We've gone to Okura twice, once to eat in and once as a take out order, and they've been very solid both times. My wife and I ordered an 8-roll special on the first occasion, and the sushi chef threw in an extra specialty roll. Most recently, we placed a take out order with 12 rolls. The fish is fresh,...

Okura is my ultimate destination for Japanese Cuisine, it really is my secret spot; so it almost pains me to give it away. The service is clutch and if you go in a couple times they really remember your preferences for any special orders or subtleties you might enjoy with your food. A+

This restaurant always has great sushi - the fish is fresh and the service is fast. They have an extensive Japanese menu and the value is good. They serve wine by the carafe, which is ok but offer a wide variety of specialty drinks - fun for all!

My Wife and I are always amazed by the quality of the Sushi and the friendliness of the people. The Sushi and Sashimi is the freshest I have had this side of San Francisco but at very affordable prices. The food always looks attractive enough to be on the cover of a magazine and there is just no substitute for... More

Been there several times for sushi which is average at best but knowing that we went there out of convenience. The head waitress (owner) pushed us to try the dragon roll said it "very good". It turned out that they had prepared it hours before for another customer and attempted to recycle it on us while charging us full price... More

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
