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.
Way too loud to enjoy our meal with friends
Awesome as usual!
Great ambience and food. We come here often for date night or with friends.
Great vfm. Smart but casual. Only the risotto disappointed otherwise the food was really good. Loved it!
Tastey food good ambiance.
Tammy is a bright light as always. She makes every dinner a special experience, and we always look forward to coming back and not only having an outstanding meal, but also seeing Tammy. We love you shinsei!
Birthday with friends- food was so good! Literally the best and service is great and fast!
Had to wait 15 minutes for our table when we had a reservation.
Great for a girl’s night. Service was a little slow but the overall experience was great. Great food and drinks.
Dinner at Shinsei was superb. Great food and an upbeat vibe. Really enjoyed everything
Had a 9:30 reservation on Valentine’s Day but were able to be seated immediately at the sushi bar about 45 minutes early with great service
Had high expectations based on reviews but was very disappointed. Inattentive rude wait staff including hostesses which were non welcoming. Food delivery was slow. Cramped quarters. The only good part was the food but not good enough to go back.
No recognition of special occasion.
Daughters birthday they were very helpful with her gluten free requirements
Love it. Best sushi in dallas.
Food was great! Service was great! The restaurant was very loud due to several parties going on that night.
Had the best dining experience as always! Thank you so much for a wonderful night!
Had not been in a couple of years, but they have not skipped a beat. Still great food and wonderful service. Of special note are the BBQ ribs, swordfish, miso cod and chefs selection of sashimi. Wonderful business dinner that impressed my guests.
Food was amazing. Our server, Madeline was wonderful. But, we were surprised that they didn’t have real wasabi. They don’t even carry it! Wasabi 🍣🍣😍😍
Such great food! Unique stuff and well done. Our server was super sweet!
It was great food!! Amazing!
Never miss food and service. Always on point. Great sushi but also many other choices. Something for everyone.
Excellent as always! Service is great. Always look forward to dining at Shinei!
Fantastic!! Shinsei never disappoints! I had the whole snapper and it was fabulous. I’d move to Dallas just to be able to dine here often. Looking forward to my next visit.
We sat at the main bar, very high traffic area.
For starters we ordered the modern seaweed salad, it was okay. For sashimi we ordered the Demesy, Hawaiian & cured salmon (my favorite-spicy). I can’t say I was wowed by the fish, but overall everything was average.
Enjoyed a delicious meal at one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas!
Excellent food, especially the oysters. Server was very attentive and helpful with recommendations. Will be going back.
After 12 years in a city known for its exceedingly competitive restaurant environment, Shinsei continues to be a local favorite and the go-to restaurant for an exceptional experience....food, drinks, setting. The sushi is the best in DFW, but the creative menu doesn’t stop with hand rolls and sashimi. The service is exceptional and the owners are always on-site to make sure the experience of their guests exceeds expectations.
Very nice decor. Server Krissy was outstanding. The food was imaginative, fresh and tasty. Some nice cocktail choices and the Sake options were also good. Nice place.
Food and service were amazing. The food here never disappoints.
Date night and everything was amazing
best food and best service
Always delivers the best of the best!!! And Tammy (the best server) makes it all the better
Awesome food and service....Always consistent and always great! Get Tammy for your server and you can’t go wrong!!!!
Just celebrating holidays with old friends
Overall, great food. Service was good on a Friday night. Lots of energy, hard to hear across the table, but good go to place.
We’ve been going to Shinsei for years and always enjoyed it. This time, it took 20 minutes just to get a glass of wine and 30 to place our order. Really disappointing. For the prices at Shinsei, we expected better.
Made a reservation for standard seating but we were seated in the covered patio. I asked if there was an inside table available but there was not which was not a problem as the patio is nice, just a bit less atmosphere. Without me requesting him, the manager came over to apologize and offered our first round of drinks on the house. I told him that I appreciated the offer and that he did not need to do that but he insisted. Great example of high quality customer service - the manager took the initiative to take a minor inconvenience and turn it into a positive experience.
Great food! Unique menu options including super fresh sushi plus many cooked seafood items. Good wine list and great service.
