Craving sushi? Good news!
Oklahoma City has several sushi restaurants that are so good, you’ll forget you’re landlocked!
Whether you’re looking for the best sake, fresh rolls, charming atmosphere, happy hour specials, or your new go-to spot, OKC has got you covered.
After sampling many of the sushi restaurants here in town, I’ve narrowed it down to my top six.
Map of the best sushi in OKC
Best all-around sushi: Sushi Neko
Sushi Neko is located off of N Western Ave and is my personal favorite, along with the favorite of many other OKC locals. This gem has all the classic sushi rolls as well as 40 or so others to choose from. You can count on Sushi Neko for fresh, delicious sushi with a relaxing dining experience.
Sushi Neko’s atmosphere is very charming and intimate. There are even a few tables that offer Zashiki, a traditional Japanese dining seating arrangement featuring a low table set with pillows.
My personal favorite roll is the Super Tootsie roll, but my boyfriend’s go-to is the Lady Love, a salmon roll with fresh lemon, masago, green onion, and spicy sauce. Some other popular rolls are the Cowboy roll, the Red Canyon roll, the Lifesaver roll, and the Volcano roll.
Many others have discovered this restaurant, so it can get pretty crowded. (Especially on Friday and Saturday nights!) I would recommend making a reservation in advance, especially if you’re planning on coming in with a large group. This can be easily done online through OpenTable or by phone.
Forgot to make a reservation? If you’re coming with a small group, you may be able to grab a seat at the bar, where you can watch the sushi chefs at work right in front of you!
Alternatively, (pro-tip alert) if Sushi Neko is completely booked up, hop across the street to Musashi’s! It shares owners with Sushi Neko. Here, you can enjoy Japanese-style hibachi, as well as most of the delicious sushi rolls that Sushi Neko serves. My personal favorite at Musashi’s is the Orange Lotus roll, which is filled with tempura shrimp, crab, cream cheese and then deep fried and topped with spicy salmon tatar and green onion.

For quality & charm: Tokyo Japanese Restaurant
Tokyo Japanese restaurant is known for their consistently superior service, quality, and charming, hole-in-the-wall atmosphere. Located between Nichols Hills and historic Crown Heights, you’re sure to find friendly staff, good sake, and delicious sushi here.
Since their opening in 1987, Tokyo Japanese has offered traditional Japanese cuisine in a warm, relaxing atmosphere. Their sushi has beautiful presentation, and you can watch the expert chefs make it fresh right in front of you. Many frequent visitors swear it is the freshest sushi you can get while being landlocked here in OKC!
Some of the most popular rolls include the Dynamite Dynamite roll, which is a unique roll with grilled scallops, smelt roe, and crabstick mix and topped with salmon, avocado, and lemon. Regulars also rave about the deep-fried Golden roll.
You also can’t go wrong with one of their classic rolls, like the Spicy Tuna or California roll.
However, Tokyo Japanese isn’t just known for their sushi rolls. They offer a variety of delicious, authentic Japanese dishes, like gyoza, katsu, and ramen.
For the best value, I would recommend trying one of their lunch specials. Many also enjoy the Tokyo box, which allows for sampling a little bit of everything for less than 20 bucks. (You can also scale this down during lunch for around 10 bucks.)
Service can take a little longer during peak times, so be sure to account for a little extra time if you plan on visiting during those hours, and Tokyo Japanese does get pretty full. I would recommend making a reservation by phone call or online if you wish to avoid the wait.

My favorite environment & experience: Yokozuna
Located in the lively, up-and-coming Chislom Creek area, Yokozuna is a popular spot for sushi, ramen, craft cocktails, asian-fusion entrees, and more. The atmosphere and attentive service here makes for a great date night or dinner out.
You can’t go wrong with one of their classic rolls, but if you’re feeling adventurous, try one of their signature rolls that are unique to Yokozuna. One of the most popular (and my personal favorite) is the Dilly roll, a cream cheese, tempura shrimp and asparagus roll that’s topped with salmon, avocado, lemon zest and lemon dill aioli. The lemon and dill combination tastes fresh, unique, and delicious!
If you’re dining with others who would prefer something other than sushi, Yokozuna also is loved by many for their ramen, steamed buns, curry, and other unique asian-style entrees.
They offer indoor seating as well as rooftop seating areas. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, Sidecar, the bar on the rooftop next door, plays live music around 8 p.m. For a relaxing night out, try grabbing dinner and then heading over to Sidecar to enjoy a cocktail and live music. Or, you can always listen from Yoko’s rooftop!
Yokozuna’s pricing is moderate, averaging about $12-20 per roll and about $10 per cocktail. However, they’re also known for their happy hour specials every day from 2 to 5 p.m. where appetizers and select sushi rolls are discounted.

Best grab & go Spot: GoGo Sushi

GoGo Sushi has all the classic rolls as well as a ton of special rolls to choose from. Their large menu also has many other Japanese-style cuisine options to choose from, including ramen, the fan-favorite teriyaki chicken, gyoza, and bento boxes.

Best downtown spot & happy hour: Yozo Sushi Tapas
Yozo Sushi Tapas is a fun sushi spot located in Automobile Alley in Downtown OKC. They’re known for their great service and cozy, modern ambiance. Their sushi rolls are delicious, but they also stand out from the crowd with their unique Asian-Latin infused tapas and cocktails.
The dishes here are always plated beautifully. One of the most popular rolls that reflects Yozo’s Asian-Latin style is the Elote roll, which is a California roll topped with baked sweet corn, chili powder, and parmesan.
Yozo does the little things to make every visit a great experience, including having a button on each table to be able to call servers whenever you need them. Visitors come back time and time again for amazing discounts with their happy hour specials, which happens on Fridays and Saturdays 3 to 6 p.m. They also have rotating daily takeout deals with various discounts!

Best hole-in-the-wall: Roll & Rock Sushi Station
Roll & Rock Sushi Station is a local favorite known for its quality for the low prices, great deals, friendly service, and beautiful roll presentation! Located south of Lake Hefner off of N Meridian Avenue, this definition of a hole-in-the-wall is a pleasant surprise that won’t disappoint.
One of my favorite parts about Rock & Roll is how the rolls are plated with flowers. It’s the little things that count! Something I and many other customers also enjoy is that you get a free roll when you spend $25.
Roll & Rock has a huge menu with tons of rolls to choose from. Popular rolls include the Dragon roll, Spicy Calamari roll, and the Tiger roll. Visitors also love their fried calamari, fried rice, egg rolls, and potstickers.
