The food was absolutely delicious but the restaurant had very inflexible practices. For example, they were unwilling to seat our group as a large party unless we signed a mandatory contract to spend 100 per person. We had to divide into two tables to avoid...More

Since my first visit in 2011 this restaurant became our favorite one. I fell in love with this place. Romantic interior, music. The food is always amazing, creative and delicious. Special thanks to Mr.Ting (owner and chef) for such a great place.

High end Japanese cuisine, fresh and expensive ingredients. It doesn't have the hip atmosphere of Ruka (where Oishii's chef created the sushi menu too). It's not a NYC stylish space like Red Lantern but more delicious.

I'm tired of screaming across a restaurant table, Somehow, Oishi has mastered acoustics - quiet dining, and I love it. This restaurant is Zen simplicity but elegant. The food is above average in price but way above average in taste. IF you order tempura, don't...More
