Overrated_Underperforming – On htowntonola's recommendation we tried the 911 roll, Phoenix roll, and creamy wasabi roll. THEY ARE NOT AMAZING. Quite the opposite. The rolls are overly complicated with flavors that result in a tasteless blob on the palette. The beef suki yaki is mediocre and the fresh salmon is cut to big to enjoy, and I have a large mouth. The best thing we had were the free goyoza they provided and that's not worth a return visit. All in all it was an over priced, under performing experience. We will not be going back.
sushi is yummy, Osaka's Sushi is Delicious – I love Osaka. It is my favorite restaurant, period. I enjoys sitting at a table or at the sushi bar. I enjoy watching the chefs preparing the sushi. If there is something being made that looks tasty, I ask them and they let me know what it is. It is very helpful to someone like me who has only been eating sushi for a few years. They ALWAYS come by with something "on the house". I love it because I get to try something new with out a commitment to it. I LOVE the wasabi dumplings, especially when dining with friends. It is fun to watch their expression as all their nose hairs burn out of their noses. The service is pleasant and attentive with out being intrusive.
Good sushi serving size – This place is always busy. Appetizers are good. The Hawaiian poke is a bit spicy but the ramen noodles are good. Sukiyaki is good too! They always give you food on the house. Prices are reasonable. The sushi serving size is "everything is bigger in texas". Eat there quite often.
Best Sushi Rolls in Houston – You have to try out the variety of rolls! 911 roll, phoeniz roll, and creamy wasabi roll are amazing!
its like a trip to Japan – I have been enjoying Sherry and Thomas hospitality and good food for over 8 years and it never disappoints me or gives me a reason to apologize to my friends if I take them there. I have moved to Brenham but still make it in at least three times a month to satisfy my cravings. Thomas keeps amazying me with new special rolls every time I go in. This place is as close to CHEERS as any resturant I have been in. Do yourself a favor and try it.
Osaka is incredible – Whoo! Osaka has to be, hands down, the best sushi in town. The miso soup is the best compared to some of the blander ones served at other sushi joints and the rolls...oh man...the rolls are so fresh and delightful. I think the service is actually wonderful here, you are always greeted with a smile and your needs are ALWAYS met. Try it and you`ll be glad you did.
THE WORST!!! – Omg this hole in the wall place is terrible! Service does not exist here, so they try to bribe you with free appetizers that are not appealing. My server was no where to be found, even though the restaurant was super tiny and there were only 2 other occupied tables there. The 911 roll had way too much tempura batter bits and the color of the spicy tuna was hot pink. Gross! The people who gave this place a good review are losers and obviously never had real sushi or have been to a nice place. We will never come back and I have no idea how this place survives!
Good Sushi – I recommend this place, is small, good prices and free appetizer and desert. The service was very good and the waiting time was not bad
Our GO-TO Sushi restaurant – Friendly, fast and reliable service. Good quality food and plenty of choices for anyone you bring along who is not a big sushi fan. We had ordered so much last time we were there that the kitchen sent us these wasabi dumplings. Oh my god. It was hilarious to watch each person put them in their mouths and 10 seconds later tears were pouring out of their eyes. I don't know if the kitchen was being kind or if this is a joke they like to play but those were really good. Just make sure you have a full beer on hand as it's the only thing that will quench the fire the will erupt in your mouth. I've lost track of which are our favorites but some of the chef's recommendations have been really good.
Consistently Excellent – Most reliable sushi joint for quality, service, and value (even if a bit inauthentic). Friendly greetings, prompt service, complimentary appetizer and dessert at lunch (don't miss the green tea ice cream).
Sushi - don't miss the scallops or snapper. Rolls - don't miss the Osaka roll: crispy soft-shell crab with strips of mango, wrapped with rice, eel, and avocado, topped in sticky brown sauce. Sweet and savory and a delight.
