This is one of the highest quality sushi places in dallas. For the actual food, it is top tier. The service is impeccable, but it is generally a bit more casual than other places with this caliber food. Uchi and Tei-An are the other two places I have dined at that go toe-to-toe with shinsei for deliciousness, but both of... More

Great sushi and cocktails! Wonderful energy and service. Not a place to have a business meeting or romantic interlude, however, if you want a fun Saturday night with family or friends - this could be your place. There are choices for the adventurous as well as the cautious sushi lover. Make sure and acquire a reservation at prime dinner hour... More

With a variety of dietary restrictions, including vegans and gluten free, executive chef Carlos was extra accommodating for our group. The highlights at the table of 14 were the fried rice (amazing flavors), beef cheek, ribs and of course the outstanding variety of sushi. The entire serving team could not have been more attentive, especially our server Stella. In talking... More

Came here with a friend and our 2 boys. We were in town for Dallas cup soccer tournament. Came here on a recommendation. Boy were we not disappointed. Everything we eat was amazing from the rock shrimp tempura to the Brussels sprouts, short rib dumplings, pressed sushi roll and everything in between. Our server Joanne was amazing as well and...

The restaurant gave us a real Dr Who tardis moment .... It's so much bigger ( and better ) on the inside than it looks from the outside. A nice warm friendly and professional greeting on arrival and as our table was not ready we sat in the small lounge bar area, the waitress was with us and took our... More

Quite a disappointmet if you're looking for Asian fusion. Paid a brief visit and tasted a few items. It's like a dark bar with deep fried battered food. Didn't give it a huge chance to show me what they could do, but got enough of a taste to know not to go back.

I'm only giving this two stars for the food because is the service is absolutely terrible. We had a reservation for 5 and were put in a table for 4 by the bathroom. The restaurant was empty, yet we were told that this was the only table available. There was a table for 6 that was empty next to us... More

Went with another couple on a Friday night. Tons of people and very vibrant atmosphere. Tried quite a few things, and they were all very flavorful and delicious. Short ribs were great as was all the sushi. Only complaint would be they were out of two of the things on their menu we wanted to try despite one being listed... More

Ok food is not bad at all, but place is crowded and loud. Went midweek full place they do not take reservations. No place to park so I had to valet. I usually avoid when I can but in this place no way out. After an ok meal the valet could not find my keys. After 20-30 min they discovered... More

The service was great and the waiters did a wonderful job as well as anyone in the staff at the restaurant. Ambience is nice but the food was very average. Uni shooters are much better at Nobu. This is a fun place for cocktail hour and sharing a few items of food. I would not recommend going for the food... More
