I really love the ambiance of this place. The selection and quality of rolls and specialty rolls are excellent. Presentations is always spectacular. I have found the service a bit iffy, but the experience is always worth it bc the sushi is so good. I go here when missing the west coast.

I went here for lunch and I was so impressed with how beautiful the restaurant was- upbeat. And even more impressed with the food. I had a Dyno-Dynamite roll that was so delicious. Their spicy mayo is the best I ever had! And I also got the hibachi lunch (Salmon- so moist and tender) a large amount of fresh veggies... More

Amongst our beautiful walk through piles of trash to the front door, we almost turned around. You walk in to find 6 employees on their cell phones. They look at you like you have 3 heads when you say "We'd like a table for 4." We wait. Meanwhile a server walks up the host stand, hikes her leg and dirty... More

I went during lunch hour and they offer half off select sushi. My server was excellent and the meal came out fast. I also visited this location on week night and sat at the bar. The bartenders are great. I tried Grizz Nation and it was only $6 and was good

I took my daughter on an impromptu visit tonight. The clear soup was excellent. The Big Daddy roll and the Philadelphia roll were delicious. The Hurricane roll was too spicy and the shrimp fried rice had like 6 shrimp that were overcooked but the rice was delicious with the garlic butter. I had a Blue Margarita and it was really... More

Osaka has a very striking interior, the front half looking more like a space age nightclub than a bistro, with a more traditional dining room further back. I was concerned at first by some unwashed cutlery and my choice of fusion dish and nigiri not being available. But service was quick and friendly and my fall-back choices from the menu... More

I was passing through Memphis and really wanted sushi. This reataurant was recommended by a resident. The restaurant was very clean and employees courteous. We were seated quickly and our order was taken in a timely manner. The food was excellent and quite reasonable. I would definitely go back.

Large restaurant and beutiful bar areas. Lobby is usually very loud when customers are waiting for tables. We had reservations for a large party and had to wait until all but one in our party arrived, and then were asked to order for the one person that was parking the car. Cook put on a fine show at the table... More

I can not really rate this restaurant because it was not open! Just beware they are closed from 3:30 to 4:30 (atleast on weekdays). Bummer because I was looking forward to giving them a try.
