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

we were a large group, like 16 people and we were seated very quickly. The service was very fast and good considering how large of a group we were. We asked for separate checks and they honored our request with no issues. We had Hibachi, it was good but nothing out of the ordinary or exceptional. The people that ordered... More

The food was good - but to be honest I thought my waitress was quite rude and acted like we were bothering her. In addition, the back area where we did hibachi was grungy and too dark. When we walked in I saw food all over the ground and when I was leaving you could see what appeared to be... More

I rate this place very good, but understand that is by New England sushi standards only. Those who have eaten sushi in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas or pretty much any other major US city might be disappointed with the sushi in this entire region but far less so with Osaka. This is the area’s most famous shop and... More

My wife and I went into this restaurant and was seated on a lovely porch and we ask for hibachi so they moved us to a hibachi table and served just the two of us. The chef was wonderful, showed the volcano, threw food to catch, making it fun also. Bottom line food was excellent had both chicken and filet... More

i frequent this restaurant at least once every two weeks since it's close to my home. I usually am seated on the porch (winterized) which provides a great view of the city of Northampton. The tables are small but the portions are generous. There is a little sushi, some Chinese, and some fusion as well as hibachi so there's something... More
