Top 6 Sushi Spots in Houston

For the past 12 years, we've provided a listing of the top sushi spots in Houston.  Year after year, the list changes...but a few faithful, quality spots remain.  This list is a rating of sushi quality.  This is not a rating of ambiance, parking access, customer service nor beverage menu.  This listing is a rating of sushi establishments, within the city of Houston (city limits), that consistently provide quality sushi.  Only four facts are considered:

1.  Temperature, quality, texture and flavor of the sushi rice.  Note:  Cold sushi rice is an automatic 'fail.'

2.  Quality and cut of the fish, vegetable and/or seafood.

3.  Portion size.

4.  Availability (size/options) of the sushi menu.

Sushi Miyagi

Sushi Miyagi

10600 Bellaire Blvd
Houston, TX 77072

Sushi Miyagi is a typical 'husband and wife' (or 'mom and pop') restaurant that's been a special place for many Houston-sushi lovers. They're only open for 4 days per week for one reason - the rest of the week is devoted to 'prep.'  Mr. and Mrs. Miyagi work at the hostess desk, dining area, sushi bar, and the kitchen.  Many people have been a big fan since they first opened.

Kata Robata

Kata Robata

3600 Kirby Dr
Houston, TX 77098

For many, Kata Robata is their favorite sushi restaurant in Houston in terms of quality and a nice spot to get lunch or dinner for special occasions. Their menu has a wide range of sushi, ramen, hot dishes, cold dishes, sushi rolls, omakase offerings, and great drinks. 


Teppay Japanese Restaurant

6516 Westheimer Rd
Houston, TX 77057


Serious sushi lovers come here when 'traditional sushi' is on their mind. The sushi is superb.  Chirashi is a common order for sushi fans, but most will comment that almost everything is worthy of a sample.

Houston, TX 77007

Known for their creative and high quality sushi and carefully-crafted nigiri combinations, this is the latest sushi spot to gain attention in Houston.  Dinner service only.
