We eat here at least once a month and I swore after the last 3 bad experiences I was done, but my kids wanted to go. This was by far the BEST experience! You must first get past the rude, dull girls are the hostess stand. Apparently they aren't capable of smiling or just being friendly in the least bit.... More

Always eat here when I am in town. Really love the Salmon with the veggies. Healthy choice if you are looking for it. Kind of slow but that is every place in Midland.

Service was poor. Overall attitude of everyone from hostess to owner was terrible except for the chef. He did a decent job. The place is really pretty and I liked not having hoods over each table. It gave a very open feel. Listen to me. Go somewhere that they appreciate your business and not act like they are doing you... More

Service was okay but their hosts were ridiculous. The sushi was horrid. Looked like it was cut with a dull butter knife. Definitely want sushi quality fish and the portion was tiny. The Osaka roll was pretty bad. Eel was undercooked. Still tipped 50% since the service was good.

Coming from Houston, where we have a lot of good sushi restaurants, I was impressed by the quality and selection available at Osaka. We enjoyed all of the rolls that we ordered, even the California Roll which my co-worker ordered, which I expected to be bland. Service was a little disorganized, but they are trying. I'm sure it will get... More

took oldest kid to dinner he always chooses Osaka. The show is always entertaining. I really enjoy the sushi, one of the best in the basin. This visit the only glitch we had the server and the chef got a little mixed up on who had which dish but we got it straight with chef pretty quickly

The sushi was good. Just be careful but it can be hot. I did not expect jalapenos on the sushi. There was over an hour wait and once you got in we had 4 people ask us for drinks and then after we ordered the food, they seemed to forget about us....

More of a trying to be trendy spot. Food is a bit over priced. Slow service. The servers are not into providing great service. They just go with the flow. I had very little help choosing sushi items. Most places recommend items or display a daily special. I was given a sheet of paper with check boxes and a pencil... More

I went on a Sunday around 5:30PM and was seated immediately, but not at the hibachi table. I was seated along the outside of the "ship" where I was able to view the looping oceanographic film set to classical music. The waitstaff and hostess were civil. The waitress didn't know which items were vegetarian and did not seem too interested... More

The hostess is the first impression and we were not in for a good experience. The wait was half an hour so we decide to wait at the bar. I was served wine with something floating in the glass and the bar tender dumps out the wine and attempts to reserve the wine in the same glass. They do offer... More
