Best Shrimp Tempura Roll

My brother and I absolutely love Osaka. We always order a couple of Sapporo's, crab rangoons, egg rolls, and crunchy rolls (shrimp tempura with strings of imitation krab meat draped across the top). They also have great hibachi meals. It's a very laid-back place that reminds me of... read more

Everyone needs one. It's in everyone's trifecta of takeout/comfort eats. You should always have a Chinese place; a Mexican place, a decent steak place. Osaka fits the bill for reasonable priced Chinese. They always deliver good flavors and their sushi offerings don't slouch either. They are nothing if not consistent.

We go to Osaka once a week for their awesome sushi! We've tried other sushi places but always come back to Osaka because it's our absolute favorite. The sushi just melts in your mouth! The service from Heidi is always fantastic!

We waited for our order for 45 min and someone just arrive and 5 minutes later they got our order. We left without eating. oh and they knew the person because our waiter told the other waiter that was her order and she didnt care at all. I will never go back.

I said fantastic Sushi and that's true but both the Chinese and Japanese Cusines offered are excellent. It's just that when my kids and their families come up from Atlanta, this is one of the places on their "must go" list. Last week, I had one of my favorites, which is the Seafood Double. Always good, a good bit of... More

My wife and I have been regular patrons of Osaka for more than 7 years. The Sushi is always fresh and the presentation flawless. The chinese items are also excellent but we prefer the sushi. Ask for what's fresh and not on the regular menu. Steve (the owner) and his wife are always there and aim to please.

The service was pathetic. The server ignored us and all the tables in her section. I was surprised a riot didn't ensue. I ordered the pineapple chicken, expecting grilled, stir-fry chicken as per the description and it can out fried and disgusting. I didn't eat it and left there pissed. Terrible experience all-around.

Osaka has the best sushi in Huntersville. We like the crunchy roll but everything we’ve tried is outstanding. Service is great, they get you in and out (which I love). We’ve also had their traditional Chinese dishes and they are excellent. Great restaurant, one of our favorites.
