Osaka offers great food and entertainment for kids and adults. The chef was joking, singing and dancing, while cooking our dinner in front of us, and the plentiful meal was delicious.

I got the lunch special with the soup, salad, and two sushi rolls. The service was perfect, and they got in me in and out of there in no time, which is really nice since I had to get back to work. The sushi is normally very good, but today it didn't even look like the same rolls that I... More

My kids love sushi. When asked what they want to eat when we go out, the answer is always sushi. My kids convinced me to take them to sushi for lunch over the Veteran's Day weekend. We chose Osaka for their sushi lunches. The cost is affordable for the two and three roll lunch, and you get salad and soup... More

We been to this restaurant many times. We typically go on a Saturday where they have the lunch specials that are very inexpensive and the amount of food is very filling. The sushi options or Mussaman curry are great as part of the lunch special.

I can't speak for their hibachi because we've never had it, but their sushi is delicious!! Their pink lady roll is ah-mazing! :)

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
