“Consistently Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Although the restaurant tends to be rather noisy, which sometimes makes conversation a challenge, the food is always fresh and aromatic. We've never been able to fault the service either. My family eats here on a regular basis because the food is consistently good. Try the Californian rolls and sizzling seafood! Yum!

“Went there in 2011 - very nice staff and tasty food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Nothing to dislike, it was a very busy night but the staff were unfailingly patient and friendly and even though there were so many people we were not rushed by our waiter. He took the time to explain some of the menu and even helped us with how to pronounce some of it.

“Much better than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We ended up in Oishii as a last resort, because none of the highly rated Hunter Valley restaurants is open on a Monday evening, much to our disappointment.
However, I have to say that the food was excellent, the wine delicious and the service absolutely charming. The room feels like an aircraft hangar, with poor acoustics and not much atmosphere, but the delightful service more than compensated and the food was genuinely excellent. We particularly liked the Californian rolls and the tempura prawns.

“Tasty food in a modest setting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Oishii is a change from the fine dining available in the Hunter and priced to match. Our group of 6 enjoyed a pleasant meal of mixed Thai and Japanese dishes with pleasant wine and beers to go with it. Pleasantly inexpensive too and the service was good. Will certainly return.

“Great friendly service and yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

After attempting to go to Goldfish next door, we were cleared a table straight away, the food was fast and fresh, and the waitressers were lovely and friendly, they even called us a cab after our meal. Will definitely go again
