Excellent Dining – My family loves this restaurant. Although pricy, it is all fresh and the quality makes it worth the price. We love the Korean dishes. We always make a reservation, even during weekday nights, as it is usually very crowded.
Great food and service! – We go for dinner and get take-out here. I would recommend to anyone. The food is always fresh and good. Crunchy tuna roll is our favorite!!
Favorite Restaurant !! – I've been dining here a few times in the past few months during the week and on weekends as well, and I must say that the food is addicting. After reading some of the bad reviews - I must say that this place gets ridiculously busy at times, and things do get a little hectic during prime time. I've never seen such a crowd on a weeknight in Newtown. HOWEVER, it is totally worth it. Food is delicious, Sushi is the best i've ever had (signature rolls) and its a BYOB. Plus, the servers are quite friendly if you get to know them.
What a horrible dinning experience – We made a reservation at 7pm, got seated until 7:35pm. Less than 10 seconds after being seated, we were rushed for orderings. We patiently waited for 40 minutes, then my padthai noodle came out. it was luke warm and the taste was not all that. My wife's sushi platter came out like a mess. Very disappointed.
If you are looking for a nice Japanese dinner, eat at your own risk here.
Be Careful – The problem I now have after eating at Oishi, is that no other Sushi even comes close to the quality, flavor, uniqueness, creativity. I am a regular since 2003, and travel extensively. But now, I don't even want to bother with other sushi places, regardless of where they are, I always leave disappointed. I hate settling for anything less than the best, and Oishi is the best. I've never had a service problem or issue, but really, who cares? Its the food, the food.
Disappointing Cuisine – We tried this place for dinner and called ahead to make reservations. The prolific pantheon of Asian delights left us feeling disappointed. Perhaps they should stick to the Japanese core competencie specialties such as Hibachi and sushi.
To start off, the dishes arrived cold and required salt. The Thai dishes all resembled a poorly done udon noodle soup sans the noodles. How in the world does a self-respecting chef screw up green Thai curry? The chicken was cut sashimi style, and boiled, not simmered in the broth. The resulting curry was very watery and yellow, not green at all. Perhaps the recession has taken hold because this dish had no coconut milk and a kafir lime leaf was also noteably absent. This curry was so watey that it did not stick to the rice accompaniment and I should have been tipped off when the server brought over an Asian soup spoon. Green Thai curry is not soup folks! When I commented on the bland taste, I was told, "you people like things spicy so you should order spicy next time." Hailing from a masala based civilization, I was quite taken back and was unaware a special recommendation would be required as to the degree of salt and amount of green Thai curry paste used. This was in no way Thai cuisine, it was the Ramen Noodles version. Futher, they should, at the least, invest in decent silverware.
Overall the experience left a lot to be desired. Be wary of resaurants the claim expertise in Thai, Japanese, Chinese and Korean food, all at the same time. These cuisines are distinct and this chef cannot pull all of them off. Not on my list of favs and I will not try it again. The Thai place in Doylestown is much better and well worth the 10 minute drive.
Undecided – I've eaten here twice and the second time experienced the rude service some of the other reviewers have described. Because the food is good, I am willing to give it another chance - will eat there tonight. By the way, for the folks who say there is no other good sushi in the area, try Charming Garden on Big Oak Road in Yardley.
Sushi doesn't get any better – I've had the chance to eat Sushi from coast to coast and this is as good as I've had anywhere. Sae's preparation is artful, tasty, looks great and many of the specialty rolls are originals to Oishi. I've had the chance to bring folks who eat Sushi regularly who live in LA, San Francisco and NewYork - and each one has acknowledged - it is the best they have ever had - period. Be aware the service is not always the best, but it is always adequate - for the best time sit at the counter and let Sae help you choose your courses... for sure you'll get something you might not get anywhere else.
One of the Best Sushi Places Around – I love Oishi, it is one of the best sushi restraunts i have ever been to. There food is amazing and the atmosphere are also great. They have a unique menu and special rolls you cant find anywhere else. The service can be alittle rocky sometimes but its worth it believe me!
