Nobu is the way to go. It is probably the most pricey out of all the sushi in that town, at least of the ones I have been to but worth it. The one at MGM looked like it would be good, but it really wasn't. IMO

How much is a roll at Nobu? Is it really worth it? For whatever reason, food is one thing that I usually go cheap on and try to save money.

89,865 and counting

Didn't make my reservations at Nobu this trip due to intoxication but ate at Little Buddha (Palms) which was very good and reasonably priced. Kobe NY Strip was amazing and George's Lobster rolls were the best sushi I've ever had. We had our fill of Sushi and each had an entree and the total was just over $50 a man including tip.. definitely make more of an effort to make it to Nobu next trip although the people I've talked to before this thread all suggested Okada>Nobu.

Don't recall the name of the place, but the sushi restaurant at Mandalay Bay was pretty good and not overly priced. I'd recommend it.

Does Vegas' location hamper it's ability to produce top-shelf sushi?

Myth: Sushi is "better" never frozen and therefore better at the coasts.

Truth: Almost ALL sushi consumed anywhere on the world has been frozen for a minimum of 48 hours to kill parasites and disease causing germs. It is a requirement in this country.

Also most catch is "flash frozen" by the fishing boats which are out for days or even weeks at a time.

I've been to the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo and seen the massive frozen Tuna carcasses being parted out with chain and band saws before heading to the best sushi restaurants on the planet. Pretty cool.

Very good to know. That's a bit of a buzz kill.
