We have been going to Osaka for years and really enjoy the new remodeling. The sushi is the best in town, hands down. The sushi is always consistent, delicious, and melt in your mouth good! They also have some of the most amazing shrimp fried rice! That being said we do no typically eat anything else on the menu so... More

This is a restaurant that used to be solid, consistent, and certainly one of our favorites. It used to offer a basic, honest Chinese menu and also sushi which, over time, became a big seller for them. Unfortunately, over the past few years, they have veered from their successful course (opened another restaurant in N Charleston, which reportedly tanked; spent... More

We took a break from the beach for lunch here. I first ate here 13 years ago; Osaka has been around a long time, and not much has changed. I had Teriyaki salmon, which comes with salad, 3 pieces of California roll, rice and some veggies under a slab of salmon. The salmon was a touch dry but decent quality.... More

My husband and I have been to Osaka many times and still find it has the best sushi and sashimi anywhere in Charleston. Even with the recent remodel and changed menu, it is still excellent. Half of the restaurant has now been changed to a hibachi/cooked entrees menu. Next time, we may try it. We have always ordered sushi and... More

Atmosphere is nice. Decorated well. The waitres was attentive. The soup and rice were good. The Hibachi Angus steak was good, but was not trimed well. Lots of fat and connected pieces. The sushi was very good.

We stopped here after a day on the beach. The restaurant is uncluttered. I had an egg roll (which was good) and firecracker beef (a dish similar to orange beef), which also was very good. My dinner companions had sushi, which they said was good. We each had a house salad with ginger dressing—pretty typical of Japanese restaurants, but that... More

Great little restaurant. Large menu. Sort of a language barrier, but good food. Usually no wait. Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for

we went to the sushi bar and had not only fresh amazing fish, but the chefs are fun and so talented. They had good suggestions and then we asked them to make us whatever they wanted. It was a party in my mouth of smooth silky delicious combinations of favors. We did not order off the large regular menu selections... More

Reasonable and consistent neighborhood eats with a very extensive asian menu including sushi. Not spectacularly geared to the health conscious and the excessive fried choices taste of a questionable oil, but can be counted on for regular eats as a neighborhood go-to with a full bar and a very friendly server staff.
