GF friendly. Great Spicy Tuna

We were given edamame as our complimentary appetizer because of my fiancee's gluten allergy. The spicy tuna was one of the best rolls I've ever had. It's on the pricier side but definitely worth it because of the quality. Will definitely be back!

I have visited twice in two months and received excellent service and deliciously fresh food both times. My dining companions ordered rolls; I chose the Bento box both times--once with beef, the other time with chicken. Choose beef. The tempura was hot, crispy and they used fresh oil. Believe me, my stomach can tell the difference. My friend did not... More

We were greeted and seated as soon as we walked in. We were in need of a late night dinner and they stay open until 12:30. The waitress was prompt, courteous, and helpful in choosing our meal. The food was quickly served, fresh, and delicious. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant!!!

This is a lovely little Japanese restaurant. We arrived around 7PM, and did not have to wait for a table. After ordering, the server brought over a complimentary appetizer, which was very good. Most of our group had miso soup and sushi. The soup was typical average miso soup, but the sushi was quite good. We had requested they cut... More

I just had lunch at the new Osaka location on Woodway. The restaurant is very nice looking inside. The service was wonderful. They served a free appetizer that was very good. We had a tiger roll and a creamy wasabi roll. Both were excellent. The quality was better than I have had in any other sushi restaurant. Everything was absolutely... More

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. The California roll was... 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...
