Went to Oki's last night for the 1st time since I had a restaurants.com gift certificate and ended up leaving without using it! To start - the host told us it would be a 45' wait for a table which was fine since we expected to wait. We said we would wait at the bar and was given a drink menu. The drink menu didn't have prices so my husband asked the host was the price range on the drinks were and said jokingly "when I don't see prices does that mean they are very expensive?" The host didn't take that well and send "well why'd you come here? Did you come to eat or drink?" He gave us a digital beeper system for the table and we sat at the bar. The bar was dirty and there were no patrons sitting there. The bartender kept walking back and forth but didn't ask us if we wanted anything. He didn't even clear the area! My husband hit a button on the pager and the light went off. When the bartender was near us he asked, "what happens if the light goes off since I hit it by accident?" The bartender replied, "other than distracting me from making my drinks." We all just looked at each other in shock as he walked away again! We had been there for 20 minutes already. He then walks over and takes our menu that was on the dirty bar and studies it. It seems like he was trying to figure out what type of drink someone ordered and walks away with our menu!" Keep in mind, there was noone at the bar and he was simply ignoring us. We decided to leave but on the way out told them exactly what they could do with their restaurant!

I've been to Oki's a number of times over the last 10 years but after my last meal there I think that's it unless they fix things. It's sad that it was at one point the best Japanese Steakhouse in R.I.

My boyfriend and I visit Oki's all the time. The staff is wonderfull and so is the service! We eat both sushi and hibachi. I love the salad, soup and the sauce is the best. \r
The bar area is great but I do admit the hibachi area needs

I have to say it could use a facelift but the food was excellent. I would go back more often but a little pricey for an every weekend kind of place to eat out at

I have been going to Oki for over 30 years. I went last week and was disappointed. It is very difficult to get past how dirty it is. As your walking on the tile floor or standing there waiting, the dirt is just caked on and is disgusting.

I have been going to Oki's for many years (20+) and I have to say that in that time things have changed that shouldn't have. The portions are a lot smaller than they used to be.. the salad is lame but the dressing is excellent. The decor in the bar is very techno and modern but the hibachi part of the restaurant is dingy and old looking, I think they still have the original carpeting! The chefs are excellent but I can't understand them when they speak. The sushi is ok but, I have had better. They are quite pricey so if I don't have a coupon, I don't go. Good hibachi food, the tuna is excellent as is the salmon and beef. I was not impressed with the swordfish, it tasted like cardboard and I was not impressed with the lobster tail as it was just ok yet very expensive. Best bang for your buck.. filet and shrimp or scallops.
The waitress Linda is excellent!! Always remembers me and what I like, she is super nice and accommodating!

I have been going to Oki Steakhouse for at least 10 years now. The staff is ok, the food is good but a day later you are felling sick from it, and to top it off the place is dirty and dingy...there are a few other Habachi places in RI and are much nicer, better food, and cleaner

This is one of the original Hibachi restaurants in Rhode Island, before this recent spurt of new Asian restaurants. The food is good, but the restaurant tends to be very smoky, not from smoke but from the cooking.

I have mixed reviews.

The environment and atmosphere was fantastic - but I think it had everything to do with the people I was with and our hibachi chef.

Not the best location - no is it in the best shape - so if you are looking for an appealing outside appearance you will not find it.

Food wise - was not at all impressed with the sushi. Was more vegetarian inclined than I was used to - with less than traditional combinations. The spicy tuna roll made my boyfriend sick for the entire next day.

Hibachi side, the chef made a fantastic onion volcano - and was quite heavy on the fire which we all applauded. I had the salmon - and it was perfectly seasoned. The shrimp was fantastic - and I enjoyed the salad... the soup?? The picture Victoria took literally sums it up - funions meets broth.

Very expensive. I will be trying another restaurant before returning.

Pros: atmosphere

Cons: price exceeds quality

I used to like the restaurant, but their 2-for-1 dinner special is a scam. My wife and I went with our daughter and when we got the bill, we found they had taken the kid's meal off (rather than the lesser of the adult meals). I complained and was told that was the owner's policy - even though it isn't mentioned on the coupon card.

This is by far the best Japanese restaurant anywhere around the Providence area. However, I don't eat Sushi so I can not judge this particular aspect.
But EVERYTHING from soup, salad, main dish is WONDERFUL

Love Oki's Steakhouse, we always have a fun time when we go there. The staff is friendly and the food is delicious. Even my picky 6 year old will eat the veggies here.

We had reservations at 7:30 for a birthday dinner. We were not seated until 9. The prices were pretty high. After we received the bill of $300 they brought out a tiny piece of cake with a candle on it. The waitress then took our bill and added an extra 9.50 for that cake. I spoke with a manager because we were not told they would charge for this, we didnt ask for it. The manager would not remove that from the bill.

Pros: none

Cons: waited too long/overpriced food

.

The new $5 appetizer menu is fantastic, it has a wide variety of foods to choose from and the sushi is fantastic.
The hibachi is highly overrated and over priced, I won't do that again, we spent way too much money and were disappointed.
Overall, the restaurant needs a thorough cleaning as it looks quite worn out and needs new decor.
If you sit at the tables near the bar,be prepared for a lot of noise as the TV is always on sports and the guys who hang out at the bar and usually pretty raw and loud. So beware of that.

I go to okis on mondays an tuesdays for the 5dollar menu. The eel and avacado tempura roll for five dolars is awesome. Sit at sushi and you can be full for 15 dollars.

My boyfriend and I decided we would try OKI's for the first time on valentines day. Yes the building was a little wierd but that was ok. It was when we waited forever our sushi that we started getting restless.. then we had to ask 3x for glasses to go with our saki.... then when our chef arrived to cook our food and our sushi still hadn't come the waitress arrived to tell us it would be coming soon. We told her to keep it was to late our food had arrived. Both her and the waiter both made a point to tell us the manager didnt have enough staff on and things were crazy. I will give credit where due the food was fantastic to bad we couldn't get our sushi served at the sushi restaurant! But things went down hill again when the bill came and they had charged us for the two sushi's we declined due to their tardiness. We were also charged us for an entire meal. I had to go find the manager and have him fix the bill. All in all they were over charging us $65. We will DEFFINATELY NOT be returning to OKI's nor will I ever recommend it to anyone. GO TO SHOGUN! SHOGUN HAS EXCELLENT FOOD SHOGUN HAS EXCELLENT WAIT STAFF AND SHOGUN IS CLEAN!!!!!!!!

Went there for a dinner with an out of town client becasue I heard it was good and while the food was good enough the place is DIRTY! The carpets are gross and the place needs a hose-down or something! It looks like it hasn't been renovated (ore really cleaned) since the 80's. It is wierd that it is in a strip mall... go someplace else for hibachi!

The one good thing to say about Oki's is the food is good, still. But, for the money you pay, which is what you pay in 5 star restaurants ($25 a plate, come on) you should get a clean atmosphere and clean bathroom. When I first dined at Oki's 15 years ago, it was impressive. Now, the cooks cannot perfom the food tossing tricks well anymore, and the bathroom is dirty with overflowing wastebaskets and water all over the sink. It even smells. If they cannot keep their bathrooms clean, I wonder how clean the kitchen is? Oki's time has ended. About service: The last time I dined there, I made an 8pm reservation and waited until 8:45 to be seated. They also try to trick you into buying their fried rice when placing your order. (white rice is included in your meal) I cannot say I went on a bad night as the last 5 times I dined there I have been disappointed. There are a bunch of new Habachi restaurants cropping up in RI, check them out.

I want to first off say that for those of you on here that have written bad reviews for Okis have either been there on a bad night (which I have yet to experience), or are just nit picking for no apparent reason, either way I couldn't disagree more with your opinions.
My fiance' and I have been to Oki's alone or with different groups of people on no less than a dozen different occasions and have had nothing but outstanding food and an outstanding experience. We went again tonight with 2 children and they LOVED IT!!! The chef put on an amazing show for the kids keeping us laughing the whole time. We also sat with another couple and their son whom also ranted and raved about the food and atmosphere. We go to Okis whenever we have the time to sit for a while and eat and also when we have the extra cash. The only complaint about Oki's I have is the seating. It is a little cramped, but so are all of the restaurants I've been to where they cook in front of you on a grill. Over all Oki's has never been anything but a wonderful experience for me and my family as well as any and all friends we have been there with. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT TO ANYONE :)

We just went there for habachi yesterday!
Once we got seattled down, I got a terrible smell from the area where i was.
The food I had, I couldn't say that was food at all, too salty.
I felt I was having soy sauce but not my steak.
We spend $100 on this meal for 2 people and Won't come back again.
Doesn't worth the price!

I've been here a few times and always have a great time. Fun atmosphere. Great drinks and they also have real ginger in their ginger ale. Unfortunately, the place needs a good cleaning! The habachi griddles have caked on grease and grime around the edges.
