Osaka's Chef Thomas Wakasugi is a Japanese classicist with a unique twist. Though he was born in Japan, his sushi experience has all been acquired in Houstonm, and is on display on Lower Westheimer in Montrose. And his soft-shell crawfish, sweet shrimp and raw beef-like toro creations all suggest that he has developed a knack for fitting Japanese sushi to the Texan palate.
Bright red and streaked with fat, the large slab of raw meat glistens invitingly. It looks like a quarter-inch-thick slice of raw filet mignon. But it's toro, the fatty underbelly meat of the bluefin tuna. I bite off as much as I can chew. It... More »
The best and freshest Sushi around! I like it because it has a cozy atmophere, dim lighting and it's a great place for a date or birthday dinner. The people that work there are super nice and they always give complimentary dishes to try. I would recommend the Caterpillar Roll and Kirin Ichiban. It's a must try in the Westheimer/Montrose district.

You'll find the standbys on the sushi list, plus a bunch of more adventurous rolls that expertly play with textures and flavors. Try one of the outstanding bento... More »

The menu is filled with unique house items like the Osaka roll or the crunch roll, a spicy one that's covered with... More »
It's the dish that sushi lovers and aficionados test any spot by: toro, or fatty tuna. Specifically, it's the cut of fatty meat along the fish's belly. A bad cut yields junk; a precise cut offers perfectly marbled flavor and a buttery texture. You'll never be disappointed by the toro at Osaka Japanese Restaurant, which serves the market's best tuna to a loyal clientele. The Montrose restaurant also boasts excellent offerings of sashimi (especially yellowtail tuna), consistently the best in... More »
