Centrally located, this Japanese food restaurant consistently provides fresh, authentically prepared Japanese dishes in both the lounge and dining area. You have the choice of tables, booths or the more private traditional Japanese sunken seating areas. Menu had a large variety of choices and service was good. Decor could use updating but didn't affect the quality of the food.

Went to osho's for dinner with my family. There's a 5 year old in the group and she wants noodles, they had one dish with the noodles, we asked if they could do a half order because it was suppose to be really big, No we don't do half orders. We asked if they could do a full order but... More

This is probably the oldest Japanese restaurant in Lethbridge. I don't even know how many years ago they moved to the 4th street location (more than 15?) but I don't think they have made any changes since then. The booths in the back are in need of new upholstery and a refresh. The food was okay but definitely not great... More

Not sure what part of japan serves fried potatoes and carrots but it seems odd to metro incorporate such in their specials. I realize Taber (potatoes) are grown not too far but surely they can fill the plate with some other filler than potatoes! We went in for a quick lunch, I had the soba noodles, mainly noodles with little... More

I have never in my life had a worse Japanese food experience. I am shocked at how it could even be called a Japanese restaurant. You will get a more authentic and delicious experience eating at Edo Japan. I have been to Japan, China, US, and many other countries and not have eaten something like this.... not worth the money...

Considering the droves of people that show up here somewhat baffles me. Appears to be one of those 'trendy' places where the people go to just to be social. Truly I am a foodie and have had the opportunity to eat Globally. The food at O-Sho is just simply inconsistent , over rated and cheaper in quality in comparison to... More

the good: The Ikura was fresh, and the miso soup was good. Also enjoyed the smoked salmon maki. the passable: The avocado role was avocado challenged.........but ok. The bad: They call that over-salted greasy noodle dish yaki-soba? -We told them we were craving vegetables; other than an extra large garden salad, they had nothing they could make us. They don't...

Recently visited O-Sho for an outstanding lunch. The food here is always terrific. We enjoyed the Age Dash Tofu (Deep Fried Tofu with House Special Sauce) and several sushi rolls. My favorites were the Jurassic and the Caterpillar. I have only ever eaten in thei main room of the restaurant, which is somewhat void of character. Don't let that deter... More

I have been here many times, for both pick up and to dine, and thought that I should finally contribute a review. The service here can be hit and miss sometimes, but the food is usually quite good. The gyoza are made locally and the sushi is usually very fresh and the rice sticks together properly. Sashimi here is also... More

I dine here regularly. It is comparable to sushi in Vancouver. Service is quick and pleasant and the dishes are always good. The backrooms are great for larger groups or families.
