A word from Oishi Thai
Born in Chiang Rai, Thailand, Executive Chef Piyarat Arreeratn a.k.a. Bee moved to the United States to broaden his culinary skills. Chef Bee worked for Nobu Matsuhisa at Nobu Miami Beach in the Shore Club with many great chefs well trained by Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. Chef Bee also worked with talented local Chef Kevin Cory of NAOE. Thoroughly imbued by this discipline, Bee found the confidence to tackle his first experience as an Executive Chef at Oishi Thai in North Miami Beach year 2005. This was following a memorable experience at the eternally posh Nobu in South Beach. More information coming soon.

    (3.5 stars) The sushi is absolutely top notch. Some of the freshest I've ever had in South Florida by far. Yes it was very pricey, typically about double what you'd pay in a neighborhood joint, but the quality is without compare. Definitely worth treating yourself. Unfortunately the Thai dishes and appetizers were barely tolerable. Just so "meh", not even up to neighborhood 'burb Thai joints. Very disappointing. The gyoza were stale and old-tasting, the rock shrimp were plentiful but the sauce had no flavor. Even the hamachi jalapeno appetizer had great fish but not much else. The massaman curry was just ... boring. The design is polished and the soundtrack cool but unobtrusive. A welcome relief from "hip" places blaring EDM!

    Authentic, consistant, warm and welcoming. As we land from up north, we immediately head to our favorite Thai restaurant. Not only are the menu items incredibly wonderful, a fantastic selection, but Chef B accomodates our requests for specific Thai dishes not on the menu. He tailors the dish according to our diet (for us hold the sugar, increase the heat). Oishi Thai is not only a place for great Thai but this is the place to go for the freshest sushi you'll find !

  • Bubblegum sushi!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 11/30/2013
    Never had chewy sushi before!! We eat sushi at least once a week. The nori in the sushi was so chewy that you could not even swallow it. We called over the server, who feigned ignorance by not understanding English. We then spoke to the chef who said that the warm rice softened the nori which made it chewy!!! We had ordered a second roll which they said would be made without nori, but what we received was a huge glob of rice with a small spot of yam tempura for $9.95. Normally less than five dollars at other restaurants.. Other restaurants would have adjusted the check to compensate for the fact that we couldn't eat either sushi. We had been loyal patrons but would not return here again. Poor service,expensive,and in edible food!

    M husband & I have been coming to Oishi since they opened. It is our 'go to' sushi/thai favorite! The lunch specials are a terrific value. My husband usually orders the Chicken w/ basil sauce or the Pad Thai. I usually order a la carte from the menu: salmon and anago sushi or various rolls and the sautéed japanese vegetable plate. Other excellent dishes are some that the chef has created: his special ceviches and fish carpaccios as well as the miso cod. In addition to the food, the restaurant's interior is lovely and comfortable and the staff delightful. The chef/owner was previously at Nobu and brought his skill and resources uptown. A huge thank you for that! You can't go wrong here.

    Knowing Chef Bee developed menu & dishes at Khong River House, I searched for his restaurant in N. Miami, owned prior to bringing KRH to a James Beard nomination in just a yr! I read that he parted ways & has returned full-time to Oushi Thai, never to be compromised for quality & style! I am thrilled to have dined here!. Welcome is warm, genuine, like dining w/ an old friend. Food quality top knotch-whether sushi, Japanese or Thai. He buys fresh each day- hands on & the food is just superb! He recommended Fried Bok Choi-OMG!, made a special seafood Pad Thai, outstanding! His mom in directly in from Thailand, is cooking w/ him. They made a delicious tomato grd. pork dish. Everything made to order. it does not get any better than this!

    Welcomed. From the minute you walk in and are greeted by the hostess, this family run gem makes you feel special. Once seated you are greeted by a true culinary talent, Chef Bee. As he introduces himself you can already feel the energy and passion he has for his food. Throughout the meal he checks in with nearly everyone in the restaurant who all appear to be repeat customers or soon to be. And then there is the food. Impeccable presentation as each dish is more beautiful than the next. The layering of flavor from coconut to kaffir lime to five spice takes you on a journey to his homeland. The quality of ingredients is better than any you find in SoFL. This is one place you want to return again, and again.

Many of the sakes on the menu were out... Overall Enjoyed the food but felt like I payed fine dinning prices without the fine dinning experience.

    Oishi Thai delivers one every level. Their food and service are consistently excellent one every visit, and I've had many since their opening a few years ago. They offer a great menu of Thai and Japanese selections. Their sushi bar produces the freshest and best tasting varieties in the North Miami/Aventura/Bal Harbour area. Each member of their restuarant team makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in...and the servers are attentive without smothering you...just a friendly staff. I even love the decor, with gracefully curved cork covered walls and high ceilings that absorb any excessive noise but make you feel like you're in a vibrant dining place. Lastly, they provide great value as their menu prices are reasonable.

    Good and affordable Thai food. Found the restaurant too cold with the air conditioning and the music was thumping lounge style, which didn't mix with the atmosphere. Also thought there was too much on the menu, everything from mashed potatoes to sushi. Scale back the meu and improve the service would be my recommendations. Food very good, but decor and service are lacking.

    Excellent food and atmosphere. We pass several other Thai restaurants to eat at Oishi Thai and are never disappointed. Only bloth on their record was the attitude of the hostess. We booked a table for 4 and actually had 5 as I forgot to include my 6 year old, who usually sits between us anyway at a table for 4. The hostess seemed bothered that we had one more than indicated on the reservation. She put us at a booth and we politely asked her if we could get a table that was a little more private and off the beaten path and she said she couldn't. There was nobody else eating inside the entire restaurant. Every table was vacant, yet the table she sat us at was our only option! Everybody super-friendly - except this hostess.
