Fresh, Delicious and Inventive: Las Vegas' 10 Best Sushi Restaurants

Along the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll find a wealth of sushi restaurants that pride themselves in serving artfully prepared dishes in elegant surroundings. Off the Strip, you’ll still find delicious sushi restaurants, but in more casual surroundings.

Japanese restaurants on the Strip serve outstanding sushi, sashimi, and other dishes in upscale, beautiful surroundings. Mizumi at the Wynn gives diners serene and lovely waterfalls as a backdrop to go along with the sushi and other dishes.

Well-known sushi and Japanese restaurants have migrated to Las Vegas, opening locations in the city. Celebrity Chef Nobu Matsuhisa lends his name to the well-known Nobu at Caesars Palace, the largest of his restaurants. All along the Strip, restaurants featuring sushi consistently deliver wonderful dishes of the best, freshest fish, often with a twist. Although Las Vegas may not be next to the ocean, fresh fish is flown in daily to restaurants throughout the city.

Off the Strip, the menu selections are still mouth-watering, but diners can enjoy a more laid-back, less expensive experience. Most are a short drive from the Strip, but these locals’ favorites are gaining a foothold among visitors.
