The Palazzo Las Vegas
3325 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
When you mix Brazilian, Peruvian and Japanese cuisine, there’s no way to avoid coming up with some of the flashiest sushi creations in town. That’s what SUSHISAMBA has done, and you’ll find the evidence in menu items like the Maya Roll (shrimp, avocado, tomato and tomatillo salsa) or the Neo Tokyo Roll, which combines yellowfin tuna with Peruvian aji panca peppers. Three different sushi assortments let diners taste a little bit of everything at a moderate price.

Once you spy the 25-foot-long bronze fish tail at the entrance to Yellowtail, you know you’re in for a unique experience. The sushi menu doesn’t disappoint, with unusual signature dishes like the Popping Spicy Crab roll and the Holy Mackerel roll served alongside all your old favorites. Dine on the patio and you can also enjoy a prime view of Bellagio’s famous fountain show during your meal.
Sen of Japan
8480 West Desert Inn, No. F1
Las Vegas, NV 89117
Sen of Japan, a longtime mainstay on the Vegas sushi scene, puts less emphasis on eye-popping d馗or and fancy fusion dishes and concentrates instead on serving fresh, authentic food in a pleasant atmosphere. But while the sushi here might not be flashy, it’s also far from boring. Tried-and-true favorites like salmon, mackerel and tuna are presented with a flair that rivals the finest gourmet restaurants, and specialties like snapper with orange miso and Kumamoto oysters look more like miniature works of art than mere chunks of raw fish.
Naked Fish’s Sushi and Grill
3945 South Durango Drive, Suite A6
Las Vegas, NV 89147
Naked Fish’s may be Japanese-owned and operated, but the vibe is more like modern Tokyo than some peaceful secluded village. Sushi offerings have a cutting-edge feel; items like Skip! Da Beat and Ulti-Oh! Mega sound more like rap lyrics than sushi rolls. That doesn’t stop the sushi from tasting delicious, though. Deep-fried rolls like Godzilla and Little Darling are just as filling as they are unusual, and nearly two dozen baked and tempura rolls round out the menu.
