Good Service, Average Food

I would like to give Osaka 3.5 stars but I don't have that choice so I'm rounding up since the service was good and they give you extras like free shrimp dumpling and deep fried shrimp patty plus free ice cream. The rest of the food, however, was average at best and really kind of disappointing... read more

First time here & I liked this place. Good food & service. My husband got the Tiger roll and he ♡ it! I got the Summer roll. I'm sure it not "very authentic" but we enjoyed it.

The food was absolutely delicious! I couldn't fault the service one bit. I mean they gave everyone a complimentary appetiser of little shrimp dumplings and some tempura and then after our delicious meal they offered complimentary ice-cream. Absolutely amazing food. Fresh sushi and everything was beautifully presented. We were travelling to the U.S. from Australia but we will definitely remember... More

I happen to see this restaurant while trying to kill time before a doctors appointment. They were advertising 20% off on sushi rolls and some appetizers. The venue is somewhat average, clean, but not highly decorated (who cares if the food and service is good). The server brought me a lunch menu, a special sushi and appetizer menu which applied...

Have been here several times. One of my favorite restaurants in Houston. Small and friendly. Excellent service. They always give you us a free appetizer and desert with our main dinner. The sushi is fresh and well prepared with a wide selection. The bento box was more then I could eat. We were their on Christmas day and enjoyed our... More

Went on a Sunday evening prior to an event at the House of Blues in Houston. Location was great, and easy to find. Sat at the sushi bar, by choice. The complimentary appetizers were very good! Had the osaka roll and the phoenix roll. Both were excellent in their own way. Phoenix was spicy and delicious. Osaka was amazing with... More

Osaka has been my favorite sushi bar in Houston for years. The sushi here is better than I have had anywhere, including Manhattan. The nigiri is so large and so fresh. The assortment of cut rolls is also very comprehensive. I enjoy sitting at the sushi bar when I visit, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is great no matter... More

Located in Westchase, not far from downtown this is a very nice japanese restaurant. They really do offer many dishes. We tasted edamame, Tokyo rolls, Red Dragon Rolls and green tea icecream and all of them were delicious. As welcome from the chef they served us 2 dumplings, we were 2 people and 2 veggies and shrimp tempura. Both fantastic!... More
