The Essential Austin Sushi Restaurants

Oh so fresh Japanese fish

Sushi from Uchi
| Logan Crable/Uchi [Official]

Austin’s sushi game is very strong, despite being in a landlocked city. Look no further than award-winning chef Tyson Cole and his nationally-recognized sibling spots Uchi and Uchiko. The Japanese specialty is done right in town, with sushi, sashimi, nigiri, chirashi bowls, and even rolls aplenty.

Here are Austin’s best sushi restaurants, which include the traditional and relocated Musashino, which served as the training grounds for many of the city’s top chefs, strong offerings from trailer-turned-restaurant Kome, the fun vibes of conveyor belt sushi spot Kura Revolving Sushi, and many more. This update includes downtown Pacific-Asian restaurant She’s Not Here.

For more fish, check out Austin’s best bets for seafood restaurants and poke.

Austin, TX 78752

Yes, it’s gimmicky — pieces of fish and other Japanese dishes zooming by on conveyor belts — but that’s part of the fun of the Austin location of the renamed chain (formerly known as Kula Revolving Sushi Bar). Rack up 15 plates of food for sushi-themed prizes.

Owners of the popular but defunct Sushi A-Go-Go turned the trailer into Kome, which serves up unique rolls, like the ode to the state Texas Surf and Turf with shrimp tempura and hanger steak, traditional maki, and hand-pressed sushi. The traditional offerings are stellar as is the lunch-time chirashi bowl. There’s a downtown outpost within Fareground at Congress Avenue with Ni-Kome.
