Austin’s sushi game is very strong, despite being 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.

Austin’s best sushi restaurants range from casual to exclusive. Top spots include Musashino, which served as the training grounds for many of the city’s top chefs, strong offerings from trailer-turned-restaurant Kome, exclusive entertaining omakase spots, and many more. This update includes omakase bars Tsuke Edomae and Sushi Bar ATX.

As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; the latest data about the delta variant indicates that it may pose a low-to-moderate risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial transmission.

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.

6. Tsuke Edomae

It’s best to secure reservations the day for this tiny eight-seat sushi bar in Mueller they become available — unless there’s a rare opening in the waitlist. Tsuke Edomae is an immersive omakase experience from chef Michael Che (who previously operated $29 omakase spot Tsuke Honten), and at $79 per person, it’s still one of the most affordable options in town. Tsuke Edomae focuses on edomae-style sushi, which is largely unadorned. The restaurant is open for indoor dining only.
