Sushi in tampa bay

Yes OSAKA rocks! The BEST spicy Tuna handrolls BY FAR...Ginormous! We have been going theer for many years regularly...
I will say that i unfortunatly had a few bad service experiences there(and I mean TERRIBLE service!!)....so avoided it in favor of KINJO on Tyrone....
Kinjo never disappoints! Try the SPicy Tuna Bowl, Crystal Roll...mmm Im getting hungry!!
But last time i went back to Osake they finally had decent service...but it fell to number 2 on our list..
we eat sushi AT LEAST 2 times a week!!
I did love Fuji YAma until a hair in my roll, with no offer to take it off the bill....followed by my next visit getting a crab shell that felt like i bit GLASS and hurt my tooth....again , no replacement/or offer to remove from bill....so thats off the list
T'Asia is pretty good, try the Screaming Salmon
