Osaka is a cosy air-conditioned restaurant serving delicious sushi, ramen and fried Japanese dishes in quirky surrounds, at a price kind on the wallet.
The menu is all over the place and reads a bit like an encyclopaedia of Japanese cuisine, with some dishes done better than others. We find the walls frantically plastered with homemade signs promoting certain dishes rather endearing. Sashimi platters start at 85,000 kip. The non-seafood dishes are excellent value, with sets that include miso soup and salad starting at 35,000 kip. A nice, light cold soba noodle salad does the trick for lunch on a sweltering day. We also appreciate the home-cooked quality of the food compared to some of the other Japanese restaurants in town.
