Wow, an amazing "all you can eat" deal. They kept the food coming from the word go. Just make sure that you order what you can eat in the next 5 minutes, and the plates are cleared pretty much instantly and then they ask what you want to have next. You must get the time right and come at the beginning of each sitting, that will maximise the number of dishes you get because they take last orders 1.5hrs in. The food was very tasty and a good range of Japanese classics. We tried just about everything on the menu. Anything we liked a lot, we just ordered again. It was all very fresh, staff were efficient and pleasant and will be going back there for sure.
Great value and excellent food. The staff could have explained how things work a little better but otherwise a great time and would definitely return.
Great quality food, staff are fast and very responsive to any needs. Will say $18 for a child that’s 5years old is abit expensive because he only ate one tiny plate of chicken.
A great experience with friendly staff who are very helpful and attentive. Food is varied and delicious. Will certainly be going back to try other dishes.
The food is good and we love it but service wasn't really great. We are aware that there would be a bit of a wait and we didn't have a problem with that. The problem was we felt like some of the staff are really rude. There was a time when a staff was taking our orders but wasn't even paying attention and just said okay. She then moved on to the next table took their orders-smiling, even made a few jokes then just a few minutes later came out with the same order as we asked for. We did follow up on our orders a few times as we have noticed the trend specially when that particular staff was taking the order. As I said, the food was really good it's just sad that service also has an impact on this review. Hope they review their staff members. I'm sure that the table next to us will be giving Okami a great review.🙄🙄
Was an absolute amazing night and the food was fantastic. Friendly and welcoming staff. The only let down of the night was that we were ordering big but only one meal came at a time, so sometimes we were waiting there hungry. But by the end of the night two or more meals were coming to the table. The quality of the food made up for the wating times.
Never been before. I went with my boyfriend expecting the wait to be forever and decent meals but we got there and received excellent service with very little waiting time between meals and fantastic food. We will definitly be coming back. !
We had a lovely time at Okami. The food was delicious and the service was professional and timely. It was the perfect venue to have the early sitting and then to make our way to the picture theatres nearby for a movie.
Okami is an excellent restaurant that runs only all you can eat. You have about 2 hours to order what ever you want and have it freshly made and brought out to you, every time I have eaten there I have always returned as full as I can be.
Attended the Greensborough location which is very popular. Had the all you can eat option. The food was great. It came out quickly as well which worked well with the 2 hour time frame. Service was friendly and helpful.
