The first thing that struck me was the music: sound like 80s rock music - but this is a sushi place - so very atypical of what I expected. The food and service, however, are fantastic. Started out with a variety of finger foods, all beautifully presented as I would have expected. The courses were all within the $15-30 range,... More

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The restaurant was very crowded. The noise level is very high. Service was good. The food however was absolutely delicious. The scallops were tasty and the Brussels sprouts were fantastic. The salmon was the best. Very flavorful and a nice portion size along with the broccoli and rice. My only complaint was... More

Shinsei has made the transition from hot and happening sexy Asian fusion restaurant to reliable neighborhood place. We came as a family to celebrate a birthday. The interior is still a bit dark, with modern, sharp lines. Our server was helpful, and made good suggestions. The food is good across the board. We pretty much kept ordering appetizers to share...

Friendly service with a nice decor. The sushi was good but far from great. Not sure why we did Sushi in Dallas and we did and we got what we should have expected - above average sushi.

I know genuine Japanese food and this restaurant doesn't come close. And with only one Japanese chef it was disappointing. Food maybe fine for the western palatte but honestly there is much better. And a bit expensive. It is located in a not so good part of town. This Japanese restaurant is too commercial and misses the true Japanese tradition.

This is one of the highest quality sushi places in dallas. For the actual food, it is top tier. The service is impeccable, but it is generally a bit more casual than other places with this caliber food. Uchi and Tei-An are the other two places I have dined at that go toe-to-toe with shinsei for deliciousness, but both of... More

Great sushi and cocktails! Wonderful energy and service. Not a place to have a business meeting or romantic interlude, however, if you want a fun Saturday night with family or friends - this could be your place. There are choices for the adventurous as well as the cautious sushi lover. Make sure and acquire a reservation at prime dinner hour... More

With a variety of dietary restrictions, including vegans and gluten free, executive chef Carlos was extra accommodating for our group. The highlights at the table of 14 were the fried rice (amazing flavors), beef cheek, ribs and of course the outstanding variety of sushi. The entire serving team could not have been more attentive, especially our server Stella. In talking... More

Came here with a friend and our 2 boys. We were in town for Dallas cup soccer tournament. Came here on a recommendation. Boy were we not disappointed.
