Best Choice in Northern Utah – This restaurant offers some of the best westernized sushi in all of northern Utah. As a huge sushi fan I have ate at several restaurants in Utah and honestly this one has some of the best tasting! The only thing this pleasant place lacks is private dining rooms. Their place is nicely decorated and the hours of operation are choice!
Can we not get good service anywhere these days? – My husband and I went to Osaka for my birthday. This used to be one of our most favorite restaurants. We were excited to go back since it had been a while since we had eaten there. We sat down at the table and my husband said we would just be ordering rolls throughout the night meaning we would be there for a while. I don't know if this set the waitress off, but she had quite the attitude. We ordered miso soup and rice and the dynamite appetizer- which wasn't as good as I remembered it being. We had still not received our plates or ramekin dishes for soy sauce. My husband asked for the plates and the ramekin dish and the waitress, no lie said with a lot of attitude, "Yeah I know what you're talking about... I work here." We were stunned! We later asked if we had offended her somehow and she said no she was just joking. Ha! Not a very funny joke. From then on another waitress had to come take our order and help us the rest of the night. When the tall, blonde, and rude waitress came back she basically threw the roll down on the table and walked away. She also did the same thing with the check. All I can say is bad service makes the food taste not as good, and when you end up leaving with a bad taste in your mouth, chances are you're never going back. I think this restaurant needs to give their employees a little etiquette training.
I Did Not Know That Was On The Menu! – I have had bad sushi 3 other times in my life and trust me I know it when I see it. We have eaten at Osaka two other times and the food was always great. The first time the service was fast and friendly. The second time my fiancee who had ordered something cooked from the kitchen was nearly finished by the time my sushi was brought out 15 minutes later. I mentioned to the server I thought the restaurant needed a lesson in meal pacing and she apologized and was very nice but not even a free drink or anything was offered. I thought it was a little ridiculous. This last visit was on Friday September 26th. The food was great but I woke up the next morning and y head was spinning. The trouble is with how fast this kind of food is digested. By the time I was able to purge...less than 12 hours later all that came up was liquid. It made for a very concentrated case. It kept me down all Sunday and today I feel fine enough to hop on the lap top and try to save you fine people from the experience I endured. In the restaurants defense I did eat there with 2 other people and they were just fine. I got the lucky piece I guess. Beware!
Best Sushi around – One of the top Shushi restaurants in Utah and surrounding states; in this geographic location we don't care if the chef is Korean, Japanese, or American, as long as the food is better than anything else we have access to. I've spent twice as much for half the quality at most places in Utah, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming. If these guys made their food so it tasted authentic Japanese, they would be out of business in a week. I'm going back again tomorrow.
Loved it! – I'm so glad my husband and I ignored the bad reviews for this place. We have been here twice so far and have had an awesome experience both times. We have tried several of their rolls and all of them have been nothing less than delicious. I agree with the other reviewer about the nationality of the chefs... WHO CARES! If the food they make is good, why does it matter where they're from? This is a great little place with a great atmosphere and excellent food. We will definitely keep coming here!
Delicious – First of all this place is delicious, try the picoso. I have been to Japan numerous times and to quite nice restaurants too. (dont want to toot my own horn but I have been to restaurants and seen famous folk like Yoko Ono). This places food was really great. People have been complaining in their comments that koreans are the chefs, yes that is true but why does that matter. They are expert chefs and very friendly, why is it any different to have a korean chef as opposed to an american chef. And the New York guy is a jack@$$ he probably is a fry cook, he is just a stuck up tool. I would recommend this place to anybody and the price is amazing too. The service was excellent they noticed it was our first time in there and gave us a complementary appetizer free of charge. I thought that took a lot of character and I will always give them my business. All the bad comments are rediculous and written out of their @$$
Go osaka! – I love osaka. Foods are always fresh, and tasty. Huge selection of sushi rolls and sashimi. People are super nice too, which makes me go back every single week!
huge roll selection – rolls at osaka are the best!! wide selection, always tasty. I love anything with shirimp tempura, their tempura is super crispy and crunchy!!!
PLEEAASSSEEE!!! – This place is waaay over rated. There is nothing japanese here and service is slow. The only thing Japanese was me and my son. food was awful.
Awesome!! – Wow I don't understand why these bad comments, I went there last night with my girlfriend and we had an amazing time ! Sashimi and tempura appetizers were phenomenal while these sushi & rolls (try andy roll!) were succulent ! The service was great too, promptly seated, very attentive & friendly staff, Cassie and Sunny ! I will deffinitly return to Osaka !
