Oishi is a Friday night regular destination for us. The selection of fish is not exceptionally broad, but the quality is pristine. The owner understands the importance of freshness and only stocks fish that sell. They also prepare their own saba (vinegared mackerel) and it is the best I have ever eaten. Tuna, salmon, yellowtail, albacore, eel, octopus are always... More

I've eating here a handful of times. The nigiri has always been fresh and well-cut. The rolls are also very good, although the selection is more traditional and limited than many of the sushi restaurants in Portland and elsewhere. The place isn't flashy (smaller dining room with basic furnishings and located in a strip mall), but it delivers a good... More

This place serves a decent version of traditional sushi with many of the fusion creations...at fusion prices. See my other reviews for better recommendations

Large portions. Fish is good and fresh. Lots of rolls and hand rolls. Special rolls were very large. 8 pieces. Smaller rolls 6 pieces. Lots of sake choices. Fast service. Prices moderate.

This little hole in the wall has some of the best sushi in town. Not much else to say here. Good sushi, fair prices, what more could you ask for in Vancouver?

I've definitely had better sushi, but not by much. While I'm not an expert on sushi I know what I like and have found a good selection here. I've visited several times and the quality is consistently good.

Always looking for a wow and this place didn't deliver one. In the world of good, better and best. This is good. Service was attentive, probably the best aspect of our visit. Pricing was fair for what was presented.

Fairly non descript restaurant in modern mall literally right behind a good Residence Inn. Very well made sushi, excellent specialty rolls and nice, firm, fresh five different fish in well made nigiri. Wife is serious sushi fan eating same all over the world including Japan and gave the nigiri a B+ to A- rating. My bento box was definitely above... More

Pretty standard Japanese restaurant. I have always enjoyed a good Bento Box and was not too disappointed. The tempura wasn't hot and the teriyaki was a bit too sweet. The tuna roll was quite good. The server was moderately pleasant. All in all I was satisfied but not delighted.

The Sushi is very good. Maybe a bit expensive. Slow service on our visit. Never refilled drinks. The staff is very friendly.
