Las Vegas has an array of fine dining experiences available for visitors. Even several hours away from the ocean, Las Vegas’s sushi scene is one that we can’t get enough of. These restaurants offer unique creations and quality sushi that will make you wish you could come back week after week for more. Here are eight of our favorite sushi restaurants in Las Vegas… more favorites to come!
7331 W Lake Mead Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89128 (702) 771-0122
Chef Eric Kim creates a unique dining experience for sushi lovers. No set menu. Reservation only. He prepares an array of sushi dishes based on in-season fish and live seafood. The dining experience is small, exclusive, and exquisitely upscale. While dining here you can expect creations like o-toro sushi with gold flakes, live Maine lobster with sea urchin, caviar, kamashita toro, and 23 karat gold flake, and live uni over brown rice. The dishes are beautiful and one of a kind. If you’re feeling adventurous, stop by to try one of his two hour tasting sessions. This restaurant can be found off the strip, which helps keeps costs down. The dining experience still begins at $165 / head.

A unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian, and Peruvian culture and cuisine. We really enjoy the atmosphere at Sushisamba and how the cultures blend so fluidly when it comes to the cuisine. The yellowtail shashimi with jalapeno and lemongrass is great quality. For rolls, try the Samba strip featuring maine lobster, mango, avocado, soy paper, lotus root chips, and aji honey truffle or the Neo Tokyo roll with bigeye tuna, tempura flakes, and aji panca. The Lima roll is a popular one for those of you who like shrimp tempura, spicy king crab, and avocado. Other must try dishes here are the Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef Gyoza with kabocha puree, su-shoyu dipping sauce and sweet soy and the miso-marinated chilean seabass. We really can’t tell you how wonderful the food is here, you have to experience it for yourself! * New to the menu, you have to try the Samba Covent Garden roll with soft shell crab, hamachi,yuzu tobiko, bonito flakes, avocado, asparagus, and yuzu miso.*

Anytime we’re in Vegas, we stop by Tao for dinner. It’s one of our personal favorites. The Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno and Ponzu sauce, Spicy Tuna Tartate on Crispy Rice, and the Halibut Ceviche roll with Tuna and wasabi sauce. Aside from sushi, I will say the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with Wok Vegetables is unreal and you have to try it. You can try it as a Satay of Chilean Sea Bass with Edamame Hijiki Salad if you want it as an appetizer. The chicken gyoza, filet mignon pepper steak, crispy coconut shrimp with spicy tai peanut sauce, and drunken lobster pad thai are all wonderful as well.
3655 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (702) 385-0755
This is a quick lunch stop that we really enjoy. Tucked away inside the Paris Hotel, this unassuming sushi restaurant has some amazing fish. We highly recommend ordering the Yellowtail here– the quality of the fish is outstanding. Their bite sized Yellowtail ceviche tacos featuring hamachi tartar, schichimi togarashi, micro coriander, fresh lime, and Japanese creamy sesame sauce are delightful. We wanted to order 10 more. The 3 piece Yellowtail tiradito with serrano and yuzu ponzu is wonderful. Must try the Yellowtail jalapeno roll with real jalapeno slices.
7377 S Jones Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89139 (702) 766-7778
Chef John Chien Lee has been serving customers for over 20 years and we’re happy he’s here. If you stop by, you must try the Yellowtail yuzu soy and the cajun albacore. We really enjoyed the twin dragon roll with king crab, spicy tuna, avocado, and shrimp tempura. There’s the restaurant the Soho Japanese Restaurant and also Soho Sushi Burrito where you can build your own sushi burritos!

Kabuto Edomae Sushi
5040 Spring Mountain Road, Las Vegas, NV (702) 676-1044
If you come, the Hagashi Otoro (silky fatty tuna) and Chutoro (medium fatty tuna) are both outstanding. The $48 Omakase (for 10 pieces of sushi) is a good deal if you’re looking to try several types of fish.
3570 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas NV 89109 (702)785-6628
Try the black cod miso, yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno, and the nobu crispy rice with bigeye tuna. All delicious. You really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu; if you’re feeling adventurous try the Omakase and experience a multi-course menu. It’s pricey, costing $175 or $225 a head for the chef’s daily creations or $125 for Nobu’s signature omakase menu. It’s worth it.
3708 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109 (702) 698-2199
For a contemporary japanese dining experience, stop by Zuma. Zuma shares, “designed by noriyoshi muramatsu who has been working with the group since the first venue, its cuisine is inspired by the informal izakaya dining style that makes it authentic but not traditional. the menu is designed to be shared and offers dishes from a sushi counter, main kitchen and a robata grill.” Come and try the Yaki Taraba Gani (king crab with ponzu lime butter) and the Japanese Grade A5 with wagyu beed, tahoon aioli, chili daikon ponzu, and fresh wasabi. Get a Pirikara Hamachi roll to share: a spicy yellowtail roll with serrano peppers, avocado, and wasabi mayo. The suzuki no osashimi with seabass sashmini,m yuzu, truffle, and salmon roe is also outstanding.
