There is not much to go into detail on since the restaurant met all "sushi" expectations. All of the basic rolls and pieces were on the menu along with an assortment of specialty rolls. There was also a wide range of Japanese noodle and grill dishes. Prices were good and ambience was fine (even quiet).

In Coolidge corner, just of the main street, we found a great sushi restaurant for lunch. There wasn't much atmosphere (it was a pretty late lunch), however, the sushi was very tasty and the specialties were innovative , with great taste and presnetation. It was a nice surprise and not an expensive one.

Osaka is a great sushi restaurant right in the heart of Coolidge Corner. It's a lively place on weekend nights and also has a nice lounge on the lower level.

This is my favorite place to hang out and eat. Baby Danny is my favorite hibachi chef. Ricky and Jimmy are the best bartenders! They create a chill atmosphere and interact with their guests. Paul, Mark and Joe make me feel welcome every time. Almost like family. Hibachi for 2, red snapper, tomo rolls and huckleberry lemonades keep me going... More

Food was great, although a few more bucks than i was hoping for. Decent service, and the establishment itself seems clean!

The food is really great, the best hibachi I have ever had. It is a little bit more expensive than I would like (I am a college student). But I went with friends for a birthday dinner and the "birthday boy" got a free entrée, so that was great! I've been twice in four weeks and will be going back... More

We celebrated our son's twenty-fifth birthday here (at his request -- he's becoming a regular!) and had a great time. Not the ambiance for chatting, but we went in knowing what to expect. The hibachi experience is fun and the chef put on a great show, including squirts of sake to all those interested! Our son recommended the sushi, which... More

The show during the food preparation was slightly below average of what I've seen at other Japanese steak houses. The food prep used too much of the sauces which overpowered the flavor of the steak, shrimp and lobster. Rather disappointing. Probably will not return.
