Sushi in Plano

What is a good place to eat sushi in the Plano or North Dallas area? Fresh with good rolls and prices that are moderate ( say, no more than $20-$25/person for the sushi?)

      I highly recommend Sushi Sake in Richardson (Collins near Campbell @ 75). Just please don't tell anyone... it's crowded enough already. ;)

      1. re: DiRotiman

        While Sushi Sake is my absolute favorite sushi restaurant in town, I'm not sure it is a good recommendation for people looking for rolls. My friends are predominatly roll-people, and they are baffled by my love for Sushi Sake.

          Aight den... Sushi On McKinney. Best rolls, including their Osaka-style "pressed sushi" -- the best I've tried. They have something I've never seen anywhere else called mushroom sushi. Two Edo-style pieces filled with sliced, fresh mushrooms and a Bernaise-ish mayo sauce. They are then gently roasted under a broiler and served piping hot. I reckon I'm a bit more of a sashimi guy, tho...

          1. re: DiRotiman

            Interesting. I'm usually a sashima fan too, but the few experiences I've had with pressed sushi were positive. Will definitely stop by SoM soon. Thanks for the tip!

    2. Nakamoto is very good. It's been around a long time, so the rolls are pretty standard, but everything is always very fresh and wonderful tasting.

        Nakamoto's sushi is horrible. All the fish is bland and tastes the same. It's really sad that is considered sushi...

        1. re: kuidaore

          Not only that the last two times I was there I saw creepy crawly critters around the bar. I have a friend who always tries to drag me there, I simply refuse now.

      2. Second the rec for Seabose, though it is takeout only and technically not in Plano (Carrollton). Definitely best value for the price. There aren't that many options for rolls if that's what you're concentrating on.

        I like the atmosphere and rolls at Simon's Sushi (Central Expwy @ Plano Pkwy). Everyone is on a first name basis with the friendly sushi chefs (especially Simon) and it's BYOB. Can't ask for more when it comes to quaint atmosphere. Rolls are definitely the highlight here. All the standards are good, and there are some quirky off the menu rolls like the BTS (tempura bits topped with pico de gallo and sesame oil) that sound strange but are tasty.

          To piggy-back off Donna,

          At Simon's Sushi first recommendation is sit at the sushi bar, you get better service. The Monday night....could be Tuesday night, is a roll with asparagus in it with an awesome sauce on top. The tuna scallion has been good on most visits, lightly seared tuna with olive oil, julienned green onions, and jalapenos (not on a menu). Also order what the people who know Simon on a first name basis get and not rely to much on a menu.

          I would avoid going to Simons on a Friday or Saturday nights as the lines can get long in a cramped waiting area and the Planonites (mostly West Planonites (I supposed that is what you would call them)) are sometimes rude cutting in line and talking on their cell phones so they ignore you when you cuss at them, just my experience.

          1. re: donnaaries

            I agree about Simon's Sushi, I found the atmosphere to be incredible, and the sushi is some of the best I have ever eaten. The prices are really quite fair. I can't wait to go back there to try more things from the menu, and to actually sit at the bar. (Thanks for the tip, soulslinger.) A+!

          2. There is also a new Sushi bar on Midway and Park (SW Corner) which is good. I like Simon's better for the Maki but this new place is very convient to my office and resonably good.

            I would also suggest the little sushi bar in the Chinese Market food court on Coit & Park (NE Corner) It's not fancy, but very resonably priced and pretty good sushi.

              We ate at a new place last night I think it was called SushiMaSu at the connor of Midway and Park, It is next to a Dickey's barbaque it was really good, very fresh great service and we thought not over priced. Three of us spent $55.00 and we were stuffed. No sake or beer though.

              1. re: Analisas mom

                All of these sound great...I am interested in dining in and wonder if anyone can suggest a place that is good that is more in the North Dallas, and West Plano area?

                1. re: jinet12

                  jinet12, can you be more specific to the geographic boundary? To me, Sushi Masu (Midway & Park), as recommended above, is West Plano.

                  1. re: jinet12

                    Actually this place is basically West Plano across from Prestonwood Baptist.

                    In North Dallas / Richardson the best is Masami on Beltline just west of 75. It faces beltline the furthest west you can go in the shopping center on the South side of the street, West side of 75.

                    There is also a place, I believe it's called Sushi Yokohama on Preston in the same center as Lavendou that is always good quality.

              2. I love Awaji - it's a block or two east of the intersection of Park and Preston. Have the Mamasan roll, it's great.

                  Well, we just happened to end up at Awaji last night, and DID have the Mamasan roll, as well as two others, one of which the sushi chef did not even have a name for, having just made it up last night, and it was amazing and beautiful as well...This place has really fresh and delicious sushi! Certainly not cheap, as no sushi is, but with a small individual bottle of sake, which was quite good BTW, and 3 really excellent rolls, and tip, it was $62.00....Not cheap, but for the quality, well worth it, and reasonable compared to other places I have been, especially up North...Thanks for all of your suggestions, and I will look into all of the others, especially the one that does excellent sushi takeout...Love that idea....

                  1. re: jinet12

                    Oh great! I'm so glad that you liked it - it's one of my favorite sushi spots.

                    1. re: Tatstar

                      Sushi Awaji is our favorite in the Dallas area, too -- highly underrated/under-discovered, which we don't mind a bit since we can usually get a table. Try the grilled miso seabass as an appetizer. It is extraordinary. We also always get the mamasan rolls as well.

                        I went to Little Katana last night and man they were busy. when they first opened we went and it was good, then they seemed to hit a slump. But they have a new Sushi guy. Mr. Kim, and his off the menu sushi and his special ROCK. He sent out some kind of avocado wrapped (I think) Tuna and crab drizzled with eel sauce and WOW! as I was talking to our server I also found out that the original chef is back and theres a whole new staff. Great food and good service.

                        1. re: blessed02

                          To just elaborate a little more on Sushi Awaji...They have shabu shabu which I have not seen at many restaurants in the area....I am really particular about sushi and this is the best that I have found in Plano...Their hamachi and toro was superb.
