Nothing fancy but a great place to take the family. Will definitely try and hit the teppan next time with the family. Don't let that outside fool you. Also, sit in the Japanese area.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't be fooled. Ask to sit in the tatami room...it's a great room in the back with a Japanese style sitting. They have an extensive menu is sushi and other delicacies. I had the tonkatsu which comes with miso soup. The nabeyaki udon is tasty too. A must try!

Okay I'm pretty biased. We have a pretty amazing sushi joint over hear in Jersey called Sagami's. So far I have yet to have anything as good. However, Osaka comes pretty dark close to being as good. I enjoyed everything I had not to mention the saki recommendation was spot on. Thank you. The service was fantastic and I loved... More

I decided to try it motivated by the good reviews. It was totally truth, the food is delicious, the service excellent, thank you David! The ambience, authentic Japanese, and the prices, just right. The place is not luxurious at all, but it is comfortable and clean. I've ordered tofu, titanic boat, steak fried rice and house sake. I'm going back... More

Came to our attention via Triple D. Wonderful sushi in an unpretentious atmosphere. If I lived here, they would come to know me by name, I would be a regular, hands down. Highly recommend; a Las Vegas treasure.

Outside doesn't do the place justice. Another great little find. Nice staff, sushi was yummy. You can order half orders (4 pieces) on most rolls, so if you want to try a little of each. Not pricey. Will definitely go back.

I like to get food to go here. It is always fresh and very quickly prepared. I don't stay because it seems like a place for a date,...or a group,... or with other people. It is dark inside. It looks old and there is no decor. They also have a section with the little private booths where shoes may /... More

Wow, the wait staff had you in their sights and didnt miss anything from filling your glass to sensing when you wanted more. The cook was of course talented twirling his knives, eggs and food, but also cooking each dish as requested and even dividing orders between couples who wanted to share. The soup was an interesting noodle broth the... More

We are always looking for an authentic, local experience when we travel and Osaka Japanese Bistro on W. Sahara, just minutes off the strip was just that. We sat on traditional tatami's, and the service was gracious and personable. Our server Hiroku was amazing, the food incredibly fresh and the ambiance perfect. When the restaurant is full of local Japanese... More

It's a little ways away from the main areas of Vegas such as the Strip, but this little place is great. The staff are all very friendly and you can choose to belly up to the sushi bar or sit at a normal table. They offered a HUGE menu with lots of authentic Japanese options that can be hard to...
