Shinsei Restaurant is a Traditional Sushi Bar with a Pan-Asian kitchen.

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.

Our food is electrifying. But not so unexpected that you won’t be able to decipher the menu or recognize your favorite dish. Never boring, yet comforting at the same time. Our signature poppers, for instance, are a sophisticated mix of late night bar food and sumptuous finger food with a distinctly Asian flair.

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!

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.

Amazing food with an amazing atmosphere. You can’t go wrong with the Shinsei Sashimi, Crispy Rock Shrimp, or the Short Rib Potstickers. For dessert, we wanted a taste of everything so we had the cotton candy, pumpkin bread pudding, and the chocolate cake spring rolls (must try!)

We had never been there until last weekend and have been there again during the week.
Absolutely fantastic! Everything we ordered was delicious. Outstanding service this includes the waitress and the very sweet hostesses ! Even Caleb the manager worked with me helping us get a earlier reservation. Cant wait to go back very soon!

Had high expectations based on reviews but was very disappointed. Inattentive rude wait staff including hostesses which were non welcoming. Food delivery was slow. Cramped quarters. The only good part was the food but not good enough to go back.

Had not been in a couple of years, but they have not skipped a beat. Still great food and wonderful service. Of special note are the BBQ ribs, swordfish, miso cod and chefs selection of sashimi. Wonderful business dinner that impressed my guests.

We sat at the main bar, very high traffic area.
For starters we ordered the modern seaweed salad, it was okay. For sashimi we ordered the Demesy, Hawaiian & cured salmon (my favorite-spicy). I can’t say I was wowed by the fish, but overall everything was average.

After 12 years in a city known for its exceedingly competitive restaurant environment, Shinsei continues to be a local favorite and the go-to restaurant for an exceptional experience....food, drinks, setting. The sushi is the best in DFW, but the creative menu doesn’t stop with hand rolls and sashimi. The service is exceptional and the owners are always on-site to make sure the experience of their guests exceeds expectations.

Very nice decor. Server Krissy was outstanding. The food was imaginative, fresh and tasty. Some nice cocktail choices and the Sake options were also good. Nice place.
