Description: A taste of the Far East in the heart of the Southwest. We create vibrant fusion cuisine rooted in the flavors of Japan & the Pacific Rim. We are proud to serve all organic meats & poultry, such as American Kobe, Kurobuta Pork, & Natural Black Angus Beef. At our sushi bar enjoy cutting edge sushi & sashimi made from the best quality seafood & fresh line caught fish from Hawaiian waters. Our menu offers many tantalizing small dishes. We encourage you to order a variety of them and share amongst your table.

This is a fabulous sushi restaurant. I currently live in Hawaii and have access to the freshest fish on the planet., so I am skeptical about trying sushi elsewhere. ExSW is creative, fresh, and highly recommended. Other menu items are just as tasty. The squash blossoms are orgasmic.

This is the best place of sushi I have ever been! They have an amazing variety of sushi, and I love the creativity of the dishes is amazing. Good selection of sake and great mojitos!
I used to travel from Mexico to visit this place and now I travel from East Tennessee to have the best sushi ever in this place!

East by Southwest is always exceptional. I was most happy on my last visit when I requested Chef special from Sergio and was given an incredible sampling. Although I was raised on the west coast with some great Asian and Sushi restaurants (like California Beach by Kazoo) East by Southwest is the top of the mark. Always a first choice.

Hip, funky-asian, happening atmosphere; not your serious, quiet, traditional setting, which was perfect for our evening. Excellent, attentive service. A varied menu, with sushi standards plus many adventurous offerings, which allowed for the varied palates in our party to to try and enjoy. Thanks to our server for the education and update on Unagi and for suggesting a tasty alternative. Very nice hand-mulled Mojitos (I know, I know, not Japanese, but yummy all the same). Only "eh": sushi cuts were a bit sparse
