When asked for the first time who serves up the best Japanese food, Readers' Choice voters selected a Medford restaurant long popular for its teppanyaki tables — where the chef prepares the meal on a griddle in front of guests with a flash of spinning spatulas and pyrotechnics.
Oh's Osaka, at 123 S. Front St., was founded more than 15 years ago next-door to the old Greyhound bus station at Fifth and Bartlett streets.
It has moved twice since then to its present location, not far from the Medford library.
The restaurant's new digs are a combination of old and new, pairing new bamboo flooring and a granite-topped bar with an existing sushi bar setup and bamboo-roofed dividers.
The family-friendly restaurant is popular for birthday dinners and offers a full bar, children's menu and sushi.
Other favorites: Bonsai Teriyaki and Shoji's, both of Medford.
