New Years Eve at Oishi was quite an experience, we were greeted by a cheerful Japanese lady, our hostess was excellent. The appetizers we each had were super-delicious (coconut shrimp)...our sushi-sashimi platter was ok for an experience however I didn't know the green stuff was wasabi and it was "mega-spicy". All of a sudden I see a male server approach... More

Great time at Oishi. The hibachi was really good. The decor could use some sprucing up though but we had a good time and it is in a great location in down town Tampa right where the action is.

So we show up at Oishi to get some sushi before the New Years Events. However, about 20mins after being seated we had yet to have a server ask about drinks or appetizers. At about 30 mins my dinner partners requests a server to which the response was "we are very busy." I have to be honest we were contemplating... More

We stopped here after walking from the MAriott riverside. Food was great. Server was attentive. The rolls were large with very fresh fish. The apple sake was fun. We didn't realize we could have also ordered from the Thai menu. Wish we lived closer.

In all fairness, my husband and I left this restaurant before actually eating our meals. We arrived at the restaurant on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was not busy and we were seating toward the back. It took 10 minutes before our waitress came over to greet us. We placed our order, which included side salads and several sushi rolls.... More

We loved the sushi for starters and then followed with vegetable tempura and shrimp tempura. We sat near a grill and watched the show vs paying the price for hibachi. Location works well they are right off the river walk and on a street car stop. Wish there were more stores in the area. Staff was friendly.

We had an early dinner at Oishi, the wait staff were very good and the tempura was good. The prices are just a little high, but the restaurant's décor is lovely. I'm sure in the evening this is a fun place, but all was quite at 6pm. It was a little hard to find on the second floor and the... More

Located on the 2nd floor of a quiet shopping mall, this restaurant is quite convenient for visitors to the Cruise Terminal, the Convention Centre and the Florida Aquarium. Extensive Menu. Sushi turns out OK but nothing special. We found the good deals are the Bento boxes: Sashimi Bento was $13 and came with 4-5 pieces of mixed Sashimi, California Roll,... More

Unfortunately i am back in the UK... More

Wonderful place to go after the aquarium! Rolls were delicious and tight, rice was perfect, and service was great. Our toddler loved his veggie roll! Very welcoming staff.
