Having been recommended by our concierge at our hotel we took the chance to sample the food at Oishi and we weren't disappointed. Great tasting food served quickly and attentively by the waiting staff. I'd recommend the Geisha cocktail for sure! We eat Japanese/Asian fusion regularly in London but this was so much better. Well done Boston and well done... More

Oishii is good restaurant but if you have any Vegetarian in your party then they dont have much options. Food overall is good and place is neat and clean.

We had a table in the back of the restaurant by the wall. Cannot say the decor was great unless gray paint and concrete is your style...same for the very small table with ok tableware and very close to the other table next to us...Also, if you want to offer your customer some hot towels before dinner (very nice idea),...

We were here twice and loved the food both times - both the sushi and their other main causes. It is well visited, so it is a good idea to order a table in advance.

Had an amazing meal. Eclectic Omakase menu with each dish a delicious surprise of varied ingredients. The presentation and service was superb. Only complaint was the food kept arriving at the table long after we were sated. That said the last two courses, waygu beef and dessert were worth the extra notch on the belt.

This restaurant really doesn't look much from the street, in fact I wasn't convinced we were in the right place, however the cab driver assured us we were and that it was a great choice for dinner. He wasn't wrong. The vibe of the restaurant is very cool but not pretentious, the tables are in 3 separate rooms so each... More

Great sake menu and choice of sushi including different o-toro and uni! The bar area looks and feel more like a bar than the fine dining experience in the restaurant. Avoid the downstairs area as the restaurant loses all its charm.

Amazing sushi, very modern vibe and really different from any place in Boston. The sushi's fresh and the signature dishes are very unique. Go. Now.
