“Best Sushi in the County!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2013

A favorite, up til this time, I've been selfish and wanted to keep this find close to the vest. However, our family loves this restaurant so much they all want to tell the world about it!. Wait staff are remarkably helpful and always willing to make adjustments to accomodate gastronomical 'quirks' Ask Joon, for example, to make a Sunflower Roll (you WON'T find it on the menu) - this one is almost unbelievable! Go at this roll from five different angles, you'll have five different tastes attack your tastebuds!! I had TORO the last time I was there, smooth as silque. Another sashimi favorite here is their shiro maguro ... superwhite tuna ... I'd call it 'ambrosia' in English!! We took 14 of our family to this restaurant and not one complained, except now, they want to go there every time they come to visit! Kudos to Osaka! Oh, another favorite??? Sashimi Donburi ... yummy!!

“Good, always very fresh sushi and best uni in the county.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013 via mobile

I've been coming here off and on for 15 years. It was the first sushi bar in the county. If you don't like sushi, come for the perfectly cooked tempura and nice and light teriyaki.

A bit out of the way in Lacey but worth the detour.

“Great Japanese Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

Osaka makes fresh sushi and very good Japanese food. The restaurant is small and comfortable. In addition to booths and tables, there are a few seats around the sushi bar. The service is very attentive and pleasant. We had several types of sushi, teriyaki chicken, tempura shrimp, steamed rice, miso, and green salad. It was all very good. There are several sushi restaurants close by, but we always have a good meal at Osaka.
