Excellent food an beautiful presentation.
Great evening, food was creative and delicious, service was great! Terrific overall.
Very solid reliable sushi and Japanese food with a unique flair (not traditional, Nobu-esque). The service is impeccable, the waiter I recognized from years ago, so longtime staff which is a good sign. Atmosphere is intimate and hip and great for dates, although I was on a "date" with my son! The miso cod, rock shrimp tempura and pork bun were delicious. Not inexpensive but you will be guaranteed to have a quality Japanese food.
Excellent food. The wait for food was long.
Food is very good but the prices are jaw dropping... $100 per person (with one drink) and left needing to eat another dinner.
First time at Oishii. Good presentation of food but the flavor didn’t not complete the presentation. Food was so mediocre. We asked the waitress for recommendations and she couldn’t really give us any, just named a few popular items from the menu. Per her suggestion we got the duck in apple and it was so raw, the meat was red, FAIL! The escargot tempura was bland no flavor. The ultimate crispy sushi roll felt like it came from a mall food court. The pork belly bun was so -so, nothing special or different. The Youme Hamachi was too smoked in flavor, overpowered the fish. Finally we had the coconut sphere desert and it was great. That was the best part of dinner. I had high hopes for Oishii as I l frequent Uni Boston and Nobu when traveling. But lesson learned, just stick to Uni and O Ya and don’t stray away anywhere else for real sushi in Boston. I will never go back to Oishiii
The attention is really bad. Extremely high priced for little amounts of food. This is not a place where you come to get full it’s a place where you try little amounts of good quality.
Creative and tasty food. While the menu is a bit hard to decipher, every bite of sushi, maki, and appetizers was nicely crafted and presented.
The lunch menu is of great value and you get to taste many different dishes. I would highly recommend having lunch there.
Fantastic meal for a date night with my wife! The food was truly outstanding. We ordered a few things but the chefs special sushi and sashimi really stole the show. We were comparing the quality of the fish to our experience at the Tokyo fish market so definitely in the very top quality. Only thing was the ambiance seemed a little lacking compared to the food quality and service.
We are longtime patrons of Oishii, and it is always great!
A wonderful dining experience. The options were many, the dishes were quite original, appetizers were spectacular (salmon ceviche, crab dumplings), and dessert was a feast for our tastebuds. We requested a quiet table and one was made available for us. It is a lovely restaurant, great service, and spectacular food. Will certainly be back.
I have found most of Chinese made and owned Sushi restaurants in Boston are lack of services and professionalism. I sat at Sushi bar and watched Sushi chef grabbing and squeezing fish meat before sliced them. The sushi chefs were chatting, laughing and making fun of each other in front of customers who sit in front of them. May be because the lightings were too deem for waiters to take away the dishes that were still contained food. I have to constantly remind the waiters that I am still eating. Overall, it is Chinese owned and made Japanese restaurant.
Great sushi! Amazing spot you feel like you are in on a hidden secret!
One of the best sushi restaurants in the country and among the top three in Boston (Pabu, OYa). It’s always wonderful at Oishii. If you like Uni there’s both Hokkaido and Santa Barbara, the latter tastes right out of the shell, fresh, sweet and light. And the sake lust is great. You’ll spend your rent money but it will be worth it!
Amazing food and service
Had a great dinner. Nic was our waiter and was attentive, knowledgeable, made the night special. We had appetizers, soup and sushi. Everything was perfect.
Wonderful experience all around! Fabulous evening of food, service and ambience.
Oishii is good, but there are other high-end sushi places that are better. I'd suggest Uni.
I came from Philadelphia with colleagues as I’ve been here before and it was AMAZING yet again! I’m back in December and will book my rsvp!!
This is by far the best Japanese Restaurant I have ever been to in North America. The Omakase was spectacular - Artistically constructed dishes of pure joy and flavor! Chef Ting is a master -- and an awesome dude.
Great experience. Food is good. People are friendly.
A little bit hard to find the entrance (we passed it and came back).
It’s not traditional Japanese food, kind of a combination of Japanese and Italian, but tastes really good
The restaurant was not crowded, but we felt rushed. We were there for a special occasion, so although the food was wonderful, it wasn't the leisurely ev ending we'd hoped for.
Good restaurant. Great food and service. High spending but worth the experience.
Absolutely great service, our server was attentive and at some point the chef came over and checked in on us also. The food was okay, there was nothing special about it which was disappointing. Had the lobster dumplings (which were really ragoons), lobster maki (also okay) and spicy edemame (which I hated).
It's a little spendy, but very delicious. Would recommend.
Overall the food was good, NOT great but every good. The presentation is very nice but the most spicy item to us was really not spicy at all, almost bland. I would expect flavors to pop. The best choices were the lobster options.
Excellent food. Ambiance is a little dark but overall the service and food was excellent
My husband and I have been dining at Oishii since it opened in the South End, and we are always delighted with our experience. The service, atmosphere and, of course, the food are excellent. Chef Ting's creativity shines in every way, from the special dishes to the flowers and now the cherry blossom tree he made himself. In short, we love Oishii!
Salmon on fire is outstanding. Mango tuna roll with lime was one of the best ever. Toro prosciutto was sad and small. Service was impeccable with great attention to my wife’s allergy. Very delicious and wonderfully playful and creative presentations for everything. A must try. Too bad they don’t enforce a dress code. Too many young college aged kids dining with sweatpants, hats and just looking out of place. Keep it classy.
Just fantastic in every way.
It was our first time to the city and we couldn’t have picked a better restaurant for our first dinning experience is the city! The food was amazing, the staff was very professional and catered to all needs, the restaurant was very clean and organized, we will definitely be back and I will recommend to all my friends and family
The absolute best sushi - anywhere. And they have a nice menu for people who don't eat sushi.
We had a great time here. We got seated right away. Service was good thought it started to lag a bit at the end. We sat around for quite a bit before we were able to order dessert and then had to wait more before our waiter came back when we wanted the check. The food was amazing. Very unique and great variety. It is expensive, but we are very glad that we ate here. We recommend the salmon on fire, uni pasta, and lobster dumplings. The ambiance was really nice- we sat in the room with the sushi bar. The one sushi roll we had (spicy crunchy roll) did not blow us away. It was really nothing special. Overall we recommend this place and would come back if we’re ever in Boston again. It’s perfect for date night. We’d love to try the ramen and the squid in pasta next time.
Creative & delicious food. Wonderful presentation & fabulous taste profiles. Highly recommend. Best Sushi in Boston !!!
Excellent sushi. The restaurant is divided into several small rooms with tables. Very nice decor. Next time I’ll sit at the sushi bar.
Overrated. Over priced.
Amazing everything. First time visit and will return as regulars when I move to Boston. No regrets and great price for great quality.
Our experience at Oishii was wonderful. The food is easily the most creative and flavorful sushi in all of Boston. The waitstaff was helpful in ordering and were spot on with their suggestions. We will definitely continue to partonize this restaurant.
