This is second time for Osaka and it is consistently good. Ingredients fresh, service prompt and attentive and prices reasonable. The interior is gray and quiet. Add the green tea and it is time for a peaceful meal!

I've been to this Osaka at least a half dozen times and I've never had anything close to a bad experience. The fish is fresh, the menu innovative and the ambience is fine. (It could use a little sound deadening, though). Appetizers, 3 drinks, sushi for 3 and a cooked meal for the fourth and the tab $156. No one... More

More than enough good food, elegantly presented in a bento box makes an inexpensive lunch. Lunchtime is quiet here, but dinner can be crowded and noisy. A private tatami room downstairs is a good idea for small groups.

While an infrequent diner, mostly for lunch, the experience is always worthwhile. Comfortable with nice ambience, friendly service and quality value selections make this restaurant a favorite on the Hill! Highly recommended!

Chestnut Hill has two sushi restaurants - Hoka Hoka and Osaka. In general, I prefer Hoka Hoka, but occasionally meet friends at Osaka. I think the sushi is okay, average by comparison to a wide range of sushi restaurants. The service is also okay, not quite as personably and friendly as Hoka Hoka. Parking is convenient.

We have experienced sushi in Philadelphia before and have not been disappointed. The trend continues with Osaka. This restaurant has some very creative and tasty sushi preparations that we have not experienced. The service was personable and efficient without being overbearing.

Just across from the train station in the picture-perfect hamlet of Chestnut Hill, Osaka is a little Japanese jewel. Our party of 12 sat at a long table in the back of the restaurant, where service was efficient & cordial & a wide array of choices very good. The Bento box was copious & beautifully presented & along w/ a... More

Sushi Dinner in Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia. Fast friendly service. Really liked the Kanpachi Carpaccio (i think, it's a fancy word for sliced yellowtail fish). Pretty pricey though, $16 for 5 super thin slices. Sushi rolls were decent, but overpriced for other similar sushi restaurants in the region. For comparison, we usually spend around $60 on sushi when my... More

Osaka is located in the Chestnut Hill area of Philadelphia. This section of the city has a number of very good restaurants and if you like sushi, Osaka is the best in this area. The food has always been very good, they have a few beers on tap and have a bottled beer from Japan that's aged in saki casks... More
