Before sushi rolls, chefs experimented with different ways for seaweed to transport fresh fish into mouths, resulting in the short-lived origami seaweed airplane and seaweed catapult. Enjoy fresh fish easily with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Japanese fare and drinks at Oishi Restaurant.

Oishi Restaurant's skilled and entertaining chefs plate up an alluring array of traditional dishes, modern rolls, and charismatically grilled hibachi feasts. Diners can begin a jaunt down the menu with a selection of sushi and sashimi basic and specialty rolls ($2–$12) or prepare tongues for annual lava-eating competitions by pairing hot sake with the volcano roll ($12), which spins a spicy ensemble of eel and avocado. For an authentic Japanese summer repast, Oishi's chefs encourage sipping imported cold sake while slurping traditional chilled tenzaru noodles peppered with shrimp tempura, zaru sauce, wasabi, scallions, and daikon ($14). Artful grill masters wow clusters of diners and impressionable chopsticks at the hibachi grill by slicing and dicing quality meats and fresh seafood from Florida waters and Japanese seas before decorating plates with steak sirloin or tenderloin ($20), tofu steak ($11), and lobster steak ($26).

Oishi Restaurant's 4,000-square-foot dining room boasts modern ornaments imported from Japan and nearby countries, and eastern melodies or extended laugh tracks echo off the bamboo-accented ceilings.

Oishi Japanese Restaurant

Both Oishi Japanese Restaurant's locations showcase Asian-inspired décor, from the ceiling covered in bamboo accents to the marble-topped sushi bar framed by a glass case of seafood. Chefs entertain lunch and dinner diners with "fire shows" at hibachi grills where they sear vegetables, seafood, meat, and wrinkled shirts. Diners also cozy up to unfinished wood tables and booths as servers deliver spreads of Japanese steakhouse cuisine, fresh sushi rolls, and desserts.

Great food & excellent service!

I took my grandson for his birthday. It was the best and freshest I ever ate. Wonderful.

From the moment we walked it we loved it. Salud, the bartender, can make the perfect Long Island Ice Tea. The waitress was cordial, helpful and with a great attitude. The chef's grill presentation was phenomenal. Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon. We will definitely be back when we see ourselves in the Tampa area.
