Reasonable and consistent neighborhood eats with a very extensive asian menu including sushi. Not spectacularly geared to the health conscious and the excessive fried choices taste of a questionable oil, but can be counted on for regular eats as a neighborhood go-to with a full bar and a very friendly server staff.

We've been patronizing Osaka for many years--they are our standard asian restaurant since Joy Luck closed. No complaints really. Have had issues with credit card fraud and tax evasion in the past, but the food is good.

The food here is definitely above average. Lots of great options, including Japanese, Chinese, and other Asian specialties. The steak was tender, and more importantly the shrimp was fresh. Our soups were also delicious. We had a fantastic experience here, and the service was also very nice and attentive.

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
