“Good Food ,Very Expensive , Small Portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2012

Its a great Japanese restaurant , but completely overpriced and the food quantity is too little .
We booked a private tapanyaki bar for 8 people and ordered loads of items , but still went home hungry . The bill was exorbitant . Great for an experience but valur for money - Dont think so!

Not great, although recommended, the food was a bummer. Slow service average quality and steep prices. The ambiance was agreeable. Not to recommend

“This is as fresh as it gets...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

This is always the first restaurant I visit with friends and colleagues when I arrive in Dar es Salaam. It's hard to find, unless you know where it is (not well-marked), but, you'll know it when you're there. it's almost always crowded...with good reason!

You'll be greeted with a smile by the proprietors and served up with ice cold beers when seated at your table (outdoors with all the fans - it gets very hot in Dar!). The menu is extensive and the sushi and sashimi is as fresh as you will ever find it. I rate this as one of the top sushi restaurants I have been to - and I have been to quite a few, all over the world. They serve a wide range of sushi, with some excellent tropical twists, from chillies to mango, all fresh and they melt in your mouth!

It is not an inexpensive place, so come prepared (cash only), but, you will get every Shilling's worth at the Osaka. Highly recommended again, and again, and again!!!

“not just great food but excellent entertainment value at the tepenyaki table!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012

Not only is the food good, the tepenyaki chefs are highly skilled and entertaining. You can sit inside or out. Most people prefer outside. Its a good place to go as a group. The average price is slightly high but the food quality makes up to the price.
