Good Sushi in Northampton

We went to Osaka for a lighter meal before a concert at the Calvin. I had two specialty rolls and my husband had Mango Chicken. I thought the sushi had great presentation, and wonderful flavor. I was very pleased. My husband's chicken just was not my thing. Far too sweet for my taste. His... read more

We went here while on a lacrosse tournament trip with my daughter. We found Osaka on trip advisor, walked in without a reservation and were seated immediately. We sat outside on the porch dining area which was an awesome atmosphere. The sushi and rolls were some of the best I've had (even compared to meals I've had in Tokyo). The... More

From the amazing sake collection to beautiful and impressive sushi Osaka is a gem. To begin order 'Beautiful Boy Sake' which I prefer chilled. Then peruse the sushi menu which it has to be said is incredible. I also prefer to order the stone. It comes to your table with butter and incredible filet mignon which you place on the... More

Although the miso soup was good, there was a urine-like odor in the entryway, the vegetable-tofu curry (quite oily) was mediocre as was the mashed up tuna in the spicy tuna roll. My wife quite enjoyed her Soba noodle soup. Perhaps this place is best for Hibachi?

The food is always fresh and the staff are very attentive. It is a very popular restaurant and the wait for a table can be quite long on Friday/Saturday night. The atmosphere is very bright with light colored wood and there is plenty of room between tables. There is a porch that is also used for dining, if you want... More

I went to Osaka for a birthday hibachi dinner and was not disappointed. We took over a full hibachi bar and there were 2 chefs- 1 for each half. They were both fun and friendly. They gave anyone who wanted it an opportunity to catch zucchini in their mouth or accept a generous amount of saki. You could pick a... More

We were wandering around Northampton and discovered this place just down the hill from Main Street. Flavorful Udon and Donburi hit the spot on a cold November evening. There is a side porch with windows that overlooks the street from up high - nice.

My younger daughter and I had dinner at Osaka Japanese Restaurant while visiting her older sister at college. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our chef was funny and a very good cook. He had my daughter laughing most of the time. The food was cooked to order and was very tasty. We had steak, salmon, and shrimp. Yummy!

It is known that Osaka has great food. When the weather is warm the line to get a table goes out the door. Now that it's cooler everyone waits in the tiny space when you enter the restaurant. The bar without seats takes up most of the space and is surrounded by waiting families. Employees are always weaving their way... More
