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.

The himachi with truffles is divine - can’t recall the exact name of the dish and the server stated that it is not unusual part of the menu but I wish it was!
Shinsei delivers again! Wonderful date night with fabulous food!
Great sushi that is a bit pricey. Ambience was nice for a date night with lots of energy throughout the place.
LOVE this restaurant, and they have an awesome patio! We ordered many dishes like the Brussels sprouts, shrimp tempura, and the Shinsei yellowtail. SO delicious and the table setting, lighting, and ambiance make it a class act place. Wonderful cocktails too!
Except for the delicious, French Pinot Noir, our waitress Natalie made all of our selections, and she chose well: tuna, salmon, oysters, and steak. Meticulous plating. Creative designs. Flavorful and fresh tastes. At a place like this, your particular selection may not matter, as I’m guessing it’s all exceptional. But, she gave us a culinary experience that we would not have had with our own selections. Thank you Natalie!
Super delicious food. Worth every dollar
Great food, strong drinks, and great service. Francisco is wonderful!
The evening/morning after was difficult as sodium levels high and reflux occurred. Do you provide "Low Sodium" etc. adjustments to your food. Green bean tempura was heavily coated - a little less to tase both tempura and bean crunch. Appetizer short rib pods were Great; The dinner Short Ribs very fatty and the noodles very oily/greasy = combo was a bit much. OUR SERVER TAMMY WAS FANTASTIC...Thank you Tammy.
Almost always a great experience! Definitely one of the top
sushi restaurants in Dallas
Food is always great and Tammy is the best!!
Everything was pretty good; the food, the service and the ambiance, my only complain would be the noise level that makes difficult to have a nice conversation without having to shout sometimes. Other than that everything was great, a great spot for very good Japanese contemporary food.
The best sushi!!! The staff were all so kind and friendly! Chrissy was our server and she made the best recommendations! Loved that the rolls were so different and tasted so fresh! The pressed sushi was our favorite. We will definitely be back!
Fun restaurant. Great food, drinks, atmosphere. Good looking people in a fun relaxing environment!
Madison is an amazing server! She helped make my dining experience with my daughters the best. She’s very knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommend.
Service was great!! From hostess to chef! Every wish was granted.
Love the food here! Lots of vegetarians options. Great decor and atmosphere!
Dined at Shinsei for the first time and highly recommend. We sat at the counter as those were the only seats available for our reservation time and very much enjoyed watching the chefs make the sushi/sashimi. The Grilled Scottish Salmon was excellent as was the Sushi Special - Truffled Salmon and Yellowtail Rice Paper Roll topped with Spicy Tuna and Ponzu! Highly recommend.
Amazing food very fresh, waiter very knowledgeable and attentive. Have us free dessert on the house for our anniversary. Amazing experience!
Food was excellent!! Tammy makes every meal special! She is an absolute delight! Shensei is our family’s favorite restaurant.
Had our anniversary here. Service was great and the food was delicious
Great as always!
Natalie was wonderful! The food was great and so was the service. I will definitely be back soon!
Food was delicious. Noise level was unbearable. Service could have been better
The food was fantastic and Shara, our waitress, was superb!!!
Ordered the house salad, fried rice, avocado roll, brussels sprouts, and the crispy rice. Everything was absolutely amazing and the food came out super quick. The only downside was our waiter was great, but after we got our food he seemed to have disappeared and we had to ask another server for our check.
Pro Tip: end the night with some sake bombs
Always enjoy the delicious food and great staff here!
The only place my husband will eat sushi - it's that good! We have never been disappointed in the food or the service. The downstairs is quite "cozy" so we prefer to be upstairs but the whole experience is exceptional wherever we sit.
everything was amazing but we all hated the tv in the lounge. next time we will ask for a table in dining room
Our waiter was very nice and attentive. The food and drinks were great. I will definitely be back!
Service was off tonight
Great servers and delicious food!!
Always a nice evening. We had out of town guests, who enjoyed also.
This used to be a great place for top notch food and a beautiful atmosphere to eat and converse with friends. I’ve been coming here for over 7 years. It still has the same great food but the atmosphere is gone. It’s turned into a pit-stop for bar hoppers on their way to the next location. Too loud to hear anyone in your party without yelling, making the whole experience unpleasant enough to skip your meal and ask for the check.
The absolute best!!!!! Love everything about this place !!
Shensai revisited.Had multiple sushi & whole fish MKT.
I vote best restaurante in Dallas.
Very loud, understaffed and waiter kept apologizing because he couldn’t provide the service he wanted to. Not the waiters fault. Foos was good but too loud to enjoy.
Great sushi as always
