OSAKA (SUMMERLIN)   ******      LOCATION: LAS VEGAS Website: http://www.osakalasvegas.com/ Update:  Well, everybody deserves a second chance, right? We decided to try Osaka again and this time the experience was much better. The service still proved to be attentive and friendly, the interior cozy and beautifully decorated. But the Teppanyaki meal we ordered on this occasion (specifically the filet mignon) turned out to be an excellent choice! Everything that came with the main dish qualified as good (miso soup and salad), but the shrimp and the meat were just delicious. They were accompanied by two sauces so yummy that I just could not stop eating them! The Chef, although not Japanese, was very skilled in his job and entertained us with fancy tricks such as a flaming onion volcano. This time I really enjoyed dining there and would definitely go back. I don’t know how the rest of the food would fare (the Bento Box might still suck), but I can definitely recommend their Teppan Grill menu with a clear conscience! Original Review ****** We drove past “Osaka” several times until I finally got intrigued enough to want to try it out. The restaurant itself looks quite inviting from the outside as well as the inside and is decorated in a fresh, perky style with very well designed lighting, invigorating colors and intimate atmosphere. We went there for dinner in pouring rain, so that might explain why the place was almost empty. We found ourselves a very cozy table next to the window and instantly felt very happy and at home, with the rain rhythmically beating against the glass. The waitress who served us made a nice impression on us, she greeted us in a warm and cordial fashion; she was sweet and helpful, just a naturally friendly personality. But even though we were happy with the service, the food, unfortunately, did not make the same kind of positive impact on us. I had the Spicy Tuna Tartar and the Bento Box C (chicken and beef teriyaki, shrimp tempura). The appetizer was not bad, but I have certainly had better. The Bento Box turned out to be rather disappointing; there was really no inspired twist or refinement to the food at all. The meat was ok, the rice was as plain as can be, the salad completely unremarkable (just lettuce soaked in some kind of soy-based sauce) and the fruit merely a few slices of orange. The shrimp I could not even taste for all the batter it was covered in. So even though the food definitely qualifies as edible, it’s still overpriced for what you’re getting and in my opinion poor value for money. You can encounter comparable quality at Teriyaki Madness for 1/3 the price and located just next door. And that also might explain why the place was almost empty, a fact which, in hindsight, may not have altogether been the fault of the rain. I would probably not go back to Osaka again, there are just so many restaurants out there that are better that it would seem like both a waste of time and money to visit this particular eatery one more time.
