Loving sushi is never a cliché. There’s too much history and variety in the dishes to ever consider it a mainstream meal choice.
There’s more to good quality sushi than the ever-popular California roll. Sashimi, nigiri and hand rolls are all on the roster of any good sushi spot, but the creativity of the chefs and originality keep people coming back for more.
Read on for our favorite selections of delicious sushi on the Strip—and where to find them.
