This is my favorite sushi place in Houston/Sugar Land.
Not only because their food is great, but also because of all the very different choices you have. Sushi, Latin food, salads, sandwiches, soups etc. It's great for a date or a night out with the kids. You can have a conversation and listen to nice Latin music at the same time. I have been going to Japaneiro's for about 8 yrs and I'm always happy. The menu changes from time to time to have new things, but keeps the old favorites- keep it up Japaneiro's!

We wanted to say thank you for giving us such great food and nice service for so long. Our family has been going to Japaneiro's since our youngest son was born (2004) and you guys keep impressing us every time. Your service makes us feel like home and there is always something new to try. Keep up the great work!

First time I ate at the restaurant, no problems. It was a Saturday night, so it was busy, which was to be expected. The food was very good, so I returned in May 2010 to buy a gift certificate for a friend.

I didn't buy the gift certificate because of the horrible service I received the day I went back. The hostess told me to wait in the bar, which I did for I almost 10 minutes with my 2 young daughters. (I'm not sure why she didn't try to get someone for me b/c it wasn't busy.) The restaurant was less than half full, lots of empty tables, so the lunch crowd had already left. My daughters and I were the only people in the bar area. A man dressed in plain clothes walked through twice, but didn't acknowledge me. Then a woman walks up with a $50 bill and within minutes this man helps her, selling her 2 $25 gift certificates, then he walks away from the bar before I can even get his attention. I turn to the hostess who is watching the whole thing and ask, "Is this the bartender I've been waiting for?" She said, "Yes, would you like to speak to a manager." I said, "Please," and she returns with the same man. I was very surprised this person was the manager and that he had ignored me now 3 times. I began to explain how I had been waiting to make my purchase and he ignored me both times he came through the bar area to which he said, "I didn't ignore you. I smiled at your daughters twice. I thought you were waiting on a table." At this point I'm very annoyed because he didn't seem to care or take responsibility for not helping me. So I told him, "If you had asked me if I had been helped, you would have known I was here to buy a gift certificate. However, if this is the type of service you provide, I don't want my friends to come here." Then I left vowing to myself to never go back there.

Unfortunately, I had a meeting at Japaneiro's earlier this evening. I had decided I wasn't going to eat, but 3 others at my table were. The waitress came by to take the order and the first person ordered dumplings while the other 2 women were still looking at the menu. The waitress asked the person who ordered, "Is that all?" The lady answered, "Yes," meaning that was all she was ordering. The next woman began to order and the waitress walked away. We didn't see the waitress again until she delivered the dumplings at that point the other two people ordered.

After tonight's strange experience I believe the manager, wait staff and hostess don't understand customer service is important in food industry. Having great food is only part of it, if you don't offer good service people won't return. Oh and the same manager was there again tonight. I never saw him go around and check on tables. He mostly stood back where the servers pick up the food to deliver to tables.

We live over in Seabrook close to Kemah, so this was a venture out away from our traditional spots for dinner. We were awe-struck by the beauty of the First Colony Mall area, since we have no mall near this nice, out on the Gulf side of town. Japaneiro's was super busy on the Friday night we attended, so we sat in the bar area to wait for a table. The bar area was so nice, we decided to simply eat there at the chest-high tables. We tried two of the "Japarita" mixed drinks (Japaneiro's version of a Margarita). They were really delicious and decidedly quite "potent"! We followed this by getting the shrimp tempura, Kamakazi roll, and Hottate roll. The Hottate Maki roll had huge slices of scallops rolled in the middle of the red rice paper, and was really delicious. The Kamakazi roll was way too peppery and rolled too small for my taste; my fiance agreed. We followed our sushi sampling by ordering two "Pepito" latin-styled sandwiches; mine had tempura shrimp, while my fiance's had grilled chicken. They were both very good, but too dry; they should offer mayo or dressing of some kind with their Pepitos. The prices were reasonable, the restaurant was definitely a Happening Place with lots of people, buzz and excitement, and the waiters and hostesses were very attentive. With a little more attention to their sushi detail and some carpet on the floors and walls to absorb the extreme noise level, this could be a five star spot. Until then, I can only offer up three stars. But the atmosphere is definitely a "must try" if you're looking for a popular, buzzing spot in the Sugarland\Houston area.

Pros: Buzzing with Chat and Unusual Offerings

Cons: Parking is a pain to find here at this mall area

We've eaten at Japaneiro's at least twice a month for years. The hardest part of eating there is not getting carried away ordering. Between my interest in trying new things and my husband's habit of ordering his favorites, we've ended up with a full meal's worth of leftovers on several occasions. It's honestly just about the only place I've NEVER had anything bad. Even dishes that aren't really my thing were still interesting to try and highly edible.

I was in the mood for something new, so I went for the Crudo Sampler on our most recent visit. The presentation was beautiful, almost like a floral arrangement made of sushi. And better than how it looked was how it tasted! I even ate the tamago, which I normally can't stand. Theirs was actually good, with a light delicate flavor I didn't expect from past experience.

The staff is always friendly and accommodating. They're knowledgeable about the menu and very helpful when you're not exactly sure what you want. Combined with the relaxed, friendly atmosphere, a trip to Japaneiro's is a bit like visiting family. My only real regret is I COULD have tried it months earlier, but I was intimidated by the idea of "fusion food". I'm so glad I let my curiosity win!

This is the best - great quality seafood, great atmosphere, outstanding sushi/sashimi. Having traveled and eaten it all over including NYC, Chicago, Detroit, LA - born outside N.O. - quality seafood is a must. Never had sushi before?? Try it here. Take a date/take a group - order Chef's Nirvana for their best and creative sushi/sashimi/rolls, then if group is big enough try West Coast sampler or other. So fresh hard to believe it's not cooked. Located just off Hwy59 at Hwy6/Tx Drive in Sugarland. Worth the drive when I'm in town. Great service - great food - Chef's Nirvana!!!

The food it's very good, although it's called a ushi place it's more a latino food place. But no complaints since all the lunchs are very good. If the prices were a little lower, this would be a daily place to go.

This place should not call itself a sushi or japanese restaurant whatsoever. Selection of sushi rolls are laughable. The combinations are horrible. The rolls are extremely overpriced as well as the other items on the menu. I couldn't believe 4 tiny pieces of the dumplings cost $6.00!! I will not ever be coming back to this supposed Japanese restaurant. If you're an authentic sushi restaurant lover, I would not recommend this place.

My wife and I frequent this restaurant and have nothing but praise for them. The sushi is always fresh and their rolls are great, especially the Hawaiian. Their Latin dishes add a twist to a normal sushi experience. Everyone on their waitstaff that we have had was very attentive and informative. We'll continue to dine here regularly.

Went for happy hour (which i believe was 3-7pm) and i loved it! Me and my boyfriend just ordered off the happy hour menu and it was soooooo good!!! I live in Cypress, so its about 1 hour away from me, but it was good I am thinking of going back this week and maybe the next... and every week until i am tired of it. Its cheap (since its happy hour) and so flavorful. We got the California Roll, shrimp dumplings, crab puffs, yucitas... our favorite were the dumplings - just wish they'd give more in the order (its only 4) and the crab puffs, so different than the usual crab puffs you're used to getting. So so delicious..

I think the people who go to Japaneiro's dont know sushi...This place is disgusting. Fried everything and full of evrything that does not belong!! My sushi was so bad I could not finish it...too much fried outlayer. The sushi had no flavor....This place offer fusion sushi- not the REAL deal. The service was EXTREMELY slow...Don't waste your time or money- if you want REAL sushi- go somewhere else.

My fiance and I always have date night on Fridays and we honestly got tired of all the usual places. We wanted to go out to a place that was up beat, fun to have a few drinks, and great food of course. This place by far is my favorite the food is delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for a date or even a group of people. My fiance is not a huge fan of sushi but once he tried the sushi here he was hooked especially their specialty rolls ,but they have so much more for others that do not like sushi. I can agree with another reviewer that the wait staff could be a little more cheerful but as for the wait for food and mix ups ...this place gets extremely busy so of course they are not always going to be perfect and the wait time for food can take a while.

I am a LOYAL Japaneiro's customer. My first visit was the first or second week that they opened several years ago. Their service & food are OUTSTANDING and I always feel like a valued customer when I go there. This is a great neighborhood spot & I would & do reccommend it to all of my friends!! The sushi is awesome & the sauces just give it that special touch.. AWESOME!!!!!

Dont get me wrong, its good. I wouldn't branch out and say its the best. I think our biggest complaint is we have had a few bad services. At one point they forgot my son's meal, then they ran out of the chicken for my son's meal, and then they reluctantly made him some beef (only other thing on the kids menu was shrimp which he won't eat). That took another 25 mins to cook up something that should have taken 7 max. Besides that there are a few gentlemen waitstaff that are just either rude or incredibly slow and have no desire to be there. Some of the girls we have had have been good though. And lately since I am pregnant, I have had to venture out to the cooked rolls. Unfortunately I have found that consistency is not their strong suit. But all in all, if they have a stronger waitstaff we would go back as I haven't found any other place good in Sugarland. But because of our bad experience with the waitstaff, we have decided to go elsewhere.

First thing you want to do when you sit is ORDER THE CRAB PUFFS! Then try out the good sushi and great Ambiance. There are not many things that you can order wrong at this place. But I did order a sandwich and was very disappointed. It was disgusting! Other than that the food was amazing and the environment was clean and friendly. Dessert was amazing also

Stay away from Sandwich; everything else is fantastic

Wonderful Sushi and other Japanese Food. Great value especially @ lunch. Consistently good mojitos (get the "fresh" its a dollar more but twice as large and very good). Wonderful wheat noodles. Good tempura. But all in all this is a place for good, fresh, varied Sushi.

I have eaten here several times and never had anything I didn't like.The bartender sure knows how to make drinks that make your head spin !The Yuquitas with the roasted pepper sauce will make you want for more...the Lettuce wraps with pork (meat by request) are enough for sharing with 3-4 people....I can go on and on !Oh but please, don't all come and eat here....Then I will have to wait to long when I come back !!

Japaneiros is absolutely amazing. I personally am not a fan of sushi but...going there for the first time the staff was able to recommend some different sushi to ease me into it...and now I love it. The latin food is phenomenal as well...it reminds me of my family's homecooking which is really nice because I don't get it that often. The staff is really friendly and relaxed, and from what I can tell they all get along and work well together. The hawaiian roll is awesome, and the rock and roll, and the mount fuji...and the verde salad is soooo good!!

I might be wrong but they've upped their quality of fish considerably in the last year or year and a half. I go pretty often, maybe once every week and, in the past, every now and then would encounter some suspect looking/smelling fish. Hasn't been that way for at least the last 5-6 months. I think their fish is comparable to some of the more traditional restaurants in Houston. Spicy tuna is also a good choice here. Service is just fine though I've noticed they frequently have new staff members... Not cheap or the best sushi restaurant in Houston, but you get what you pay for, and certainly an above average Japanese restaurant

One of the best sushi restaurants in Houston!! The rolls were very creative and very good! I recommend the Hawaiian Roll, Shaggy Dog Roll and the Avocado Soup.

Pros: Sushi, Area of Town

Cons: Parking

their lunch specials are a wonderful deal... a lot of food for $12. just eatting sushi will leave more to be desired as it is not as fresh as other places, but their rolls are creative and EXCELLENT! spicy sugar land or tai hippie are the way to go

Best sushi in all of surrounding Houston. Japanieros is fresh, nice portions, and beautiful. Their avocado soup is wonderful. Their salads are creative and taste great. The atmosphere is hip, inviting and open. You can sit outside and people watch if you choose in a great location. It's worth the drive from anywhere in Houston. Customer service is always perfect.

Pros: great for lunch with the girls or dinner with the family

Cons: Parking would be difficult but their is a parking garage - problem solved

One word... OUTSTANDING!! My wife and I drive all the way from Cypress to Sugar Land to taste this sushi. This unique "Latin Fusion" cuisine is one of a kind. Besides the fresh sushi, the rest of the menu will please even the biggest sushi haters. Try the beef and you won't be disappointed and wash it down with one of their delicious mojito's. I'll be back next week!

We've been there a few times for Happy Hour. Great food and very reasonable, but not TOO busy like most places...they have a lot of space which is all used during Happy Hour. Everything is presented so well, waiting staff are always very nice and polite, would recommend this place to everyone!! We will certainly continue going there!!

I love this place... even though I am not a shushi lover! There are many other "cooked" options on the menu that are exquisite! A great place to "get away" for all.

Note: The locator map for this restaurant on the "insiderpages" website is WRONG.... Japaneiro's is located in Town Square on Texas Drive - facing SH6 & US 59.

I live around Hwy 6 , Bellaire and there is absolutely nothing related to sushi in my area. I normally go to Azuma in Uptown but I decided to try something different for once. I went to Japanieros with 5 close friends this past Wednesday. There was a short wait but that only made me think "it must be good." The server was very prompt to greet us, not to mention cute. Our drinks were phenominal!! Try their fresh mojitos! We ordered a sampler of sushi called a " Nirvana." She brings out 2 large plates: one with 6 rolls and an assortment of sauces and the other with an assortment of sushi and 3 kinds of sashimi. We were all impressed with the flavors and our overall dining experience. The only thing I didn't like about the place was the parking. You have to park in a 4 story covered parking lot, take an elevator down, and then walk around town center to get to their front door. I guess they're not busy when it's raining!

We were not even greeted at the door. The waitress never acknowledged us. We ordered sandwiches and it took 45 min to get them. Because of the bad service we did not leave any tip. When I check my bill on-line the little' brat added a tip to the bill. I am so going to report them. I am protesting the whole bill.. This plain and simple robbery.

I'm not really sure why this restaurant is rated number 1. I read the reviews on CitySearch and thought this would be a great place to go since I live in Sugarland and love sushi. I went on a Friday night so it was busy and took a while to get a table. After we were seated, my boyfriend and I had to wait forever for Edamame and drinks. I ordered the Tiger Eye roll and he got one of their Latin infused steaks which just tasted like fajita meat. My sushi was roll was pretty disappointing and he wasn't thrilled about his meal either. It also took forever for drink refills. Living in Sugarland, I do wish there were more great sushi places but this is definitely not it.

This place has nothing but "delicious and very tasty food"

I went there for a friend's birthday. The place is small, so the wait is long if your party exceeds 4 people. You can't make reservations. You can have drinks and apps at the bar while you are waiting. Good drinks, good food. Sushi is great...love the shaggy dog! The crab rangoon appetizer is great, not like at a typical chinese restaurant. Try it! I would definitely go again with a smaller party or just with my significant other.

This place was soooo good. Me and my fiancee both loved it. The waiter was quick and always made sure our glasses were full and our plates were cleared out of the way. We started with the avocado cream soup which was really tasty and different. Then we had the Tuna tataki. I am not that big of a tuna fan but this was amazing! I usually eat in small bites but this stuff I practically inhaled. Then we got the Hawaiian Roll which was very different but also great. It was a great experience and we will definetley be back. We also tried Azuma's at Rice Village and while that was good Japaneiros was 10 times better.

I tried Japanerios because I was sick of the only other Sushi place, Kona. I was so impressed with everythnig at Japanerios. The night I wen was very busy but all the staff was working together to make the night run smoothly. Everything from the food temperature to the food presentation was amazing. Our service was excellent! they have the best sushi rolls and freshest sushi i have had out in sugar land!

When I come to Houston, I know I will make it to Japaneiro's before I live town. Best sushi I've ever had and the steaks are a wonderful tasty compliment after sushi. The decor is hip and just makes you feel good. Attractive, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Once you go, you always anticipate getting back there soon.

So, with so much waiting for a Friday night to show up, why get less than a fully rounded experience that includes a well prepared mojito, an exotic menu that pleases everyone, decoration that inspires, and a great value check that leaves with funds for the rest of the weekend. This is a "sure thing" place. You get "great" everything, every single time. I give it the thumbs up and really recommend it to anyone who is wanting to please all the senses and leave with a smile...

I love this place! Its my favorite restaurant. The food is great. You can choose between eating sushi (raw or cooked) or latin food. I have tried almost everything in the menu and have never been disapointed. The quality and freshness of the ingredients is incredible. I go there with my kids every week and never get bored because of the variety in the menu. The service is excellent. They are always very friendly with the kids. They can color and eat healthy food in a fun way (ie: imitating rolls) from the kids menu. But don't get the wrong impression its also the best place in Sugar Land for grown up dates. It has a great atmosphere, nice decoration and endless bar options. Don't leave the place without dessert. My favorite is "tres leches".

Every time I craved Japanese food I usually drove to Houston, but not since Japaneiros opened (about 3 years ago) here in Sugar Land. I have yet to try a dish I didn't like. My favorite avocado soup, Latino or Sasu rolls, the Pepitos, Very very fresh sashimi, and many more. I think and consider myself a regular visitor to the rest. and feel at home every visit. Atmosphere is beyond compare and service superb. My favorite waitress Maria is always there to accommodate me and my friends (we meet there at least once a week). Just writing about it makes me want to go, so I guess I'll have the verde salad, dumplings and seafood rice for lunch today. yumyum.
