so after much research, we've narrowed down sushi restaurants to okada or nobu for our vegas trip later this week. we are having a hard time deciding which we should try but i think we are leaning towards okada. we have been to nobu in nyc and loved it and would be happy to eat there again, however from what i've read okada may be slightly better...? any advise? if it makes a difference, we won't be doing omakase, mostly just sushi and rolls.
thanks!

    Having had a very mediocre (at best) experience at Nobu in the last three weeks, I'd give the thumbs up to Okada. They both have good quality fish and rolls, but I like the menu at Okada slightly better, and the service is consistently better at Okada.

      +1, especially if you have been to Nobu in NY. I was at Okada last October and really enjoyed everything- the room/view, service and the "japas". I was staying at the Wynn and this was the concierge's #1 rec for their spots.

      I like Okada (I'm from NYC and have been to Nobu in NYC).

        If you're doing just sushi and rolls, perhaps BarMASA would be worth looking into? I don't think anyone in Vegas is going to source better than them, but obviously it comes at a price.

          Personally, I dont think either is so good for sushi. The sushi in LV(at least limited to the strip) is very so-so. My wife and I eat sushi regularly and have been to Okada, Nobu(LV and NYC), etc. Look for a place that has cooked items besides the sushi, just to be on the safe side. That being said, we have not been to BarMasa or Blue Ribbon in LV, but I do like Blue Ribbon in NYC.
