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... More

Best japanese food in area, small restaurant with very good sushi and japanese foods, very creative with great flavors and the staff is fantastic. Service is great and staff very attentive. Restaurant may seat only 15-20 people but staff is. Over 10 and all work hard.

This little hole in the wall has become my go to place for the best sushi I ever had. It's my new addiction. Their creations are to die for. After a long wait (totally worth it), we got seated on the bar and what we usually order is what the waiters recommend. Don't bother with the menu- Let them surprise... More

Always fresh, always great. Get the Paula sushi. I love the salmon sashimi, which is very sweet and very fresh. The miso soup is great too.

While working in Boston i went to Oishii hoping it would be a good sushi bar. I had looked on line and no one had good ratings near where I was staying. Decided to try this little sushi bar. It was just like Japan (I was just there in May 2013). Small only a few seats at the sushi bar... More

I've been to dozens of sushi restaurants all over the place, and this is one of the best. The sashimi is thick and melts in your mouth. Service is skilled and prompt. Highly recommended.

Tiny and intimate. Great to watch the sushi chefs. Everything is great, but we always have to have the Jeffrey roll which features a heated spicy crab and scallop topping. I had the king salmon sashimi and suggested it to my husband....melt in your mouth! A new roll for us, crazy roll, had egg, shrimp tempura, cucumber and a spicy... More

Unlike most of my well-traveled/well-cultured Trip Advisor peers, I have an unsophisticated palate and am far from being a sushi/sashimi aficionado. What I do know is that when I order from this place I end up paying a huge premium for sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls - and from my lowly vantage point, that premium these days is really not... More

Tasty, fresh, sushi. We love the maki rolls. Tiny sit-down bar, but it works just as well as take-out.

We took out from Oishii Chestnut Hill this evening: soft shell crab maki, Sea bass teriyaki, ikura, ika bana The crab was clearly pre cooked and over done to the point of disappearing in to the oily overcooked breading (the only other ingredient--visible or otherwise: shredded cucumber) . Also---very small portion of four pieces ($11). Sea bass: overcooked and swimming... More
