Went here for our Anniversary dinner. No wait and were seated immediately. The food & service were great. Also, they treated us great too.

This was my first visit to Osaka . My party was promptly greeted, and shown to our table. Our waiter was very friendly. We ordered three hibachi lunches. The chef was entertaining, and our food was great. Will be back, and maybe try some of the sushi.

This was first time to Osaka and the experiance was completely horrible! The food was not good at all...I think I took two bits of my whole meal. The prices are stupidly high, and the service was the worst I've had! They don't substitute food, they don't tell you when they are charging you more for something you would normally... More

I have been to this place plenty of times so they make some money off of me. But the service I got yesterday was HORRIBLE. I asked for no butter on any of my food and the cooked snapped at me and made rude comments while he was cooking. Even my coworkers were surprised how he was being so rude.... More

Was disappointed by the small offering they have-the crawfish and snow crab rolls were good-not too much rice which I prefer. The tuna tataki was more of a seared sliced tuna, than the small chopped pieces I am used to, but it was good. We probably won't go back but don't discourage anyone else from going. Server was ok-not really... More

A friend and I went on a Saturday night and sat at one of the non-Hibachi tables. I don't know if they had a shortage of waitstaff but the service was TERRIBLE. In fact, the ladies who sat at a reserved table next to us never even placed an order. They just got up and left after being ignored for... More

I cannot speak about the hibachi since I sat at the sushi bar. The sushi was really very good and a very reasonable price. I also had the Shrimp Tempura served with tempura veggies. It was very good with a light tempura batter. After the sushi and tempura I was stuffed! I will return based on my first experience. The... More

I went with some coworkers to this restaurant since it was close to the hotel we were staying at. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and how much fun it was! My only complaint is that they were out of whiskey and also out of ginger ale. I ended up having to have a mojito, but... More

I know there are plenty of sushi restaurant in Mandeville/Covington, but we really like this place. It's good for both sushi or hibatchi. Kids love the hibatchi grill - yes, it's a little expensive, but you're paying for the entertainment too. Sushi has always been freshand well prepared - and service is excellent too!
