FYI, I decided to try the sushi at Triple 7 inside Main Street Station over the weekend. My girlfriend and I ordered two basic sushi rolls, the spicy tuna and the shrimp. They were just OK, neither spectacular nor spectacularly bad. My biggest gripe was that the rice on the roll was not "correct." It was watery and a bit slimey, rather than plump and sticky. I gave it a 5 on a 1-10 scale and my dining partner gave it a 6.5. We did enjoy the oyster shooters with horseradish and cocktail sauce (only $1.50) and the cute sampler tray of microbrews. The party next to us ordered some burgers that looked amazing, so next time I'll try one of those.

Osaka on Sahara is the choice. A few years ago I read an article on the top 50 Sushi restaruants in the world. Of the top 50, 49 were in Japan and Osaka was the only one on the list not in Japan. I went there to eat that year and now I try and go every time I'm in Vegas.

It's a little bit of a dive. More for locals. Nothing fancy, no glitz like a Casino sushi bar, but man the food and soup is good and they have a ton of stuff on the menu. You could try a few things on each visit and it would take you 20 visits to try it all.

If you want real Sushi for a real Japanese style restaraunt, Osaka on Sahara is it.

I think the sushi in the Triple 7 is truly terrible. I didn't even mention it when the original blogger asked about sushi downtown. And I am not a true sushi snob, I can eat average rolls if in a pinch.

Truly awful sushi. The bar is nice, but get a prime rib instead.

Are there any casino buffets that have sushi sushi? (I don't mean rolls, I mean they have the fresh fish out there and will cut off pieces for you to use in sushi or sashimi). I have been to Rio but don't recall them having it unless I missed something. Man, I love that stuff.

Although I'm not as much of a sushi buff as some others, the last time I was in Vegas I went to a place called RAKU. It's at 5030 Spring Mountain Rd, #2 in Chinatown... about a 15 minute cab ride from the strip.

The friend I was with is a chef (owns her own catering business) and she told me that we "Absolutely MUST" go there. I looked at some reviews online and it seemed by all accounts that this really was the place to go. It's not a big place and it's a bit out of the way but the menu options were second to none. They also have quite an impressive Sake sampler. I recall that one of their claims to fame is their home made tofu.

Here's a link to the YELP reviews page for the place. http://www.yelp.com/biz/raku-las-vegas

If you are serious about sushi and are not content with the usual assembly line type joint, I highly recommend RAKU.

Osaka is the best sushi in Vegas in my opinion. They have three locations one out in Summerlin, one in Henderson and one right near the strip at Valley View and Sahara.
