Sushi is my favorite food, so anytime I hear of a new sushi place opening I always want to try it out. Recently my husband and I visited the new Osaka in Broken Arrow. We originally went to try the hibachi, and our first visit was New Years Eve. They had apparently WAY overbooked, so we did sushi instead. It was REALLY GOOD! We ordered the Sooner Roll, The Kamikazi, another roll with calamari in it, and then also requested a tuna and avocado roll, not on the menu. We also asked if they had Seaweed Salad (not on the menu) and got that too. The rolls are about 8 large pieces and we really only needed to order three.
Since then we have been back three other times, once for the hibachi and twice more for sushi. We’ve also tried their Graduation roll, their tuna nigiri, and a few other rolls. My favorite is the Sooner, my husband’s is the Graduation, but they’ve all been great that we’ve tried.
Unfortunately the service is hit or miss. The first night we went our server was wonderful, although I know a lot of people were very angry that night because they had to wait over an hour for reservations for the hibachi. The next time we went the service was not great, the third time it was horrible (brought out incorrect rolls (multiple times), had to be asked three times to bring out a drink for a member of our party, messed up ours and the other couple’s ticket), but this last time we went it was wonderful again.
They need to invest some time in training their staff, but the food is enough to keep us going back (we’re hoping since they’re new, the staff situation will work itself out). Average price is about $8 for a roll, and it has a great atmosphere as well.
