Went there after Turkey day and had a few Bento boxes, bimbimbap bowls and sushi rolls. The sushi was rated better than prepared cooked oriental dishes. Fast and fun not too pricey

Prices keep rising here, but it just isn't as good as it used to be. Ingredients seem less fresh, lower quality. Bento boxes and bibimbap are less savory than before. Hope they can get it back on track.

We had the Bibimbap. It was delicious, authentic and not to expensive. There is a small seating area upstairs.

Very tasty. Good for a to-go quick asian meal. The fried food are quite hard. Try spicy pork bento..

I'd recommend Sushi Fuku across the street instead. This is okay sushi, but nothing special. I won't go back, since there are better restaurants closer to home and even right across the street.

My son found Oishii Bento on line last night. Being that we are adventurous sorts we heading to Oakland. Great and easy parking two streets away! Warmly greeted in the tiny lobby area I went with the Spicy Pork Bibimbab and my son had the Spider Roll. A short wait had our food brought to us, piping hot and tasty... More

I traveled back to Pittsburgh for a few days and ate lunch at an old favorite. I ate Oishii Bento 3-4 times a week for 6+ years. Wonderful, fresh, quick, and inexpensive Korean and Japanese style take out. Sushi is some of the best in the city. Bento boxes are a great deal for the amount of food provided. I... More

The good thing about Oishii is it's pretty cheap. Service is ok. The food itself is ok--there's certainly better Korean and better sushi out there but it is pretty convenient.

Even though I love trying new things, I get the Oishii Roll almost every time I go. I even had a friend that doesn't really like sushi try it, & he was hooked.

I was initially sceptical of the food given that Asian food in non Asian countries tend to be rather watered down versions of original recipes. To my surprise the beef bento I ordered tasted very original. My family members who had the spicy pork and kimchi bentos also found the food delicious. Service was average, depending on whether you are... More
