Sensi has four different kitchens specializing in American, Italian, Asian and seafood dishes. Pasta, burgers and sushi on your table at the same time?? We must be dreaming.
Transplanting their highly touted raw fish concept to the heart of Sin City, the Bromberg Bros' first non-NY effort eschews over-the-top Vegas opulence in favor of more traditional digs, creating myriad victual vestibules via slatted floor-to-ceiling wooden screens, and housing their vast selection of sea former life behind a large horseshoe bar, though ironically look to the other for your (eq)wine.
Kabuto is an intimate sushi house that's hard to spot and thrives on a word-of-mouth reputation. The menu isn't for the masses; edomae sushi is deceptively simple, typically only featuring one type of fish served nigiri style on a bed of white rice. So no fancy rolls or stuff that comes in a box, here-- Kabuto offers stark, elegant high quality fare served with a striking attention to detail.
There are a few places with the same name in Las Vegas, but the Yummy Grill & Sushi on Lake Mead Blvd is the one you MUST visit at least once. It’s independently operated by a chef who mixes up the menu daily with fresh fish selections flown in from all over the world, including Australia and Spain as well as Japan.
With locations across the country and the world, Katsuya is a sleek, modern Japanese restaurant with a reputation for innovation and quality. Owned and operated by one of the few Master Sushi Chefs in America, Chef Katsuya Uechi, this chain never ever forsakes quality, always serving the freshest seafood possible prepared with the best techniques. Known for celebrity sightings as well as for the food, this is a very popular spot in a venue that isn't exactly huge. Go early to get a seat and check out their happy hour, or be prepared to make a reservation in advance.
A complete Asian dining experience with Chinese noodles on the menu to go along with the sushi and other Japanese selections. Dragon Noodle is also known for handcrafted Tiki cocktails and an extensive wine list.
The idea here is to expose locals to Strip quality cuisine without breaking the bank. The growing world-of-mouth sometimes leads to a short wait for tables, but it’s more than worth it for the 10-piece sashimi sampler or the 8-hour braised bone-in short rib with wasabi cream.
In a race to have the freshest seafood in Las Vegas, barMASA promises to only use fish selections that have been out of Japan’s coastal waters for no more than 24 hours. The signature roll is the Masa Toro Toro. It’s filled with wild blue fin toro (which is a delicious fatty tuna), Tokyo Negi onion, and fresh wasabi.
Chef Devin Hashimoto has taken his knowledge about modern Japanese cuisine and given a classier crowd of Vegas-dwellers something to write home about. The place glitters with a dramatic gold and red interior (you're in Vegas, after all) and your taste buds will freak out with just one mouthful of sushi. Just stay away from the koi pond after your eighth cocktail.
The dining room is very modern and offers a selection of Japanese cuisine served tapas style. The sushi presentations are among the most creative you’ll find in Las Vegas and include the Fat Duck, made with crispy foie gras, eel, Gruyère, bacon, and avocado.
The restaurant fills the role of being the top dining destination at the WestinHhotel. And while the name and menu have recently been expanded, the sushi remains the best reason to check it out. Enjoy a Crunchy Eel Roll, and then finish the night with a cocktail by the lakeside fire pits.
Tao has a little something for everyone. Perfect for date nights with its koi pound, hanging Buddha statue and cocktail lounge, the dining space (just like the menu) offers a mishmash of Chinese, Japanese and Thai cultures. Take them all in with a full plate of salmon, halibut or yellowtail sushi, spicy dumpling soup or traditional dim sum. Pro tip: come early to watch the sunset on Tao's beach before it closes, then eat. Finish around 10pm and you can head straight over to the nightclub for a live DJ set and an endless cocktail selection.
The chef perfected his craft working at restaurants on the Strip and now has his own place in a location that used to be a New York-style dinner. He’s on mission to keep hungry mouths away from all-you-can-eat sushi places while emphasizing the freshest fish from Japan. Don’t be surprise if you see a live lobster waving at you before dinner is served.
Nobu is more than just a restaurant. It’s also a hotel-within-a-hotel at Caesars Palace. But the buzz begins with the sushi and the snapper with dry miso. It’s the biggest Nobu restaurant in the world and the only one in the US to come with teppan tables for that Japanese steakhouse experience.
A 10,000 square foot Korean-inspired sushi spot from Chef Akira Back at the Mandalay Bay hotel, Kumi offers a high-end dining experience in a sleek space made blushing pink with cherry blossom canvases throughout. Besides the usual sashimi offerings, the Japanese spot also offers an extensive list of shareable plates like shishito peppers and kimchee butter edamame.
