As soon as you enter the restaurant, you will be impressed by the modern, yet elegant design. This atmosphere is clearly worthy of a date night or other special outings.

A few of our favorite menu items at Osaka Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar include the following:

Kick your meal off with a serving of one of the restaurant’s most popular appetizers. These traditional pork dumplings can either be fried or steamed.

Cowboy Roll
Combining the restaurant’s two main culinary specialties, this unique roll includes the New York strip, as well as more expected sushi ingredients such as scallions, avocado, and spicy mayo.

Tempura & Teriyaki Combination
While the restaurant serves both tempura and teriyaki entrees, many visitors struggle to choose between these two favorites. This combo meal removes the need for making such a difficult decision. Better yet, you don’t need to sacrifice sushi, as a California roll is included with every order. The bulk of the meal, however, involves shrimp and vegetable tempura alongside your choice of chicken, beef, salmon, or shrimp teriyaki.

Una-Jyu Donburi
If you’re feeling adventurous, try this unique take on classic Japanese donburi featuring BBQ eel over a bed of rice. Otherwise, you’ll also find traditional options such as katsu-don and oyako-don. 

Osaka Ninja Dinner For 2

Whether you’re craving steak, sushi, or gyoza, you’ll find plenty to love about the vast menu and culinary flair at Osaka Japanese Hibachi Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. Few Panama City Beach dining experiences are quite this enjoyable — or quite this memorable.

Insider Tips:
– The hibachi dishes are huge, so consider skipping your usual appetizer and launching straight into dinner. You’re still likely to return home with leftovers, but this technique will expedite your visit just a little — an essential, as the hibachi experience often involves a fair amount of waiting.
– Be sure to mention if somebody in your party has a birthday. Not only will you receive a free dessert, but you’ll also be serenaded by the waitstaff.
