Osaka is a really nice Japanese restaurant in Northampton. I like how there's a sushi bar, private rooms with tables so you can sit Japanese style, hibatchi tables, and outside seating. It's a great variety. The food is really good here. I personally like the salmon teryaki with rice. It is SO good. That is probably my favorite dish. They give you a nice fresh piece of salmon with sweet and tasty terkaki sauce with white rice. Most of the entrees come with a small salad and miso soup. These appetizers are simple, yet so perfect before your meal. However, I had the teryaki chicken with rice, and I was not pleased. The chicken was really dry and hard to eat. Not pleasant. I have not ordered their Hibatchi, but I have had friends who ordered it so I sat at that table, the chefs are way cool and they do their thang - and it tastes pretty good too. Their desserts are really good too - mochi in a different flavors, such as red bean, vanilla, and green tea. They also have fried ice-cream, YUM! The wait staff is OK - they do their job, but don't expect a hi, how's everything. However, the hosts, managers, and owners are very friendly. I enjoy going to Osaka for dinner.
