Have craving for Japanese food and visited this Japanese restaurant after seeing great reviews. Well, the food is average. More of fusion Japanese where a lot of creativity is seen in their sushi. However, the rice is not well marinated with vinegar and they are not using the Japanese rice grain. With the steep price range, I will expect more.

Dear Jocelyn, Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I can assure you that we are using the highest quality Japanese rice and it is marinated just enough. If you marinate it too much, you lose the taste of the fish and that is what other cheap sushi restaurants tend to do. Hopefully you will visit us... More

I usually avoid rating with 5 stars because you can always have slight draw backs even in good restaurants, but my last night experience with my wife in Osaka was really excellent. Service, food, diversity and ambiance met our expectations. Prices are also justified for such an experience

Osaka, with the new menu and the new look, is probably what it used to be for years: simply the best sushi in Beirut. Despite the innovative additions, we stuck to our old habits: 1- spicy tuna salad: the same recipe but with brown rice crispy instead of white 2- shrimp tempura: quiet crispy, virtually no trace of oil from...

- Atmosphere: good, with a nice corner view of the street. It has an urban feel. - Food: amazing! Where do I begin.. Taste was exquisite, cleanliness was good, freshness at best. We ordered the following and I highly recommend all of them; the crunchy tuna salad, spicy tuna roll, crazy roll, salmon Tartar, breaded shrimp, dynamite roll. Simply Incredible!!... More

The "new" Osaka is back in the number one spot! Best sushi in Beirut by far, the new menu is creative with top quality ingredients and preparation not to mention the excellent service (service with a real smile). Happy employees always lead to happy customers 👍

Osaka is one of the best places to have sushi in Beirut if not the best. A must try are: the cooked squid, the cooked white fish, the avocado berries and crab. Service is highly professional and efficient. Attention to details is high.

Osaka is not the place to go if you want to discover taste explosions in sushi. It is the place you should visit if you're looking for traditional, quality sushi with constant quality. Their sashimi is just perfect. Their makis are not creative, but you know you will get the best out of the traditional taste combinations.
