BY SAM SCHAFER
When you think of Dallas, sushi might not be the first thing that comes to mind in terms of some of our best cuisine offerings. However, you can definitely count on finding some top quality spots around Dallas, including some hidden gems you might not know exist! So let us take you on a journey through the city’s best sushi, sashimi, Omakase and hand rolls!
A self-proclaimed, “best kept secret in Dallas,” we would have to agree with the statement! This hidden gem offers top quality sushi, yakitori and Omakase at their Addison spot. And it’s all delicious…definitely go with the Omakase though and let the chef decide. If you don’t believe us, just read the extremely consistent reviews online - this spot has an extremely loyal following!

New to the Deep Ellum scene last year, Hibiki Sushi is the perfect spot for when you’re needing a sushi fix, but don’t want to get all dressed up for a night out. The atmosphere is low-key, but the fish quality is up to par with the more upscale competitors in the area.

If you’re looking for local Hibachi, look no further than Kaze! This North Dallas spot near NorthPark Center offers top quality sushi, but also offers a conveyor belt with rotating varieties of sushi you can grab, making this interactive sushi bar the perfect choice for birthdays and big groups.

Ok, of all the places listed, this really is the most “hidden gem” of all. You have to drive to Denton to experience, they don’t have a website so remain mysterious, but you must make a reservation, and there’s only 10 seats in their establishment! It’s a very intimate (but pricy) experience, but if you love sushi, this is one you don’t want to miss.

Next to the ever popular Hide bar, Nori Handroll Bar is offers the trending sushi handrolls. Walk in and take a seat at the super cool-LA vibes sushi bar, and you’ve seen the entire restaurant. No regular tables and chairs, but that’s what the handroll bar experience is all about!
P.S. go for lunch and you’ll get a free app with your order or go for dinner, and you can experience Omakase from the amazing Chef Jimmy Park!

A little off the beaten path, Oishii sits on the west side of the tollway near Oak Lawn. Oishii is a no-frills sushi restaurant, but don’t let that fool you – the sushi is high quality. Whether it’s lunch or dinner Oishii will impress even a sushi snob. It has a cult following too with legacy Dallasites, who aren’t always eager to share this gem in an effort to not spoil the secret!
Cedar Springs | Directions
Sa Sa Sushi
Tucked in the neighborhoods of Lakewood, you’ll find a quaint little spot that is perfect for a cozy sushi dinner with friends or a significant other. You’ll get a more traditional Japanese experience here, but also have the option to order some of your more modern favorites.

There is a reason Teppo has had a home on Lower Greenville since 1995. Maybe you missed it before, tucked next to HG Sply, or have been wondering what it is…well it is not to be missed! The atmosphere is intimate, the sushi is excellent, and you can get your favorite sushi rolls here without issue. If you’re a beginner sushi eater or an experienced sushi lover, you’ll appreciate the variety and traditional dishes they offer.

Tei Tei Robata
Tei Tei Robata Bar is a sushi restaurant that prides itself on making its guests feel as though they’ve completely left the streets of Dallas and have traveled to Japan for dinner. Walk through the dimly-lit garden to the restaurant, and you’re in for a unique culinary experience. From the same restaurateur that brought you Teppo, Tei Tei is the go-to place for Japan’s famous barbeque style cooking – robata.
Henderson | Directions
Wondering if this restaurant lives up to the hype? We are here to tell you that yes…it absolutely does. Definitely take advantage of the daily Sake Social menu so you get discounted sushi and drinks from 5-6:30 pm. You will experience some incredible flavors at Uchi and we urge you to try some of the lesser-known items on the menu. When at Uchi, try all you can, especially the Sashimi that has been flown in straight from Japan! It’s less than a day old, and certainly worth the price!
Uptown | Directions
This is the most “hidden-gem-in-plain-sight” spots on the list. It’s right in the middle of Uptown, yet you probably have never even known it was right off of McKinney Ave next to the UPS Store and across from Bowen House. Full disclosure: we didn’t either until writing this article! But both the reviews and quality are top-notch for this sushi and small-plate Japanese restaurant!

Blue Sushi Sake Grill
Although a chain, Blu Sushi has been a Dallas favorite for a long time, and now we have one at our disposal right in the heart of uptown. This is a perfect spot to grab dinner with friends before heading out to the bars on McKinney. We recommend starting your night out with one of Blue Sushi’s delicious cocktails.
