Size matters at Osaka, where generous portions are the rule. We suggest the chirashi with a bento box of rice and generous cuts of varying fish with a spectrum of textures. When it’s available, order the escolar, a sweet, firm fish that melts in your mouth. The sushi offerings are creative, fresh, and enormous, though a bit pricey. But the complementary appetizers, sushi roll samples and free green tea, mango, ginger or red bean ice creams make you feel like you're getting something extra. It’s a great place to drop in for a bite before you head out to party on lower Westheimer or in Midtown.

A recent redo, with burnished wood floors and improved lighting, has brightened up the restaurant. But don't fear, the atmosphere remains simple, understated and serene (although the lights were a little too bright on the night we visited).
