Struggled between the rating of very good and average on this one, taste wise is okay but the service is average, wait times are bit on the long side.

The non sushi items like the yakimeshis, curry s and gohans are above average.

With all this good s and averages its difficult to give it a wholehearted thumbs up, but if you want sushi and there is nowhere else to go this joint will do.

Came in Saturday night party of 3. It seems like there were only 2 people working there, and didn't have any sense of what customer services means...no greetings, waited about 10 minutes.. no service... had to approach them (literally walk toward the register) in order to get service... and then we had to WAIT for our dishes to come in.. One of the dishes arrived like 20 minutes later, and 5 minutes later the other 2 :(

In all fairness, the food was good! Brochettas and Salmon dish. The rolls were ok.

My partner and I had lunch at Oishi on Calle 58, 2 times in the past year. There are other chains in the city so be careful. The food was excellent. Recently, Sept of 2014, we ordered a tuna dish and a combination roll (I think #1 Oishi). We never order salmon in panama, for even though there is a free trade agreement, you still only find pink and farm raised salmon. You can't even find good frozen salmon in the grocery stores yets (no Sockeye, Coho, Chinook). Only Atlantic salmon which is mostly farm raised. The wait was worth the trip, so don't go if you are in a hurry. There are 2 other restaurants next door if you change your mind. Ample size parking lot right in front. Calle 58 is a one way street.

We were looking for a sushi restaurant and found this one but google maps points it in a diferent place that it is, so be careful or just take a taxi otherwise you may get lost like we did.
The place looks ok, the food was fair but the service was very very slow.

They have a branch in the food-court of the Multi Plaza Mall. They have a lot of sushi on the menu but very different from what we used to have in other places. Sushi in Panama tend to have mayonnaise and sesame seed so when we order, we usually request them not to put anything else. Aside from sushi, you can also try their Yakimeshi (fried rice) with vegetables or chicken or the chicken Teppanyaki which is served with vegetables and white rice. Service tends to take time so be a little patient.
