After reading so many great reviews, and living so close by, my husband and I finally decided to stop by and check it out. Unfortunately our high hopes were quickly diminished due to the horrible service. The menu was extremely overpriced for the quality of sushi that they served. I don't understand how a place that got so many wonderful... More

This is probably the best sushi place in the area. The avocado bomb is delicious and the variety of unique rolls had so many options to choose from! We ordered six specialty rolls and each one was great which neat twists and unexpected surprises. The tornado roll was one of the most interesting rolls (very untraditional) that we had ever... More

The sushi at Osaka was really excellent! I'm not a connoisseur as I live in a land-locked state, but having eaten sushi in South Korea, NY, LA, and may East Coast restaurants I can honestly say that this was some of the best sushi I have even enjoyed! The sushi chefs are first rate! They answered questions and offered suggestions... More

Very good oysters, creative sushi, and fresh nigiri. Great selection of import beer, water tastes clean and fresh.

If you like fried sushi that is full of cream cheese, you will like this. If you are looking for a an authentic Japanese place, this isn't your place. It is good, but not my first pick.

A few of our golfing group friends recommended Osaka Sushi after a nice sunny day of 18 holes, and am I glad they did. The four of us that chose to go were all experienced sushi fans. Kurt had even had lived in Okinawa. Probably because they were having a Tuesday night special, we ordered an extra wide variety of... More

I have always had great food & service here. I love the sushi rolls & nigiri. My bf gets the donburi & "shares" my sushi. His dad isn't the most adventurous eater but he loves the tonkats. His mom usually gets sushi or avocado bomb. I've also enjoyed their udon. I love their green tea ice cream w/chocolate is a... More

This quaint, beautifully decorated restaurant is a gem! (Complete with a sushi bar.) Don't be fooled by its location or its neighbor! It was easy to get comfortable here! Our server Erica was very nice, helpful, and patient while we decided what to eat because it was our first visit. The food was phenomenal! We had the Yakisoba with chicken,... More

Tasty miso soup (yep, there is a difference!), huge House salads, yummy Avocado Bomb (spicy!), and very good Caterpillar and California rolls. Roller Coaster roll was good, but not outstanding. Quite pricey, though, just to let you know. Would definitely come again.
