We go here a lot. The variety of food is great. You have a choice of American, Japanese and Korean all in one place.

This restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. They said it doesn't look so great from the outside but the food is wonderful. They were spot on. Osaka serves Korean, Japanese and some "American" food. The portion sizes were filling, no one was able to finish there meal. There were 4 of us having 4 different Korean dishes. All of the... More

I used to go here as a kid but won't be back as an adult. The portions are very small for the price. The chicken katsu w/ fried rice was about $13 and had less food than a $5 mini katsu from L&L. The hambuger steak had a weird taste and the tempura was oily. The server was nice but... More

From the outside, this place looks 'not so good'. From the inside, this place looks 'not so good'! The food, however, is very good! We went with a group of 15 and everyone liked their food. I had the kalbi beef and it was very good, I would definitely get it again.

Wouldn't have chosen this place by curb apeal but definitely turned out good. Combination Lunch with several yummy choices like beef teriyaki, ginger pork, tempura. All served with rice, miso soup, potato salad, and cabbage slaw for $15. Has a varied, good looking Korean menu but unfortunately it's not available until after 5. Tried the Kimchee though and it was... More

I ordered the butterfish - ozen style. The best butterfish I ever tasted - teriyaki taste. The portion was small and watch out for the bones! My husband had the mochi chicken. I tasted it and it's very good!
