Good experience group of 4 in our party. great variety of different sushi and other Asian cuisine. Server was friendly but did not come back your our table much through our meal . Bill was wrong overcharged and then corrected. Would recommend this place for God sushi . Decor could be updated to be more clean looking .

Althout I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant and the privacy that the seating allows I was disappointed with the food mostly because it was way too salty.

I dined here with a friend and it was his suggestion to try the Japanese food here. I ordered for a fish Donburi. My bowl has breaded fish, egg, onions and rice mixed with special sauce. I actually didn't finish my rice bec I was so full but I enjoyed my food. We chose the traditional seating place where you... More

Being from Vancouver I'm always cautious about having sushi when traveling. But last time I was in Lethbridge I tried the salmon roll at O-Sho and it was so good I came back for more. Today I tried the unagi nigiri and it's the best I've had. Yum. I'll be back.

I had teriyaki chicken, which was so good. I really liked the potatoe that came with it. Also had deep fried veges which were really good! Japanese style seating which was interesting, and the waitress was really nice! Very affordable, and great portions!

My wife and I come here every time we visit Lethbridge. The food is great, and offers the newcomer to Japanese cuisine a great introduction. We opted for the dinner combinations, which offered a nice variety of dishes at a good price. We especially enjoyed the katsu and the teriyaki beef. The miso soup was much appreciated on the cool,...

O-SHO "Japanese Restaurant" oh-really? About as Japanese as a McDonald's Big Mac! If you go to O-Sho and expect the taste and selection of authentic Japanese cusine, you have gone to the wrong place. I seriously doubt if there is even one remotely "Japanese" cook/employee working there. If you are looking for Korean/Chinese food, well I suppose O-Sho will make... More

I can't pin point this restaurant. I have gone in and have had the best service and food, but other times it was a complete miss, with service being very spotty and food being sub par.

The go to spot for Japanese Cuisine in Lethbridge. We choose the traditional rooms in the back. The staff are always friendly, helpful & courteous. We had the tempura prawns, California roll, teriyaki beef, chicken katsu, & chicken fried rice. It was all very fresh & delicious, we left stuffed!

Sat in the traditional Japanese rooms, which offer great atmosphere. I had the teriyaki beef and chicken. Chicken was great, beef was marginal and tasted like it was from a very poor cut. Huge portions for a reasonable price

Thank rosconaut
