Las Vegas, Japanese, Sushi Off Strip
Hello. We will be in Vegas for a week in May and are looking for a couple of good choices as far away as Henderson. Preliminary gleaning of various sites has revealed many off strip possiblities for lunch or dinner. Please suggest best of these if you have been- or others as you wish. Izakaya and /or sushi. We will be staying at the south end of the strip and have a car. Will probably hit 3 or 4 places.

I Love Sushi
Thanks in advance for any info.
Raku and Sen as listed above are the way to go. Haven't been to Ichiza myself yet, so I can't comment. Definitely skip I love sushi.
I've only been to Midori once--it's a small place, but it was a pleasant experience. The Ka has closed. Yama Sushi is close to my workplace; several of my coworkers swear by their AYCE, but I haven't been there myself for some time (since they switched to a sushi-only menu). Yummy Grill is low end, and (IIRC) only has rolls. One place you haven't mentioned in the general area is Miko's Sushi, corner of Windmill & Bermuda. Mom & Pop place with homestyle dishes & sushi. Good food, and they take pride in offering fresh wasabi with their sushi. (Google & their website say "izakaya", but I wouldn't really call it an izakaya experience.)
There are a few choices clustered around Raku:
