This famous gyoza chain from Osaka has been operating since 1969 and has multiple branches around the world. The casual eatery specialises in pan-fried handmade dumplings and a variety of Chinese-style Japanese stir fries such as mapo tofu, cha han fried rice and sweet and sour pork.
The nicest gyoza ever! The set is value for money. The egg is very smooth, I would suggest to share this dish as one would get sick of it after a while. The ramen soup is very clear but tasty.
My fiancee and I were craving for ramen, and we decided to go to the Japanese restaurants in Westgate. All the other Japanese restaurants had long queues, but we found Osaka Ohsho without any queue at all (that should have been a clue!!), and we decided to go in and have some ramen. I decided to get the Chef's recommendation '5 Spices Pork Ramen', while Lily got the 'Keika Taro Ramen'. We also got a 4 pc gyoza sidedish, and mabo tofu.
I found my 5 Spices Pork ramen so-so. I liked the pork, and found the soup okay. Nothing special about it~ which is a bad thing considering it was the Chef's recommendation. Meanwhile, Lily's Keika Taro Ramen was not so good. The pork was tough, and the soup was more oil than flavor. Lily liked the mabo tofu, but I found it boring. It's sauce was okay though. We did like the gyoza, and with the other food we ate, that was already the highlight.
More frustrating was the bill of $45 for the small meal- a $45 that could have been better served elsewhere. Overall, so-so ramen. I don't recommend Osaka Ohsho for its ramen. The gyoza was okay, and I might be interested in more. But because of the price, I'm probably not coming back anytime soon.
Just my honest opinion.
The noodles have a decent texture but the soup base is absolutely horrid. It tastes like they poured an entire bottle of soy into my soup. Even after adding water the soup taste extremely salty. And to think I even paid 40 dollars for my meal. The chasu is also bland and taste rock hard. Absolute waste of time. The only reason why I decided to make an account was to tell everyone about y here at probably the worst ramen restaurants in the world.
