Las Vegas Sushi Help....Which one is the best?
Can anyone give their two cents on which sushi place is the best place to go for a great dinner? We are deciding among...Sushi Roku (Caesars), Okada (Wynn) and Nobu. We are looking for the best sushi, not necessarily the "place to be!" :-) Thanks so much for your help!!
Definitely Okada. It excels in quality and preparation of the fish, in its friendly chefs, and in its beautiful environment. Sushi Roku is pretty good, but not quite in the same league in any of the three categories. I've found Nobu to be particularly disappointing with respect to sushi; it's safer stick to non-sushi items here.
i've eaten many times at shintaro at bellagio. always found the sushi to be excellent. don't know how it compares to okada, and never see shintaro mentioned here, but i'd go back tomorrow.
Okada would be my choice. I have had Sushi Roku & was not at all impressed.
I can't comment on Nobu, as I have never dined there.
Of the three you list Nobu is by far the best, and is, in fact, the best sushi in the city--if you're looking for authenticity and unusual ingredients. There's more than sushi there too--the chef's tasting menu (Omakasa) is the best way to experience the cuisine (which includes a nice traditional sushi course) and is offeres in two price tiers $115, $135--I believe). We've had this meal six times and it's excellent. However, the most recent time--earlier this month--was very good, though it lacked the distinct "wow" factor we experienced in our other visits. We learned that the chef has moved on to Social House in TI, which we have yet to eat at, but I think is worth a try. The other issue here is dealing with the Hard Rock which can get quite unruly. Okada is good too but I left hungry after a $300 meal (the Wynn effect), and Sushi Roku is too trendy. If you're a local, don't want to spend that much, or don't mind a bit of a drive Momo Sushi in Henderson (on Stephanie) is fantastic, friendly and affordable. What sets them apart is the quality of their ingredients. Be sure to ask about their specials--Aji sashimi (have the skeleton fried), shishamo, fresh uni, live king prawns, and fresh wasabi. Another great place is the tiny Koto in Henderson (on Eastern). They have great cooked dishes and sushi both. Distinguish yourself a foodie and the husband and wife chef-manager team will take excellent care of you. Keep away from "all-you-can-eat" places. Enjoy.
Off the strip?
West: Sushi Fever on Sahara
East: I Love Sushi (Henderson)
(at least these were very good when I left Vegas a year ago)
Try Sushi Bay on Windmill and Pecos. Small place but terrific food, friendly staff...get there early cause the place really fills up!!
