Shinsei Restaurant - Traditional Sushi / Contemporary Asian Kitchen

Due to Covid 19, Please call the restaurant if our reservations are full.
Masks are required by the City of Dallas.
We are manually entering some in order to maintain our lower occupancy

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.

    This is our favorite restaurant. Dine at Shinsei 4 times per month. The food is always excellent. Prepared perfectly. The biggest reason it is our favorite restaurant is because of Tammy!! She is incredible and makes every experience wonderful! This is the most delightful woman and always has a ready smile and contagious laugh! I hope this review is shared with Tammy. She deserves to know how she brightens her customers day!

    First time here. Same owners as Lovers Seafood/Market. High expectations as that place is great. Service was attentive and professional and friendly. Good Old Fashioned but at $20....maybe not so much. Had a good bottle of wine at a good price. Food: the ribs and fried rice were awesome. Sushi roll fantastic. Would come again just for the pork dumplings! Would eat everything on this menu it's that kind of place.

    The food is amazing! Definitely try the sushi rolls and one of the bigger plate entrees. I had the beef tenderloin and it had amazing flavor. It was a bit dark in the restaurant but other than that the ambiance was great.

    As usual, Shara never disappoints. Very caring and attentive and makes us feel at home. She is very well liked by guests as evident and my family adores her. Hard working, sweet and professional! The noise is moderate to loud but I guess that is good sometimes! The food is excellent. The steady quality is something we appreciate a lot. Thank you!

    The sushi was very good. Our service was excellent, however, it should have been as the Sushi was premium price plus. Would I go again? Maybe, but I would not be regular.

    Shinsei used to be one of our favorites, but the food has changed unfortunately…not sure if there is a new chef, or what but the last two times we have eaten here, the food is not up to the level it once was. We left disappointed
