“Far better options exist in this area”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

Service was fine, but the food was average at best. Found the sushi rice consistency to be off, and the eel we were served was undoubtedly one of the worst I've ever had. There are too many other better places for this to be considered among Houston's top 5 Japanese restaurants.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2010

My wife and I ate at Osaka on our last trip to Houston. The Staff were very attentive, some of the best service we can remember. The food was very good and reasonably priced. We will be back next time we visit Houston..

“Absolutely Superlative Sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

We stumbled upon this place, located in a strip mall, but this is NOT strip mall food. The gorgeous interior impressed us right from the start, but then we got an excellent seaweed salad for an appetizer, along with some super-fresh tuna and salmon sushi and several rolls, including one called the 911 role that was some combination of perfection I can't even describe. Furthermore, the staff sent over not one but two complimentary samples of shrimp tempura (out of this world) and something called a summer roll that was sushi with mango and strawberry in it. To wrap the whole thing up, we got some complimentary ginger ice cream. Can't say enough about the overall excellence of this dining experience!
