Saturday night dinner

Waiter took forever to get to us once everyone in our party arrived. He wasn't very attentive before or after we ordered. My husband said his food was good, but not very warm. The ladies room was a horror story. It looked like a bomb had went off, no locks on the stall doors, it smelled like... read more

This was a disappointment at best. When this place first opened it was great. However, time has not been kind to this restaurant. It was just dirty all around. My plate had dried up onions on the bottom, there was rice all over the counter, and noodles on the seats. The chicken was overcooked to a point it was inedible.... More

If you eat at the teppan come hungry. Lots of rice and noodles (yes--both), a moderate amount of vegetables, and a fair amount of your main dish (not to mention a salad and some onion and mushroom broth). The noodles, salad dressing, and one dipping sauce all are slightly sweet (unlike other teppan restaurants that I've been to). The cooking... More

I love their soup, chicken, noodles, and rice.. Of course with the yumyum sauce too! When dining in I always sit at a hibachi grill. It's fun to watch them cook right in front of you!

My husband, myself and our family made a reservation for a large group. Once we got there, we were told the whole party would have to be present, which would have been good to know in advance. After fifteen minutes my husband asked if we could sit since the rest of the party was five minutes away and we had... More

We dined at Okaka for our anniversary. We ordered sushi which was excellent. It took awhile to get to the table, but was very good. We both ordered a flight of saki. When done with that sake my husband wanted a glass one of the the kinds that was in the flight. The waitress left our table to find out... More

The sushi at Osaka is really great, but the service, as other reviewers noted, is lacking. We did have reservations and were seated quickly, but there were many delays in ordering and receiving our food.

I love this restaurant. It's my husband's first choice when going to Springfield. We always order the sushi rolls, and we have dined in both areas. I like the two menu options. If you sit in hibachi area, it's always a fun experience. The drinks are good as well.
