Do you feel that sushi places have become ubiquitous? Noisy, overcrowded and honestly, a bit rushed, with not-so-friendly service? Well then we have a secret. Ok, maybe not so much a secret, as Okura, our favorite place to be, has been rated one of The Best Of Delaware by its readers and editors and has many faithful happy regulars. We... More

Fresh sushi and a staff that treats you like family. What more can you ask for? Sit in a tatami room with your family and celebrate as we do. Or, come by yourself and sit at the sushi bar and chat with the chef. He is amazing and pretty funny too. Amy and Victor, the owners go out of their... More

My husband and I treat ourselves with night out at Okura. Always super fresh sushi. Amy, the owner always makes suggestions that she knows we will like. Grab a seat at the sushi bar for the most fun!!

We sat at the bar which was an excellent idea, because we were able to talk with the the two sushi chefs preparing the food. They prepared some excellent dishes and rolls for my guests and their personality and conversation added to the excellent dishes. The service was outstanding.

We've been getting takeout here for about five years. We recently got practically the same order -- a sashimi deluxe dinner, plus two specialty sushi rolls -- from both Okura and another nearby restaurant, just two weeks apart. (I won't name it, but for locals, the one in the Lowes shopping center in Avondale.) We had never had two sashimi/sushi... More

We always have a wonderful time here. Probably have been here 15 times so far. The service is great, the price is right, and the quality is unmatched. Pretty sure you can't be disappointed here. We generally get some of the higher cost specialty rolls when we come here, but even then its only around $13 for some really big... More

For my wife and I, Asian restaurants mean Sushi and, increasingly for us, Sushi means “rolls”. After 12+ years on the hill west of Hockessin, there is a lot more completion for the Sushi business in the area; but in my opinion Okura’s rolls are still the best. This visit we enjoyed excellent “Oyster”, “Rock ‘N’ Roe” and “Snow Maki”... More

We've been going to Okura for years. The Owners go out of their way to help us and always make great suggestions. We've ordered very large trays for Christmas Eve every year and they always remember our order and get it right. Also, they are really wonderful with our 2 year old. He frequently leaves half the rice on the... More

The folks at Okura are amazing. The sushi is so fresh. Fun to sit at Sushi bar and watch it being assembled. Service is great. The owners make a special point to stop my the table and make suggestions.
