Excellent service and dinner. My wife and I had dinner recently and were pleasantly surprised. The hibachi steak and shrimp were very good.

We love to go here for lunch during the week. They have half price rolls Mon-Sat during lunch. The Philadelphia roll is my favorite! I would definitely recommend this place to any sushi or hibachi lover!

The service was so slow and our food came out probably 40 mins after we ordered when the restaurant wasn't even busy. And of course our food was nuke warm and cold.

Osaka used to be one of our favorite places to get sushi but I've have to say that the place has gone downhill as of late. The rag used to clean the tables was sour. Needless to say, that smell doesn't go well with sushi. When I noticed the low sanitation grade, we almost left. I spotted the waiter coming... More

First let me state we usually eat to-go when we do. The restaurant is a not very well decorated strip mall section with four walls. Ambiance is non-existent. They do have a sushi bar if you're into that. The few times we've eaten in, the service was good and it's usually not very crowded. This is not the place for... More

My wife and I had the Habachi Chicken. Some of my wife's chicken was uncooked. We would not eat there again.

Visited the restaurant because do the TripAdvisor and I have to say that we were disappointed - one of the very few times. The restaurant itself is okay, but it is time for it to be professionally refurbished - from the dinning room to the restroom. The food was not good with the exception of the rolls. It was not...

If I could afford it, I'd eat at fancy Japanese grills every meal (you know the ones, where cook in front of you, make onion volcanoes, and throw shrimp tails in their hats). Alas, I don't have that kind of money. So, places like Osaka keep me going. The service is fast, though not super friendly. I don't really need... More
