  1. Sushi Sake, in Richardson, has the best sushi in the area, in my opinion. Lunch is relatively inexpensive.

    You will get better suggestions, though, if you let people know what part of town you will be in. DFW is a large geographic area.

      I've actually been doing a little sushi tasting around town lately.

      Sushi Sake in Richardson is still my favorite, and in fact I'm going again next week. Good service. Great selection of fish. Well priced. They don't really go in for the experimental stuff because their fish speaks for itself.

      Kampai in Addison Circle. I've never had a bad meal here and send people here all the time. Its never busy and they are so accomodating. The fish is very good!!

      Sushi Kyoto II near SMU is pretty good. Nice sized rolls at a fair price and the nigiri was small but tasty. No liquor last time I went though, but they were giving out free sake.

      Fusion on Lemmon was delcious. Pricey, but delcious. One of the best spicey tuna rolls I've had around. I want to go back and do a real meal there though.

      Reiyku at Mockingbird station was a surprise. I was really expecting nothing but a quick meal after a movie. Decided to get some of the experiemental rolls Got the volcano roll on a whim and we were litterally licking the plate and the nine roll was very good. Very nice sized pieces and a great atmosphere. I couldn't stop looking into the windows of the lofts next door.

      Deep Sushi on Elm is about the same as usual. Pretty good sushi for the neighborhood. Can't really complain. Funny thing, Gino from Gino's Vino is the new manager. He had to close down the old place due to high rents. He brought in music on Friday and Saturday nights and the place is open until 2 am.

      I liked Yamaguchi, but I think someone below stated that it might be closed.

      Masami on Beltline in Richardson is a good neighborhood place. Small and clean. The fish is pretty good and the new owners are very nice. I dont' quite like it as much since Pote left.

      Best lunch deal is Sushi Loco at Campbell and Coit. Great deals on sushi and its pretty darn cheap!! Not the best best best sushi around, but for lunch you can't complain.

      Blue Fish is fine, but I find the pieces to be just way to big and overpriced.

      Since I didn't know what part of town you are in, I hope this helps.

        Good list, Victoria!

        By the way, I withdraw my previous recommendation of Sakura in Plano/Frisco. Over the last six months, the quality, service and value have all declined. Even with half-price sushi Tuesday through Thursday, it's not worth it.

        1. re: Kirk

          Sakura hasn't been good for a LONG time

          I would recommend Sushi Rock in East Plano, Sushi Awajii at Ohio and Park in Plano and Deep Sushi in Deep Ellum. Just a few off the top of my head.

          Have you tried the sushi at Ino's, which is also at Coit and Campbell? They seem to be increasing their sushi selection, but it is a favorite of ours because of the wide array of non-sushi options as well. I am always impressed with the sushi, though, and it is a bit more relaxed atmosphere than Sushi Sake.

          1. re: Dave G

            No, I haven't tried that place yet, and I keep forgetting about it. Its kind of hidden. I have read some very good reviews though.

        3. Teppo on lower Greenville Ave in Dallas still has good sushi

          1. once a week for the last ten years i have gone to Sushi Ichiban just north of Forest on Greenville Ave at the corner of Markville Ln. The head sushi chef and owner, Park-san, who usually works the left side of the huge bar offers up some the biggest servings of excellent fish for the most reasonable prices in town. Lunch is usually fairly well trafficed due to the proximity of TI. Happy hour every evening and all day Sunday. GO Go Go!

              I have to second Sushi Ichiban, I took my hubby there a few weeks ago, and everything was *excellent*.

            2. Piranha Sushi in Arlington, which is slated to open a second location in downtown FW.

                I'll second that. Piranha has some very inventive sushi and rolls, and the FW location is larger than the Arlington original, though just as packed.


                1. re: TexasToast

                  I still favor Arlington over Fort Worth. Maybe I caught them on an off night.

                2. re: Soo-Sci Chef

                  Killer Piranha was great. I tried sushi for the very first time 2 weeks ago at this restaurant in Fort Worth. It was awesome! Boy have I been missing out! So, I'm going to be taking everyone's advice and trying different places around DFW.
