Designed by Yabu Pushelberg, Shibuya has a dazzling décor. This glass-enclosed restaurant houses three distinct dining areas, a marble sushi bar, a teppan room and an a la carte area. The sushi bar is located just inside the entrance and is backed by video screens. For dramatic effect, the lights behind the sushi bar change color throughout the night. The highlights of the teppan room are its stainless-steel canopy and granite-bordered teppan tables. The central communal table in this room can seat 30 diners at a time. The main room or a la carte area consists of semi-private dining spaces separated with glass screens.

We were at Shibuya for dinner. All types of clientele were present at that time. We saw people dressed in everything, from training suits to suit and ties. Personally I would feel more comfortable dressed up a bit with at least nice jeans and a dressy shirt. As we had made reservations in advance, we were promptly seated and handed the menu. The menu had a nice selection of sushi, Teppan and a la carte specialties along with a strong sake list. In fact, it’s said that Shibuya restaurant is supposed to have the biggest selection of sake in North America.

We started our dinner with the garlic edamame which in hindsight was not the best choice for starters. It didn’t taste as good as it sounded. We followed it up with Tuna, Salmon and Yellowtail sashimi. These were stellar and had to be some of the best sashimi we've ever had in Las Vegas. We also had Uni (sea urchin) which just has to be extremely fresh to be any good (in my opinion anyhow) and this must have been fresh because it was extremely good!

We also ordered Salmon Sake Sashimi and Mackerel Saba Sashimi along with specialty rolls Shibuya and Barachirachi. The Shibuya Roll was made of Soft Shell Crab and Jalapeño and was topped with Spicy Shibuya Roll Albacore and Ponzu Scallions. The Barachirachi consisted of pressed sushi rice topped with Chef’s Choice Seafood Mix Tobiko and Wasabi Aioli. Both the sashimi and the specialty rolls were ultra fresh and had an amazing taste.

For dessert we had Kinaco Tiramisu made of Espresso Coffee, Kuromitsu Syrup, Kinaco Ice Cream and Cappuccino Foam. After tasting this tiramisu we were just happy that we had saved some room for dessert. It was that good. We also tried Gungashizuku sake. Though it was nice, I really don’t know whether it was worth the $165 price tag.

Service was very good throughout the meal. Ryan, our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and did a fine job of making us feel welcomed. Prices were reasonable for Las Vegas standards with the Sashimi ranging between $11 and $12 for three decent sized pieces.

Overall, Shibuya is a super neat and swanky place that serves tasty sushi and sashimi at reasonable prices (for Las Vegas). We have been to a number of sushi restaurants in Las Vegas and this place easily ranks in the top of our list. This restaurant is definitely a great spot for trying some fantastic modern Japanese cuisine. Our rating for Shibuya is Bombastic.
