take advantage of the happy hour, I would just walk in. It was a Monday though. Id definitely go back but probably only for the happy hour. The prices were expensive for Charlotte.
This place has good sushi. The staff seemed friendly. I went during Happy Hour 4-7 on Mondays & Wednesdays. Yep... 50% off rolls! I had the Firecracker and Potato Roll. Also, not in the picture were Appetizers of SouthEnd Shrimp (pretty good) and fried rice (very good). I would not return during normal hours as the menu prices do not reflect the size of the rolls, with the exception of Hot & Heavy roll, its huge! In all... A clean establishment, friendly staff, not so big sushi rolls, and not quite the best I've ever had. However, I would return for happy hour.
Best authentic sushi! I dont do much sushi but visited here for the daughter who loves sushi. What an experience! Short of visiting Japan. Will visit many times to try different offerings. Rock shrimp salad and miso soup to start - highly recommended. Red dragon sushi roll highly recommended. Our server Tony was great. Wish they had pictures for the menu, some of the dishes are unfamiliar.
Brought my wife here for our 7th wedding anniversary, Iris and Nick made this the absolute most memorable experience we could have asked for. This is the kind of experience you want to have to look back on through the years. Stellar service, but the food, oh my the food was even better if thats possible. Best sushi/ romantic dining experience in Charlotte to date. Just look at the photos, then do yourself a favor, and treat yourself and your loved one to a night you wont forget!
Delicious. You definitely pay for it, but my gracious. So far its the best sushi Ive had in Charlotte. Drinks are cool too, loved the Hello Kitty if you like a sweet martini type drink. Fabulous gluten free menu, I was able to have tempura! (Cross contamination doesnt bother me, Im sure there are options but they said the fryer is shared.)
