Everything that we had here was really good and in particular the white salmon was incredible. In addition, the sushi and other signature rolls are very tasty.

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.

Definitely the best Japanese restaurant I have ever tried, the Pasta with Uni, truffles and fried eggs made the dinner amazingly tasty. This is definitely a must in Boston...

We asked chef Ting to chose dishes for us, which made the evening very unique. We were not in a mood for any pork or red meat so it was pure fish, seafood, and vegan dishes. And it was incredible. We also had a chance...More
