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 table was ready! The server was beyond amazing and was not rushing throughout our experience. The food was so good and everything came out in a decent amount of time. This is a unique place, it can be great for a romantic evening, unwinding after work, or a social gathering.
I thought the restuarant was nice, the wait staff was great and they even surprised me with bring my boyfriend a birthday desert. I had no idea that was offered. Overall it was the best place to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.
Love the interest of Tami in our table... sweet person... Dragonlady aldo I plan to come back for again ! Súper positive experience !
We ordered the ahi/yellowtail sashimi and shrimp sushi rolls, followed by the steamed halibut and miso black cod. I felt the sauce with the halibut overpowered the fish, but otherwise it was very good. Everything else was excellent. One side note: there was no toilet paper in the restroom and the trash can was overflowing with used paper towels. While it was very noisy, overall we had a great experience and will certainly return, as well as recommend it to friends.
Never disappoints. Great service and great food! From the potstickers to the sushi to the fried banana. Wonderful!
Noise level is too loud to enjoy our meal. It seemed the louder people talked the louder music was. Horrible
Carter was an outstanding server! Food was delicious as always and ambiance is fun
Tammy was fabulous! Food, drinks, ambiance all great! Loved the Roxy Amelia cocktail!!
Shinsei is by far one of the best restaurants in Dallas without question. The service and food are incredible. Fabulous for early dinner with family or happy hour with friends. A favorite for hosting fabulous birthday dinners. The people at Shinsei are wonderful, the food is ALWAYS impeccable.
This is our favorite restaurant in Dallas. It is a must try for lovers of Asian fusion!
Always outstanding service and the food is superb! Always recommend-lovers roll is my favorite and the Demesey is cravable. Best sushi in Dallas!
Excellent food, service and ambiance! My new favorite place.
Food is always amazing! But, the last three times we have made a 6:30 reservation, we've been seated in the walkway between the entry and the stairs. Really takes away from the ambience.
Awesome , server Khalil can recommend without you needing to look at menu just tell him to keep it coming!
The food is always excellent. Tammy is such a bright spot and makes every dining experience fun!
Fantastic all around…food and service were outstanding!
Casey was super awesome!! Took care of me. The Salmon was a miss at the end, overcooked a little. The rice a bit sticky, mushy but the dessert was the highlight. Chocolate Spring Rolls😋 but the vibe is the best.
Outstanding food and service! Great ambiance and vibe.
It’s always the best food and experience!
Always great food !
food was very good, restaurant is VERY dark, staff friendly and helpful. A lovely night was had by my son and me.
Great food! Miso cod entrée was our favorite. Bread pudding is a delicious dessert. Pork potstickers also great. Actually all the food was great! It was packed, which I think is the norm. A little dark inside for my husband's liking, but I didn't mind it so much. Overall, we enjoyed our meal and will go back!
Fantastic experience as always
Our meal was excellent. The sushi is always very fresh.
Birthday for my 17yr old daughter…waitress was amazing!!!
Carter was excellent and took great care of us
I always feel comfortable. Tammy and all the staff are so welcoming.
Great service by Shara!!! Fantastic food at a great restaurant.
My husband and I had a great dinner at Shinsei. Our server, Teddy, was very knowledgeable and friendly - he helped us choose our items and we loved every one! We will definitely be back.
Loved it! Great food, great vibe! Amazing service
Teddy for server was absolutely amazing! I will request him every time! He made our experience unforgettable!!
Overall enjoyed and food is quite good though think pricing on large plates 10 - 20% too high. Excellent & thoughtful service. Fairly small dining rooms with close proximity to other diners. Pretty noisy though not to the point of distraction. Despite $300 check birthday was not acknowledged (mentioned when making reservation).
The pressed sushi roll is divine!
Ted our waiter was incredible and his suggestions
were amazing. It was the best experience we have had at the restaurant!!
We will be back and we will request Ted!
Fantastic food, long service wait times. Food made it worth it
The food was just ok for the price. I can get better sushi elsewhere. Our service was very poor. He finally came by just to take our menus and I was like “…can we order??”. Then they boxed up our leftovers together even though they were on separate plates for separate people. Just an overall underwhelming experience for the price.
Very much appreciated manager moving us upstairs since it was so loud in the bar area that we couldn’t hear. Made the dining experience much more enjoyable for us!
Just a return visit. All was great but the fried rice keeps us coming back.
