Wonderfu Meal

Driven by many times without ever thinking about stopping in. Major mistake on my part as this place is a neighborhood gem. Fresh, high quality, tasty and generous portions. Staff was not imposing but helpful. Good experience and will return.

Rolls were well presented and tasted very fresh. We loved the spicy tuna and the Alaskan. My wife had the red snapper plate. I had steak hibachi. Both were great. Décor isn't perfect but was good enough to overlook.

The sushi is the best I've ever had its soooo good. Their seaweed salad is delicious and this one item I forgot the name of it but it's crab inside this shell and it's served with fire under it or something I don't know but it was good. Just because the sushi is so good I haven't tried anything else.... More

We waited 15 minutes for a server and finally I had to go ask if we can get some help. Food was dry, carrots tasted canned and server was really bad. We live very close but I would never come back.

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
