Fine Japanese Cuisine

Whether you yearn for great sushi or hibachi—you cannot go wrong here. Proprietor Teresa and her staff always make you feel so welcome. They’ll coach you to try items you will love, but would not have been comfortable to order without help. Atmosphere is good and is easy to find.

Teresa is a real treasure. Do not pass up the tunas nachos, garlic edemame, fortune fluke or the best seafood lemongrass soup. Wait staff friendly and prompt. Jason at the sushi bar an artist...Love going there.

First off the service is sloooow. If you plan on less than 2 hours for the below then do not go. We ate with family and children under 10 years old. It took a 45 minutes from the time you get seated to when our soup came out. Just way too long. Sushi very good Soup very good Salads very... More

Sushi is very good. Restaurant is nice but a little cluttered inside and outside. Service is below average. Prices are a little high...and worse: Teresa's regular coupon gives a discount when you buy 2 dinners ...but don't mention that you can't have a sushi dinner as a dinner with the coupon...even though it's on the same dinner menu. Shifty. (Don't... More

My wife and I enjoyed our lunch here very much. The menu selections, ingredients, atmosphere and preparation were more than satisfactory. The clincher was the complimentary Ahi Tuna appetizer that the friendly sushi chef brought to our table. It was outstanding! We are sure to return often.

I just returned from a delicious lunch with my friend. I had the day's special,Spicy Chicken Wrap in Lettuce Leaves and my friend had the Beef Filet wrapped around onion along with some kind of fried rice. They were both appetizers and it was plenty of food for lunch. Our server was a very polite and helpful young man. I... More

Decided to stay in town for the night looking around and found Teresa's osaka. Walked in and was greeted and asked to sit at the sushi bar or table. After we sat down they gave us warm towels to wash our hands. Then handed the menu out, gave enough time to think of what I wanted (staff is very nice).... More

We had a business gathering here last week . I had not been to Osaka's since Teresa moved from Ortley. Yes a long time and you can be assured I will return much sooner. The food was delicious and the service was excellent .

Teresa's, really is a special place. Sushi was extremely creative and super fresh. I loved trying so many different things and honestly loved them all. I can't wait to go back.

Teresa's has undergone a transformation. She was always famous for her sushi & sashimi, but now she has expanded not only her menu but the size of her restaurant. She is constantly trying out new menu items, and I for one am thrilled with the results. In addition to the new menu items, there are always specials. You can even... More
