We had some family come into town and went to Osabi to start the Christmas cheer. We have had our fair share if teppanyaki but our chef Gaspar was the most entertaining any of us ever had. The food was really good and they have a “Sunset” special which drops the price a bit. Great drinks on the menu and a great time had by all.

O-Sabi has great ambiance, is family friendly and a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. The meal "show" at the teppan is always fun, lively and surprising. And, the food is really good too! It's an excellent value and plenty of food. Lots of options. I love this place.

O-Sabi used to be our favorite place for teppan, and we would fight the gnarly northbound 101 traffic from Camarillo...but the last 2 times we've gone, we've been quite disappointed.

On our last visit, we were seated next to the water feature which was tagged up, looking a little ghetto. There were also several children running amok, and nobody saying anything to them, even as they were starting to interfere with one of the chefs.

We had a pill of a waitress who failed to refill drinks and bring steamed rice in a timely manner - I figure once dinner is being cooked, after the fried rice crowd gets their rice, the steamed rice should be at the table? Maybe that's just me.

The chef was at a table with 5 adults, so I imagine he wasn't looking forward to onion volcanoes and "choo choos". He just went through the motions of putting together the meal, which caused him to flow through quickly and not properly season the assorted proteins.

Dinner for 2, without alcohol or sushi, was around $60, so I'd expect a nicer experience...as it used to be, when O-Sabi was a fantastic place. Maybe we have just gone on the wrong nights?

One of the best teppan style restaurants in the county. The chefs are more engaging and fun (as they're supposed to be) than at most of these places. Also, they know how to properly grill the steak. Also the sushi is good, tastes fresh.

We went to O-Sabi to celebrate my daughter's Birthday. Seems everyone in there that night was celebrating Birthdays. We had 5:30 reservations so were able to order off the Sunset Menu. We all ordered a round of drinks to start, and then ordered combinations. Our Chef was really great! Entertained us throughout the process. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious. I could eat like this every night! When dinner was through, the waitress brought over a Birthday desert for my daughter. She also had us pose for a photograph, and gave her a copy of it. The service was fantastic, and we tipped accordingly. We will definitely be back, and we definitely recommend it. Next time we will try the Sushi.
