Osaka – Newcastle upon Tyne
69 Grey Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6EF
0191 261 5300
Osaka is situated on Grey Street, Newcastle, one of the most beautiful streets in Britain. This restaurant has been on my to-do-list for quite a while but last night I tried it out for the first time.
Osaka is a contemporary Japanese, Sushi and Noodle Restaurant which prides itself on serving FRESH, BEAUTIFUL & DELICIOUS food – It certainly did deliver!
This little gem brings Japanese food at its best to Newcastle city centre. The staff greeted us with a smile and promptly took us to our table. It may have been a Tuesday evening but the restaurant was fully booked so we were glad that we had booked ahead.
The menu has a great selection of dishes and also has a set menu; we chose to dine from the main menu. There was so much to choose from that we were spoilt for choice. It did take some time for us to finally decide on our dishes. I will definitely have to re-visit Osaka very soon to order the dishes that I didn’t.
The food was amazing; it definitely provides what it promises – the food was fresh, beautiful and delicious and excellent value for money.
The staff were extremely friendly and very attentive and helped with our final decisions for menu choices. It is definitely a restaurant that I will be visiting again very soon.
What we ordered:
Chicken Katsu £6.20
Salmon, Tuna & Eel Sushi £6.40
Eel & Tobiko Fried Rice £11.80
Teriyaki Salmon Bento Box – this includes; salad, Japanese pickles, salmon sashimi 3pcs, maki 2pcs, sushi 2pcs, rice and miso soup. £15.50
All the dishes were absolutely delicious – I eat sushi a lot and this has to be the best that I have tasted. I ordered the Chicken Katsu and the Bento Box but really I should have just ordered the box as there was a lot of food. However I did manage to eat every last grain of rice.
· Excellent service
· Excellent value for money
· Fantastic presentation and attention to detail
· A great casual dining experience
· If you can’t eat it all they allow you to take home ‘doggy bags’
Highly Recommend – great food in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
