And, located just a few minutes from Monument Metro Station, it provides the perfect spot to meet for a convenient and delicious meal during the day.
For business and leisure diners alike, Osaka has a fantastic lunch set menu, with plenty to choose from. At £8.50 for one course, £10.50 for two courses and £13.50 for three courses, the eatery managed to balance good value with high quality cuisine, too.
For starters, we shared a delicious selection of speciality maki and temaki sushi, which were recommended as best sellers by the serving team at Osaka and was fresh with dynamic hot and sweet flavours.
For my main I sampled the chicken katsu curry don and it definitely did not disappoint! The succulent chicken breast in crispy breadcrumbs and vegetables were served with a rich and mildly spiced curry sauce which was full of flavour.
To finish our lunch, we sampled a range of authentic Japanese desserts. Although perhaps an acquired taste for some, the green tea ice cream was a lovely and refreshing taste and finished the meal perfectly.
My dining companions echoed my view of the excellent dining experience we had at Osaka Newcastle, with plans to return in the future. It is apparent the seamless blend of Japanese dining and contemporary décor will continue to attract diners from across the North East.
