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.

Everything was wonderful! We went for my son's birthday and they made it very special!
Amazing food and service! Always a good time at Shinsei.
Amazing food, solid service, but a dark and loud ambience!
We took our niece and her mom (my sister in law) to celebrate her graduation. We had a great table upstairs that was nicely spaced from other groups and not very loud up there. Everything we ordered came out quickly and beautifully and was delicious- truly we ate every bite. Our server was perfect.
Service and food were both great. The table we had for 4 was large and we felt socially distant enough from the other two tables in the room. Hand sanitizer on the table was a nice touch.
Always delicious and such a fun environment! Don't skip the oysters!
My absolute favorite sushi restaurant in Dallas -- well above all the others if you love lots of flavors, menu variety, and fresh fish.
Outstanding food and atmosphere. Exactly what we were expecting based on their website. Will repeatedly go back as well as recommend.
Absolutely the best sushi in Dallas, incredible service, and great ambience. Also, the way they have taken steps to keep the patrons safe is noticeable ... and certainly appreciated.
My friend had never been to Shin Sei. When I used to live in the area I would go 2-3 times a week.
First time I sat in the lounge/waiting area by the front door and had dinner. Everything was great!
Always one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas.
Our Saturday evening dinner experience was great. From the convenience of valet parking, to the cozy atmosphere, to the friendly and efficient wait staff and finally to a deliciously prepared meal, all our expectations were met or exceeded. We will be back soon.
Food was great and I enjoyed the ambiance and decor, wish the portions were larger but you can certainly taste the quality
Don’t sit couples in the bar
Favorite spot. Think food wAs not as great as usually is. But I’ll be back again for sure
We took our family for my daughter’s 12th birthday. GreAt to get out again and Shinsei was lovely!
The food was outstanding, but the service was slow. The ambiance - horrible. Too loud and seems cheap. For the same money you can get equally good sushi (or better) at several other shushing places nearby with much better ambiance and service.
The restaurant was spotless and we were greeted by all of the friendly staff.
Tammy guided us through the changes in menu.
Mike enjoyed the swordfish. I had (seriously) the freshest best tasting soft shell crab. That was a delightful surprise.
We enjoyed our evening.
Excellent food and service!
Always a favorite. This place is doing everything right with extra precautions to keep you safe and comfortable.
Thursday Duck Night is our favorite
Very safe and clean everyone wears masks and gloves
We really appreciate their service
This was our first visit to Shinsei and our first post pandemic foray to a dine in restaurant. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and I didn’t want to cook. The food was delicious! We tried several different things and shared everything. Of what we tried, our favorites were the pork buns, miso black cod, and Alfred roll but everything was wonderful. The challenge will be deciding what to order and what to reorder on our next visit. The staff was very conscientious about wearing masks and gloves and cleaning between customers. We felt totally safe. I highly recommend Shinsei! Please support them during this weird time!
It was great! In a time of necessary social distancing and extra measures to make people feel safe/comfortable, they did a good job. The food was delicious!
Great food and great service! I really love sitting at the bar! The bar tenders are fun and friendly.
As usual the quality of food was stellar and the staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
Great food and wonderful service.
Celebrating getting out of quarantine
First time out since Covid began, and we stayed for close to 3 hours! Food was fabulous (our two favorites are the fried rice and dragon lady pressed sushi) and service was great.
Johnny, Thank you so much!!! We are so happy to be open to the extent we are and have you back! Tracy & Lynae
Everything was amazing.
Food was amazing and the service was great!
Excellent experience. They did a wonderful job keeping everyone at least 6 ft apart (social distancing), most employees had their masks on properly (not all, some had their noses uncovered and delivered food or water). The shishito peppers were disappointing, we ordered blistered but they were only cooked until soft, there was no blistering. Everything else was delicious. Love the presses sushi!
Great stuff for first day open again
Great place in the neighborhood to eat early in a time of anxiety.
Our server was wonderful! We had a large party with a few small children and he could not have been nicer to them. The food was delicious!
My husband and I always love this place! Because their food is always consistently delicious, I took a leap of faith and tried sashimi here for the first time. I loved it. We love to order a bunch of little plates and share to get a variety of flavors and plates.
Brought my fiancé’s vendor from Arizona here. He is a world traveler and foodie. Shinsei is always one of my go-to’s. I love sharing it with friends. Always spot on!
I needed quality time w friends after my Dad passed away, so our dinner turned into a few hours of me crying and being indecisive. Our server was so patient and kind. Food was amazing as always. Loved seeing Casey back and visiting w Elvis. Shinsei will always be one of my top three go-to places.
This place is awesome - the food is amazing... the atmosphere is great... we stuffed ourselves on dumplings, brussel sprouts, and steamed buns- be sure to order the Thai fried rice... just go easy on the Vespers-
