Osaka Sushi and Hibachi is now open at Woodbury Lakes.
Located near the Tamarack Road entrance to Woodbury Lakes, the restaurant opened Tuesday, May 7. It’s at 9000 Hudson Road, suite 622.
Behind the main restaurant area of Osaka, formerly Kenichi Japanese and Sushi, are 12 hibachi tables in a large open room. People don’t need reservations to see the show from the teppanyaki chefs, but they are recommended, Lin said.
There is also a sushi bar, and Osaka has a full liquor selection. The menu is listed on its website.
The patio space will likely be utilized within a few weeks, Lin said.
The Woodbury location is the eighth in Minnesota for Osaka.
About 15 employees were hired, and more may be added in the coming months, depending on need, Lin said.
While construction issues delayed the opening, people have been stopping by and calling to make reservations, said Helen Lin, manager.
“They seem really excited,” she said.
