“Overpriced blah food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

This past weekend was my first visit to Osaka. I was not thrilled with the food. They cook the food with oil on the grill and then put some lard looking stuff on it and then squeeze soy sauce all over it. This is meal that can be made at home for LESS. They give you (2) side dipping sauces that lack flavor/excitement. I walked out spending $20.00 for deep fried chicken on a stick (bland) "was suppose to be Japanese chicken kabob", stir fried rice (nothing exciting) and soda...plus the tip was included for a party of (5) ladies. Not planning on going back

“Restored Faith”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

I reviewed this restaurant previously and said it was our favorite sushi place nearby. Since they remodeled I had been back a couple of times and it just didn't seem as good. We usually sat at the sushi bar and had our favorite chef but haven't seen him since the remodel. Well, we tried it again tonight and my faith has been restored. The sushi was excellent again and what we expect to get when we come here. Great food and good service. Still wondering where our favorite sushi maker at the bar went tho.

“Good Sushi, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Went there with the family. One side is japanese steak house style & one side is restaurant/sushi bar. We were on the restaurant side. Wait staff was friendly & attentive. Our 4 year old had some fried chicken dish, which he really liked. Everyone else had sushi. The fish & other ingredients were fresh and delicious. The serving platters were pretty, but otherwise the presentation was nothing special.....at least on this night. Seaweed salad and miso were good. Decor is nice & open. We took a friend from Japan & she liked it and thought the sushi was good.

“Great teppanyaki dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

W have dined at a number of Japanese teppanyaki steakhouses over the years, and Osaka ranks at the top. There are a number of dining options: traditional seating (tables for 4), a sushi bar, and the teppanyaki grills (seating 8 around the grill) -- also a traditional bar to catch a drink before you're seated for your meal. We can't rate the first two options, as we have always dined teppanyaki (if you're not a group of 8 and you don't like the possibility of dining with strangers, this may not be for you). The meals start with a small salad (no choice of dressing but it's delicious) and a small cup of soup. Then the chef comes to the table and begins his presentation -- most always the same, but still fun, especially for first timers and kids. There are a variety of entree options and especially a lot of combinations (steak and shrimp, chicken and scallops, etc). The entrees are served with rice, veggies, and (at our most recent meal) grilled sprouts. Be prepared -- the portions are huge -- we always have leftovers. A variety of drinks are available, including saki, wine, beer (American and Japanese). The restaurant was recently remodeled and expanded, and it is very comfortable and attractive. Definitely not cheap, but the food is great and it's a fun dining experience.

“Great food and beautiful atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

I went here for dinner and I was very impressed by the beautiful atmosphere. They have really put a lot of thought into the Asian inspired theme. The food was delicious and they had good alcoholic drinks too. The chefs are entertaining to watch. I must say that our waitress was not very friendly or engaging, but she was efficient. Overall, I loved it!
