Shinjuku is always amazing! Must tries: Fries, pizza, & Sweet Jalapeno roll. Built to impress with great management and attendant servers along with a talented kitchen make this small gem worthwhile for any occasion.

second time, as a party of 8-10, we have been seated as a long table next to the door---DRAFTY, and SNOW was coming through the large space between the door (facing Magnolia)!!! Despite this, both times, they have told us we couldn't be seated elsewhere....meanwhile, there were several tables available that could have been put together to seat our group.
FOOD IS FANTASTIC, and we are a very generous group (in both our ordering and our tip), but I think this is our last visit there. Their inflexibility to seat us elsewhere in the space is poor customer service. Especially when that customer is spending $600-700.

We were told our server was busy but we weren't in a rush so we didn't mind. He gave fantastic service. I had their weekend special drink "spiked chai tea" and it was perfect for the cold night it was. Food was good! Probably ordered too much but it was all worth it! It is small and cozy but busy so it can get loud! Great find for sushi!

This is our third visit to Shinjuku. Every time has been amazing! We love the food! We've tried about 80% of the menu now! The garlic rubbed tuna is so freaking delicious! Great service, but it is a little noisy in there!

Unique sharing plates. Reminded me a lot of Cannon Chinese Kitchen as far as how the place presented itself (I still prefer Cannon, though). Shinjuku-rita was exactly what you'd expect from an overpriced craft cocktail, not nearly strong enough. Tok fries were flavorful (with a kick) and delicious. Octopus was charred but juicy. Felt the burnt flavor was too much at times, but still overall tasty. The Chef's Special Candied Jalepeno Roll was simpler than I expected. I was prepared for something much spicier, but I'm not complaining. Finally, the quail eggs were beautifully presented. The waiter was great, giving us tips on specials all along the way. I was very impressed with everything. Plan to come back for lunch so I can try the Ramen

Who brings a baby to a place that bills itself as a "Japanese gastro-pub?" The people sitting behind my husband and I, that's who. It made our "special sushi date" a little less special. It was a bit stuffy inside, and this was not helped by the sizzling beef dishes ordered by those around us. My sushi was good but a bit warm, which always makes me wary. Inconsistent spice level on the spicy tuna rolls that we ordered. This place is good but clearly coasting on its hype.

Excellent izakaya-style (small plates) destination. The sushi was fresh, the atmosphere is very busy, and everything we had was extra tasty. Our server was knowledgeable and efficient, all while training a newer staff member. We had fun, and we'll be back!
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!!

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.
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.

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!
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.
