Best Sushi Restaurants in Las Vegas: Where the Locals Go

Best Sushi Restaurants in Las Vegas

Despite the fact that it is landlocked, Las Vegas is a great city to enjoy some of the best sushi. You can get sushi at all different price points from $ to $$$$$. There are many sushi restaurants in Las Vegas, so it might be difficult to determine which one you should try. The new Nobu in Caesar’s Palace would be the newest place on the strip, but the experience will definitely cost you. If you’re looking for something that is still going to be memorable and mouthwatering, but for a $-$$ budget you might want to venture off the strip for this meal.

(À La Carte Sushi and All-You-Can-Eat Sashimi)

Kaze Sushi is Las Vegas’ newest gem of a sushi restaurant. It just opened in January and has already become a crowd favorite. Most sushi restaurants in Las Vegas offer All-You-Can-Eat sushi where you waste valuable stomach space with the rice; Kaze Sushi has All-You-Can-Eat SASHIMI (All the good stuff without the filler!) at a price point of $20. That means you can order the unlimited sashimi special AND still be able to order a few delicious rolls and unique appetizers to accompany your sashimi extravaganza. The owner takes great pride in the quality of his product so everything is fresh. The vibes here are hip and trendy, yet refined. If you’re a die-hard sushi lover who appreciates authentic Japanese cuisine and is into Japanese fusion, this will totally be your new hangout spot.

Osaka is Las Vegas’ original Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. It has been serving up quality, authentic Japanese delights since 1967. There are no frills at this low-key sushi place, just good ingredients and good chefs. These talented sushi chefs have developed some unique sushi rolls like the steak roll whose combinations of flavors and textures are sure to please. Osaka Japanese Bistro’s popularity and longevity can be credited to its satisfying food. Just ask one of their many dedicated repeat customers! If you are looking for a true taste of Japan and something a little exotic, Osaka offers a few delicacies that you can normally only find in Japan such as Awabi (live abalone), Aoyagi (live surf clams), Katsuo (bonita), Kanpachi (rudderfish), Sayori (Halfbeak) and Blue Fin Toro (tuna belly). You must experience these rare treats for yourself.

Oyshi  (All-You-Can-Eat Sushi)

The tagline “Sushi, Sake, and Fun” pretty much sums up what you’ll experience at Oyshi. This is a more typical Las Vegas style All-You-Can-Eat sushi joint, but a cool one. The space here is roomy and has an urban feel. Sleek, modern furniture is mixed with street art wall murals and mood lighting. Sushi rolls here are of good taste and quality. Dessert (which is included with your All-You-Can-Eat meal) is the awesome end to a filling meal. Choose from the exotic Green Tea Tiramisu to the delightful Berry Parfait. During ‘Ladies Night’ from 11pm-2am, ladies get a discount on All-You-Can-Eat dinner prices. On Mondays and Tuesdays, you can get 2 for 1 sake. They also have private rooms that you can request for large parties.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant
The best way to get an up close and personal view of Las Vegas is by taking the elevator ride up to the Eiffel Tower Restaurant at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. It is quite appropriately named as it is located inside the hotel’s Eiffel Tower replica. If you want to dine fancy with the beauty of the Strip as your setting, this location is prime because it is smack-dab in the middle of everything. As you watch the picturesque Bellagio fountain show and savor your delicate, flaky Individual Eiffel Tower Beef Wellington, your heart will exclaim, “C’est magnifique!” (Translation: “This is beautiful!”) Be prepared to shed a tear.

Mix at the Mandalay Bay Hotel boasts one of the best views of the Las Vegas Strip and offers an innovative menu worth sampling. This lux restaurant and ultra lounge is the perfect place for dinner, drinks, and coy conversation. It is located at the southern end of the Strip, so you get a beautiful bird’s eye shot of the whole street from south the north. The décor is modern, artistic, and chic. Enjoy their signature Lobster Curry and the miX candy bar (a pleasant combination of coconut/lime sorbet coated in chocolate and topped with a single golden leaf). At Mix, you will feel like you are the ultra coolest person on the top of the world.

NOVE at the top of the Palms Casino Resort also offers a breathtaking panoramic of the Las Vegas skyline. The windows are right next to the huge Palms sign so you get to experience it in all of its glittering glory. Bonus! The restaurant itself is dim, lit primarily by crystal chandeliers that glow neon pink. This allows the bright lights of the city to be the backdrop to your delicious dinner experience. They are known for their spaghetti full of seafood and squid ink noodles in a light red sauce. Finish your meal with some cannoli for sharing. They give you the shells, a pipette of cream, and a sampling platter of sauces and toppings as a kind of DIY dessert. This restaurant with a view is definitely a great place for fun with friends or a date!

For a more exhilarating experience, you can be part of the view at Dinner in the Sky LV. This extreme concept restaurant brings fine dining to new heights, literally. You and 21 other guests will be hoisted 180 feet into the air where there is nothing supporting your table except a hanging crane arm. As you float above the Las Vegas skyline, you will enjoy a gourmet meal with world class personal service. Imagine the wind in your hair, wine in your hand, and an unobstructed 360 degree view of the Las Vegas strip. Sounds like the perfect evening for any classy, food-loving adventurer.
