About ten years ago, catering to changing Italian tastes, most of the Chinese restaurants around Milan converted to Japanese food. Understandable, because the Chinese cuisine they offered was frighteningly reminiscent of the stuff served in the States or the UK 30 years ago, before Szechuan, Hunan or Dim Sum: the same 6 dishes, the same 2 sauces, everything tailored to Western taste(?) like Chop Suey, Almond Chicken, Sweet and Sour deep-fried something, incredibly overcooked vegetables. The places offering decent Chinese food were/are few and far-between, no wonder that the Italian public rebelled. Now, Sushi restaurants and "Fusion" restaurants can be found everywhere, although the combination of raw fish and Chinese restaurant hygiene is not always the most reassuring. However, many are OK, I've got a strong stomach and love Japanese food anyway. Many of the converted restaurants are basically still Chinese under a thin Japanese veneer. One example: if you order "Gyoza" you get Chinese pork dumplings...
Oishi Sushi is Chinese owned, but there is a level of care that I haven't found yet in the other Japanese restaurants in the Hinterland: many more authentic dishes (machi balls!) udon, soba, etc. The fresh ingredients are high-quality, and both the sushi and the kitchen chefs are excellent - there's an Italian restaurant down the street - "El Guss" - that could definitely take lessons from their fry-chef! Not super cheap, but definitely worth it, and if you don't want to spend much, the lunch menu is cheap, abundant and varied. Recommended!
