Brenda & I went to OSAKA Japanese Steak House & Sushi located at 3035 Hwy 14 Lake Charles, LA, 337-990-5478 (in the shopping plaza where the old Krogers use to be). This is a must go. $$ pricing is very affordable, atmosphere is soft & elegant and ideal for that 1st date, business meeting or graduation celebration...hint hint. I felt a little underdress but Joe, owner, welcomed us to enjoy the restaurant. This place will have you happy. Jessica, our waitress, is friendly and showed interest in Brenda & my dining experience. The chief sent over a complementary squid salad, that I will request again, that is very tasty. All the food is pleasing to the eye and taste buds. For example, the cucumber were cut to resemble lotus flower petals. I only realize it was eatable after I touched it. Yes! that beautifully detailed. Osaka is five star dining experience. Joe, I will must surly return. Thank you for bringing a taste of Japan to Lake Charles.
The place was clean and the service was good. The food was overpriced. Didn't try any drinks. Order Blarney Stones as an appetizer. They were good and we actually got more than I thought. My husband ordered some double patty Irish burger. The burger patties were handmade and delicious. The bun was sourdough and appeared to be homemade. The fries were pre packaged, nothing special. I ordered the beer battered fish and chips. The menu said it came with hand cut chips, I subbed for fries. All other fish and chips I've ever hand ha fries. Again the fries were prepackaged = yuck. The fish was horrible. It was not beer battered fish and chip style , but more like a piece of Cajun fried catfish. It was suppose to be cod (I believe) but looked and tasted like a fat piece of catfish. The fish tasted like dirt. We ended with the bread pudding, which was delicious. I left very unhappy, not sure I'd go again.
