Shinsei Restaurant - Traditional Sushi / Contemporary 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.

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.

    I enjoyed the experience overall. Service was really good. We ordered the crispy rice tuna, the dragon lady salmon and tuna roll, shrimp dumplings, grilled oysters. All very good. We got the bread pudding for dessert but I wasn’t really impressed with it. The blood orange cocktail was ok. My husband’s old fashion was great. I would go back.

    From checking in to the staff taking our order everybody was really nice. We had the volcano and livers lane sushi. It was excellent. The spicy edamame was really good. If you don’t eat a lot of Chile don’t order it as you won’t enjoy it we had the bread pudding for dessert. It was very very good. We only had 1 dessert for the 4 of us and it was just the right amount. I would definitively go back. Make sure you make reservations as the place was very busy (that didn’t compromised the service). Congratulations to the manager as everybody seem to be enjoying their job and interaction with clients.

    I have eaten at Shinsei 20+ times. This past time made me wonder if I will ever be back -- I understand Friday night is one of the most busy times to enjoy this restaurant but the service was so sub par I don't know how to justify coming here again! Food is great, but we waited for drinks 30 minutes after we sat down at our table. We waited 20 minutes to be seated when we had a reservation! There was a fan directly over our table and I had to try to enjoy the chaotic dinner with a freezing cold blast of wind over me the entire meal. It was just awful in every respect. I say that as someone who has loved this restaurant over the years and wishes it would all be perfect. Come here during the week, do not bother on weekends.

    When a good friend who just moved to town asked about great spots in Dallas, Shinsei immediately came to mind. To be transparent, I worked at Shinsei as a hostess back in 2014, and enjoyed my time there immensely. A top notch team that always delivers

    Had a GREAT birthday dinner last night. Jenny at the bar, is OUTSTANDING! Really great, creative drinks and super service. Seriously great sushi, very creative and so tasty! Seared Salmon had the best flavor. I never get here often enough, and it is so good. Can't recommend enough, a great go to restaurant!

    Usually a favorite of ours - however the last two times we have eaten here we have left disappointed - especially for the price. We went last night for my sons birthday - and the food was nowhere near where it used to be. Fried rice was missing something, swordfish was just not good and everything else just fair. Service, as always, fantastic, although - no one seemed to notice the half eaten dinners. There are better options in Dallas these days - maybe they need a few months to get back to their roots.

    Waiter was overly busy, didn’t pay attention or perhaps couldn’t even hear us speak, food has no flavor (grilled oysters, fried Brussels sprouts) did not receive 2 full sushi roll orders we asked to have packaged to go and paid for. I do not recommend this place.

    We were celebrating a special occasion last night and had told Shinsei. At the end of the evening our waiter said he wished that he had been told as he would have done something special. Because we were with another couple, we did not say too much as we had already communicated that earlier. Our food service was fairly slow last night, but it tasted delicious. On multiple occasions, our server apologized for the slow sushi service. Overall, it was a good experience.

    We sat in the "outdoor" space which is enclosed but with higher ceiling and more spaced out tables means its quieter, feels less crowded and more intimate. Our server, Shara, was phenomenally good!
