When you think of Dallas, sushi might not be the first thing that comes to mind, however, you can definitely find some top quality sushi here, including some hidden gems! So let us take you on a journey through the city’s best sushi, sashimi, Omakase and hand rolls! Each of these places is asian-owned, as we want to honor those who have been victims of anti-asian hate.

 

 

FUJIYAMA

FUJIYAMA

A self-proclaimed, “best kept secret in Dallas,” 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!

HIBIKI SUSHI

HIBIKI SUSHI

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.

KAZE

KAZE

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.

KEIICHI

KEIICHI

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.

NORI HANDROLL

NORI HANDROLL

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! And their food at Nori is truly top-notch!

OISHII

OISHII

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!

TEPPO YAKITORI

TEPPO YAKITORI

There is a reason Teppo has had a home on Lower Greenville since 1995. 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

Tei Tei Robata Bar is a sushi restaurant that prides itself on making its guests feel as though they’ve 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.

UCHI

UCHI

This restaurant definitely lives up to the hype. 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!

Or head upstairs for the more casual and more affordable Uchiba, where you’ll find many of the same sushi dishes!

UPTOWN | DIRECTIONS

 

YUTAKA

YUTAKA

This is the most “hidden-gem-in-plain-sight” spot 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 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!

TEI-AN

TEI-AN

One of the nicest food experiences you can have in Dallas, Tei-An has been around for more than 10 years, hidden in the Arts District. The space is minimalist, clean and beautiful - you feel like you have been transported to a swanky restaurant in Tokyo. The service and presentation is immaculate, and the sushi, some of the freshest in the city.

SUSHI ROBATA

SUSHI ROBATA

Sushi Robata is an Izakaya style of Japanese restaurant. That means you’ll find a Japanese bar/restaurant that offers after-work relaxation and an opportunity to unwind after a busy day. Both the owner and chef hail from Japan originally, with extensive knowledge and training, which shows given that Sushi Robata has now been around for more than 10 years!

MR. SUSHI

MR. SUSHI

Mr. Sushi is one of the longest standing sushi spots on the list too, opening more than 35 years ago and offering a special creativity in providing you exactly what you want. If it’s not on the menu, just ask and they’ll prepare a sushi roll custom to your tastes!

SUSHI ROCK

SUSHI ROCK

The meaning of rock in Sushi Rock might not be your first guess -- it signifies the rock music you’ll find at the restaurant! Combining classic rock with excellent sushi is Sushi Rock’s specialty, and people have the best things to say about both the food and atmosphere! It’s a fun, lively time, perfect for a dinner before a big night out, or a fun birthday party.

HON SUSHI

HON SUSHI

A sushi-based restaurant, that also offers traditional Japanese and Korean BBQ dishes, Hon is one of the hidden gems that only true sushi lovers know about. You can drop by for Bento Box lunch specials or go for an intensive experience with their sushi and sashimi list - think sea urchin, quail egg, octopus and a lot of other fish we’ve never even heard of. We are told you must try the salmon belly sashimi though!

EDOKO OMAKASE

EDOKO OMAKASE

The sister spot to Edoko, a sushi restaurant in Frisco and Richardson, Edoko Omakase is the only one of its kind, hidden in a strip mall in Las Colinas. It’s female-owned, with a sushi chef, Keunsik Lee, who spent time at Nobu prior. The sleek restaurant brings us a casual but upscale sushi restaurant, featuring a super special omakase offering and some of the best sake in in DFW!
