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

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!
