The atmosphere was fairly plain but the food and service more than made up for it! It was fairly priced. Also, conveniently located next to Fisbowl where you can enjoy a nice cocktail before or after dinner.

We visited Oishii on Friday 13 April, 2012 after a recommendation from our winery tour guide (Grahame from Two Fat Blokes) and we were not disappointed.

After a lovely afternoon visiting wineries we were all in the mood for a nice dinner to finish off a great day. Oishii delivered in spades - the service was attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. We had a great evening.

We enjoyed the curry puffs, chicken satay, duck curry, massaman beef, fried whole fish and pad kee mao noodles and couldn't fault anything. I'll give the duck and the massaman a special mention as they were really wonderful - I've visited Thailand numerous times over the past 35 years and was impressed by the authentic flavours produced by the Oishii chefs. This authenticity is something that is sadly lacking in a lot of Thai restaurants in Australia. I also loved the fact that the pad kee mao were as peppery and as spicy as those I'd eat in Thailand.

A great place - we'll be back for sure!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our wine tour guide and it was the most amazing meal! The food was the most authentic Thai outside Thailand. The staff were terrific and so friendly.

We had booked in advance and also confirmed the day before. When we arrive (8 of us), they couldn't find out booking, the staff were rude. They put together a couple of tables but the service was not great and the food just below average.
