When a man came immediately to fill our water glasses and told us our server would be right back to take drink orders, I enjoyed the audacity of hope. But the server did not come right back. Fortunately, the conversation with our buddies was good. But no matter how scintillating the chatter, waiting too long for that first beverage can... More

Consistently fun, Chestnut Hill sushi restaurant that also has a wide range of cooked Japanese favorites. Lots of fun special rolls. The live scallop sashimi special is excellent when available. It's not fancy but it's always full of people -- reservations recommended!

There are a number of good restaurants in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia; but when we are in the area at lunch time, my wife and I usually go to Osaka. In the half dozen or so times that we have been there in the last couple of years we have always gotten Bento boxes. The lacquered boxes arrive... More

Love this place and have never had a disappointing meal The sushi rolls and sashimi are just great but my special favorite is the tempura soft shell crab which is just awesome!

We had a wonderful dinner at Osaka - great sushi and other Japanese food. Lively atmosphere but quiet enough to enjoy your company. A bit expensive but the food was excellent.

Didn't expect much when meeting friends in the area but the quality of the sushi, service and atmosphere was a really nice surprise. The waiter was able to make good recommendations (recognized that the tuna is fresher than the sea bream). It didn't break the bank and felt like good value for the quality of what we received. Food comes... More

Great location in Chestnut Hill. Very busy. Parking in the back, but there might be a fee at certain times. We went on a weekday evening. We started with the Kobe Garlic beef. Excellent, $16. Also had Gyoza, $7 and miso soup, $3. All very good. For our dinner we had Yaki Soba with shrimp, $15. My husband thought it... More

Although I am not totally in favor of fusion Sushi, this time I strayed away from the classic Sushi preparation and had some fun. The preparation and presentation were perfect and the service was very pleasant. Do try some of their cocktails, theyare a step above the usual, too.

This is a place where you can get OK sushi but excellent service. We've been there a few time and it's always consistent.

An excellent meal started off with the kobe beef which was divine and the steamed dumplings which were very good. Main course was a selection of Sashimi and sushi selected by the head chef, i have to say that was amazing and filling. On the whole a quite pricey but we did have two bottles of red too. Best sushi... More
