Far Better Sushi, Sashimi Than You Would Expect, One of Bristol's Hidden Jewels

My wife and I are not too keen on Japanese but this is definitely an exception, we love the California rolls and the sashimi, this place always has the freshest sushi and you cannot go wrong here. Really an excellent place, one of Bristol's hidden jewels lurking in a strip mall. For all the folks... read more

My daughter took me on my first trip to try sushi and she chose Osaka. The food was awesome. I had never had sushi and the quality of the ingredients in this sushi made my experience a very positive one. The waitress was very helpful with her knowledge of all the terms on the menu. My daughter and I split... More

Braved Osaka with just me and my two year old. Server looked put out to have us even though I planned on ordering 2 full meals my server kept going to the larger tables of 4 or more and ignoring me. Finally my two year old had enough and we left when the tables who came in behind us had... More

I am allergic to shellfish, and don't usually like sushi, BUT, they also have an hibachi grill. It's private tables, not dine at the grill.... My husband says they have better sashimi than Atlanta, ny, Chicago, I could keep going, but their filet for the rest of us, doesn't even need a knife, it is mouth in your melt like... More

My family and I made a special trip to Osaka because our daughter wanted sushi. We were looking at our menu and asked to be given a couple minutes to decide. We were told NO, you either order or you leave and come back. We close in 45 minutes. We hurriedly made a decision. We're were rushed to finish. The... More

My family and I have been dining at Osaka for several years. The sushi is always good but the hibachi is hit or miss. Recently there has been an entire staff change and the language barrier is tough. First these new girls waiting tables don't place the order correctly, then if you ask to have it corrected, they feign ignorance.... More

We haven't eaten sushi since we moved from Florida over a year ago. I hadn't noticed too many Japanese restaurants in the area and was doubtful being in the Appalachians. I researched and read some prior reviews and we decided to head to Osaka on date night. The food turned out to be fantastic! The quality of the fish was... More

Our birthday boy wanted sushi, so we drove down from Abingdon to try Osaka. It was solid and the non-sushi eaters among us were satisfied with the tempura, but decided that the next time they would try the hibachi. The staff were all very friendly. They even brought the birthday boy a tempura ice cream with a candle and sang... More

Perfect spot for lunch when your craving sushi. They have a very good deal on 2 or 3 rolls of your choosing. 2 people can split the 3 rolls and eat for around 12 dollars. The sushi is always solid and consistent.
