A coworker and I visited Osawa for lunch. My coworker had been there several times and could not stop recommending their Shabu Shabu. The hostess and servers are very friendly and needless to say the Shabu Shabu was excellent. I will definitely go back to...More

Very popular restaurant. We were interested in the shabu shabu but they were fully booked. We were able to have a table and order small plates and sushi. We shared albacore sashimi, California roll, two chicken dishes, eggplant and pickled daikon. All beautifully prepared and...More

Three of us ate at Osawa while in Pasadena for a conference. The Shabu Shabu was excellent, as was the sushi. It's a little noisy, but the staff is outstanding. Be sure to make a reservation!

Oshawa was truly amazing. Everything from the Bagna Cauda to the Sashimi was truly delicious - an experience. We regularly travel to Japan and have lived in Uji. I would not call this "authentic" because it caters to western tastes - in a truly good...More

Went here for the first time this weekend and everything was fresh and delicious. Just happened that this restaurant was close to the hotel. We had the fish of the day ($45) and learned that they only had one. Half of the fish was served...More
