This is my favorite Hibachi/Sushi restaurant BY FAR! Freshest, most inventive sushi you could ask for. Great service. And the Hibachi is the best I've ever had. Don't even ask me what makes theirs different. It's just so good. Have celebrated many special days here.

Osaka is good and it is a great alternative to more "traditional" Asian fare, but if we are honest with each other, it isn't incredible food. However, the atmosphere and ambiance are good and the hibachi table can be entertaining if you're with a group of people. The chicken avocado dinner item is relatively good, but many of the preparations... More

One of my favorite Western Massachusetts restaurants. The sushi is very fresh and presented beautifully. There are very creative rolls, excellent hand rolls, shumai, gyoza, and seafood salad. We have lunch and/or dinner there at least weekly.

How this place has good reviews is a mystery. Tasteless food. Miso soup overly salty. We tried three different sushi rolls and there wasn't a winner in the bunch. For me to leave sushi uneaten is a pretty strong statement. If you want great sushi go to Ume in Longmeadow. It's worth the drive.

We are not sushi fans so we had the hibachi and it was average. Well cooked but I was a little annoyed at having to wait so long for the table to fill so we could eat. They quickly brought us cocktails and salad and then we waited and waited.... But when the food was done they got in a... More

Osaka is my go to place for sushi in Northampton. The fried sweet potato sushi is my favorite. The staff are very attentive.

Both of my girls went to Smith, and whenever we visit, this is the first restaurant that we go to, whether it is lunch or dinnertime! Fresh food, outstanding sushi, well prepared and reasonably price, not to mention great variety. Busy and fun place and the service is prompt and very attentive. Always enjoy the lovely presentation of the food... More

Great food, delicate traditional to modern sushi (inc vegetarian options). I prefer this restaurant to all of the other restaurants in town that serve sushi (except for Moshi Moshi--which I have yet to try). Also, their Gyu Don is terrific and the best value on the menu. It can get a little loud, especially on weekends and when the hibachi... More
