Favorite Japanese Restaurant

Nice and comfortable place to eat. Food is excellent, especially the Sushi! Service is outstanding. Great place for lunch or dinner. Prices are in line with other Japanese restaurants, but their food is superior.

Teresa and her team prepare fantastic food in a welcoming atmosphere. My girlfriend is a sushi aficionado and she loved the food. Beautiful decor in a clean setting top off the experience. Prices are reasonable.

Stopped here after leaving Seaside, and I am so glad I did. The menu is eclectic, interesting and delicious. There are plenty of souls, appetizers and specials. In addition to hibachi and noodles plates. But the star is the sushi. The rolls are beautiful and tasty. There are so many great options we had trouble me narrowing it down. We... More

We were in the Toms River area and in the mood for sushi. Read some reviews and stopped in at Teresa's Osaka. When you enter, the sushi bar is off to the right of the hostess stand. A smallish dining room is directly in front of you. We were greeted by the hostess and seated immediately. Took a few minutes... More

We were staying up the road and saw Teresa's from the highway after a very long day spent touring NYC. Teresa served us herself and the food was definitely authentic cuisine reminding us that we need to get back to Japan soon. The soup, seafood and udon were superb! The dishes were flavorful and not skimpy on the ingredients.

We had a late arrival coming to Seaside Heights and was starved. Took a ride down the main drag of Toms River and found Teresa's Osaka. Was a wonderful experience.

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
