Oishii Sushi expects to open a new location by July 10 at 8448 Parkwood Blvd., Ste. 700, Plano. The restaurant serves sushi and pan-Asian cuisine, including sashimi, maki rolls and specialty dishes.

This is the restaurant’s fourth location and its first outside of Dallas. Fabian Hernandez, the general manager for the Wycliff Avenue location, said the owner of the 18-year-old business decided to open in Plano after repeated requests from customers.

“We have so many people from Plano, Frisco and Allen who drive down on a regular basis who say ‘please come [farther north],’” Hernandez said. “So, after opening on SMU [Boulevard], [Plano] was naturally the first place we wanted to go.”

Along with classic sushi and sashimi options, Oishii offers 25 signature rolls, some of which are riceless. Hernandez said first-time diners should try the Thanh Scallop, the Caesar, the Royce and the Tribeca rolls.

“They’re just really light,” Hernandez said of Oishii’s sushi rolls. “Hearty but still light.”

Originally hailing from Vietnam, he graduated high school from Plano East Senior High in 1995 before earning his bachelor’s degree at The University of Texas at Dallas in Richardson in 2001.
