The Japanese symbol Katsuya means victory. Makes sense since this upscale eatery, located at the SLS Las Vegas, has a world class culinary team constantly perfecting its already winning menu. Katsuya offers diners the freshest sashimi or waygu beef, both of which are worth the price. On par with the price point of many of Las Vegas strip restaurants, Katsuya remains a mainstay for outstanding sushi and sashimi platters. Moreover, carnivores won’t find much in terms of competition to its succulent waygu beef tenderloin and grilled lamb chops.
Several highlights are the crab hand roll with specialty sauce and the yellow tail sashimi with spicy jalapeño and ponzu sauce for a heavenly bite. The miso-marinated black cod is an outstanding dish on the menu. The fish is marinated 48 hours in Katsuya’s signature sweet miso, which allows great texture and complex flavor.
For those who crave a bit a beef for their dining experience, order the A4 wagyu fried rice or the wagyu rib eye with caramelized onions, a dallop of whipped truffle butter, and a side of wasabi-ponzu sauce. The special Katsuya Roll is another great option, which consists of tuna, yellowtail, salmon, scallop, crab, and avocado wrapped with rice, soy paper, and cucumber and finally served with wasabi ponzu.
With its wine, beer, and specialty cocktails, Katsuya, is truly a champion in the dining arena.
