“Fresh sushi at good prices”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My friends and I ate at this restaurant over the past week. This little best kept sushi secret hole-in-the-wall serves fresh sushi at reasonable prices. Parking is hard to come by because the place is so busy but the side overflow lot helps. Wait time is usually at least 20 minutes at lunch or longer if they are really busy. Nothing fancy in terms of decor, but the food is what you go there for. The hand-rolls are flavorful and the sashimi is fresh. The miso soup is also fresh. I typically like this a day old to let the flavors soak in, but they serve so much of this that it is always fresh. They have a section on their menu which is named after customers favorites - you can't go wrong.

“Best Sushi in Houston for the price!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

If you want good, fresh sushi with a great pricetag, this is the place. Centrally located by Greenway Plaza, Oishii fills up real quick. There is usually a waiting list, but it is worth the wait. I'm telling you, this is a don't miss...it will be on your favorites list from the first visit!

“Affordable, Great sushi”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A small strip market non-pretentious sushi restaurant. Sushi is Fresh and get a good quantity for your buck. A great lunchtime bento box. Parking is limited, walk or arrive early at peak times.

“TERRIBLE service, good food”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

I am a pretty easy going person.... And I have better service at whataburger.
The food is great, don't get me wrong. However, we can never go back here for the lack of service....
The staff was drinking, texting, talking, hanging out. Not working, therefore we waited for food, drinks, tab, etc... Absolutely unbelievable.
