Best of Boston

2000 Best Sushi


The name means “delicious,” and the food delivers on the promise at this new addition to Boston’s sushi scene. (Move over, Ginza.) Hidden away off Route 9 in Chestnut Hill, Oishii was opened by brother-in-law chefs Ting San and Kung San, both of whom trained at New York’s raw fish temple, Nobu. On offer are generous portions of delectable fresh fish presented with great art and friendly service. Exclusivity is guaranteed: Oishii seats only 12. However, if you’re willing to drive to Sudbury, it has already spawned a somewhat bigger branch.
