Shinsei Restaurant - Traditional Sushi / Contemporary Asian Kitchen

Due to Covid 19, Please call the restaurant if our reservations are full.

We are manually entering some in order to maintain our lower occupancy

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.

But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

    My husband and I had been so impressed when we dined at Shinsei on NYE that he requested a return visit for his birthday. Our meal totally lived up to our memories. The Blood Orange cocktail was fantastic and my husband tried a new beer from Shinsei's selections. We tried the short rib potstickers and they were the best potstickers I've ever had; the dumplings were perfectly crispy without being greasy and the short rib filling was rich and decadent. My husband satisfied his craving for the sword fish and I enjoyed the show as it was served in a hot skillet and topped with garlic butter and lemon tableside. I loved my hoisin baby-back ribs, once again falling off the bone and covered in a delicous sauce. We accompanied our entrees with the tempura green beans and scallion mashed potatoes, both excellent. And of course a birthday is not complete without a dessert so we tried the banana parfait. The bruleed bananas were an elegant topper on this upscale take on banana pudding. Our server, Sharla, was fantastic and made our night feel very special. Shinsei is definitely one of our favorite restaurants and we will be back for another scrumptious meal soon!

    This is our favorite restaurant. Dine at Shinsei 4 times per month. The food is always excellent. Prepared perfectly. The biggest reason it is our favorite restaurant is because of Tammy!! She is incredible and makes every experience wonderful! This is the most delightful woman and always has a ready smile and contagious laugh! I hope this review is shared with Tammy. She deserves to know how she brightens her customers day!

    First time here. Same owners as Lovers Seafood/Market. High expectations as that place is great. Service was attentive and professional and friendly. Good Old Fashioned but at $20....maybe not so much. Had a good bottle of wine at a good price. Food: the ribs and fried rice were awesome. Sushi roll fantastic. Would come again just for the pork dumplings! Would eat everything on this menu it's that kind of place.

    The food is amazing! Definitely try the sushi rolls and one of the bigger plate entrees. I had the beef tenderloin and it had amazing flavor. It was a bit dark in the restaurant but other than that the ambiance was great.
