Amidst the many diverse restaurants in the Marlton Crossing, Osushi, a new sushi restaurant replaces the old Hallmark and ventures to make its way into the spotlight.

The new Osushi restaurant recently celebrated its grand opening  on March 13 and advertised the release by decorating the perimeter of the Marlton Crossing complex with small flags.

Upon entering, the polite staff immediately offers a friendly greeting and allows the customer to choose his or her seating, either along the side with tables with a couch and chairs or the tables with the traditional all-chair arrangement.

The restaurant’s interior design, which is indicative that they might’ve undergone services like design consult, decorated with bamboo along the wall along with comfortable seating, creates a serene Asian environment. Osushi offers a sushi bar to watch the sushi-chefs at their expertise, but there is no hibachi area.

The prices for main dishes range from 11 to 60 dollars. Soft drinks, tea, coffee and other beverages are available for a certain charge and adults are allowed to bring their own drinks. The menu includes much diversity, serving specialty entrees, tempura and soup in addition to the restaurant’s specialty: sushi.

Osushi offers a large variety of different sushi. They contain lobster, shrimp and an array of different fishes. The sushi can be prepared regularly (with seaweed and white rice), lightly fried or with a black rice substitute. Their sushi is the way it should be: not over-loaded with rice to the point where it overwhelms the inside and is small enough to eat in one bite. The wasabi and soy sauce combination for the sushi perfectly complements the sushi’s taste. Each dish comes with its own unique sauce; for instance, a sweet, flavorful mango sauce on the side supplements the golden mango sushi.

The restaurant opens at 11:30 a.m. Monday to Saturday and 12:00 p.m. on Sundays, and closes at 10:00 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10:30 p.m. Friday to Saturday and 9:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The chefs work hard to create an organized, appealing presentation for each individual dish, in addition to creating a delicious and flavorful meal, and their efforts pay off. The food at Osushi tastes delectable and offers a sense of Japanese authenticity, which is definitely worth trying.
