A GOOD ONE!

On a cold, blustery wintry day, a bowl of steaming udon noodle soup really hit the spot. Served piping hot and loaded with fresh seafood, this savory Nabeyaki soup was very satisfying. Agadashi tofu was our appetizer, and the ginger flavored dish was an ideal way to start the meal. The restaurant... read more

I've been going to Oishii since they opened and have never been disappointed. The fish is the freshest and their attention to detail and presentation is top notch. Whether smile sushimi or special makis, it doesn't get any better for sushi lovers. It is small...only 10 seats at the bar plus one table that can seat 5. If there is... More

Sushi is one of great passions in my life. I used to live in NYC and had superb sushi there. I also love Fukugaya in Boston, an very old-fashioned, high-quality pricy sushi restaurant. I discovered Oishii last July. The fish at Oishii is comparable to the best-quality NYC sushi restaurants. They always have a wide variety of fresh fish from... More

I was brought here by a friend for lunch, having read the wonderful ratings and reviews. I really wanted to like this place, but alas, the food did not live up to the hype. Some of the fish had a dull finish to it--as if not the freshest. Also, the sush was NOT rolled properly in the rolls--they fell apart-and... More

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
