    Whoever wrote that oku is not great for vegetarians is a dumbass. This is actually the only place in charleston where you can get delicious veggie rolls. Totally veg and vegan friendly !!

    I mainly go here for the nightlife. It gets crazy! It's hard to get a drink once it gets packed, but the DJ is always jumpin on Saturday nights. Definitely my go to spot in downtown Charleston.

    Order the martini with the habanero vodka. But DON'T get the 5 Toros 5 ways. It's like 10 chiclet sized pieces of fish (but sliced as thin as paper) for 20$ it looks like Barbie doll food!

    Rock shrimp salad can be app for four people! Try the surf and turf roll and pork belly apps. They are big enough for dinner---and delish.

    Happy hour MWF is an amazing deal, the staff is so friendly. Swordfish/lime roll and yellowfin roll were divine. Cocktails were inventive and delicious. Love!

    Go on Thursday's! There is a hip-hop violinist that plays live music after 8. O-Ku has a very cool atmosphere, and pretty decent happy hour prices.

    If you get tuna, order a quail egg on the side (one order = 2 eggs). The baked scallop roll and potato roll are our two faves - both rich and delicious. Read more

    Okonomiyaki was slightly salty but very good, interesting Korean twist on it by adding Kimichi to it. Grilled duck was delicious and tender.

    Very good sushi, and it transforms into one of the most popular dance clubs in down on the weekends at night.

    Waited over 2 hours for mediocre, over-priced food. Got a few apologies, but that's about it. Not a large variety of vegetarian options. Bad wine. Do not recommend.
