I have been here for the Hibachi experience and just recently visited the regular section of the restaurant. Man this place is busy...like eating in a train station. Too busy, too cramped and way too noisy. Food for me was really nothing special at all. I had Hibachi Salmon..meh...wife had Pad Thai which really was a disappointment. And we all... More

I ordered the hibachi chicken and scallops to go. cost was just under $24. The chicken wasn't that good (what little I got) and I only got 4 scallops, a small amount of rice and even less vegetables. You get more food at a Japanese take out stand in the food court at the mall, and except for the 4... More

We love this place! Food is amazing. Not a long wait. They do seem to try and rush you a bit so we always tip well and stay as long as we need. Presentation is amazing. Love the yellow submarine roll.

Not bad, and not un-filling. Big appetites like mine sometimes feel shy around sushi. Not to worry: you can have your fish and eat it too. A little pricey, but not overly so. Go with a charming companion and you won't notice the bill.

There are no shortage of Japanese restaurants in Northampton, particularly if you're interested in sushi. That said, Osaka is the clear choice, whether you're looking for sushi/sashimi, something off the hibachi or a warm entree. The other evening five of us had a great meal at Osaka. It is known for its specialty rolls, which range in price from $10-$15.... More

Great place to visit with a group so as to try as many dishes as possible. Everything we ordered was delicious- including the cocktails. The atmosphere is a bit boisterous, but the food is truly excellent. Try some of the unique specialty rolls.

I'm sitting in this very poor excuse of a Japanese Restaurant. Have you ever had a "Pacific Roll" wrapped in a pink colored allegedly edible wrapper? How about two MICROWAVED hot Japanese entrées; so overdone that the rice was melted. This establishment gets "WORST OF 2015" by me. Absolutely disgusting.
