Cho Oishi Ratings and Reviews
Waitress was very nice but service was slow. Space is large and good for groups. Don't eat Sushi, so I can't judge quality or price of that. I had beef teriyaki. Based on description thought it was going to be a steak, but it was sliced, small pieces of beef.
Was disappointed in this restaurant's food. Great location but miso soup came out lukewarm and the overall presentation was not very appetizing. Flavor was so-so and just not something I'd want again. Tables were sticky and chairs rocked back and forth so seemed unstable. Will not be back.
We had made a reservation through OpenTable. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess checked a handwritten list of reservations, and could 't find ours. But, as the restaurant was relatively empty at the time, she seated us right away.
This is at best a tourist trap. As an Asian, I found the decor to be offensive - stylized attempts at "kanji" artwork on the wall. The food was meh - the sushi quality at the local supermarket is better, our tuna was slightly questionable.
They were slightly understaffed; but when they came, they were very nice. The best thing about this place is the location and proximity to the Dolby Theatre
Really bad starting at the reception desk. They claimed I did not have a reservation, even when I showed them my reminder from Open Table on my phone. I felt like I had to convince them to serve us. Most UNwelcoming. Make no mistake - I was pleasant the whole time, in spite of their ineptitude. We were then taken to the very back of the restaurant and abandoned. Had to ask for beverage service three times. It took 20 minutes to get drinks (beer and water - nothing complicated), and another 40 minutes to get food. When the food was delivered, our server was a CHILD. He could not have been more than 8 or 9 years old. An adult server accompanied him. The final insult was a big, black hair on the bottom of my sashimi plate. When I called the manager over to show her, she apologized and offered to bring a replacement dish. I had lost my appetite by that point. Our friends paid the bill, and I believe the manager gave us a discount, which hardly made up for all the nonsense. This place is in the middle of a giant tourist attraction (Hollywood & Highland). It is clear that they do not care about repeat business, and we certainly are never going back. Just awful.
The host never checked us in via Open Table even after I asked him to. This made it look I was a "no show". Sushi was merely adequate for tourists. Best part was its location inside Hollywood and Highland where the Dolby is located. Otherwise, not worth it especially in a city with so many good Japanese restaurants around.
Took my Daughter here pre-theater.
A Little hard to find, but very enjoyable.
Food was very good, very tasty but too much a'la carte
We did over order a bit but we are both Sushi Lovers and so had very little left over.
2 of us had
Seaweed Salad shared
Tofu Appetiser shared
4 full rolls shared
DID NOT have room for dessert.
We picked apart 3 last slices of rolls, but were just doing it for the taste, not hunger
Less than $100 with tax. Tip was extra.
RIGHT in compleX of theater so a short walk settled tummies
This place was Great. Im from out of town visiting family and happened to see this place on Open Table.
I went and tried something new, which was Shabu Shabu. One of the best experiences I've had. The food, service and general experience was fantastic.
I hope it remains so if you follow this review.
I'm so pleased to have a restaurant that again serves Shabu Shabu. While I haven't tried anything but that dish, the rest of the menu is extensive and looks very appetizing. There are Sushi chefs behind the huge bar who greet all as they enter. The staff provide a warm and comfortable dining experience.
