Enjoy Dinner and a Show at Ooka in Doylestown

July 29, 2014 2:01 pm

Impeccable, minimalist decor. Fresh seafood awaiting its transformation into generous portions of sushi and sashimi. And for those who prefer their meals cooked, innovative entrees that include Asian bouillabaisse and the endlessly entertaining hibachi dinner.

The people of Doylestown are flocking to Ooka for exceptional and inventive dishes. The fish here is so fresh, it tastes like it was caught that morning, while artfully prepared sushi rolls are creative and delicious. Don’t overlook the specialty rolls, like the lovingly made lobster tempura roll. If you come in for hibachi, you’ll get more than a perfectly cooked steak; the chefs double as entertainers, making Ooka a great place for a fun and festive dinner. Be sure to take advantage of Ooka’s lunch specials!

The Doylestown District Center Library offers regular story time and singalongs—but what other library lets you meet and greet reptiles?
