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.

10/10 would recommend this restaurant!
Food was spectacular and Teddy did a great job taking care of us!
Great Sushi / Sashimi restaurant. The menu selections are divergent and plentiful, and for those who are carb-intolerant they make riceless rolls for about any roll on the menu (Riceless Rainbow Roll was excellent). Sashimi is generally $16 for five pieces (I prefer Salmon which was great), TORO is market price. Wine by the bottle is half off on Monday hence our go-to night. Service (both from the wait staff to the chefs) was top-notch - no complaints whatsoever. Price is around $$$, for myself low priced ($-$$) Sashimi is a bit worrisome so I prefer more upscale. Only recommendation to Shinsei: refrigerate your Sushi/Sashimi plates.
Super fresh. Peking Duck was perfect! Can’t wait to get back!
The menu and the interiors can both use a refresh. Won't be back.
1/2 price bottles of wine on Monday is a great offer.
Everything was prefect! We weren’t disappointed.
What an amazing sashimi and sushi experience in Dallas!! Excellent selection and amazing dishes from the executive chef!!!
Food and service were great!
Shinsei never disappoints. They have great service and the food was top quality. Our service was attentive and made excellent recommendations to my date that had never been there before.
Great cocktails and food plus excellent wine list are essential and fully accomplished at Shinsei. The extra secret sauce is that the service is always tailored to what each diner is looking for. Our group was enjoying relaxed drinks and sushi and grazing while chatting to catch up, and the family at the table next to us was a little more mission-oriented for dinner while another nearby table had a couple on a date. The servers seemed to instinctively know how to pace the orders, the deliveries, etc so each table had exactly what they needed. As always, a terrific evening at Shinsei!
Solid as always. Pressed rolls on point.
I've been to dinner here multiple times over the last several years and I have never had anything less than a fantastic experience.
I was celebrating one of my girlfriends’ birthday. The food was amazing and our server, Tammy Schupbach, was fantastic! She was extremely accommodating and friendly!
Server was horrendous. The manager did compensate for the poor service which was nice.
The food was great as always. Anna was very attentive! We will ask for her again!
We eat out a lot and Shinsei is at the top of our list of favorites. Hands down a favorite
Everything was wonderful with the exception of the noise level...something has to be done!
You have to order de Dragon Lady, so so delicious
I enjoyed everything about this place! Quick and friendly service, great location, outstanding food and plenty of delicious drinks to choose from. Would definitely recommend any time of day, any day of the week!
Wonderful experience with fantastic food. I ordered the rock shrimp and curry sashimi for apps (both outstanding) and the Dragon lady roll - one of my all time favorite rolls. The crispy rice is also a must. We had great service and were seated right away when we showed up for our reservation!
Very loud. The quality of the food has diminished.
Food is consistently great and is our favorite sushi restaurant in Dallas.
Had a great time there!!! Service was outstanding and the atmosphere was great!
We celebrated my twins 13 birthday. They loved it.
Great food and nice vibe but extremely loud.
The food , atmosphere and wait staff where spectacular 😊😊
Absolutely FABULOUS!!!!!! Best restaurant in dallas!!!!! Don’t forget the cotton candy !!!!! Yummmmm
People were packed on top of each other during a pandemic. Uncomfortable and disrespectful.
Great food! We always enjoy coming here!
Excellent food and service. The centerpiece on the table is beautiful which is a nice welcome when seated. We had a party of 7 and were seated at a nice big table. We all really enjoyed our meals, shared appetizers and drinks from the bar.
Great as usual!
The partially open "outdoor" area was well appointed - we had a comfortable small booth. Service was fast and friendly. The food was great as always!
The seaweed sald an sushi rolls were amazing.it worth the money.
Simply the best sushi in Dallas
Great service! The upstairs is super fun and feels VIP-like!
Love love love Shinsei! The food and service are always incredible. If you have the chance to get a table, GO!
While the service and atmosphere is always fantastic at Shinsei, I'm starting to notice a pattern at our favorite restaurants since COVID and that is the food quality has recognizably diminished. My hypothesis is that because the restaurants have lost so much money over the past year, they are now trying to make up their profits by buying lower quality foods. But, they should ALL know that the consumer is much more discriminating than they think. If the food quality doesn't improve significantly, back up to pre-Covid levels, many of these restaurants including Shinsei will be out of business quickly.
Good food and great service. We felt the menu was a little difficult to understand.
What an absolutely gem. This was our first night out since the pandemic started and it was everything we could have hoped for. The food was incredible (definitely try the pressed sushi) and the service friendly while also keeping distant. The Demesy may be the best bite of food I’ve ever had- perfection.
