Wonderful Food and Fabulous Staff

This is a great little restaurant. The sushi is always fresh and plentiful. The tempanyaki grill and other menu items are well prepared and delicious.

I cannot express how delicious the food is at Osakas. I have eaten at various Japanese Restaurants and walk away very disappointed in the food. Osakas makes their own Ginger Salad Dressing along with the Mayo dipping sauce for the fish. The food is always fresh and the staff is awesome. No matter if you are at the Tapinaki Tables... More

I recently discovered Osaka in the White City Mall area of Shrewsbury, MA. It was a pleasant surprise for lunch. There are many shops and restaurants in this area and we just happened to pick this one. The spicy tuna roll was excellent - served with a nice garden salad. The spring rolls were less than ideal since they had... More

Osaka, with its easy to miss storefront, doesn't look like anything special, but as they say, you can't judge a book by its cover! This place was a pleasant surprise. The sushi is so tasty with the Red Sox roll being my favorite. I have also been there for teppanyaki and that for sure does not disappoint. Fried rice there... More

We have been to several other similar restaurants in Worcester and Shrewsbury, but none even come close to the quality, value and taste of Osaka. The ginger based salad dressing is so delicious, it could be eaten by the bowl. All of the cooking table meals are good, but the salmon stands above the rest; finished with teriyaki sauce, butter...

I like their food...but for what you get, it's not worth it. If you order an entrée it comes to around 15$ minimum. Also, when ordering takeout, the give you small containers of sauce and if you ask for another one, they will charge you extra.

Great family restaurant. Kids will love the entertaining preparation of food on the grill, including a flaming volcano made of onions and trying to catch flying zucchini in their mouths. They even prepared a two-headed dragon roll so my kids would not have to fight over who gets the head. Adults will love the potent scorpion bowl (with two straws),... More

Stopped in for a Saturday lunch. Very pleased with the fresh food prepared for our family. The miso soup was delicious, the salad was crisp, fresh with chef prepared ginger dressing, teppan yaki dinners were yummy, sushi and sashimi were freshly prepared and cleverly presented. We will definitely return.

My family and I eat here often. They were closed for renovations and we tried other similar restaurants. Not even close! The staff is great! Friendly and courteous. Best fried rice anywhere!

Love this place. Such friendly staff, and amazing food at cheap prices. They we're recently closed for renovations for a long period of time. Each time I was in the area I stopped by to see when it was going to reopen. Finally it's up and running, and everything looks fantastic. Great atmosphere. Couldn't see myself going anywhere else while... More
