Very poor customer service – Tonight was my first and last visit to Oishii. My husband and I called ahead of time tonight to ask if they would accept a gift certificate we received for Christmas for Oishii at Timberlyne in Chapel Hill. We didn't know if they were the same restaurant or not. The owner said she would and took our reservation. When the bill came we gave our gift certificate and what it didn't cover. Our waiter came back and said that the gift certificate was not there's. I told him we called ahead of time and the owner said she would accept it. He went and asked her if she would take it and she said no. We tried to stand our ground but she refused saying we didn't say Oishii at Timberlyne when we called. Of course we did or why would we have called in the first place? She said if we didn't pay she would call the police! Seriously! I guess she's never heard the customer is always right.
Honestly, and not because of this experience, the food was not that great and they were out of the Sake my husband wanted with his dinner.
Great food at reasonable prices! – Based on the reviews here my wife and I decided to try it for our 4th anniversary. We were very pleased with everything! The service was great and the food was delicious. I had the lamb chops and she had the Walnut glazed shrimp. We both had perfectly mixed cocktails and the desert was equally delicious. We will definitely be dining here again soon! We are very happy to have found something so good so close to our house!
Excellent Experience, Highly Recommend!!!! – Oishii is undoubtedly one of the best restaurants that I have ever visited. I travel often for business to different cities across the states which results in eating out often. Every aspect of my experience here was perfect. To begin with, the ambiance within the restaurant was relaxing and comforting. The interior decorations were well matched with a beautiful bar in the front of the restaurant. Their service was very professional, friendly waitstaff ready to please. They had live music performance as well on the piano which I especially enjoyed, really sets a restaurant apart from some of the other ones out there.
We started the evening at the bar for a few drinks to chat a bit. The bartender was very friendly and prepared well mixed drinks. After a few drinks we migrated to the tables (again very friendly waitstaff, they offered to carry our drinks to our table). Next the food was amazing, I had the Thai Style Mussels for an appetizer with the Filet Mignon as the entree. Both were delicious and cooked to perfection. The 3 other clients (who are locals to the area) were all extremely pleased as well with their dinners. The bottle of Merlot that we ordered was right on, very reasonably priced and was a good complement to our entrees. I personally did not order desert because I was stuffed with their generous portions, however I immediately regretted when I saw the deserts come out for my clients haha. Towards the end of our meal, the manager of the restaurant (I believe named Frank) personally came to our table to make sure we were having a pleasant evening. He even offered everyone at the table a complementary glass of port!
Being a New Yorker and having experienced all your "trendy, upscale" restaurants, I am still impressed by this hidden gem. The value is unmatched. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, you must try at least once to know what I am talking about. I will be flying back in a few month and will be sure to visit again!!
Freshest sushi, unique varied menu, excellent prices, owners and wait staff offer great customer service! – My wife and I have eaten here five times now. The food is always fantastic. We've tried just about everything on the menu and have not been disapointed. The sushi is always very fresh and they serve nice sized portions. I especially enjoyed their lamp chops. Last night I had grouper in chili sauce and it was unbelievable. We recently had a graduation dinner for my daughter with 10 people in attendance. The service was very attentative and all the dishes we ordered were out of this world. They have a wide variety menu, so everyone was able to get something diffferent. One thing I love about this place are the owners and the staff. They really make you feel like guests in their home. Just very freindly and Aaways appreciative of your business. The decor in the resturant is also stunning. Lots of tile and marble. A very nice bar, nice lighting and always impeccably clean. I travel for a living and eat out at least 20 times a month. I think I'm a good judge of great resturants and this one is a keeper. You won't be disapointed.
Disappointing service – Last week was our 5th visit to Oishii, and we wanted to share our new found secret with friends. Our evening didn't go as well as expected. Let me begin by saying the food has always been and continues to be great. However, when the service is slow or non-existent and you have a total tab of approx. $320, we will be hard-pressed to return. There are many other establishments that would welcome our money. We had to repeatedly go find the hostess or server to refill water glasses, take our order or simply stop by the table to see if everything was OK. To the management, if you ignore your clientelle, your clientelle will ignore you.
Great food, great service, great music and a great time! – Wonderfully varied menu with an Asian flair. Separate room works really well for private parties and the restaurant team is willing to customize menus to suit customers' needs. We just had a graduation party for our daughter with 38 guests and everyone raved about the food, service and a few "sushi" zealots said it was the best sushi they've eaten. Ask for Susan, she's great!
Editorial Review – Situated next to a lush golf course, japanese spot serves up sushi and other traditional delights.
Oishii LP – The duck entree was superbly prepared and just the perfect size entree to enjoy with an appetizer of scallops wrapped with Prosciutto on butternut squash square. This suggestion by the staff of duck or salmon was dead on.
However, if you?re interest is wine and you let CANDES deter you, then you?re missing an experience in presentation and preparation. Even the suggestion by the staff of the triple mousse with the Zin wine was a perfect pairing. Well worth an evening with your loved one. I?m bringing my friends, you should too.
Nice, quiet place... but not so positive first time experience – Overall, the restaurant was very low key and pleasing; however, the wine you pay for is not what you get. Be careful, the year on the wine bottles are years later than the actual listing on the wine menu- and you still pay the 2002 price for a 2005 bottle....a common, but very unprofessional trick some restaurants use. Though the food was good, and should be given its expensive price, the experience with the wine really let my feeling for the place down.
Fantastic lunch place! – Oishii is such a great value, especially for lunch! Service is always prompt and polite, free iced tea, and a generous amount of food for the money. The sushi is excellent, as are the hot entrees. We especially enjoyed the Bento Box, with a little of everything. Every time I eat there, I am impressed.
