Osaka has been shutdown.
CLOSED -- Due to nonpayment of taxes! Osaka has been a long-time favorite, particularly for last-minute meals during busy school and work weeks. But the Chestnut Hill location is closed pending payment of back taxes. Not sure about the other locations. We are mourning the loss of our go-to restaurant. The service was always great, and the menu dependable. Sayonara, Osaka!
It was closed! And apparently will continue to be :-(
A bit pricey but I think because it's in chestnut hill. Overall it's a great time tho.
The food was very good, but the entrees were room temperature by the time they were served. The waiter didn’t come by to ask how things were so that we could let him know the food was served cold.
Excellent quality and wonderful serivce. Will definitely be returning!
Excellent service, excellent food!
Had another excellent and satisfying meal. The day's sushi special was exceedingly tasty.
Another excellent dinner.
Very noisy baby at a nearby table & a woman drenched in terrible perfume near us. Too bad - food, service good as always. Bring a sweater! Air conditioning was frosty at 6:30 pm.
We go to Osaka each year for a birthday celebration. The food is great, and the service is attentive.
Service was slow and waiter didn’t seem to know the menu or the food. Food was outstanding as usual. Was way too loud, which has not been a problem in prior visits
The sushi was exceptionally good - both artful presentation of rolls (Dynamite and Kamakazi were two we of several we enjoyed) and nice to have other options like the edamame as a simple shareable app. Service was splendid, with plenty of time to be unhurried while still being attentive. Thanks for a great evening!
Food is consistently good and service is excellent. Appetizers, rolls and main course are all very good but a bit costly.
The food was excellent and it’s also pretty close to my house, I always enjoy coming here.
Rebekah is the most amazing and professional server. We love the food but we love seeing Rebekah just as much!
The food and experience was amazing! I had never been there before and it exceeded all of my expectations!
Very good service and the food was delicious
We had a great experience sitting at the sushi bar talking to Joey the chef!
Imaginative Japanese cuisine in a cozy setting. The sushi rolls were fresh and delicious. Unusual and creative drink menu. Overall, an excellent dining experience.
EXCELLENT!! You will not find better sushi anywhere in Philly.
Consistently good sushi, specials, and service.
We love Osaka and return frequently. The food is always excellent. The restaurant has a nice neighborhood feel to it and it’s just a comfortable nice place to go.
Food and service were great! The only thing that took away from our experience is that it was FREEZING. We ere seated in front of an air conditioning fan that actually blew my hair around the whole time we were eating. My husband is never cold and even he was uncomfortable. If you go - ask to be seated away from the a/c unit on the upper level.
We had a wonderful fresh meal, of vegetarian sushi, and green tea, a green salad with ginger dressing, and the mushroom soup!
We had a great time. Excellent food, excellent service.
I love Osaka every single time I eat there. My girls love it, too. Absolutely delicious, fresh, flavorful, and beautifully presented rolls, sushi, and appetizers. Attentive, friendly servers. Dessert is fabulous too!
Very nice place for our birthday dinner. Excellent sushi, a beautiful setting, and top flight service.
LOVE THE SUSHI..ALWAYS FRESH AND ALWAYS DELICIOUS!! THEY MAKE A MEAN MARTINI TOO
Friendly and helpful service despite being so busy.
Everything we ordered was delicious and very satisfying. Well definitely be back!
Our sushi was excellent! Everything was fresh & beautifully prepared. Even our special request was handled with no issues & was exactly what we wanted.
Everything was lovely- only exception was when we were seated nobody came to the table to greet us or provide a glass of water for 10min. I had to approach the hostess to ask if someone would take our drink order and provide us with table water. Sushi was excellent
It was okay but nothing special. Portion small, price high. Fish fresh enough but just not the best in brightness or flavor, totally unremarkable meal. Very nice waitress, but not knowledgeable at all about fish or beer.
Amazing dinner, again. We like to eat family style so we order a lot of dishes and share them which can be difficult for some restaurants for some reason. Not here. They stagger the plates coming out so our table isn’t full of appetizers and make it a much more enjoyable experience. Love this place will go back and tell people to check it out all the time.
The food is always freshly prepared and presented beautifully; that's a standard procedure for Osaka. The dishes are inventively spiced and arranged. The service in particular was totally outstanding with unobtrusive and cordial attention from the waiter. Atmosphere is equally inviting. All in all, a very good experience.
Consistently excellent from start to finish, Osaka experience never disappoints. We shared mushroom lettuce cups and Kobe beef appetizer, followed by the lobster rolls, Kami kamikaze (shredded crab legs inside, Alaskan crab on top), and their specialty roll— all were outstanding. Dessert was also fantastic—lava chocolate cake with green tea ice cream, tempura fried banana 👍🏻👍🏻
The best Japanese restaurant in Philadelphia!
The sushi/sashima is not only wonderful, in taste, but in presentation as well.
Interesting appetizers and great hot main courses.
Parking is directly behind the restaurant.
The bartender was amazing!!! Very friendly and engaging! Food was out of this world!
Excellent. Dining area a bit dated
