“Say hi to Joe while you're there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is our favorite Chinese/Japanese/Korean restaurant in the lakes region.

Joe is a fixture at the front door and on the phone; he has been there for as long as I can remember! It's always confusing on those rare occasions that he and his big welcoming smile are not there to greet you.

Their sushi is always fresh and beautfully presented. Their menu is large with lots of choices, including lunch special, chef's specialties, and a huge list of appetizers. We just went there the other day and I tried the Hawaiian Three Delight, which was scallops, shrimp, chicken, pea pods, veggies, pineapples, and I chose brown rice. This was marked as a "hot" item, and not being a big fan of "hot" I asked for it to be toned down. It was perfect. What a great meal! My husband got the Gai Poo Lo Mein, beef, pork, chicken and shrimp (I think) over noodles, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. The prices were perfect and the meals were just the right size. We each had a "tropical" cocktail (must've been the hysteria of feeling 60 degrees here in NH!) before dinner and we walked out at $47 including a generous tip. Not bad these days, eh?

This place is great dining in or for take out. They even deliver!

“Great Asian food and Gluten free choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Went with a large group one of them requiring gluten free. Staff were very helpful with this and all our needs and food was delicious. Recommended by staff at Margate Hotel.

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

While living in NH I've struggled to find good sushi at a fair price... Until now! Osaka is so good! They have all sorts of sushi, as well as a extensive menu of other Asian options. Not only is the food delicious and the service is great, but the drinks are boozy and wonderful haha, especially the scorpion bowl. If you love a big crazy roll of sushi get the Pheonix roll, if you'd like something on the less adventurous but still yummy side get the Romance Maki. Two thumbs up for this place!
