For over 37 years, Sushi Den has been regarded as one of the premiere sushi and Japanese restaurants in the United States. Located in the historic Old South Pearl St. neighborhood in the heart of Denver, CO, the restaurant delivers consistently excellent cuisine made from the finest ingredients from around the world.

Master Chef Toshi Kizaki, the visionary behind Sushi Den, continually raises the bar & sets the standard for the restaurant’s high quality cuisine. Youngest brother, Koichi, lives in southern Japan where he makes daily trips to the fish market to purchase fish for the restaurant. The fish is dry iced and reaches the restaurant within 24 hours. Sushi Den’s mission is to maintain one of the nation’s top sushi restaurants through fresh ingredients, innovative, healthy dishes and exceptional service.

We utilize available seating at both Izakaya Den, our sister restaurant next door, and Sushi Den for all reservations through the Sushi Den portal on

    Despite living in New York City, which is generally reputed to have some of the best restaurants in the country if not the world, I can honestly say that Sushi Dan has consistently, and this includes tonight, provided one of the best overall dining experiences I have been privileged to enjoy.

    It’s been a number of years since I have been to Sushi Den, I can’t believe how LOUD it was. It’s clearly kind of a younger person atmosphere. The fish was incredibly fresh and delicious, but I have to say that the rice for the sushi wasn’t the best. I know the proprietors take great pains to ensure the fish is super fresh, and the staff was really great, but if I come back, it would be on a less busy night.

    in my mind, this is one of the best and most affordable restaurants for truly good food in Denver. The freshness of the food and the combinations of flavor are simply incomparable. The food an drink for two of us with two large Saki was $96. for this quality of food that is unbelievable try it will not be disappointed
