Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to daikon radishes. Get a sailor's worth of energizing Japanese cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of noodle dishes, steak, and more at Otani Sushi, located in Northland.
Otani Sushi has provided Columbus with authentic Japanese cuisine for 27 years. Slurp succulent noodle dishes with a build-your-own dinner option (starting at $7) or opt for house-specialty sushi such as the Ohio State roll ($6.50), with breaded shrimp, cucumber, and masago, to fuel an afternoon of magical carp fishing. Sushi-grade grilled salmon ($16) and rib-eye steak ($21) are both topped with Otani's house teriyaki sauce.
Every Wednesday through Saturday night is karaoke night, so belt an ode to the fried-tofu starter ($5) to warm up the mouthcrowd for the fried flounder and its baroque lead guitarist, kara-age ($17). For an additional fee, Otani's private karaoke room is open every night of the week for dedicating musical medleys to an audience of only a few close friends and acquaintances from computer camp.
Not valid with happy-hour specials.
Under the leadership of executive chef Kazushige Honda, Otani Sushi's culinary team crafts authentic Japanese fare, all highlighted on a massive menu of rolls, tempura, and teriyaki dishes. Guests can customize their own roll or feast upon sashimi, nigiri, or specialty sushi such as the Hard Rock roll, an amalgamation of shrimp, crab, and salmon. Cooks receive roll orders, along with hot entrees and starters, until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday, and up to 30 guests can enjoy soirees until 2 a.m. seven days a week in the soundproof private party room. There, from a selection of more than 100,000 songs in English and Japanese, visitors read lyrics whizzing by on 40-inch flat-screen TV, croon to their selected song, and shed a single tear at their own heartfelt performance. Otani Sushi also hosts karaoke sessions for the rest of its diners seven days a week.
