Love Your Local: Oishii Sushi Bar

  • Food & Booze
For those of you who have ventured out to Sunnybank, you will know that it is well and truly the mecca for Asian cuisine. Often when I mention Sunnybank, people immediately think Market Square, where unless you drive a Mazda 121, the chances of snagging yourself a car park are near impossible. But, keep on trucking down the road for 5 minutes and you will stumble across a hidden gem perched between a series of thriving restaurants: Oishii Sushi Bar. Serving contemporary style sushi at an incredibly affordable price, this is a great place for students and a favourite amongst the locals. The busy atmosphere can often make it difficult to find a seat, but the speedy service ensures that you are never left waiting long. Start off with a steaming bowl of Miso Soup, then tempt your tastebuds with anything from the classic Prawn Tempura Delight to the Unagi Don – Grilled Eel on rice with Teriyaki Sauce -if you’re feeling a little adventurous. A personal favourite is the Spider Roll: tempura soft-shell crab, rolled with kani-tama (Japanese fishcake and egg) salad and cucumber, covered with tobiko (flying fish roe). If Sashimi is more you thing, you can’t go past the Deluxe Sashimi plate with fresh fillets of salmon, tuna, prawn, squid, and scallops. Expect a treat for the eyes too – the chefs here are renowned for their impeccable knife skills and delicate presentation. Topping off an already great venue, Oishii is also BYO, making it the perfect place to catch up with friends and enjoy a cheeky tipple. You’re guaranteed to walk away satisfied and with a smile on your face. Oishii translates to “delicious” in Japanese and boy they are not wrong!
