Tina Takaya, proprietor, welcomes you to our newest two story restaurant on the water. We feel the key to success is our passion for creating the highest quality food and warm friendly service.

We hope you will enjoy your experience as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.
"We want Locals to feel like Family and Visitors to feel like Locals"

Our menu draws from Asian favorites that inspire and excite such as Wagyu Steak, Japanese Sushi, Chinese Dumplings, Garlic Noodles and fresh local seafood.

We are located in the heart of Santa Barbara’s Waterfront and Funk Zone Districts. Come enjoy lunch or dinner, soak in the sun by day at our waterfront rooftop bar while sipping on a refreshing cocktail surrounded by our beautiful ocean vista and by night, enjoy lounging by the fireplace after a delicious meal and a great glass of wine.

Our chef uses the freshest ingredients from central coast farmers and local fisherman to create dishes with the best of what California has to offer.

    Good sushi (nigiri and rolls), gyoza, and blistered shishitos. There are many other things on the menu, but we didn’t try them. The shishitos were tossed in chili oil, which made them spicier than I prefer, but they were still tasty. All of the fish tasted extremely fresh except for the uni (it’s from Santa Barbara, so I expected it to taste fresher than it did). But the ambiance on the lovely upstairs patio overlooking Cabrillo Blvd was outstanding, and the service was excellent. Overall, Oku is pricey, but worth it for a special outing.

    Service was average. Food was overpriced and presentation was not overly inspiring. Taste was okay but not what we had hoped. We were placed in a back area room by ourselves while other seats were available at the patio or main area. The music was very loud and we felt like an afterthought for the restaurant. We eat sushi and Japanese food regularly and likely would not return.

    Very low food quality. Tourist trap. Our sushi was extra fishy, we had the snow crab. The dynamite fried shrimp seem to have come from the freezer. The mixed drinks were made with very low quality alcohol like Bacardi and you could taste it. I am not sure if there are any high quality sushi restaurants in SB except at the Montecito Inn.

    Nice location. Good service. Food was very well plated but was the standard fair of sweet/spicy sauce over dolled up sushi. This is not fine dining but was a fine time.Good for date or birthday but maybe not for the foodie.

    The food at Oku was superb. We probably had 10 various dishes between the 4 of us, and each was so good that no one could determine their favorite item. The service was exceptional- food came quickly, servers always around to help with great attitudes and extremely polite. The level of training they get must be extensive, because it really was unmatched service. We sat on the rooftop area in the evening, and they had heaters, blankets, and we left just feeling doted upon. Combine that with the amazing food, and we are locals that cannot wait to go back!

    We went to celebrate our anniversary and got a spot with a great view of the water (as I had requested). The food was great & service was prompt & courteous. We didn’t feel rushed and had a nice meal. The chicken wings were really tasty, the short ribs were spot on, & the sushi was fresh & delicious. You’ve got to try the black cod; it was amazing & a perfect compliment to the short ribs. With drinks in hand plus a great view, we had a great time!

    Food was good, not amazing for prices you’re paying though. Our waitress barely checked in with us, forgot a drink order, and entrees came out completely separately leaving one guest waiting to eat and eventually eating by themselves. Not the greatest experience for a grad dinner…

    Wife's food was excellent, but I came for the Lamb Rack and it was pathetic - fatty and small. I am used to the lamb rack at Holdrens, so this dish at OKU was awful in comparison.
