This was our third visit to Osaka; we really enjoy this restaurant and seem to visit it each time we are in Charleston. The food is quite good as are the portions. This is an Asian restaurant, so don’t expect the standard Chinese fare. There are Japanese Special Rolls, Sushi as well as specials from South East Asia, to name... More

We get take-out from Osaka probably once a week, but eat at the restaurant less often. We ate there this weekend and had a great meal. I had the basil duck. Good service. Reasonable prices. Nice atmosphere.

Conveniently located in a shopping center right off US 17 at the southwest entrance to Charleston, this restaurant is actually pretty darn good. Being a great fan of sushi/sashimi and Asian cuisine in general, we stopped there for lunch one day, sat at the bar, and enjoyed some real treats, delivered to us by an enthusiastic server and the guys...

We have been eating here for over five years, sometimes multiple times a week, and we have never had a bad experience. The sushi is the best in town. We've tried every single other place (our favorite food is sushi), literally. For sushi, the rice is one of the most important things. Their's is perfect. It doesn't take away from... More

Our waiter was a young, friendly guy; eager to please. We ordered a pair of spider rolls and an eel roll for appetizers, and both were delicious. For dinner, we ordered a bunch of plates to share- shrimp Pad Thai, seafood with veggies, chicken with broccoli, General Tso chicken, and Mongolian beef. Everything was delicious, but the Mongolian beef stole... More

Though I have another "favorite" sushi restaurant that restaurant isn't open on Monday. I have visited Osaka for a birthday celebration in their hibatchi section which was great. Their specials are very good. The menu is big, with a variety of items, soups, salads, apps, and of course sushi. In a nut shell, the Charleston roll was good; spider roll... More

Today we had lunch here for the 2nd time in 6 months and were (again) dissapointed.The "lunch special" sushi rolls were tasteless. We ordered 4 different kinds and they were all bland. The rice was old and gummy, the nori was limp and almost soggy, the California Roll was just avocado and fake crab - no cucumber or tobiko. Incidentally,... More

On my second visit I had the general Tso chicken which had... More

This restaurant set the standard by which other Sushi restaurants were judged. They have evolved over the years and added to their menu, but the basics remain and are still excellent. By its nature Sushi is expensive, and this restaurant is no exception, but it does offer very good value. There are many diners who are regulars, and have been... More

We came on Christmas Eve with my children and grand kids. We started with some dumplings and wonton soup which were satisfactory. Our main courses included Cashew chicken, Lomain chicken, Mongolian beef, and shrimp with brocoli. The shrimp dish was very bland. The Lomain chicken did not have any chicken so we sent it back. The server seemed to have... More
