A mixed bag - Some food was good, some not. – I've been to Oishii three times now, and I feel better about reviewing them.
Some of the foods they have are great, like the curry chicken and the much ballyhooed volcano roll. I wasn't so impressed with the corn and crab soup. It was edible, but "delicate" to the point of being bland. We dined on Tuesday, hoping to take advantage of the Dollar Sushi special, but when the sushi didn't come out for over a half hour, I gave up and cancelled the order.
In short, it's a good place to eat, but service may be spotty.
Best sushi in town – always fresh, looks like a local neighborhood place, great rolls and always warm edamame. This is not your typical see-and-be-seen Dallas establishment but it is well known. At the tollway and Wycliff, next to Sal's, another great place to eat. It doesn't look like the safest place in town but the sushi is outstanding.
fresh sushi – this is my favorite sushi place in town. the sushi is always fresh and thanh (the owner) cuts the fish really nice and thick. Oishii rolls is my favorite, deep fried soft shell crab. the regular menu is also good and lunch specials are a deal. on tuesday's it's dollar sushi and the only drawback is that it takes a long time to get the sushi and it's limited to 6 pieces of each sushi. so if you have more than six people, not everyone will be able to try everything. (that's why i only go with the hubby on tuesdays now, so we can have the eel to ourselves)
Best sushi and asian fare for everyday dining – We recently moved to Dallas from San Francisco and missed being able to sample asian flavors, including a sushi go to place until we happen to come upon Oishi. You basically can't go wrong with any of the dishes, both off the regular menu or the sushi menu. The sushi is consistently of great quality, well priced, and on Tuesdays, they have a $1 per sushi special, and on Wednesdays half price on bottle of wines. The sushi takes a bit longer to prepare, but the wait is worth it. The only thing they lack is tempura, but they make up for it with a great seaweed salad and other appetizers. We like going for lunch as well as dinner during the week.
Scrumptious Sushi – Have a snack before you go because there will be a wait. Once you sit down, expect about 45 minutes for your sushi to be prepared. I recommend ordering appetizers, which include the classic egg roll, spring roll, or edamame, because it?s definitely worth the wait. The sushi menu, in general, lacks creativity however, the On the Border roll is a unique twist on a classic roll, topped with pico de gallo. For those that don't care to eat sushi, the Chinese and Vietnamese dishes may be more appealing. While they serve beer, wine and sake, an added bonus is you can bring your own wine for an $8 corking fee. The restaurant is located in a strip center, the decor is equally bland, but the atmosphere is worth the sacrifice for some tasty, affordable sushi in the heart of Dallas.
Best Best Best – A few years ago when we stumbled upon Oishi, we were amazed at the find! Not only did they have a fresh and varied array of sushi, but they had a delicious selection of Vietnamese courses as well. The prices are slightly lower than other sushi restaurants around town, but the service and food do not dissapoint. The 'Hot and Sour Fire soup' warms your mouth and belly equally, and the 'On the Border Roll' is a mouth watering, Tahn original creation. We set out to tell our fellow dallacites of this rare find of a restaurant, and now-a-days the place is packed with Oishi regulars. The busy dinner hours is a testament to the quality and character of this Dallas jem.
Food only ok, but did not try sushi – My boyfriend and I have been here twice & both times some food is really delicious & some food just needs more work. The presentation is always beautiful but some of the food could use more spices & flavor! The fried tofu is bland, no flavor at all & they give you soy sauce to dip it in. It's not good. The calamari sea salt is also ok, but i've had way better. The orange beef was also okay, but the sauce was to sweet & made our beef too soggy. We didn' try the sushi, but the dishes were only okay. We're both Asian, so we had high expectations, but we're somewhat disappointed. The price is reasonable & probably will go back and try the sushi, but maybe not the oither dishes.
Yummy volcano roll – I've had the volcano roll at many place and no place makes it the same way chefs at Oishii does. It's AMAZING and I take people to the restaurant and make sure they try it! The selection is pretty good... offering Japanese and Vietnamese cuisine. The rolls and sushi pieces are exceptional. ..... you'd be surprise to find it beats all the sushi restaurants in the metroplex.
Fresh sushi, good vietnamese, great prices – We're addicted. We come here at least twice a week, if not more. One of the best deals in town for sushi. The owner Thanh is always at the sushi bar and may be one of the nicest sushi chefs I've ever met. If you catch him when he's not too busy, tell him what you like, or don't like, and he will create a dish just for you! On the menu, don't miss the Pho soup. If you're adventurous and want a real treat, order the while fried fish "Vietnamese" style with sauce on the side. It comes with lettuce leaves and fresh herbs and vegetables that you roll abound the pieces of hot, juicy, and crunchy fish. Don't order if you're squeamish about seeing a whole fish w/ head and tail.
Great, fresh sushi – I love this place. And I've been to many famous sushi restaurants all over the world. The sushi and rolls are delicious. I have Oishii's at least 3 times a week. Not the most creative sushi menu but the chefs will make you anything you want. The "regular" menus is also wonderful. Truly authentic chinese and vietnamese dishes. I would HIGHLY recommend this to any sushi/asian food lover!
P.S. The prices are very reasonable....
