We are open for delivery and takeout Tuesday - Sunday 4pm -8pm!

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.

Service was poor even though it was not crowded. We got our food before getting our drinks. We didn’t see our original server again after taking our order until we were ready for our check. We had to ask several times for another drink including water.

I came here on Wednesday, March 24th for my birthday. We only saw our server twice - to take our drink order and to take our food order. We were never checked on. We waited maybe 45 minutes for our three sushi rolls. 6:30PM, we asked for refills and a fork to the busser who delivered our food and we didn't see the busser again. I got ONE Diet Coke and did not get a refill ONCE while eating. I had to suffer through my spicy tuna without any beverage. It was almost torture.

When Ocean came back to give us our check and apologized for not checking on us, I expressed we never got a refill. Ocean was polite and nice and gave me a "refill" but it was half way filled. Who refills a cup half way?

The sushi rolls barely had any fish in them and the rolls were thin. I won't be back. Never got to ask for any sauces. I was going to order their creme brulee but left after not getting any service.

This was the first time in a long time at Osaka, and it was fine for myself and my son. The food was good, not outstanding, but that is understandable, considering how much effort the hibachi chef has to do to take care of 8 or so people at the grill, all with different menu items. I did not remember how noisy the place is, but that I guess is normal, as the restaurant was quite busy. I was fun for a change to dine differently, but it may be a while before we do this again.

Our reservation was at 6:00 and we waited 1.5 hours for the teppanyaki chef who was the only one scheduled.
I should have requested for him to use soy sauce on my food. The garlic butter was different but not preferred.

Great food. The service was horrible. We never got offered waters and our waiter disappeared until we were in the middle of being served. Didn’t get salad or soup appetizers until we were almost done with our meals.

This is a favorite place for my wife and I. We've been coming here since we were dating. Now we're married with a kid. Unfortunately, our babysitter bailed on us last minute recently and we took our 2 year old with us on date night. Everyone was sweet to my kid from the moment we walked in to the moment we left. Even the chef was nice to my daughter. This will be a favorite in our household for years to come.

All of the staff were so nice and on top of everything. The Hibachi Chef was so kind and funny, it really took our experience to the next level. When me and my husband were leaving they even gave us an adorable gift bag for Valentine’s Day that had some sweets inside. We had such a great time! We will be back!

We’ve been to this Osaka’s multiple time, but this will be our last!!!
The service we received from Ocean was terrible, from forgetting to bring out our appetizer, to her non-apology or not bringing it out, to our drink glasses being empty it was terrible.
The food wasn’t that good & for what ever reason as we had the same cook we had 3 weeks ago.
Then to top it off, after dinner we were sitting there talking and talking to others at another station Mike, the manager asked us to leave so someone could sit because they were overbooked. So come in and spend good money on so-so food with bad service & leave as soon as you’re done.
NEVER AGAIN & I recommend others stay away.

We went for my daughters birthday. We were shocked that we practically had the restaurant to ourselves! Food was awesome as usual. They finally had the Chilean sea bass in the menu ( they were out the last 4 times I went).
They may say we do not accept any Groupons right now .... but they have the same specials you used to find in Groupon on their menu.
We will definitely be coming back again.

As always the food was good & the hibachi cook was great & entertaining, but one of my pet peeves is having my glass go empty and it happened several times.

Service was terrible. I’ve never been to a hibachi restaurant where I only saw the waitress one time. Because she was too busy taking care of her other tables! I felt racial profiled because her other tables where all people Caucasian and our table where black. We had empty cups. No refill was given until the end. Horrible service.

I usually have a good experience dining at Osaka but this was the worst experience. Our reservation was at 8. We were called around 5:30 and asked due to a hibachi table being out of order to move our reservation to 7:30 and we said that was okay. We arrived and were seated at 7:30. We sat for 15 minutes before a waitress asked for our drink order. At 7:50 our drinks arrived and the hibachi cook. Our dinner came with a soup and salad and these did not get served to us until after our hibachi meal. The hibachi cook maybe spent 5 minutes with us and seemed in a hurry. We were barely checked on so we just finished our meal and requested our check. Our check came with extra drinks charged so we then had to wait for the waitress to finally check on us to dispute the check. The whole experience felt rushed and we might as well have been at a fast food restaurant for how quickly we dined.

This restaurant offers a wide array of sushi as well as a hibachi grill. We especially enjoyed the fried rice - the sushi was pretty good as well. The service was prompt and professional. Of note, if you order the mussels, it will take a little time as they bake them.
