No MSG in my Bulgogi!!!!!. I love this place!! Not so crazy about the bento box (I'm not a fan of tempura). The sushi is always fresh tasting and prepared creatively. The Korean food is awesome and according to the staff they don't use MSG,
sweet fresh sushi - fish melts in your mouth. The restaurant is basic but pleasently decorated with a rustic / japanese touch. Their sushi is excellent and well worthed the prices of more fashionable restaurants in town. Fish is ultra fresh and melts in your mouth. Service is consistently good and rates are reasonable. Drawback is its location (way upnorth) in an uninspiring stripmall. If you are after delicious food and not a hip scene this is definitely your place.
Good Sushi - Good Price. Excellent sushi @ great price....most of the rolls I've tried are great. I've never had a bad experience. Love the salad dressing too (if you don't love ginger - don't get it!) Overall a great place and to go orders are good also.
If you are looking for a posh or romantic place - search for something else, but if you want to get really tasty sushi - "Osaka" is the place. The selection is great, sushi are very good, and prices are very reasonable. Note - a sushi roll includes 8 pieces.
I will definitely go there again.
Best Sushi in Texas.
We have traveled throughout the country searching out the best sushi and have found it at Osaka Mansun in Austin, TX. The chefs here are not about flash, but are primarily focused on the food. They turn out consistently delicious and creative dishes. We have tried Sushi in numerous countries and throughout the United States and believe this to be our favorite Sushi restaurant.
We don't think that Mikado compares to Osaka. Mushashino is too crowded and inconsistent for our taste. We like Osaka better than Uchi.
We have avoided ranking Osaka before because we had wanted to keep it our secret.
Great sushi at a great price. Yeah, you can probably find sushi that's nominally better at Mikado, Uchi, or Mushashino.... but for the price this place rules. The fish pieces on the nigiri are nice and large, always fresh and delicious. Service is usually very good too. I'll be back again and again.
they are cheap but that's it.
poor service, waited long time, smelly dead fish... it was like...
Editorial Review. Japanese restaurant on the north side of town featuring sushi and other seafood delicacies.
One of Austin's best Sushi places!. Evidently sushi in Austin is a recent phenom judging by the quality and prices at some locations but not here, the new owners (whom call it the Osaka Mansun) whom I got to know personally after my 7th visit to this establishment treat every customer as a family member (I am now passed my 17th visit). Service at the table or sushi bar is excellent! My tea glass is never empty (even after this many visits). Any time you visit and sit at the sushi bar, they are more than glad to give a free sample of something you might like to try. They only do this after discussing with you your tastes and current experience. I took my Mom there for a late Mother's Day dinner (since she does not live here) whom has very little experience with Sushi at all. I explained this ahead of time and it was suggested to get the Bento Box which has Salmon and Tuna Sushi. My mother not only loved it (evidently unaware that Sushi is not supposed to smell) but even tried a piece of Mackerel. Suffice to say, my mother now has some sort of clue about what good Sushi is. She cannot wait to come back to Austin to eat. I can personally recommmend to start with the 12 piece Tazuna Sushi for US $11.95 and the Aji (this is sashimi and a little pricey due to availability but well worth it!). It was good before the new owners but the new owners have brought it up a notch. This restaurant caters to the Sushi novice as well as the Sushi expert. The service is excellent and if you do have a problem with service, let them know and the problem is resolved. The only con is that they are closed on Sunday. Let me make a point in saying I am not normally so giving in reviews and am very picky where my hard-earned money is going.
Excellent All-Around Sushi Experience.
Osaka is my standard by which I judge all other sushi spots. I have had a few that are better, but Osaka is so consistently fantastic that I keep going back for more. The staff there are incredibly friendly and the fish is always fresh.
Osaka has a full selection of sushi and some unique rolls. Try the Pink Lady (my favorite). It has shrimp tempura, cucumber and spicy crab. Ummm, crunchy goodness. They are alway great with the kids when we bring them in as well.
