Dont do Sushi Roku......not really in Ceasars, is in Ceasars Forum Shops so is literally a 20 minute walk to casino. Unless you are flying to vegas to eat sushi in a mall setting Sushi Roku is not your place. Some other fantastic Sushi alternatives are Mandalay Bay, Wynn.

Sashimi-

I've eaten at Shibuya a couple times.  It's good, but nothing special.  I love Japanese food/sushi too.  Honestly, I was just too lazy to walk out of the hotel for a better selection.  It's consistent but nothing spectacular.  If you must eat in the MGM and want a great dining experience, I recommend Craftsteak.

Ive been to vegas 7-8 times and never eaten sushj/sashimi which is crazy considering how much I love it but I cant resist metro wings and virtually live off them during my stays with the occasional visit to Vic@Anthony's.. But I am looking for a spectacular experience and will pass on Shibuya and Roku....Thx for the heads up everyone....BarMasa looking tasty....any other suggestions are welcome

This.  I mean of course it's not "bad", but I wasn't blown away by Shibuaya.  Honestly, I enjoy the casual Grand Wok at MGM just as much.  Craftsetak is the special restaurant at MGM.  I'm still in search of a great Japanese place in Vegas, haven't found it yet.

I had dinner last Friday at Blue Ribbon at the Cosmo and thought it was really good.  The scenery there inside and outside the place is worth the trip over.

If you are planning on spending $400 for sushi, Nobu in the Hard Rock Hotel. Simple. Research it,

Masa Takayama is, imho, the best.....his restaurant in NYC inspired me to be more aggressive in accepting the uniqueness that is Japanese cuisine....

Shaboo is where I would spend my hard-earned money......my earlier comment on BarMasa still remains (albeit for a lesser budget).

Thanks VegasGourmet. In reading over the previous posts, I obviously skipped over your earlier point, my apologies. After reading your response about BarMasa, I did a quick search, and I came across this:

",,,Restaurant Masa garnered the Michelin Guide's highest rating starting in the 2009 edition and was the first Japanese restaurant in the U.S. to do so.[6][7] It is one of only seven restaurants in New York City to currently hold a four out of four star rating by The New York Times.[8] It has also received five out of five stars in the Forbes Travel Guide (formerly known as the Mobil Guide).[9]"

Granted, this is speaking of his NYC restaurant and these types of ratings need to be used with a keen eye. Nonetheless, BarMasa sounds like a great place, I definately learned something through this thread and will give BarMasa a try.
