Best Sushi in Downtown Las Vegas

If you haven’t checked out the restaurant scene in downtown Las Vegas in a while, you’re definitely missing out. It’s time to make your way to Fremont Street for a dining refresh—especially for sushi.

Got a hankering for some sushi in downtown Las Vegas? Here are our top picks to add to your favorite Las Vegas restaurants list.

1. Red Asian Cuisine at Golden Nugget

129 E. Fremont St.

Main Floor at Golden Nugget

Las Vegas, NV 89101

Red Sushi roll
Yes, there’s something for you, even if you’re not a sushi person.

While the Golden Nugget is well known for its award-winning pool that features a 200,000 shark tank and aquarium slide, don’t underestimate the dining options at this downtown casino. For example, Red Asian Cuisine is one of the best places to get fresh fish and tasty sushi rolls in Sin City. Conveniently located on the main floor of Golden Nugget, it’s the perfect place to stop for a quick bite and excellent service.

Outside of some of our sushi roll favorites, including the Firecracker Roll and Hamachi Jalapeno Roll, Red also offers an epic happy hour from 4:00pm to 6:00pm every day! You can get discounts on select rolls, appetizers, beer, and sake. Then, after your amazing meal, you’re just steps away from the heart of Fremont Street, where all the action happens.

Our Recommendation: Try the Red Shiso Roll and Saketini for a crisp and refreshing addition to your meal.

2. The Pepper Club by Todd English

921 S. Main St.

Las Vegas, NV 89101

Internationally renowned culinary artist Todd English recently opened The English Hotel in the eclectic Las Vegas Arts District in downtown, and one of the best parts about it is The Pepper Club. The Michelin Star-winning chef features some of the best sushi and Japanese-inspired cuisine you’ll find anywhere in the city at his swanky, new restaurant.

In addition to creative fried rice dishes, savory sides, and flavor-packed entrees, the star of the show at The Pepper Club is sushi. The menu is packed with everything you could possibly want when you get that craving. From nigiri to sashimi and specialty rolls to Omakase, dig in for a real downtown Las Vegas treat at The Pepper Club.

Our Recommendation: You will never regret ordering the Cover Girl roll, fresh Uni, or the fresh caviar platter.

4. YU-OR-MI Sushi Bar

100 E California St.

Las Vegas, NV 89104

Sushi. Whiskey. Sake. Those are the three specialties you’ll find at YU-OR-MI Sushi Bar in downtown Las Vegas. Located in the Arts District, this stylish restaurant takes an artistic approach to Japanese cuisine by pairing mouth-watering dishes with premium sakes and Japanese whiskey selections.

The trendy white brick walls, black-and-white samurai-inspired portraits on the walls, and the bright flavors of the food set the tone for an intimate dining experience Las Vegas locals have come to love. And if you have selective eaters in your group, YU-OR-MI offers vegetarian, vegan, and mocktail options!

Our Recommendation: Why not indulge in fine Japanese whiskey? Pair the Little Toki Oh cocktail with the YU-OR-MI roll for a meal you can’t get anywhere else.

5. Sliced Sushi at Vegas Test Kitchen

1020 Fremont St.

Ste. 120

Las Vegas, NV 89101

Haven’t heard of the Vegas Test Kitchen? Get ready to have your culinary mind blown. The VTK bar and downtown food hall features some of the best rotating chefs and mixologists for inspired weekly menus, fantastic global cuisine, and the ideal location for any event or celebration.

Sliced Sushi is one of the resident dining options in the shared space that offers an updated menu of the freshest sushi selections every week. With chefs trying out their new concepts at VTK, you’re in for a treat and the exclusive experience of sampling new plates before they hit a chef’s restaurant menu.

Our Recommendation: With rotating menu options, you can’t go wrong with whatever the chefs choose to feature that week. But don’t forget to snag a specialty cocktail to wash it down!

Honorable Mention: Triple 7 Restaurant at Main Street Station

200 N. Main St.

Main Floor at Main Street Station

Las Vegas, NV 89101

Although Triple 7 at Main Street Station isn’t exactly a sushi restaurant, we had to include an honorable mention for its killer poke menu options. What is poke? Poke is a Native Hawaiian dish made of diced raw fish, commonly Ahi tuna. The fish is then served over rice or with vegetables and covered in a tangy soy sauce-based marinade.

So, now that you know what poke is, let’s get to their poke menu. You have your choice of spicy ahi or an ahi poke bowl for something more traditional. Otherwise, you can go with a more playful option, such as poke nachos! We promise it will be packed with the best poke flavors no matter what you decide.

Our Recommendation: We know ahi is the standard for poke, but we suggest branching out with the surimi crab poke or sesame tako (octopus) poke.
