Was recommended Osaka from friends and it did not disappoint. We ordered the Dynamite roll, gyoza and a few other rolls. They were delicious. We picked them up took them down to the beach and sat there to eat enjoying the view. Nice Presentation good...food and fast service. We were very happy.More

Osaka Asian Bistro on Folly Road in West Ashley is a great place to go for Japanese and Chinese food. I really like just about everything that they have on the menu and the atmosphere of the restaurant and everything about eating here. The staff...here is very friendly and helps make sure that you have a good time and a good meal. I have enjoyed eating here and it has always been well worth it.More

We hit up Osaka weekly for our sushi fix! The staff are very friendly and family-oriented. The food is always fresh and we always have a wonderful experience here. They have a great lunch special and dinner is also reasonable.

We are veteran Asian travelers and live in the neighborhood of this local favorite. We have been eating here for years. It took a little dive awhile back, but has come back strong. Both the Chinese and the sushi choices are solid. Their hot/sour soup...is the best in town. Friendly, pro wait staff (mostly from Fujian); calming, simple atmosphere. We eat here a few times a month and recommend!More

Typical hibachi fare, but overpriced for what you get. We ordered a steak and shrimp hibachi. The steak and shrimp were over cooked. The shrimp were rubbery and the steak was tough. The noodles were over cooked also and had little flavor. My wife had...the pad thai and the shrimp was also overcooked and the noodles were soggy. The sushi was the only thing that was ok. We ordered 3 rolls and 2 were pretty good and the other was just ok. overall, very disappointingMore

I've tried many Asian restaurants in Charleston and this one, by far, was the best. I've been coming here for years and only this year did I discover Osaka. This will be my go to place when I crave sushi while in town. The service...was amazing, we had an older gentleman who bought us everything we needed. Our food was out fast and we ordered a little bit of everything. The egg rolls were our favorite from the appetizers. The entrees were big in size and tasty.More

This is at least the second time I've reviewed this place, and it's as good as ever. The location is ideal - plenty of parking unlike near Earth Fare, a great wait staff, and terrific and unusual treats. I had once again the curry soup...with chicken. The bottom line is like the title - the best on Earth. I love it. I then had the snapper special, which was prepared in a way that I've never seen, and was terrific, too. Tasty, simple, elegant, just the proper amount, authentic, fresh, etc. Loved it. My mate did dumplings and some special roles, all of which were excellent. The next time we need to go to the nearby shoe store or Earth Fare, we'll be back. I highly recommend the place.More

Went on a whim because I didn't want to go far to get sushi and hoped it would be good. I sat at the bar and it was great enough to come back 2 more times that same week. I only tried the sushi but...that was all I had to try to know I wanted to make this a frequent stop.More

Because of its convenient location, we have patronized Osaka several times this year. The food has ALWAYS been good and fairly authentic. (After having been to Asia twice, we steer clear of Americanized Asian food.) Osaka’s service is fast, especially at lunch, and the staff...and kitchen are willing to accommodate special requests. Not to mention that prices are right!More

I titled this review always good because it fits Osaka. Sometimes it is great but usually it is consistently good. Friendly staff are a pleasure to see, great location, lots of parking and located in a nice shopping center.
