What People Are Saying About Us…

I believe our waiter’s name was Nate. He was attentive without hovering. If you have never been here I would recommend it. Here you can cook your own meat and veggies on a gas grill, yakiniku. When I lived in Japan this is something you did with friends for an evening. Talking, drinking and cooking meat.  For me, it tasted of memories and I would come back again. I felt I got my money’s worth and I am looking forward to my next visit.

At Sushi Japan, in west Omaha, sushi chef Zach Reis serves omakase differently. Instead of one large platter covered with rolls and fish delivered all at once, Reis serves it at the restaurant’s sushi bar, where different courses come on small plates.

Diners watch him craft each dish, and when he’s done, he passes the plate over the top of a glass case filled with ingredients. As diners finish, they put their plate back on the glass, and he replaces it with the next course. The pace is leisurely and casual, and Reis welcomes banter and questions about the food.

Originally from Omaha, now reside in Denver. My family and I have been coming to Sushi Japan ever since I can remember (15+ years).. I eat sushi all around the country and this place is hands down the BEST and FRESHEST I’ve ever had! ALWAYS have to come get my fix when I’m back in town. Zach & Hugo are great sushi chefs & create beautiful plates- love sitting at the bar and talking to them during dinner. Family owned, Mizuno is the sweetest!



My first time at this restaurant and I’m already in love. The place doesn’t seem like much from the outside, but once inside it is beautifully decorated, spacious, and provides a diverse selection of different seating layouts. The staff was amazingly friendly and happy and explained all the different menu specials and options. We sat at the bar and chatted with the sushi chef, he was very nice and explained all the delicacies he was working with. The menu was huge! And everything we ate was delicious, filling, and amazingly priced! I will be returning soon and often!!
