We stopped here after a day on the beach. The restaurant is uncluttered. I had an egg roll (which was good) and firecracker beef (a dish similar to orange beef), which also was very good. My dinner companions had sushi, which they said was good. We each had a house salad with ginger dressing—pretty typical of Japanese restaurants, but that... More

Great little restaurant. Large menu. Sort of a language barrier, but good food. Usually no wait. Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for

we went to the sushi bar and had not only fresh amazing fish, but the chefs are fun and so talented. They had good suggestions and then we asked them to make us whatever they wanted. It was a party in my mouth of smooth silky delicious combinations of favors. We did not order off the large regular menu selections... More

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...
