This place has really good, high quality sushi without paying Neko's prices. Beautiful presentation and outstanding flavors! At about half the price. I'll never easy sushi anywhere else again. One visit and I was sold. I've been able to try new things like escolar and yellowfin. And the sashimi tuna is the best I've had and I've been halfway around the world. Don't miss out.
Food excellent and sushi was delicious. However, service is terrible and I really feel like the waiters were staring at me. This happened twice and as soon as I get up they almost run to table to get the tip. This attitude makes me uncomfortable.
I wasn't sure about this place when I arrived after it was recommended to me. The sushi is less expensive than many of the quality sushi options - however, I would rank the quality of the food on the same level as some of the more pricey sushi restaurants in Oklahoma. Great value, I'll be back many times!
This is the best sushi in ok. I've been working in sushi restaurant in Colorado Springs and Waco TX. This place has pretty good sushi. The lady in the front is fine, and I don't understand all the bad review about her. If you don't try sushi in there, you are making a huge mistake. Also, I've been In The Raw and never going back there again. They just don't know how to cook sushi rice.
They have no idea how to cook sushi rice. Never going back there again.
An excellent place to eat
This is the best sushi in town. I've tried all the sushi restaurants in OKC area and I have to say this one is the best by far.
I had lunch yesterday with a business associate for the first time at In The Raw in hopes of discovering a new favorite restaurant in Bricktown. What I discovered was a sad menu and even sadder food. the Miso soup was room temperature and the Pork Gyoza was over cooked and the rice was simply tasteless (a little salt could have helped a long way). the itr salad was bland and uninspiring. the Gulf Shrimp was simply inedible.Enough of the food, the facility itself looked tired and aged but nothing a little dab of paint, cleaning supplies and some elbow grease could not fix. My associate and I were greeted at entrance by a very friendly floor manager who took us to a booth to the left of the bar directly behind a wait station and a few feet away from the kitchen door. I immediately noticed the dusty wood slats on the wall and that peeked my curiosity. I was facing the wall and could not stop my eyes from wandering around the dining room. I kept looking for a sign of hope between every step of the table service rendered by an efficient but not so friendly server, There was none to be found. I looked over to the right and over the shoulders of my associate, I could see splatters of what looked like soda on the wall and right below the big art piece. I looked to my right and just under my table only to see more dirt on the wall all the way to the kitchen door. I kept wondering if anyone working there knew that there were such things as soap, water and towels. I thought the filth I was seeing all over the dining room had affected my tastes buds so I asked my associate about the meal and the reply confirmed that my taste buds were just fine.I paid the bill, excused myself to go to the restrooms and my horror continued. I opened the door and immediately noticed the not-so-fresh scent and the urinals totally exposed to the right of me. Anyone walking down the hallway could catch a glimpse if the door suddenly opened by an other person. The partition between the urinals was gone and all that was left were screws and broken hinges. As I looked up, the sight got even worse, a wall that had tares all over. Someone ripped whatever frame off the wall and thought that those holes were ok. I washed my hands, dried them with paper towels and when I turned around to use the trash can, I saw an old and tired round metal can, over-flowing with its lid laying besides it almost like a wounded warrior that had many battles and lost all of them. I reached to the door and looked to my right only to see a dusty corner and a cob-web as a final reminder of where my food came from. God, I do not want to think about the state of the kitchen. My stomach turned and I could not spend one more second inside the restaurant. I hurried my associate and we both left extremely unimpressed.It is sad that a group of managers and owners at a decent restaurant in the heart of Bricktown would accept such low standards for themselves. I think with the prices they command on their menu, they could have afforded some cleaning supplies and better staff. Where is the pride? I WILL NEVER NEVER EVER GO BACK AGAIN.
WORST DINING EXPERIENCE!!! My family and I gathered together to celebrate my birthday. I came a little later than the rest of my party. I asked the server if I could please have a glass of water since he was delivering drinks to the table. He rudely replies is that not a glass of water beside you? (Which obviously wasn't mine, it was my brothers) I told him that it wasn't mine and that I just sat down. He then comes back later and addresses me rudely again with my back facing him and yells are you going to eat or what?!?! I was baffled beyond that point and went to talk to management which was no help and requested that he would not return to our table. I never got a simple apology or anything!! I've worked in the service industry throughout college and understand how stressful it could possibly be on a busy day , but that's absolutely no way to treat a customer. My family and I will not be returning to this establishment. Hopefully this review will help others from experiencing the nightmare I endured.
Great food and service. We eat here for lunch quite often. The owner takes great pride in his work and always has fresh fish and new ideas to keep us coming back. Now, its the only sushi place I eat at.
