Sushi King

3401 Kirby Drive Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-528-8998

Location Description:

The menu enthusiastically boasts "Grade AA Sea Urchin (best in town)," so if nothing else, Upper Kirby's Sushi King is definitely going for an authentic feel. Upscale décor frequently accented by a piano player lends a modern, high-end atmosphere to the place, even if most of its prices hover around mid-level. Features an extensive sushi and sashimi menu (naturally), and also traditional entrees and kabobs, all orchestrated by head chef Keeper Lin.
