A local Worcester Park favourite for romantic dinners and group gatherings, Osaka Japanese Restaurant on Malden Road is attracting aficionados of real Japanese cuisine from all over London. Showcasing spectacular seafood straight from the source, along with juicy meat dishes, vegetarian noodle or rice specialties and refreshing desserts, Osaka is an absolute must for lovers of the Japanese way of eating, from exquisite service and ceremony to unforgettable food.
Excellent food and reasonable prices. But the service is a bit chaotic, people were waiting for their food whilst others had been served. Not all items on the menu were available and it would have been helping to have been told this before we tried to order them. However, the staff are extremely pleasant.
Found on Malden Road just a stone’s throw from Malden Manor station, Osaka Japanese Restaurant is undoubtedly one of Worcester Park’s top dining destinations. They really focus on the entire meal experience, not just exquisite food. Osaka’s dining room is an intimate but elegant space with a bustling atmosphere, but the efficient table plan allows enough privacy for a romantic dinner for two. The staff are friendly and attentive, and their passion for Japanese cuisine and willingness to share this to help guests make an informed dinner choice really help put Osaka among the very best Japanese eating experiences in all of London. Then of course there is the food.
Sprinkled across Osaka’s extensive menus are plenty of Japanese delicacies hard to find without traipsing all over London. Unsurprisingly, seafood features prominently in all menus and at Osaka, seafood means vibrant, succulent and practically still wet – it’s hard to hold back from the tako octopus nigiri or sea bass sashimi, and a chunky grilled scallop steak with asparagus is a favourite main meal. If you’re unsure, trust the chefs and their beautiful sushi or sashimi platters, which are also perfect for sharing in large groups. Just be sure to book ahead, because the word is out on this Japanese juggernaut on Worcester Park’s Malden Road.
