“Best Sushi, Sake, and Staff in NWAR.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This place is hands down the only place to dine for sushi in Northwest Arkansas. Everything is always fresh. They feature fish & oyster selections not offered anywhere else. The menu sports all kinds of unique creations that really separate them from all the other wanna-be's.
Personal Fav's: Spicy Crab Salad, Smoked Salmon Nigiri (be sure to ask for the fresh wasabi, this is not that green paste everyone else pawns off), Smoked Cash roll, Daikon roll, fried rice (1000 times better than competitors), Seafood Champone (soup only offered on special dates), all of the oysters (none of that Gulf junk, they import theirs), the sake menu has dozens of options, the Japanese whisky is as smooth as green label johnny walker, and the wasabi bloody Mary's are a house special (they even stuff their own olives).
The staff are all top notch and reflect the mastery that Darwin (the owner) demands of anything his name is attached to.

“Shut your face hole and fill it with awesome sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I know the owner/sushi chef and his restaurant quite possibly serves the best sushi inland that you can ever possibly get in Arkansas. Try the Super White at any and all costs! Also, the crab seaweed salad is freaking amazing. Basically, anything you order is going to be awesome sauce.

“Put the computer/phone down and get here now.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is THE place to get sushi in a 500 mile radius. From the FRESH wasabi (oh yeah fresh, not that paste cheap substitue) to the spicy crab seaweed salad, everything on the menu will make you glad you came. The atmosphere is unbeatable, the staff is top notch. You want Uni...yeah they can get it. The Super White will make you got to you old sushi place and deliver a solid open handed slap to your OLD chef's face.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Meiji is consistently good and has some items you cant find in other restaurants. The specials are always fresh and creative. The sushi chefs are the best in town. I enjoy taking people here because they are always impressed with the food.

“Delicious food, slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I really enjoy the sushi here. They are always consistent. Food is fresh and delicious. Portion sizes are great. The only issue I have with Meiji is the service is painfully slow. I no longer dine in unless i have plenty of time. My last dine in experience there took a little over an hour for delivery if my entree. Even basic rolls ordered for take out have required 45-60 minutes on my last 2 visits. Absolutely delicious though.
