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 was the best Teppanyaki/Hibachi-style Japanese restaurant I've been to. There was a large selection of proteins, appetizers, and desserts. There was also an extensive wine and sake list, as well as cocktails. My server Ocean and my Chef Ken were both great! The flow of dinner service was perfect with a soup and salad included before your cooked meal. There were a few people in the restaurant that were annoyed by it taking too long to get their dinner, but based on my experience at this type of restaurant it is supposed to be more of an experience than a in-out rushed dinner service. I prefer the timing as it is and do not think it should change.

Good overall experience and chef was entertaining. The food was very tasty. The kids enjoyed the Japanese sodas. The menu that we ordered from was dirty and looks old so that could use some updating.

The California roll was chewy as was the teriyaki chicken. Not worth the price. The best part of our meal was the service.

Thankfully we have been here before and everything was excellent, this time it wasn’t as great. We would still go back here again, with another Groupon, but I think we would stick with the weekend, as that seems to provide better service and timeliness.

Very impressed with the assistant for the table-Andrew and the Chef. They worked well together and answered all questions. The Chef had a great personality and very outgoing. Made everyone smile at the table. I will be bringing back my family for the experience.

worst service we have ever had. waited 45 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, sat there for over an hour with only drinks waiting for a hibachi chef, even ordered a sushi roll and took almost an hour to get it. ate for half an hour before we were asked to leave because they needed our table. didn’t tip for the first time ever- felt uncomfortable but didn’t feel fair to tip when we felt forgotten about the entire evening. food is good though, just clearly don’t go the week of valentine’s day they can’t seem to handle the rush

They were an hr late seating us. There was no bartender at the bar while we waited. Eventually a waiter came by and made bad raspberry lemon drop martinis. Never checked how they were or asked if we wanted another drink. When we were finally seated the chef was miserable. He barely interacted with the table of guests and his show was was very lackluster. At one point he snapped at the waitress for service. When the waitress was taking orders from the table she ignored my husband and walked away from him as he was trying to order something. The only reason the star is not lower is that I had an issue pulling up a groupon voucher that we intended on using and the restaurant still honored the value of the voucher for us. We have been to this location many times and NEVER had an experience like this one. I hope that it was a one-off and not a new trend.

The food, service, and atmosphere was good. I ordered the surf and turf. The lobster and filet was in smaller portions that I expected for the price. It seemed that no matter what steak one ordered, the same cut was brought to the table. However, a lot a vegetables were added, so I left full. Having said that, the flavor was terrific and the chef did a great job.

I wanted to love this place as much as I loved the original that was featured on triple-D. Unfortunately, the bathrooms were right at the entrance, and the place smelled like a latrine. Food was okay, but if it weren't for the Groupon, I would have been a lot less happy. The people though, were outstanding. I'm sorry to post a negative review.

Service was disappointing this time. Having been there several times before, quite surprised. Our table mates were late for their reservation and, as a result, my friend and I were kept waiting for them to arrive and place their order (we were at a Hibachi table). Felt like we were kept hostage to eat waiting for them to arrive. Turns out it was their first time and they weren't sure about ordering so it took some time. I asked for utensils which I had to ask for a second time. My plate got dirty from the salad so I asked for a clean plate -- which I also had to ask for a second time. Chef did not put on a show like the chefs at other tables -- he just cooked (the show is part of the experience). Since we know the restaurant, we would go again, but if service the next time is as disappointing, that will be the last time we dine there.

Won’t be back. They only had two cooks with tables full of hibachi people waiting. The food was over cooked and the cook gave food to people who didn’t order it and shortened the people’s food that did.

I made a reservation for eight people at the cooking table for a birthday celebration. I made the reservation several days in advance. When we arrived we were told that it was going to be about 15minutes, we waited over an hour for our table and then after being seated we waited approx. 45 minutes before the cook started cooking at our table. We had another reservation to do something else after dinner and we had to call and postpone it two different times during our dinner. I don't think you should have to wait one hour and 45 minutes to eat if you have a reservation. It really did take away from our expereience

Terrible!! Our cook was a nice guy and tried to do a good job and put in a effort but our food was so bland and the dipping sauces were so watered down... waitresses were so slow, we didn’t get our drinks until the chef started our dinners, we finished our soup and salad before our drinks came.....very disappointing!! Geisha house is 1 million times better

when I went in there, at first I met people who are very friendly and smile. they are good to us and they did right thing when we order some food. the food is delicious! I think they need little bit more option like pick which drink I want but they dont have one what I want. that is ok. one of my friend asked for rolls you dont have rolls to provide. that is ok. most of all we had fun to watch chef cook all the food are great !! thank you for surprised to my friend who is birthday on new year eve. I appreciate it ! Thank you so much!

Horrible service. Went for the teppanyaki table with a reservation for 9 people. It was not extremely busy, only 2 other tables at the time. Our server rarely came over & we waited over an hour for the chef to come to our table....and then he got the order wrong.
