Shishito peppers to start. Have a hand crafted cocktail next then order all the fresh sushi your tummy can hold. Such a gem in our lovely historic FW neighborhood.

Food was amazing as always! Shinjuku never disappoints.
We enjoyed our 2nd visit to Shinjuku.
This restaurant allows us to try small plates of new foods to us. The Japanese Pizza was the only one for which we were disappointed. Everything else has been wonderful! The waitpeople are enthusiastic & willing to answer questions. We especially enjoyed Vi (or is it Vee) as our primary waitperson. We will definitely be back!
Good restaurant but it had some bumps
This was my first visit to Shinjuku Station and we went for lunch. There was room at the sushi bar so we decided to sit there. The building was once a bank I was told, so it made for a lovely ambiance. Our server was very friendly in greeting us and took our order. The food arrived in rather a slow fashion even though the place wasn't anywhere near full. I was happy I wasn't trying to get back to the office after lunch as it took a good long time for the food to arrive. My wife ordered a glass of white wine. When it arrived, we were both surprised to see that it looked like they were using the last bit of wine in the bottle. It literally barely came up the the halfway point in the glass. She asked the server and he gladly brought more to add to the glass. My kitchen order finally arrived but the tempura part of the dish was very cold - as if it had been sitting waiting for someone to order it. I explained this to the server and again he gladly replaced it for a hot serving. As I was nearing the end of my kitchen order, my sushi order had never arrived. I asked the sushi chef if he could check on this and it turned out that the waiter had forgotten to put the order. I was still hungry so decided to wait and have it anyway. The food was good but as I mentioned, there were numerous slip-ups along the way. The restaurant is rather pricy as well. Hopefully, this was an isolated event for them.

Love this place. My kinda good. Don't go in here and ask for a California roll though!! Geez. This is the kinda food you find at a train station in Japan. The king crab roll (real crab!) with brown butter sauce was fab!!
Best Sushi.. ever?
As out of towners, we were recommended this restaurant by a friend who lives locally. This was some of the best sushi that I've ever had. Sashimi melted in my mouth like butter. No cream cheese or other junky fillers were used in the rolls. Service was a 4 only because the specialty rolls took a while to come out. Value was a four because our meal was $120 for three people and we only drank water. Well worth it though!!
the best sushi ever!
The food was beyond incredible, all the staff were friendly. The ambiance whas relaxing and perfect to talk. Me and my husband are so impresed!

In a city of increasing dining options, Shinjuku Station is still a favorite. Fresh ingredients and an inventive menu, including the best sushi in town, keep bringing us back and the service and atmosphere make it a great experience every time.
Love the fresh fish!
I think Shinkjuku Station has some of the best sushi in Fort Worth. I love the sashimi plates, like hama chili and the ceviche. There is not a large selection of rolls, so if that's your thing, this might not be the place for you. The fish is always top quality and the service is always excellent.
One of the very best restaurants in Fort Worth
The sushi and sashimi is always very fresh, delicious, and nicely presented. The steamed mushrooms are absolutely divine! Great drinks and service. It doesn't get any better than Shinjuku Station!

They have wonderful Japanese inspired food. Despite the average service, the food is so good I would still keep coming back.
Try them all!
Everything about Shinjuku was amazing! We went to celebrate our 17th anniversary. Staff was quick, friendly and helpful with the menu. We ordered several items and all were very good. My favorite was the surf'n'turf, we ordered two. The only problem I had with the night was when a group of 5 sat across the room from us and were extremely loud. Everyone was looking around at each other, even the staff, but no one asked them to quiet down just a bit. I wanted to, but they were drinking and probably had been for awhile and didn't want to make the situation any worse. Regardless of that, this is an awesome joint that you must try.
Great for a group birthday!
We had a group birthday lunch. We ate outside and ordered several plates for the table. It was a great atmosphere, great food and friendly servers. We didn't feel rushed and they even served the cake we brought for us!
Oh boy! I am not a fan of Shinjuku at al ...
Oh boy! I am not a fan of Shinjuku at all. We ordered several dishes and most of them just didn't jive with me. Hear me out. I've been to several izakayas and I know I have a few favorites. So I stick to them and are mostly pleased with the flavors. Point in case was the baby octopus. This is usually dry. At Shinjuku it comes wet. It's described as seared baby octopus in sesame oil. It was too wet that if it was seared I missed that point. It lost its texture and all I felt I was chewing was something soft. We also ordered their Wild Mushroom. This was presented in a tin foil container shaped like a box. Cute. The flavor escaped me. It was described as baked in brown butter. All I tasted was a note of sourness.Not overwhelming but it was the predominant taste. I was looking for the wild mushroom taste. It was what I ordered after all. Wild Mushrooms. Chicken Karaage. This was described as lightly fried organic chicken pieces with a side of kewpie and chili powder. This was the best bet if eaten with the supplied kewpie and chili powder. Otherwise, it was bland. Okonomiyaki. Japanese pizza. I expected good things from this dish. I was rewarded. A medley of flavor when I bit into this pizza. Kampachi Ceviche. Young yellow tail sashimi in yuzu-lime sauce, dice jalapeños, cilantro and lime. This was a hit. Fresh, thinly sliced fish bath in perfect yuzu-lime combo. This I am a fan of! We ordered the usual suspects as well. A few rolls. So. Shinjuku is the home of Godzilla. Also the home of the world's busiest train station. I was expecting a Godzilla like flavor owing it to the high rating on yelp. I was happy with their sashimi not so with the rest. P.S. their cheesecake was amazing!
Always great food...our favorite!

Great new find!
I know this place has been around a while but I just finally made it for a visit at dinner this past week. What a find! I'm still dreaming about the mushrooms -- fantastic! We tried several of the meat dishes...pork belly buns, a chicken dish and an incredible beef entree. Can't remember the names of everything but nothing was less than fantastic. Try the tempur; both the veggies and the proteins we tried were perfectly cooked. This restaurant will be on our regular rotation.
Everything we had was delicious and the server was very prompt and knowledgeable. Looking forward to our next visit. Make sure you try the mushrooms and the waygu beef.
ALL ABOARD @ SHINJUKU STATION
THIS NEAR SOUTH-SIDE FIND IN THE FORT WORTH MEDICAL CENTER DISTRICT ON MAGNOLIA AVENUE PRESENTS A MENU OF JAPANESE FOOD LONG NEEDED IN THE AREA. ALTHOUGH ENERGETIC DESCRIBES THE NOISE LEVEL, IT'S A DOUBLE-EDGED SWORD. ONE CANNOT REALLY CONVERSE...YOU HAVE TO YELL TO BE HEARD BY YOUR TABLE COMPANIONS. NONETHELESS, THE AMBIANCE IS THAT OF A RED BRICK WALLED BUILDING WITH EXPOSED CEILING DUCTS AND HAVING UNDERGONE A PHOENIX REVIVAL INTO WHAT WILL UNDOUBTEDLY BECOME A FAVORITE PLACE TO WHICH TO RETURN FOR A BROAD VARIETY OF JAPANESE FARE INCLUDING A LONG LIST OF SUSHI, NOODLES, ETC. WAITSTAFF IS HELPFUL AND PROMPT DESPITE A FULL ROOM OF DINERS. WE WERE VERY PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.
A great take on Japense food
We went on the recommendation of a Chef friend. The food was a really nice take on traditional Japanese dishes. Get the mushrooms! The ambiance of the place is not up to the food. The tables along the walkway are to be avoided. Light was glaring depending on where you sit. Still very much worth going if you lean toward the Foodie side.
Well taken care of
the server took great care of me walking me through the menu with excellent recommendations. The drinks were tasty and had a healthy pour. The food was superb with a wide variety of Japanese style dishes from fresh raw choices to cook at your table dishes. It was a fun evening, a culinary success.
You need to go here
This was my second time to Shinjuku station and i live in little elm, TX. It's worth the hour drive for me and I can't wait to go back. Great for a date night also great for small groups. The food here is Amazing!!!!! Try everything!!!!!
Unique, suits all tastes
This is a well-appointed, cozy spot for an intimate experience; Shinjuku has a great wine list and is considerate of all eaters--ask for the gluten-free and the vegetarian menus. The service is top-notch--friendly, helpful, and modest. And the food is FANTASTIC.
Really Great Japanese Food!!!
This restaurant really covers all the bases. The sashimi and rolls are first rate as well as the grilled and fried dishes. My wife doesn't eat sushi but loved her meal. The food makes you feel like you're in Tokyo. Be aware this is a small restaurant with all of the tables aligned in a single row on one wall. There is a small bar area with five or six seats. I would advise getting there early but be ready to eat great food at a reasonable price with great service.
Coming from Los Angeles, I was impressed to find such n authentic and high quality Japanese restaurant in Texas. Service was excellent and the food was stellar. Get the black mussels and candied jalepeno roll- you won't be sorry.
High quality no-nonsense sushi and not a lot of fancy rolls. Small hot dishes were quite good. We went on a Monday night and they were out of several things. The waitress was very nice but didn't seems to be on top of things. She missed putting in part of our order and didn't know that they were out of things until putting in the orders. Still, overall, it was good and I would definitely go back.
first time surprise - definite Yes!
Took our boss for lunch, beat the lunch crowd. Hostess recommendation of stir fry edamame was spot on, I've not found edamame edible. The Ceviche was fantastic, we both wanted to drink the leftover juice from the plate.
Excitement for the palate
Wonderful fare, wonderful service. Anthony, our server, was very attentive and made great suggestions. The grilled yellowtail and its accoutrements were outstanding. Every morsel was indeed excitement for the palate!
Wonderful flavors on a unique menu. I suggest the chef rolls and the housemate dessert.
Simply the best !
Shinjuku is a favorite of mine . A group of 10 went for a birthday celebration . Birthday Boy was very happy and expectations surpassed ! I have never had better mussels !
Great food, bar tenders are awesome and the owner as well
Incredible food & expereience
The waitstaff was incredibly knowledgeable and pleasant. All the food was reasonably priced and VERY fresh. I had such a great time and will be returning soon!
This sushi place has some of the freshest sushi I have ever had in Fort Worth. The service was great and so was the food. Be sushi to ask the server what the freshest sushi of the day is. It is not your average sushi restaurant but it is worth it.
First Time Dining Experience
When we arrived, we were the only two people in the entire place. But the food was well worth the early dining experience. We ordered a bottle of wine for the meal and followed the recommendations of the waitress. Similar to a tapas style eatery, the plates were smaller portions to share between the table (as well as the food was coursed out gradually through the evening). Started with (4) sushi rolls: unagi (eel), taraba (king crab), vegetable roll, and their chef's special: surf and turf! All amazing! Our favorite was the surf and turf! Next courses: hand-made pork gyoza, ishiyaki (beef tongue and duck), okonomiyaki, and japanese mushrooms (extremely citrus -y and I could have done without). Will definitely be going back for more!!!!
Service leaves much to be desired
The food was delicious! Thank goodness, because the service may be the worst I've ever had. I understand making little mistakes or being busy, I was a waitress and bar tender for many years. However, when you combine the fact that the server didn't really listen, forgot to put things in so we waited an hour for a simple roll, ignored us when she walked by though she clearly saw we needed her, and hung out by the computer for long periods of time instead of getting our order or coming over later when the manager told her we needed her, the experience was horrible. We were exhausted from trying to get her to help us or pay attention to us. However, the food was wonderful once we got it.
Just Like Tokyo
Having lived in Tokyo for two years, I can attest that the cuisine and presentation at Shinjuku Station reminds me of my former home. The staff took great care of us, and we left very full and satisfied. A must-go restaurant!
Close to authentic Japanese
Close to authentic Japanese fare. Reasonable prices. Good service.
My husband and I loved this place. The service was terrific. The food was very good. We will defiantly be back!
Authentic Japanese in DFW finally!
We moved here from NY and haven't found any authentic Japanese restaurants in the DFW area....until now! Shinjuku Station is not your typical Westernized Japanese sushi place. They do not have sushi rolls with cream cheese, imitation crab meat, or avocados or jalapenos. (You'll never find California rolls in Japan!) However if you want fresh sushi, this is the place. Their cooked appetizer items are really what their specialty is. They have many "tapas-type" items which makes the dining experience fun and unique. Highly recommend this restaurant if you desire a true taste of Japan.
