One of the best things about this smart restaurant-bar is that you can enjoy a whole night out in one location. Sip delicious mixed drinks at the bar before gorging on top-notch sushi, then mingle with like-minded souls to the sounds of a live DJ on Thursdays.

We went to Okku as a group of ten for dinner on Thursday night and the service was appalling all night.

We had a table booked for 10pm. When we arrived they shuffled us to the bar and told us the table would be ready shortly. By 10.40pm we were still waiting with no apology. It took a couple of complaints to the manager to see us seated. Once seated service was slow and pushy; the waiters wanted us to increase our order (what we had turned out to be more than sufficient). Some of our food failed to arrive until we asked about it. Some of the cocktails were very poor.

The staff made no gesture to acknowledge the wait. The food was nice but not enough to justify being treated like we should just be grateful for being there. We would have spent a lot but were not inclined to as a result of our poor treatment.

Would not go back!

Great lounge areas (upstairs and downstairs) to have dinner and drinks. Music is always amazing and the bartenders that call themselves liquid chef's nice touch considering their cocktails are weird and fantastic. Try the Japanese Velvet. I would also recommend booking in advance as we didn't and had to beg!!

Great lounge areas (upstairs and downstairs) to have dinner and drinks. Music is always amazing and the bartenders have created some excellent cocktails. Try the Japanese Velvet. I would also recommend booking in advance.
