It’s to be expected that a city so close to the gulf coast would have no shortage of excellent fresh fish, including sushi. From national chains to locally-owned establishments, Clutch City is home to some must-try sushi restaurants. If you need a nigiri fix or want to try some creative rolls, these spots downtown for sushi in Houston won’t leave you disappointed:

Fukuoka Sushi Bar & Grill

Fukuoka Sushi Bar & Grill might be new but it’s already become a Clutch City favorite. The Midtown sushi bar looks just like one you would find in Japan, complete with authentic decorations and cubbies underneath your chair to store your personal belongings while you eat.

Kura Revolving Sushi Bar

If you enjoy sushi, you have to experience a restaurant that serves their dishes via a conveyor belt. At Kura Revolving Sushi Bar, the food moves past you and you grab what you want. If you want something that you’re not seeing on the conveyor belt, you can order it on their touchscreen menu and it’ll be made fresh for you.


If you can snag a reservation, this Japanese restaurant by chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro has become a national favorite for high-quality sushi. It’s the 39th Nobu open up around the world and when you try it, you’ll learn why so many celebrities are obsessed with their food.


If you’re looking for Instagram-worthy rolls, Kuu is the place for you. Kuu’s chef Adison Lee was trained at Nobu and is known for his beautifully plated dishes. “Kuu” means the art of eating. When you sit down at one of their yakisugi wood tables, you’ll understand why so many foodies love Kuu.
