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.

We went for my BFF's birthday. It was nice and clean. Great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. We used a Groupon and it was well worth the money. I would go back.

We had a reservation for 6:00pm and they didn’t seat us until almost 7:00pm. It was prom and we had to postpone the limo and pay extra fees. Very upsetting. Don’t count on reservations being honored at this restaurant.

It was the perfect atmosphere for catching up with a dear friend.
We both had a lemon drop martini and split an appetizer and sushi. Delicious!

Great chef but I think they didn't have enough staff as we had to wait over an hour for the chef to arrive at our table. Maybe next time they will be better organized.

If the staff didn't go above and beyond at the end I would have left 1 star. The place is dirty and in need of repairs.

Some of the issue was open tables fault so I can't blame them. Open table booked it as hibachi for lunch but the restaurant doesn't open till 4:30 for hibachi. The reason I gave 3 stars was because the restaurant still made it happen.

Sat down at our table and another group of girls arrived. The server was telling someone in the group she owed 4 from last time she was there. Someone came and took our drink order and then a few minutes later someone came and started talking to the group of girls saying that none of the servers or cooks want to come out and serve us because they are known to not tip. She kept on arguing with them saying they can’t come in here and expect service when they don’t tip. Why let them back in the restaurant if you know their face and know they don’t tip and walk out on bills. We ended up just leaving and going to eat somewhere else. I’m not going to sit and wait for someone who obviously doesn’t want to serve the other people at our table. Don’t you think our service was going to be crap?!?!?

Didn't even get to eat there. Made a reservation for 7, had a show to see at 9:30. Would not have been able to get to show in time by the time they would have been able to seat us. Had to go eat somewhere else. Other people with reservations for 7 were also waiting & not expected to be seated prior to 8:30. Obviously can't really speak for the food, but the ambiance was fairly loud & unpleasant, & not really what I'd expect from a Japanese steakhouse, & the host was fairly rude, unhelpful & all over the place. Won't be going back.

the food is overpriced when you try to get something else from the menu that is over the groupon value., and they dont serve enough food. We've been to other teppanyaki restaurants where they give you plenty of food and for the same price.

Food was great but the service was off. Waitress forgot one appetizer until we were done with meal. She also forgot our drinks and had to wait 7 minutes for it. Didn't really get checked on as much as we use to like we normally do. We will still come back since we know the manager and have always had great service other than this last visit.

So we had a reservation but waited over 30 minutes for our chef to be done at another table to be able to cook our food. No one informed us of this so we just sat there starving watching other people for 30 minutes and without drinks for 20 of those. Once things got going the chef was funny. Food was good, not the best hibachi ever. The one thing that drove us crazy is that in between two tables where the chef stands, the employees kept walking behind the chef cleaning other tables and what not but when they did this since it's a small space their clothing went into the food EVERY SINGLE TIME. Disgusting. Also we had a Groupon and it stated you could get a hibachi meal for up to $32 per person. Well anything over $32 was either a $10 up charge or $17 up charge even if it was only $38. Kind of annoying.

We waited over 40 min even though we had a reservation. Waitress was pleasant but acknowledged one birthday at table, but not my friends, even though I told her about it when we were seated and she acknowledged she understood. I had to check in with 3 different people playing hostess before they even seated us. Hibachi chef was lack luster and all food tasted the same, like oil, very bland. We got served oily vegetables and long pause until fried rice or meats. Louder odd music with strange lighting, obtuse dj booth, unorganized staff, debris filled stations and hibachi cart. Bathroom was not clean with floor drain popped out in middle of floor. Very embarrassed that I purchased Groupon and brought friends out for birthday. Will not be returning. We all ate, so food was palatable but bland. Just disappointed as from Groupon site and Summerlin location, I expected this to be a nicer experience. The icing on the cake was when we got to parking lot to leave, I had an email that I had been cited as a no show. Open table did correct this (thank you) But despite my checking in 3 times, this restaurant still reported me as a no show.

Service was lacking! We were seated, and we just sat there for a good while before anyone even came over. Food didn't have much flavor and was way overpriced!! The cook was lacking personality necessary for hibachi grilling! We were all less than impressed with our experience and will not be returning. The atmosphere is dated and cheaply done.

Made a reservation for 6pm on Saturday night but did not get to sit down until 7pm and eating until 7:30pm. The food may be good because they starve you to death before gettin you the food.

Restaurant's reservation does not guarantee dining at the time of reservation. The staff said the reservation was not valid due to a large party coming. What!!!

Avoid if possible. I will NEVER go back again.

The food and service were quite good. We were under the impression that one drink per person was included with our groupon, but were very surprised when we go the bill that the Asaai beer two members of the party ordered were not covered. We had told the person who seated us that we had the haibachi groupon for six, so would have expected them to tell us that this drink was not covered by the groupon.

I chose to sit at the Sushi Bar this night. The only issue we experienced was that it took quite a long time for a waiter to come by to order cocktails and then it too another long time for the drinks to arrive.

The Sushi was FABULOUS!!! All was SO FRESH there was NO scent of fish! The Sushi Chef was a blast to talk to as well as being attentive!!!

I will be sure to visit Osaka frequently!!

There were 12 people seated at our Teppanyaki table for 8. That mattered not at all. We had 4 in our birthday party. They had 8 in their birthday group. All in all, it was a laugh riot. The chef was the best one we’ve had in the times we have joined you. He did a great job and was really fun and funny.

The service was terrible, and the proportions distributed when others came to the table and ordered the same thing was at random and off. Enough to complain I order shrimp and chicken for my entree and I got 4 shrimp while my guest had 8 others more. Wasn't even filling. Don't know if it was a bad day but the best thing was definitely the Cheif! He was amazing!
