When we came up with the concept of Shinsei we wanted a place that reflected our lifestyles: sometimes we went out to dinner with our kids and sometimes with our friends and husbands. We wanted to create a place where a night out with the kids didn’t mean food adults had to suffer through or a night out with the parents didn’t mean a stuffy place where kids had to wear a scratchy clip-on tie. Shinsei is just that: a neighborhood gathering place with date night appeal.
Our food is electrifying. But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Never boring, yet comforting at the same time. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.
Amazing service. The server was super attentive and professional as well as friendly. Food was good. Trendy ambience. Felt like we were actually in a more cosmopolitan city.
Always fun and very tasty. Our kids love the hot rocks and tempura green beans... and the obligatory cotton candy for dessert. Bartender is always coming up with great drink options (for adults). Sushi is always fresh and the staff is awesome!
Love Shinsei! The staff is so friendly and the food is delicious ALWAYS. One of my favorites!
Absolutely the best sushi and environment in Dallas, if you are interested in a quieter location in the restaurant request upstairs seating, less kids.
This restaurant has been consistently exceptional each time we've visited. Our server, Casey, was incredibly knowledgeable about the menu, and guided us through the menu to make sure we experienced the best dishes the restaurant has to offer. I highly recommend this restaurant!
Great signature cocktails, delicious sushi and the fried rice is a must. The service at the bar and once we were seated was top notch.
Food was delicious, as always! The heirloom tomato salad was incredible!
The experience was fantastic as always!
We had a group of six and were given a table upstairs by the bathroom which was extremely noisy. The music was loud and annoying and did not fit the atmosphere and downstairs ambiance. It was disappointing as we had emphasized to our out of town guests many attributes of the restaurant, none of which proved to be true that night. Our server Alfred was terrific, however.
Little loud but amazing.
The food was outstanding.if you’re looking for a great experience do not allow them to seat you in the outdoor patio .
Food is fantastic- however they rush you in and out so fast it is annoying for the price. Servers are knowledgeable and great - but we felt so rushed.
Service lacked attention to us but overall good.
A bit over priced and crazy busy, which affected the service. Food wasn’t spectacular
Continued excellence, same as previous review.
The food is exquisite! Ambience is entertaining! Service is impeccable! Can’t say enough!!!
Wonderful as usual.
Dinner w daughter

You cant go wrong. Faulous food. Trendy atmosphere. What are you waiting for
Best pork buns and oysters Rockefeller I ever had!
Been coming for over 12 years. Love this place. And, the blood orange margarita, AND TAMI!!!!!
As always, any occasion or group, we feel like this is home.
Appreciate that each time.
Though Tammy serves when she is able, we like each person. Everyone is nice and makes me/us feel comfortable
The best Asian restaurant in Dallas! From the atmosphere, the food, the decor, the bar, to the remarkable customer service received I was blown away. Thank you for setting the stag high!
Love this place! Always very fresh sushi and amazing service. Although a bit pricy it is definitely worth it for the quality sushi and impeccable service. 1/2 price wine on Mondays!
excellent food, waitstaff courteous and professional, chefs are true artisans.
Excellent service with great knowledge of menu. Food was first class!
Love Shinsei 💛
My husband was back from his deployment to Africa. This is this first restaurant he wanted to go to to celebrate!
One the best restaurant in DFW!!! Never disappoints!!!
Excellent in every way
We had a wonderful dinner to celebrate our anniversary! Shinsei is always our “go to” restaurant for celebrations. We always request Tammy to be our server . She’s been helping us for years -when the restaurant was Yamaguchi. After all these years ,she still remembers my favorite dish (cod) Amazing!
My husband already says he wants to go therefor his birthday. We love this restaurant — just wish it were not quite so loud.
Some of Dallas's BEST sushi, by far. The sashimi is fresh, and the rolls are delicious-- lots of options with varying spice levels and a good fish to rice ratio. We've always had very good service on our visits, and the wine selection never disappoints. Also, the appetizers I've had have been wonderful, including their prime hot rock, dumplings, and edamame, but I do wish they did more app platter/combo options so we could try a few more things with each visit.
Ambiance isn't my favorite though - it's not bad, it's just loud. I wish it were a bit quieter and cozier.
Amazing as always! Loved everything we ate. Dragonlady and the sashimi with garlic was our favorite!
