Red Sushi at Golden Nugget in Las Vegas offers traditional Japanese cuisine ranging from raw fish (sushi and sashimi) to cooked food (teriyaki, ramen and more). They offer happy hour which runs daily from 4-6PM. During the happy hour, select appetizers, sushi rolls and cocktails range from $2-$6.
The place is not a full-blown restaurant like Chart House and Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse. The restaurant is right at the casino space across from The Grand Events Center. It has a small capacity having two sushi bar areas (that seats 4-5 people each) and some dining tables.
I came here at 5PM for their happy hour and got the Sake Bomb, Spicy Tuna Roll, and Salmon and Avocado Roll.
– Sake Bomb ($2) – Shot of Sho Chikubai sake dropped in a glass of beer
I had my first Sake Bomb at Kingyo Izakaya Toronto. At Kingyo, they gave a pint of Sapporo for the beer, but here it was just a small glass of beer, in which you can’t even really drop the shot glass. Having said that, it’s still just $2 after all so it’s still such a great deal!
– Salmon and Avocado Roll ($5) – Fresh salmon and avocado rolled inside-out
I really enjoyed this roll as it tasted very fresh and the chunks of avocado and salmon was big. Love that they didn’t compensate with smaller chunks and more rice.
– Spicy Tuna Roll ($6) – Chopped tuna mixed rolled inside-out
I found the tuna to be too chopped up to my liking. The texture has changed because it was very shredded. Wish they gave the same chunk as the Salmon and Avocado Roll. It still tasted fresh and the spice was good spicy.
