The Best Sushi in Town – I have been to many sushi bars in town and Osaka is by far the best. They have the freshest fish (try the sake sashimi) I have had in Nashville. The vany roll is also a favorite. The regular menu is wonderful as well. Sometimes the parking is hard to find.
Excellent for everyone – Ordinarily, I would criticize a place like Osaka for its Americanization. I usually find that Americanized Japanese belongs in mall food courts; that is, *until* I tried the food at Osaka. I soon realized that the American feel of the restaurant (non-Asian servers, menu written in English only, spoons with soup) existed, most likely, to entice those that would ordinarily shun Japanese. Then, after a careful screening of the menu or taste of the food, one soon notices that the food is wholly Asian. I usually have a Bento for lunch (about $7.00) and an order of nigiri. Osaka's menu contains the hard-to-find hirame-nigiri (halibut) and the miso in town. Nigiri runs about $4.00 for two. My friend always gets the hamachi-kama (yellowtail fin) which comes with a wonderful Japanese barbeque sauce, as opposed to ponzu. Note: Table service can be slow.
Wonderful! – This new restaurant has great sushi and wonderful service. The staff is very friendly and the food is authentic with a varied menu.
Nice little corner place – I have eaten at several sushi bars in Nashville. So far, I would rate this one NUMBER ONE. They have varity on the menu to order from. Also, from the bar they have the traditional rolls and some great specialty ones as well. VERY RESONALBLY PRICED!!
