This is a great place, always very busy so reservatioms are really needed. The food is excellent. This time we had several appetizers, and the dinner Bento . I had rock shrip in a slightly hot sause, fresh and very good, and the beef bulgochi, always a good coice. Oishi is a BYOB

“Excellent aisian food in a strip mall? YES!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

If you like sushi, this is an excellent place to get it. If you don't like sushi this is an excellent place not to get it (they have a solid variety of cooked foods. Food is most always fabulous (we order both sushi and cooked each time we go. This is a BYOB so you can save some bucks and spend it on more food! Our favorites are the bulgogi (tender cooked steak in a wonderfully flavoral sauce and the family sushi platter - pictured along with a variety of rolls). This feeds 4 of us however since we BOOB (bring our own booze) we order bento box (always solid), spring roll or two and usually a noodle dish. You really can't miss on the food.

The service is another story. It is rarely excellent but usually adequate (although last time we could not get enough water - our waiter was very busy and seemed to have a slacker of a busboy). The place is just too damned busy. Get a reservation if you plan on anytime 5:30 or later. We have only gone for dinner and so I can't speak to lunch time. They also do takeout. Give this one a go you will be glad you did.

“Quality Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a nice restaurant in a strip mall with surprisingly good fresh Asian food. It is BYOB and nearly always busy. Reservations are recommended. I do not eat raw seafood and always find something delicious to eat on the menu. Service is good - We have had both excellent service and average service on different visits. Prices are reasonable.

One of the best local places in Bucks for quality Asian food in a chic, modern setting. Prices are reasonable for the quality.
