Where to Eat Japanese Food in Denver

Updated: 6 November 2017
Denver’s Japanese restaurant scene is about much more than just sushi, though three are some great spots for when the sushi craving hits, too. However, you can also enjoy Japanese noodles, sake, and so much more. Here’s where to get Japanese food in Denver.

Sushi Den

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$
Save to wishlist

Sushi Den is perhaps the most popular sushi joint in the Mile High City, and for good reason. The fish is flown in daily from Japan, and every dish and sauce is made from scratch. Enjoy catch-of-the-day specials brought in from a fish market in the city of Fukuoka within 24 hours of having been caught. You’ll also love the 2-for-1 Sake specials during the evening happy hour. This place is definitely worth the splurge.

YA, I CAME IN WITH THE SAUCE 🍱 i like the way you roll, denver fish flown from tokyo- daily 🍣 + boooooooy can you taste it
