The "Gratuidy" standard is a bit strange. Me and my family went there to only find a tip added on to our paycheck keep in mind two adults two teenagers and my two little sisters, my little sisters shared a plate, we usually tip at a minimum 18% at lack luster service (which we got) our waiter Ben decided his lackluster service deserved 13$ on to the check. This might seem like cajolery but I feel like me and my family. We're screwed out of 13$.

I wasnt impressed with the sushi at all. Our waitress was new with no help she didn't know what pinot grigio was she didn't know anything about the menu for the food. I really felt bad for her

Robert DeButcher

Definitely a delicious place to eat sushi. Great and comfortable environment. The staff is great and friendly. The soup (forgot what's it called) is great. It started with a M.

Wayne Polk

Great Habatchi dishes. Service was awesome and the environment was an unexpected pleasure. The desserts are not typical for Asian cuisine , but they are awesome!

Takisha Hall

Steve Mizzell

Good enough for Pelll City

melissa collins

I loved the decor and the service was great but, the food was just ok. We had some maki rolls, nigiri and soup and ginger salad. The rolls were ok. Not the best but not terrible. The miso soup had no miso in it. The ginger salad was good. Everything was just average. I really wanted to love it since its the only Japanese restaurant within 30 miles of our home.

TURN OFF THE DAMN MUSIC?! Who ever decided to play music at a restaurant, especially at that volume is a imbecile oh and who ever picked it is a sadist. That being said they would have a higher rating except for the above mentioned, the sushi chef is a gifted artist and ingredients have always been fresh and food is good.

Chesley Crain

Sushi was great! Server friendly and attentive.

Lala Jamison

Ordered 3 meals and only 2 came out and my wife had to wait another 20 mins just for her food. Their friend rice isn't really fried either just white rice with soy sauce. Mediocre compared with other Japanese style restaurant s. I won't come back for another 3 months to see if it gets better.

Arthur Cranston

Very good

Amanda Barnes

james willis

Incredible food. We have never left disappointed and it’s well worth the extra cost.

David Wyatt

I only get to go orders. On google maps there is a website to place your order and it has the complete menu. Sadly it doesn't have pictures. A lot of the foods I have had to Google to see them (I will upload pics next time). The Hibachi menu is where you want to order from; good steak and awesome shrimp. The same as Fuji where they cook it in front of you. The steak is sometimes a little dry (use the teriyaki dipping sauce). The rice is ok but with their delicious yum yum sauce it comes alive. They offer well priced Bento box dinners and lunches. You get your choice of meat, vegetables, rice, california roll (4) or Gyoza (2), soup, and salad. Really convenient for on the go. It is a large metal tray with all of your food in separate compartments. A lot better and easier than them shoving all this food into a styrofoam to go box. For sushi you must try the spicy crab hand roll, it's not too spicy and doesn't have a bad raw fish taste. For appetizer you need to try the steak maki. It is sliced steak cooked with teriyaki sauce rolled around scallops; a must! This is a Japanese steak house that also offers Chinese food. I wouldn't suggest the Chinese dishes. Even the egg drop soup is not what we are used to here. The onion soup is the best. This is an edit from my first review in which I give it three stars only because of the steak and rice but I have eaten here about 7 times now and it is far better than my first visit. It would be a shame to only eat here once. While waiting I sat at the sushi bar and looked over the vast sushi menu and watched the chef do his magic with his authentic bamboo roll. I was in awe at the many offerings they had. Sadly, I was too overwhelmed and didn’t have time to sit there and try the plethora of sushi (don't forget the spicy crab roll). I will continue to go back!

Amanda Conaway

The food and beverage is excellent! Atmosphere is comfy too. Live music every Wednesday. The food portions are on the small size for the prices though.

Amanda Jo Wright

Great food but hibachi probably not the best thing to order to go

Fabulous! The sushi was amazing, we had great service, and you can get takeout too. My dad got probably a whole bag's worth of chicken when he ordered the sesame chicken, and it was only 10 bucks. Would recommend! Our server Lynn was very sweet.

Madison Allen

Food was good and it was enough for 2 meals. Well priced also!! My husband and I will be back. The atmosphere was good and the waiter was attentive.

Scott Highland

Excellent! Second visit and will be back.

J.D. Barnes

I will be honest. I wasn't expecting too much when I arrived at this restaurant with some friends. It isn't anything special as far as atmosphere is concerned -- maybe clean and simple? My food was very good. I had the salmon hibachi and it was a nice sized portion. The hot and sour soup was tasty. Spicy enough but not overwhelming. Yum yum sauce made the rice. The service was friendly, albeit maybe a little inexperienced, and the price was very affordable.

Travis Smith

Everything about the place was great. Some of the best sushi around.

David Paulitzky

Good, fresh Chinese/Japanese cuisine.

Jason Lane

Great food and great service.

Natalia Bastian

Their sushi is always so good and their fortune cookies are delicious! Their food has always been amazing and I've never had a complaint. When you order out it always goes super quickly. The only bad thing is that the decor is kind of lacking.

Murray Fuller

Wasn't that good compared to other steakhouses I've been to

terminatorgogi sweatt

Shaun Smith

Great service, clean and polite. Food is great, nice change from the norm.

M McNally

Unbelievably fantastic sashimi. I'm not an expert but I've had sashimi at restaurants around the US and in Japan...Oishi's beats them all. Best I've ever had, exceedingly fresh. Have had other menu items, all are great and seaweed salad is again probably the best I've had. Only menu item I don't care for is the ginger salad, dressing isn't very tasty. Otherwise would give 6 stars if possible...

Shelton Morrow

Good food and service,good atmosphere

Rebecca Johnson

I try 2 new sushi rolls every time I go, they are delicious, love the sake, too!

William Stallings

This is a great place to get some great food

Amber Wilson

We had a great date night here. The atmosphere was great, everyone was friendly. I didn't have to ask for anything or wait long at all. The hot and sour soup was good (it's my favorite so I'm pretty critical and often underwhelmed). We had the hibachi chicken and sweet and sour chicken. Both exceeded our expectations and the yum yum sauce is just that.

Cameron Nelson

Great food for a good price and friendly service.

Cheryl Dawley

My husband felt the food could be spicier (he had General T'So's Chicken), but I loved my meal. The raw salmon roll was amazing! Soup, salad and crab rangoons were awesome and the service was great. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Randall Warren

Great food and atmosphere!!!


Service was fast and food was delicious!

Trishella Delks

This is our second time going and I love it

David Norris

Awesome sushi!

Brian Parton

I was happy to find this place so I can get some pretty good sushi not too far from home. It's the best sushi I've had anywhere nearby without going into Birmingham. Prices were reasonable, and the sushi I had was really good for the price point. I'll definitely be back. I went during lunch and the place was busy, but the food came rather quickly.

Janet Marie Coshatt

One of THE BEST local restaurants in Pell City for dining in or pick up! It's an enjoyable space with always pleasant service to have beers or delicious mixed drinks in, and of course, the comforting food staples of hibachi or noodles, miso soup, and harumaki spring rolls. And if you've never had raw fish or just want to try something new, this would be the place to do it because every item on that menu comes out tasting delicious at professional quality. Everytime I eat here, I'm making special memories with my loved ones, or I'm ordering to pick up when I'm too tired to cook a good meal. You are a gem, Oishi's, thank you!

Dean W

Great food and service..

Wayne Adams

Went for my wife and our 46 anniversary. Welcome and seating was immediate . Young lady that was our server was very nice, a big smile, and very attentive to our needs. Food was very good. A wide variety of choice for you to order from. Price appropriate for quality and choices. Cost for two with wine, sake, and tip--- $67.20 well worth the cost. We will be returning in the near future.

Wonderful sushi!

April Juliana

I have been here before and had a great experience, but today my experience was a bit different. We went out to lunch to celebrate my daughters great grades this year and met some family who lives locally. Our server was short and rushed from the beginning though we were one of two visible tables in the restaurant. The food came out a bit jumbled, like multiple peoples order on one plate, and seemed to have been ordered ala carte. I questioned the server who explained someone else rang in our order because she was busy with a large table in the back. The food was delicious, no complaints in that department at all. When the check came every item of our lunch menu order had been rang up seperatly, making the bill double what it should have been. After several tries the manager corrected the bill and apologized. I am a server myself and understand being overwhelmed at times, but as a server, if you know you overcharged your guest, own up to it and fix the check before you bring it. Had I not been expecting an error, I would have just put my card in the checkbook and paid double for what I ordered. Hopefully this was an isolated incident, but it left a sour taste in my mouth when all was said and done. Probably won't return to this establishment.

jonathan crump

Great food and plenty of it!

Perry Lemley

Great food and great service

Timothy Hendrix

Great food & portions, nice atmosphere.

Jeffrey Mckendree

Food was awesome, wait staff very courteous, not a long wait and well worth the money. Definitely a return trip in the future.

Bryan Fain

So beautifully Japanese in regards to attention to details. Friendly. So delicious. When you mention Pell City and sushi in the same sentence what comes to mind is so far below the caliber of what this place strives to be. This is not a restaurant to laugh at. My only regret is that Pell City does not serve enough Toro and Uni to keep it freshly stocked

Christian Ramsey

Really good general tso chicken

Phillip Pettis

Go on Wednesday nights when the Ronnie Melton Trio is there!!!! Great music and delicious food!!!!!!!!

Галина Николаевна Фоменко

It's good place.

Brian Wilson

Was there with friends and had awesome time... Really good food, sushi was tops .... Good place and waitress "Rita" was the best ! Will definitely be going back

Vicki Weathers

Great sushi and the waiter was very informative about the menu.
