Welcome to Oishii – the only Asian restaurant in a winery.
Located at the Tempus Two winery, in the heart of the Hunter Valley, it has become a favourite for locals and visitors alike. Whether dining inside the minimalist Asian themed dining hall or on the outside undercover terrace overlooking the vines and an architecturally designed amphitheatre, Oishii has become a “must dining experience”. The fast take away options are delicious. We are open 7 days for lunch and dinner and hope to welcome you soon.

Bo arrived from Phuket, Thailand in 1992 to visit her sister in Newcastle and instantly falls in love with Australia. Soon an Australian investor discovered her talent to look after restaurant patrons and offered her a partnership to open the first Aloy Thai restaurant in Darby St., Newcastle. The restaurant became popular overnight and won many industry awards in the following years. The success led to create Aloy Thai franchise restaurants in Terrigal, Nelson Bay and Swansey.
In 2000 she opened her first Japanese restaurant in Hunter St., Newcastle. Her Sushi service became a hit and led to be invited to concert catering at Whydam Estate where she met the owners of Tempus Two in the Hunter Valley. They offered her and her investor to open the first and only Asian restaurant in the valley. While contemplating if it should be a Thai or Japanese restaurant they decided to do both to be on the safe side. In order to focus on the new venture they sold all restaurants to family members. Or franchisees.
In 2005 she met Wolfgang Grimm AM and they acquired the business and created a family owned and operated restaurant together with their son Patrick.
