Had lunch with a couple of my colleagues after a business meeting. It was very easy to locate the place and we didn't have a problem to get a table. The sushi was fresh and soup was tasteful.

Although I did not go to Osaka, I did go to Tokyo and Kyoto last June. I had a blast to say the least. When I came back home to Houston, I decided to give this restaurant a try. It is equally as good as the foods of Japan!! The food at this restaurant is delicious! The girls that work... More

Was not impressed. My sushi was warm and I could barely eat it. The miso soup, salad, and complimentary ice cream was great. But I was very disappointed in my sushi pieces.

Very good traditional sushi option in Houston (second only to MF Sushi in this category). I recommend the uni here, as it is fresh and comes in generous portions. The fish is always top quality [I have had their fatty tuna more than once], and service is very good.

Went for lunch and had the fish fry. Large portions and good grilled vegetables, but definitely didn't feel authentic. I asked the waitress if koreans ran the place and they told me chinese. Ok, I understand. Lunch specials are reasonably priced but, the rest of the menu seemed priced high. The place is large and spacious, so probably rent is... More

We walked to Osaka from Alliance Francaise and were early enough to avoid the rush. Extremely good sushi and grilled items. Several special touches and thoughtful servers made this evening a joy.

The sushi and sashimi were fresh and very good, and the drinks were also well done. In addition, our server, Christine was polite, helpful, and timely. I would definitely go here again.

This restaurant was a great experience. They not only provided great service, but also even provided a complimentary appetizer and a complimentary ice cream. I brought my family here and both my kids enjoyed the meal. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for reasonably priced, high quality sushi.

You get 2 "free" appetizers. I don't eat raw fish but their are plenty of options for me when I accompany friends who do.

This is the place I head too when I am wanting great value on Japanese lunch ($12 for a full meal) or a hotpot on a cold February evening. The service is kind and uncomplicated, food is rough, definitely specializing in traditional sushi, sashimi, miso soup and tempura. Great if you have never tried the 'good stuff' but a little...
