    Honestly it is very difficult to explain what this place is missing. It has everything...a good environment, service and food. It's just that the food here is very very good but not perfect. If you have a good omakase at a good Sushiya, you can feel & taste the very fine and detailed effort the the team has put in. Sushi taste comes from all the effort they make behind the scene. Here you can't feel it. They rely on a very good ingredient (and they have it) but that's about it. It misses the final touch that makes the difference between good and perfect. Shari (rice) are dull & thick and do not have sufficient variation by different neta. Neta are not refined enough and gives a feel of middle class sushiya at best. Look, this is a great place for a sushi and better than 99% of all sushi places in Shanghai but if they want to claim the best and charge RMB 1500 per person, then better make effort to make 99% to 100%. If you think I'm asking a too much or an irrational request, then visit any suhiya at Japan/Korea or Aoki in Shanghai which has lower/same price with this place.

    I'm not a massive Sushi fan unless it's this good. An evening with the friendly host Oyama san listening to his explanation of each dish and kindly showing us how it should be eaten. I have eaten great Sushi in Tokyo and this was right up there.
    An unforgettable evening and definitely worth the price when it's this good. Will return.
    Excellent sushi - even by Japan standards

    First, my friends and comrades know that I am a Japanese food snob. Haiku? You're joking. Teppanyaki? Sorry I left my juggling spatulas at Benihana. All-you-can-eat? No thanks - I graduated from college a few years ago. The previous review of this restaurant? Welcome to a Japanese sushiya-san my amateur friend.

    I had avoided this exactly because of the hype. The type of hype from people who vote Element Fresh "Best American Food" in the city magazines. I was wrong though - Sushi Oyama is without a doubt the best sushi in Shanghai - in fact it could easily rank with any top sushiya-san in Japan.

    Served "omakase" or chef's choice, you can tell them if you have any allergies or dislikes. The tables are served slightly different food than the counter. The counter is sushi/sashimi only, while the tables have other non-fish items as well (we ate at the counter, so I cannot go into that detail).

    The quality of the food and preparation is meticulous. Scallops that melt in your mouth (from Hokkaido), a wide assortment of fish that not was delicious, but matched our wine perfectly. All prepared by the gregarious Oyama san, who enjoyed a few rounds of reikan (cold sake) with us.

    Truly an excellent experience - not cheap but absolutely worth it. In a town full of mediocre Japanese food, this is a beacon of hope. We'll be back, very soon!
