“Korean Sushi at it's finest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Like most of the Sushi places in town with an exception to 1 the owners are not actually from Japan lead alone Japanese. However Osaka does pretty good Sushi. There tuna tataki has got to be my favorite on the menu. Grace the co owner is well known and loved in town for her friendly smile and great individual service. Fish is always very fresh and food is not slow.

“All good!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

For Courtenay, this is the best place for sushi. Best tasting, best value and best service. It is in a strip mall but who cares once you are inside. Consistently good.

“Osaka and Domu Sushi in Courtenay, BC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013

The Osaka Sushi restaurant has become our "treat ourselves night out place" and we are delighted to see that it has not only expanded but added a second outlet up near Crown Isle. We were amazed by the food, but what has kept us going back again and again is the friendly service, to the point that we feel like we have become friends with the staff.
The variety of dishes on hand are enough to keep your taste-buds on a safari for many visits to come. The artistry and quality are excellent, and the lunch boxes are exceptional. A great meal for two, with a starter, main dishes and tea runs to a full belly and no more than $30. My spouse is vegetarian and I am up for anything, and we both find a variety of tasty choices.
It is close to Lewis Park, so after the meal a nice stroll beside the river can round off a perfect evening.

We ate here twice during our vacation and the sushi is great. Many locals eat at Osaka Sushi for a good reason. I can highly recommend this place
