Went with 2 friends; and service was absolutely horrible. Food was good-- small portions on the appetizers, though. Was brought the completely wrong thing the first time (ordered vegetable tempura appetizer) and got a shrimp tempura sushi roll-- chose not to throw a fit about it, but found it odd because she even repeated my order back to me, and...

Went there for lunch today with my wife and two sons. We started with the fried dumplings, these were over-fried and came dripping in oil. My wife and eldest son had Sushi, which they both said was OK, but myself and younger son had Pepper Chicken and Teriaki Chicken respectively. Both of these dishes were completely lacking in any kind... More

A college-student destination as the prices are low, nevertheless over six years, we have one lunch or dinner at Ishi's every trip for the chicken or steak teriyaki. Just a fun, easy place to get in and out of, and the seating is comfortable enough, more so than small strip mall places.

My wife and I had dinner at Ishi while staying in Winston-Salem for a Valentine weekend getaway. We had been in the mood for Japanese food and had made reservations at a chain "cook at your table" restaurant nearby. We did not receive service at the first restaurant for almost an hour, and so left that restaurant in anger. We... More

The food was good and you got a lot of it. It is very affordable. I had hibachi steak and some sushi and an adult beverage and my total was under $20.00.

We happened upon this little restaurant sort of happenstance and were really glad to have found it. Although the atmosphere is nothing special, the service is very friendly and the sushi is VERY good. We got the chef's sashimi platter which had some very unusual stuff on it, but it was all quite good. It's very reasonably priced as well... More

having read all the great reviews, i was excited to try a new sushi place, which are scarce in this town. the fish is fresh, maybe just a little better than that at Sakura, but the portions are tiny. sashimi orders are only one thin slice for $2. New York prices for Winston Salem sushi? I don't think so. miso... More
