The food was good but they would not take the buy one get one free coupon for some reason. That made lunch a bit more expensive. Be prepared to eat with chopsticks but it isn't that hard. Food was good, service could have been improved a bit. On street parking but I did not have trouble finding a spot for... More

This is a very good restaurant with good sushi and a very wide selection. My wife daughter and I went for dinner and really enjoyed the rolls that we each had. We also very much enjoyed the salad with the amazing ginger dressing. We saved the extra ginger dressing to put on some fried rice that we ordered with our... More

I have been here several times and have never been disappointed. The sushi is fresh. The basic rolls are fairly inexpensive. The service was fast and attentive. I noticed some comments that noted rude servers, I have never experienced that when coming here. This place often offers a Groupon so why not give them a try.

We have visited this location over 10 times and it is one of our favorites. Prices are comparable to other sushi places. Service is decent, sometimes they seem a little short staffed but our drinks never go empty. Pictured rolls are all marked on the menu pic. Their ginger dressing is my favorite of any sushi restaurant. Chicken fried rice... More

I went with a Groupon and spent twice that. I eat sushi regularly and this place was ok, If you were near and wanted sushi, then it would be ok. But I've had better at Kroger's. It would not be worth driving out of your way but ok to stop in. They recommended a special which was octopus dumplings. I... More

My husband and I and another couple decided to try Osaka this past Saturday evening as we had gotten the Groupon. We were seated promptly, the sushi was fresh and delicious as well as the calamari. The Service was good up until we went to pay the checks. We had two separate checks and two Groupons, but our server stated... More

Very fresh and flavorful. Many choices. We had a groupon type of discount and they were very accommodating. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. Good intimate place, not set up for large groups as walk ins, but may be able to accommodate if call ahead.

I'm at a loss to understand the good reviews, unless maybe because we were there at an odd time (4:30 PM) we ate yesterday's sushi. We ordered three different rolls and they all tasted the same. The soft shell crab had ONE LEG of crab in the entire roll. Same for the tempura shrimp. The beer selection is poor (not... More

I love this place - it's quirky and quaint and always just busy enough. I love the service because it feels like it is my neighborhood place- always a smile and hello! It is not supper fast or super polished but who needs more of that anyway. It is not a faux place! I'm not a huge fan of sushi... More
