Hibachi restaurant receives approval to open in Lafayette Hill

The Whitemarsh Township Board of Supervisors granted a conditional use to a hibachi restaurant with a business name of Osaka Hibachi Japanese, LLC, that sought to open within the Shoppers World shopping center in Lafayette Hill. The approval came during the supervisors’ August 12th meeting. The space involved is between the pharmacy and the nail salon.

We have previously reported on this, but one new thing we did learn during the meeting is that it will be takeout only. We also learned that it is not connected to a similarly named restaurant in Chestnut Hill.

An exact date for the opening wasn’t provided, but it has already been inspected by the health department, so preparations are well underway.
