A word from Osaka Japanese Cuisine
In 1969 Sam and Aiko Nakanishi opened the first Japanese restaurant in Las Vegas and named it after their hometown, Osaka. Located just off the strip, it became a local favorite. Thirty years later their daughter Joy opened the Summerlin location spreading Las Vegas's favorite flavors of Japan to the newest part of town. Drawing on the well-established tradition of quality the restaurant was an immediate success.​ Please enjoy the multicultural experience she and her staff are proud to share.

    This is a very nice restaurant. Not sure why it wasn't more packed. The entrance was dark and uninviting. We arrived at 7:00 and no lights were on yet. So much so we weren't sure it was open. We mentioned this to our server. Food was excellent, as was the service. We loved the food and we eat sushi a lot. Price was in line with what we pay for Japanese food. We always get Sushi so can't comment on any other offerings. The fish was very fresh and well prepared. Establishment was clean. They even have the cooking tables where a chef prepares your order in front of you. While we didn't sit there we did notice that the chef did put on quite a nice presentation. I would definitely go back.

    The food is outstanding, the service impeccable, and the ambiance relaxed. NOTE: Cocktails are not so good because they are not adequately chilled; however, mix is fine. It's a lot of fun to dine hibachi style. The cooks all make the same jokes, but because they are predictable it is acceptable (i.e., see the egg roll) If you're going to dine hibachi, go later than earlier, and take some friends with you.

    We were there celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. Service was great and the food was awesome. As always we order too much and ended up taking some home. The food is fresh and very tasty. A great find for a foody.

    I HAVE BEEN TO OKAKA MANY TIMES AND I MUST SAY THIS WAS THE BEST! IT WAS MY DAUGHTERS 21ST BIRTHDAY AND OUR WAITRESS JESS WAS OUTSTANDING. SHE OFFERED TO TAKE MY DAUGHTERS SURPRISE BIRTHDAY CAKE AND REFRIGERATED IT UNTIL AFTER DINNER. WE HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR GROUPON AND JESS WAS VERY HELPFUL. JESS WAS VERY ATTENTIVE TO OUR NEES AND MADE MY DAUGHTER FEEL VERY SPECIAL!!

    We went here for a romantic dinner for my husbands birthday. We sat at the cooking table and had the best cook ever he was great! Unfortunately the lobster we ordered was way below par for the price, everything else was great. The owner/manager was very helpful with our groupon coupon we had. We will definitely go back.

    I made this reservation under the incorrect assumption that Osaka on Sahara and this restaurant were the same company. We arrived on time. The restaurant was not particularly busy, but we were told to wait. It was very hot outside and we were all thirsty. We went to the bar, but nobody seemed to care we were there. A cold beer would have been nice at that point. After about 10 minutes, we were led to the Tepanyaki area. We were not offered a drink or anything else. The person who led us there left before we could say anything. All we had was a clipboard at each place with a lot of papers. After a few more minutes, I said told my wife I had a bad feeling about the place. She agreed. We-5 of us- left and went to Osaka on Sahara.

    I understand it was mothers day, which was why I made a reservation a day in advance. We were wanting an early dinner because we had plans with friends later that evening. Upon getting there it was 10 minutes before we were greeted by any staff. Upon that we were told that we would have to wait a few minutes as they were clearing tables. A few minutes ended up as 20. Once seated we had to wait for them to fill the rest of the table before ordering, another half hour. So 6pm reservation didn't order until 6:50 Another 30 until the chef was at the table. Our early dinner and plans were greatly derailed as for a 6pm dinner we didn't end up getting out of the restaurant until well after 8 causing us to cancel other plans for the evening.

    If you want a million sushi options, a fun atmosphere, all at amazing prices, and great service, then this is your spot. There are so many fancy-pants sushi places on the strip that'll rob you blind. I won't even consider them after visiting this place on my last business trip to Vegas. Definitely recommending and definitely returning!

    Our first visit and it absolutely won't be our last. Start to finish, really an amazing meal. Gyoza was great--not starchy, which is usually the problem but these were prepared perfectly. Osaka Ribs were great, shrimp tempura was exceptionally good--light and tender, California/Tempura/SOS rolls were all delicious. We did over-order, not knowing portion sizes, so wouldn't order all that food for just two people next time. Not sure what we'd skip, though, it was all great. Service--Jeremy--was really solid. Friendly, warm, and knowledgeable about the menu, he helped make the evening a fun first visit to Osaka for us. Atmosphere's a little lacking, I suppose--nothing fancy, but food/service more than make up for that. Loved it!

    I was simply not that impressed with the restaurant and our first visit. First of all, we were seated to a grill that had nobody seated. that would have been ok if we were greeted by someone to get us some cocktails but it was 10 min AFTER we were seated until anyone came over- really? Then over the next 30 min they filled up the area enough to start the show. $30 for a Fillet that really was just ok- not very exciting. The order in which the food came out was completely stupid. Fried rice- then the meat... then 5 min after the meat was served (and people done!) Oh, here are the vegies... Bottom line- even after 2/1 groupon, spent $100. Not worth it at all- sorry- just won't be back.

    I wanted to eat somewhere new and fun. I ordered the haibachi chicken...yum! Awesome to watch the art of them cooking right at your table. It was amazing. My husband ordered shashimi. He has wanted that since we began dating and never had it. He was in Heaven. Our service from the staff was outstanding. We really don't have one complaint about it. It was a beautiful evening.

    This teppanyaki restaurant was a nice little surprise for us to find. One draw back is the pricing of their menu items. The cook was very good and entertaining.

    I booked through Open Table but they did not have our reservation so there was a delay in seating. Once before I had a reservation at another restaurant through Open Table, I went and then got a message from Open Table that I had not shown up for my reservation. Clearly there are some communication issues with Open Table.

    These guys consistently deliver quality sushi rolls and sashimi at their sushi bar even though the restaurant decor is showing some age. Quality of hibachi table ingredients seem about average, but good for the reasonable prices, and always fun for small groups.

    I had high hopes for Osaka, but I was disappointed. It wasn't a terrible meal, the service was ok but not attentive, but the prices are way too high for what you actually get. I would go back to Osaka only if they shave 1/4 or 1/3 off the price of everything because this isn't high end Summerlin cuisine. It's an "ok" restaurant that can't seem to come to grips with just being "ok".

    We have two different groups that came in at the same time and using two different gift cards but the acting manager on duty was not willing to work with us until we decided to leave and already walking out the doors. She will not let us use both gift cards and if we wanted to use the gift card the entire group regardless they are using the gift card or no is forced to order from the regular menu.

    We had a 5:30pm reservation, didn't get seated until 6pm and the restaurant wasn't busy. We ordered our food and drinks. Our food came, a little later we decided to order more food and drinks. 20 mins later we asked the waitress about our drinks and she told us that they were out of that drink and never came back to ask us if we wanted something else and got our food order wrong. We will never come back there and we will not recommend this to any of our friends or anyone in that matter. NOT even if they gave us free food!
