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.

Having lived most of my life in San Francisco, where we have an abundance of excellent sushi restaurants, not to mention other GREAT restaurants in Japan Town, I was disappointed with the quality of some of the food items. Additionally, anything deep fried, e.g. tempura, was poorly done (heavy and greasy...so much so that a couple of hours later you... More

This place is my favorite sushi place in the city and I have tried most of them. I have been coming here since the beginning and have witnessed three remodels. The most recent was just finished a short time ago and it really made the place upscale. I think they mainly did this because of the "new place" that just... More

I ordered the scallop starter, the chef's recommended beef in Osaka's special sauce and the recommended Sapporo beer to go with it. What can I say - perfect! In addition... More

The bento box is a great bargain at $11. Sushi, tempura, roast chicken,plus several small morsels, a soup and sald! The chef usually sends a small complimentary tasting for each customer and green tea ice cream is given as a treeat from owner

Had the 911 and Galveston rolls. It was hard to choose which one was my favorite. Both were excellant. They gave us 2 different complimentary appitizers, which we really enjoyed. We had our kids with us and they don't each much. Shrimp tempera is on the menu and they won't eat it either :-/ but I asked if they could... More

There's something wonderful about sushi for lunch on a hot Texas day! Osaka's is a great place for sushi. The dining area is attractive, and the service is great. Every time I've been here they brought a complimentary appetizer. It's always different but very good. This trip I ordered a 911 roll to share and the assorted sushi plate. Both... More
