  • oko express: lovely fresh sushi

    by jamiealex Written Jan 29, 2012

    me and my girlfriend went here 2 weeks ago because we heard the sushi was amazing so we ordered a sushi platter and teriyaki chicken dish,sushi was amazing as was the main if a little greasy,my only complaints would be slightly overpriced but worth it as a lot better than ichiban ,staff were friendly but the sushi chef seemed to be eyeing up my girlfriend which made us laugh.

    Favorite Dish: sushi fresh filling and well presented it just think the sushi chef needs to get himself a lady.LOL!!!!!!!!

    Oko - Japanese: Sushi - Seafood - Sushi - Seafood - Glasgow !!!

    If you like seafood / sushi you will need to go to Glasgow to visit OKO.

    Favorite Dish: Go early evening, when they are doing an "eat as much as you can" buffet - for economy, but otherwise its not cheap. Fish for Sushi is expensive because its special - thankfully!

    May not be the best world Sushi but in Scotland its important.

    Oko: Sushi on the belt

    You sit around a conveyer belt and watch the food pass by. As soon as you see something you like you take the dish off the belt. Twice a week there is an all-you-can-eat evening. As a student you get discount and then you can sit for an hour and eat as much as you like. A great opportunity to try all the weird stuff - if you don't like it you just pick another! Soup and dessert included, if you have room for it...

    It's a very cozy place. You get as much ginger and soya as you want and the seats have their own tap with sparkled water, all you need to ask for is a glass!

    If you go another night you pay different depending on the colour of the plate, ranging from 1 pound 50 cents to 4 pounds I think. Do the math and enjoy your food!

    Favorite Dish: Well, what's good with all-you-can-eat is that you can try everything.

  • Oko: Turning Japanese

    by JiminYork Written Jan 22, 2003

    Japanese restaurant in Glasgow, popular with, well, mostly Japanese whenever I’m in. Can’t say I’m a great fan of this style of food, but I’d admit that if you are then Oko probably won’t disappoint. Choose from the menu or from the colour coded plates that pass you on the conveyor loop (colour coded by price.) Yes, there’s sushi, but I usually have Mezzo soup and a hot rice or noodle dish. Or two. Portions aren’t enormous, but then neither are Japanese! The restaurant is owned by Jim Kerr of Simple Minds (remember them?) who normally looked as if he'd had too many Burger Kings, so perhaps he built this as a refuge? Never seen him in though. And Sheena Easton used to drink in the Rock Garden.....

    Favorite Dish: Their Tomato Juice is the best in Glasgow.
