Started with tempura vegetables. had the duck, and the sushi tasted very fresh. Service was excellent and took the time to explain different menu items. The food we had was very good and some reasonable prices.

If you're more into freshness and quality than ambiance this is the place in uptown Houston for sushi. Their service is excellent and we've never been anything but wowed with Ginza. We try to get in a meal with every trip to Houston.

This has been our favored family sushi place for many years. The quality of the food is consistently good, the staff is friendly. Nothing for the fancy show-off diner but always packed with long time customers.

A friend moved into an apartment off San Felipe and we thought about checking out local eateries and came across a rather bland front strip mall type entrance to GINZA Japanese Restaurant. Thought okay let's give it a try but not expecting too much. Once...More
