Uchi

Uchi

Sure, we know Uchi isn’t a Dallas-specific restaurant, but we had to include award-winning chef Tyson Cole’s place of great sushi and fine dining. The Arts District restaurant includes hot and cold tastings, and has a seasonal menu that rotates four times a year. To guarantee quality, creativity and freshness, Uchi flies in seafood daily from the Toyosu market – in Japan. For an extra delicious experience you can order either the chef’s selection of five nigiri or three sashimi.

Yutaka Sushi Bistro

Yutaka Sushi Bistro

Don’t be fooled by its random shopping center location – Yutaka Sushi Bistro is a special place. Named after Tokyo-native Chef Yutaka Yamato, this Sushi Bistro is a place of simple and delicious bites. The Sushi and Sashimi specials, flown in straight from Japan’s Tsukiji Fish Market, are extra fresh. If you just can’t choose what to order (or if you just want something quite literally extra special), you can give Chef Yutaka the reins and order a tasting of the rarest offerings of his choosing.

Tei Tei Robata Bar

Tei Tei Robata Bar

Tei Tei Robata Bar has no shame in making you step out of your comfort zone. They admit that some of their food may seem “weird”, but take the risk and make the visit a full blown cultural experience. The James Beard nominated founder Teiichi Sakurailk, along with Katsutoshi Sakamoto paved their own path to make a big sushi splash in Dallas, and were the first to bring “Washu beef on the rock” to Dallas from Japan.

Tei-An

Tei-An

Chef Teiichi Sakurai is back, but this time with Tei-An. Though Saukurai focused this swanky and stylish restaurant’s cuisine on freshly made soba noodle dishes, Tei-An also serves seasonal sashimi, a number of daily specials, or an Omakase experience. Tei-An’s design brings a sleek and “modern Tokyo” to Dallas, and encourages diners to sit at the soba counter that wraps the stone garden. That’s right, there’s a stone garden.

Nobu

Nobu

Yes, Nobu has locations across the country and all over the world, but their upscale and luxurious take on sushi earned them a spot on our list. Located at The Crescent in Uptown, Nobu is consistently delicious, and offers a wide variety of bites to choose from. It’s almost intimidating trying to make a decision. But rest knowing that its creative and unique dishes, sushi, and sashimi is will always deliver.

Imoto

Imoto

Chef Kent Rathbun’s Imoto, located in Victory Park, prides itself on putting its own modern flare, and unique and creative mark on upscale Asian dining. Yes, there’s a traditional sushi bar and plenty of sushi (and by plenty I mean the list is exhaustive), but the same is true for the restaurant’s offerings of sashimi. If sashimi is your thing, we think you’ll feel very accommodated.

Teppo

Teppo

Okay, Sakurai – we get it, you’re good. That’s right, Sakurai also started Teppo, but back in 1995 before Tei Tei or Tei-An even existed. Teppo has maintained its status as a beloved Dallas staple for all these years. The rolls are freakishly fresh, yet not exorbitantly expensive. So at that rate (literally), there’s no reason not to make a visit to Teppo.

Oishii

Oishii

Oishii may be a completely unassuming little place on the outside, but its sushi packs a fresh and flavorful punch. The coveted restaurant located is always bustling, and that’s no surprise thanks to their tasty and ingenious fusion of flavors. Some of their special sushi rolls showcase barbecue flavors, cajun spice, or even Mexican freshness!

Sushi Sake

Sushi Sake

Sushi Sake is a proud family owned restaurant situated just outside the metroplex in Richardson. The selection from their menu is extensive, so you’re sure to find something (or many things) that will suit your fancy. And speaking of fancy, the beautiful presentation and vibrant colors of the dishes might make you feel a little fancy. They might just seem too pretty to eat. But you should eat them.

Shinsei

Shinsei

Owners Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing have been dishing out serious sushi to locals for a decade now, and there’s no sign of their slowing down. They formed the restaurant together to serve refreshing sushi bites to their neighborhood, and boy have they ever. Just browse their menu for a second, and you’ll find something guaranteed to be delicious. Their belief in quality and creativity shines through in their list of Shinsei favorites and specials.
