You will not find fresher, more delicious sushi anywhere in the Boston area than at Oishii Sushi. The place is tiny, so time your visit--you may have a wait. I like to tell them how much I'm willing to spend and let them do the rest. Everything is a treat and it is fun to be surprised and delighted by... More

Great food but a tiny place, always full, even off hours. Take out is the easier option, unless lucky enough to find a table

This has been a stand out sushi bar for years. I would stop by for take out 2 or 3 times a month. A great way to start the weekend.

This is a great little Sushi bar. The food is fantastic but beware its small so be prepared to wait for a table.

I've been to Japan, twice, and have eaten sushi all over the world at some of the best restaurants maybe it's my own idiosyncracy, but this is probably my favorite. Great prices too. Went out of my way for it when I was back in town.

Get it to go. The bar is so cramped there's no elbow room and last time I was there they only had one table. Food is delightful.

We came here tonight at about 5:30 because we know Oishii fills up quickly. We really enjoyed the sushi and okonomiyaki, and my son loved his miso soup and shrimp tempura, especially the thin tempura noodles it came with on the plate. The service is quick and efficient. We will definitely be going back!

This is the smallest restaurant you may ever enter. you have to flatten yourself against the wall and move sideways to get to the register to receive your takeout. you have to wait (and wait) until your order is ready. But boy is it worth waiting for! You can get sushi just about anywhere these days, including in the supermarket... More

If you want some of the best sushi you've ever tasted, head to a little place called Oishii Sushi Bar in Chestnut Hill, MA. The sushi literally melts in your mouth and the various rolls are simply delicious. Service is excellent, but the place is very small, so be prepared to sit at the counter or wait for one of...
