The food at Oh Sushi was surprisingly Japanese for Malaysia. I was expecting something similar to the US where they only serve strange rolls (eg. Caterpillar Roll, Spider Roll). However, what we saw was authentic Japanese food that you might find in Japan. The tempura was particularly great, as it was not over cooked as it usually is. The miso soup was properly made with an underlying base soup prior to applying the miso, allowing us to experience Japan in Penang.
There were a couple of exceptions to the food. The "spicy" pork roll was unbelievably spicy, to the point where a local Malaysian was shocked at how spicy it was. This would be unsuitable at a Japanese restaurant like this, as it would not represent what Japanese people eat. There should at least be a warning that says that the spiciness is beyond what even a native Malaysian could handle.
The sushi was fairly good quality for Malaysia. The fish was fairly fresh, and the more expensive pieces had a good amount of fat on it. However, some of the fish may not have been fresh enough, as 3 out of 5 of us had light diarrhea the next day. I am not surprised about this though, as eating sushi in such a warm climate usually means that raw food spoils easily.
The service was very good, as expected at a Japanese restaurant. There was a hearty "irasshaimase" (welcome) when we entered the restaurant, and they refilled the tea at a regular pace. After complaining about the spiciness of the food, they gave us ice cream free of charge. Although this level of service is expected, it was pleasant to see this even in Malaysia.
