Great quality meal

Me and my friends visited O-Tokuda for a nice causal evening. When we got there, we were a little disappointed with the decor. To say we had heard really great things about the restaurant, we were expecting a little more from it, it was quite basic. The staff were very helpful and always on hand... read more

O-Tokuda is a Japanese-Thai fusion restaurant that offers a buffet service. But its big selling point is that the buffet is not self-service from trays that have been on hotplates for ages; everything is cooked to order. There are over a hundred items on the menu and while a few attract an extra charge, most fall within the single price... More

We go regularly to o-tokuda, for family birthdays etc, always friendly, prompt service. And the all you can eat Japanese menu is excellent, very varied with wonderful tastes. Superb value for money. We will definitely be back again soon.

Been here a few times, it's always consistently good. The food is well cooked to order, and you can order as much as you like. A great place to try all sorts of different food you may not have eaten before. Pity it where it is, it deserves to be in a really nice situation. Can't wait to go back

Haven't visited for a few years - last time I went it was tapanyaki and a very fun, enjoyable night and great food! Now........its fallen into the all you can eat trap service although still quite good doesn't make up for a lack of quality food which made the place great !! Acceptable with friends yes but I would consider... More

I booked a table for my 30th birthday, 7 of us in total. My friends and I having been eating at O-Tokuda for years, sometimes twice a week, and the service has always been fantastic, but sadly it is in decline. We went on a Thursday evening and it was relatively busy, but there were some empty tables. There were... More

I could honestly eat here every day if I had the money! I've never had a bad experience and always recommend it to everyone I know! Chesterfield is truly lucky to have a place like O-Tokuda. The food is exquisite (chicken mango rolls being my absolute favourite I could eat them all day!). The staff are friendly and always greet... More

Never had a bad meal here and the staff are helpful and efficient. You always walk out of here feeling full up. We must go 2/3 times a month and it's always brilliant. Best to book in advance as it gets full very quickly. We always spend ages on the starter when having the all-you-can-eat, then only go onto the... More
