Great Food and a Great Time!
Excellent restaurant! The coconut fried chicken tenders are delicious and something everyone should try. The rest of the food was also very tasty. The service and ambiance are also great. I had heard exceptional things about Shinsei and I was not disappointed. I am glad I was able to dine there while visiting Dallas.

Server (Alyssa) was wonderful
Server (Alyssa) was wonderful and very chatty and helpful. Food is always wonderful there. Check in people can be a little stiff - overall though - a great place - one of the best restaurants in Dallas.

Great food and fun place
We went to Shinsei for our anniversary. Food was terrific...and the blood orange margarita is a must. The only complaint was that it took about 5 to 8 mins for the server to greet us and take our drink order. After that though, she was very attentive and the service matched the quality of the food... Which was outstanding.

A Nice Evening Out
We went to Shinsei to celebrate a friend's birthday and couldn't have had a better experience. The restaurant was so accommodating to our party. The service was top notch and our waiter was patient and and made recommendations. Our food came out to us in a fair amount of time even though the place was full. The food was really nicely prepared and reasonably priced.

Always a great experience
Lynae and her team create a culinary feast. The sushi and sashimi are inventive as are the appetizers. The entrees like the tenderloin and cod are prepared to perfection. Service is excellent

Recently enjoyed a meal with four others here. Initial impression was that bar area was very dark, but when we were shown to our table were pleasantly surprised at the nice natural light. This restaurant is vibrant and later on weekends the bar is a party, but food was excellent as was the service, and we had a great dinner.

The food was delicious and
The food was delicious and eclectic however VERY PRICEY! I have eaten at many sushi restaurants and felt that dinner for 2 at $175 was over the top. The food was good but the price will unfortunately keep me away.

Shinsei was recommended by a close friend that understands my passion for sushi and good food. The exterior of the restaurant is a bit misleading, but upon entry it becomes very clear that a hidden gem has been discovered. The ambiance and service were great. The sushi was fresh and the Enrique Roll was a pleasant surprise as it is wrapped in cucumber - great for a hot summer day. We will definitely be back.

Quality Service & Quality Food
Whether you want Sushi or perhaps a pan-Asian style menu, Shinsei continues to be among the best restuarants in Dallas. They have a very steady adoring crowd that comes often. The sushi is excellent and the Black Cod from the menu might just be the best piece of fish in Dallas. A great restaurant with great service and very knowledgeable waiters and waitreses. We return often.

The place is extremely comfortable,; like dining in your great home in the mountains but with a contemporary touch. We were a party of four and enjoyed 3 courses. Each dish was delicious and well presented. A new favorite restaurant .

My second visit to this restaurat
My second visit to this restaurat in as many visits to Dallas. Food was great as always! I recommend Shinshei to those who want an different twist on Asian dishes. I absolute love the Cotton Candy for dessert and was thrilled to learn that the flavors changed since my last visit. I will go back when in Dallas again.

This restaurant is characterized as a neighborhood hangout by the employees but certainly must attract patrons from all over Dallas. We were just passing through town and found it on Open Table. Great food and service with an energetic atmosphere on a weekend night. We had both sushi and the scallops from the substantial non-sushi menu and both were excellent. Great knowledgable bartender. Not recommended for children. Casual (mostly jeans) yet upscale dressed clientele ranging from 20's to 50's.
