Oishii - Closed

2525 Wycliff Ave. Dallas, TX 75219 | Uptown & Oak Lawn | 214-599-9448

Location Description:

While this Oak Lawn restaurant is most popular for its sushi -- especially its specialty rolls like the namesake offering with soft-shell crab, avocado wrapped with chopped snow crab, wasabi cream and Sriracha sauce -- the kitchen puts out all manner of pan-Asian all-star fare. These include crab Rangoon, satays and hot pots, an Eastern classic akin to everything-but-the-sink tableside gumbo. The latter is a signature dish. But, again, the sushi, as fresh as a teenage boy trying to steal a kiss from his schoolyard crush, is what retains regulars. Traditional nigiri, like unagi, tobiko and maguro, comes in pairs. The maki rolls vary in size (between six to eight segments). However, the standards are well represented in a restaurant that makes abundant use of rich wood reminiscent of Japan.
