I have ate sushi in lots of places all over. I think Osaka is some of the best sushi I have ever had. Great food at a good price.

I've been to this place several times, both for Hibachi and regular dining. The place is just OK. The Hibachi is typically fun for kids and the portions are big, the food is often plain. Likewise, the sushi or other dishes are not bad, but not very interesting. The service is typically OK.

My daughter loves to eat here, we always go to the grill side of the restaurant. They prepare your food right in front of you. The waiters are usually very fun to watch! The portion sizes are huge, we usually share even the lunch size. We recommend trying it!

My husband and I ate here while visiting Springfield. We made reservations because it was a Friday night and we weren't sure how crowded everything was going to be around 7pm. When we first arrived the parking lot was extremely crowded but it looks like it was people waiting for the Hibachi side of the restaurant. I would definitely suggest... More

Its been a long time since I've seen such abysmal service as this. So Osaka is a chain with restaurants in many locations. I expected this one to be up to similar standards as the others I have eaten in. Well I was very much mistaken. We came here after a funeral to try to have a little family time... More

The meat is of high quality. The steak melts away in your mouth. The greens are delicious. They taste fresh. Also, they offer a high variety of fresh and refreshing sushi. The seasoning on the steak is a bit strong for my taste, though I know others who enjoy it. Having been here several times, I can say their service... More

Osaka is a great restaurant where you definitely get your money's worth. The Hibachi grill is not just tasty but entertaining. The chef we had the night we went was awesome. He not only cooked some great dishes but put on a great show while cooking. You will not go home hungry from this establishment. The sushi here is pretty... More

I went there for a friend's birthday party with a group of 20 or so; they accommoded quickly enough. They have this area where a group can sit around the chief as he prepares your meal for about $20/ person for a set short menu of fried rice and your choice of chicken, pork, beef, shrimp and vegetables. They do... More

Typical Japanese Hibachi grill & restaurant. I have been there many times. The Sushi is always excellent. The noodles & stir-fry veggies are great. This time we ordered Scallops & Shrimp on the hibachi grill & could only eat the shrimp as the scallops were not cleaned good. Super super gritty. Like eating sand! Not edible at all. The rest...
