Great service, good food

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... read more

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

I went there alone, but was not the only one there alone. The staff was nice. I had delicious appetizer (on the house), sushi and dessert (on the house as well). I felt very welcome and the food was very fresh.

Wanting a couple of good rolls, I searched reviews and found this place highly rated. It was fantastic! The restaurant is very nice, the service was very good and the food was excellent. We had a crunch roll and a tiger roll. Both were fantastic. They even give a complimentary appetizer and scoop of ice cream. We will definitely go... More

Good sushi and surimi. Good service. I mostly appreciated the salmon, very fresh. Also the urchins were interesting. But if you over order it is easy to break the 3 digits per person.
