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.

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

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
