Excellent food, drinks, and service. Even if you are not into SUSHI you will find something here that you will like. Just ask.

Tough to get a drink at this spot on a Friday night. Lively crowd and great music, but the amount of people in the bar made it difficult to move around or see anything but the person next to you. I am sure this is a great place to eat, but we were not there for that aspect of the place. One drink and we moved on to greener pastures.

Good food, but basically turns into a club at night with a DJ and music so loud you can't have a conversation. Pretty pricey too for what it is.

The best and most expensive sushi I have ever had. O-Ku has ruined me on all other sushi. Great product, presentation and service. A must visit for sushi fans.

O-Ku is rated one of the best Japanese restaurants in Charleston. The entrees are fabulous. I had the special which was a grilled tilefish. Cooked & seasoned perfectly. My wife & daughter had the chicken teriyaki which they both loved. The sushi which while very fresh is cut very small & sliced very thin. My otoro which was very expensive was cut so thin that it was separated at the fat lines. Interestingly, the tuna sushi was lightly seared which was a disappointment. Kinda not really sushi? Worth a visit but stick to the cooked food. The service could have been better, barely average.
