    If you're staying near the Orlando Imternational Drive hotel area and are looking for a not that expensive good place to eat dinner at, this is a good option. Teppanyaki isngood as everythimg else. Nothing special but you won't regret it. The late dinner chef's turn makes a nice little show for teppanyaki!

    The interior of the restaurant was a bit off-putting but that is really the only negative for this restaurant. The food was excellent and plentiful. The chef, though not very outgoing, was observant and did a great job on meal preparation. After going to Oishi in Orlando, got back home to Minnesota and decided to go to Benihana. I think the Benihana chef was new, but it was such a let down after Oishi. Will definitely go back when we're in Orlando.

  • Ok but I've had better
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 4/18/2014
    Our family loves Habachi so naturally we wanted to experience it during our vacation to Florida. The service and restaurant ambiance was fine but the food was bland. It doesn't compare to bigger chains like Benihana or Osaka (in Minneapolis). Typically, smaller restaurants focus more on the taste of the food so I was surprised that a national chain would be better. With that said, they were very family friendly and the kids loved the onion volcano.

    Good food but something happened to the service. They just don't care anymore. This was our second visit (3 years ago) and we had a great experience. We were looking forward to a nice evening but the service was so bad it ruined the night. We're looking for a replacement sushi restaurant in this area.

    This is a Japanese hibachi restaurant yet the last two times we dined here, they did not have enough chefs to accommodate all of their tables. We had to wait 30 minutes after being seated for the chef to come cook for us without being notified. If we had been told before being seated, we would have left.

    The food was typical for a hibachi style dining. Sushi was quite limited to the traditional American fare. Nothing too unique. It was a relief to see the seafood that was offered at the grill to be a little varied however. The yellowtail was cooked perfectly. Overall, it is a typical hibachi restaurant on par for most restaurants of this type.

    waited forever to get in even though we made a reservation, nobody at the front to greet us and we were seated far at the back near the kitchen. the restaurant is annoyingly noisey and the services is slow and unfriendly. The sushi was ok...we've been to a lot of sushi places and for what this restaurant shows in it's menu and what they actual serve is two different things. definitely would not return

    So it was OK. Not bad, not great. I had a sushi selection and was not too impressed. I eat sushi alot, so I have a high bar. I ordered a dragon roll and did not like it that much. It had too much cream cheese, and a very sweet sauce. Also, not enough fish content. It was probably twice as high calorie as the dragon rolls I am accustomed to. I had hamachi which was not the best cut and so was not as tasty as I would like. On the other hand, my husband ordered yaki soba (noodle soup) and found it to be very good quality and very tasty. He would go back. I would not (for sushi). The ambiance was OK - its in a strip mall but it is beside Thai Thani which is the best Thai around, so I expected better, I guess.

    Oishi is one of the best value for money restaurants in Orlando. I recommend the hibachi tables and the combos. Food is perfectly cooked in front of you and the chefs go out of their way to make it entertaining. They juggle the spatulas make volcanos etc. Really a fun evening. The food quality is excellent. Every thing is fresh and cooked right in front of you to your liking. A must to visitors in Orlando if you like Japanese/ teppanyaki/hibachi style food.

    The food was very good. If you like sushi, this is a great place to visit. However, don't expect good service. We never saw our server after she took our order. A different server finally came with the bill. My drink was empty for at least 30 minutes and I was not offered another drink my anyone. There was no one in the restaurant except maybe 3 other tables so there was no excuse for the abysmal service.

    Thought this place was just average. Been to a lot of Hibachi places around the country, and was hoping to have found something special based on the reviews. This place ranked about average, not bad but nothing great. It's located in a remote little strip mall. Staff was friendly, and had fun at the table they placed us at. Prices were reasonable. Not a place I'd have to eat at again.

    Oishi is in a non-descript strip mall, but don't let that fool you. This is a GREAT teppenyaki experience! We had at least 4 servers assisting with our meal, with all acting as one. Appetizers were unique and tasty. The chefs knife twirling was really entertaining I've seen many of the same in the past - this was not. The teppen sides were fresh and tasty. Food was expertly cooked and prepared. This is a great experience for couples, families, and friends alike.

    The food was great and the service was attentive. The only thing that I didn't like was the tip jar blatantly shown on the table for the teppanyaki chef. I have dined in many teppanyaki style japanese restaurant and this is the first time I have been shown a tip jar for the chef. I have often assumed that the tip is shared by the chef and waitstaff.
