There are surprisingly few sushi restaurants in Phuket, but if you’re looking for somewhere to eat Japanese food in Phuket, you can’t go wrong with the Oishi buffet. You pay for it, but what you get is free reign on pretty much every type of Japanese food you can imagine.
There is a fine range of sushi, sashimi, ramen and just about every form of Japanese food in between. Eat as much as you like and drink as much green tea as you can stomach.
A meal out at Oishi is a gluttonous affair, but it’s worth it if you’re a fan of sushi. Be wary that Oishi has been known to overcharge foreigners, so if you end up paying much more than 400 baht for your buffet, you could be paying over the odds.
Osihi is incredibly popular with everyone from locals to Korean tour groups, who seem to be herded in like cattle. The lunch-hour rush has to be seen to be believed.
