About

This restaurant is permanently closed.

Oysy Sushi is a sleek and elegant sushi bar where guests can create great memories with friends or a significant other. A trendy spot located on the south loop of Chicago, Oysy Sushi offers delicious cocktails and sushi. Our most popular roll is the Rainbow Dragon which has shrimp tempura and cucumber inside and topped with salmon, tuna, super white tuna, eel, ebi, spicy mayo as well as different tobiko. Summer is another amazing roll worth mentioning. Other dishes worth recommending are the deep fried rock shrimp in spicy golden sauce and the stir fried octopus in homemade hot sauce.

Izagaya in Japanese means traditional food in a relaxed atmosphere and Oysy Sushi is the ideal example of this concept. Offering dishes from the traditional to the exotic, Oysy Sushi provides lunch specials at reasonable prices. Portions are large enough to share so groups can sample many dishes. Online ordering makes it convenient to enjoy the tastes of Japan anywhere.

Our visit to Oysy was very good. We enjoyed the food. The service was excellent and fast-almost too fast. We arrived at 6:20pm and we left by 7:00pm. 40 minutes! Only negative is that I don’t think I’ve received my 100 Open Table points for this visit. It was still great though!

GREAT SUSHI! But do not order soup, appetizer and sushi all at once as it comes too quickly. It is not spaced out at all. We got our hot appetizer 3 minutes after our hot miso soup. Then the sushi came out shortly after. We felt rushed to each it all. Otherwise, GREAT SUSHI!

food was great - but service was lacking. Server forgot to place one order for my son, and he had to wait much longer than expected for a couple of rolls. Even after the long wait the staff didn't acknowledge the error and charged us full price for the rolls. Would have expected those to be comp'ed.

It was a birthday lunch for one of our office staff. The food was very slow to begin with and no one came to greet us till 10 minutes after we seated. Few items we ordered on the menu was out. Sushi was decent but nothing special. One of the chef at sushi bar was eating and that looked so not presentable. In the end they forgot the birthday desert. Not planning to go back again.
It’s ok for everyday casual quick meal. Definitely not for special occasion or foodies.

Everthing apart from the sushi from oyshy sushi was good. The rice under the sushi didnt have a sense of attachment to the piece of fish. The rice seemed overcooked for sushi and was not seasoned at all. I would not go back there.

We visited Oysy Sushi while in town for my brother-in-law's birthday over Labor Day and were very happy with the experience. We had reservations for 7:30 and were greeted and seated with no waiting. Our server arrived quickly and was attentive but not hovering throughout dinner. Although the server misunderstood my order and initially brought a sushi platter, she apologized and quickly replaced it with the sashimi platter.

The sushi and sashimi platters were large, with a nice mix of salmon, tuna, snapper, yellowtail, escolar, and octopus, as well as a fresh array of shredded carrots, radish, and beets. We also ordered the seaweed and cucumber salad, which was fresh and nicely seasoned, and was large enough to share among the four of us. Would definitely recommend Oysy for anyone looking for fresh sushi at a good price in a clean and friendly environment.

We went to oysy based on the reviews and pics we saw on yelp- food was decent, presentation was not up to par - the dragon rolls’ eyes were laying on the plate not on the dragon itself- this was part of the experience we came for with our little one- restaurant was extremely loud, we could not hear our server. Server never smiled and was direct and to the point. Overall did not enjoy our experience here.
