Best Catered Food, EVER!.
We have loved going to Okura for many years. With large groups or just one person the warm friendly staff has always made us feel special. Yes, service can be slow on weekends, but it's worth the wait.
When it came time for a really special event, Victor, Amy, Susan, and the rest of the staff, went all-out! They arrived right on time, set-up quickly, cleaned, served, etc., and MADE THIS AN EVENT TO BE FOREVER REMEMBERED. Our friends and family have been raving about the wonderful service and over-the-top delicious food, 'We've never been to an event with such outstanding food!'
The menu was a mix of Japanese and Chinese dishes. While the sashimi and rolls pushed the costs up, the LoMein, Chicken & Broccoli, Beef Teriyaki, etc., kept the total VERY reasonable. Our special requests like, Dungeoness Crab, & Tiramisu (yes, Tiramisu!) were deliciously executed.
If you want a special party without the usual menu, I HIGHLY recommend Okura Restaurant.
Victor, Amy, & all at Okura, you are the best!
Try UTAGE, then you know the difference.
I have to say it is an average among the Japanese Restaurant in Delaware. Put the freshness of the fish aside, the sushi rice is not much taste.
If you go for the best sushi and friendly service, UTAGE is the best of all!! They have the Japanese owner for the past 20 years, food quality is unbeatable. If you would like to experience the truely Japanese, UTAGE is the ONLY place to go in this area.
friendly people but not the freshest fish. I'm always searching for the best sushi in DE (as I used to live in NYC and had it soo good) and Jasmine (on 202) is still the place to beat. I liked Okura and the service was great, but the pure quality of the sushi just wasn't there. They laughed when I asked if they had toro (Jasmine almost always has it available, especially on the weekends) and the salmon was almost white in color (not normal). The unagi was fabulous however and I've heard from friends that they specialize in rolls and other kitchen-prepared items so we might go back. But for now, Jasmine is still the best.
Best Japanese Cuisine Anywhere. Okura's is the best all-around Japanese retaurant I've ever been to. Not only is the cuisine top-notch and affordable, their Guest service is so personalized and fantastic as to not be believed. The service is friendly and the proprieters make every effort to get to know their guests. Go once and you will find that you will make every effort to get back at any opportunity!
Phenomenal Sushi!!!. I've had sushi many places and nothing beats Okura...not even the snooty, overpriced establishments in the city. The service and atmosphere are personable and the sushi is fantastic. The portions are substantial and the fish is always delicious and fresh. The kitchen does not disappoint either with a large selection of cooked entrees on the menu. If you are a sushi fan, this is a must try. You won't be disapointed.
