Seven days a week, world-class DJs bump hip-swaying beats at KOI Lounge, the Strip’s freshest take on the boutique nightclub. Plush lounge seating lines the border of the circular space, which overlooks Planet Hollywood’s sprawling casino, with the spacious, onyx-hued dance floor glittering with gold flecks even in the low lighting. Partiers replenish their energy with the kitchen’s Japanese-inflected cuisine, which—working in tandem with Asian-inspired decor and European bottle service—lends the venue an international vibe typically achieved by serving vials full of international waters.
Yoko Sushi's skilled culinary artisans create delicate sushi rolls and classic Japanese cuisine to form expansive lunch and dinner menus. The flagship all-you-can-eat sushi package piles plates high with succulent morsels of red snapper or mussels, as well as classic rolls such as the spicy yellowtail, to fill stomachs at noon ($22.95) or in the evening ($25.95) and foster impromptu Jenga games. Teriyaki dishes deliver a choice of beef, chicken, or salmon ($6.95), and the special grilled-mackerel plate only arrives after marinating in seawater ($8.95). Finish gastronomic symphonies on a sweet note, with a selection of dessert such as the tempura fried ice cream in a choice of green tea or plum ($3.50), which combines hot and cold like a volcano full of popsicles.
Swish Japanese Hot Pot equips diners' tables with an array of ingredients and all the cooking equipment necessary for tableside flavor molding. Shabu shabu preparation allows patrons to swish their meats and veggies about in a seaweed-based broth that boils fat out of meat and retains more of the vitamins from vegetables within the broth itself, further accessorizing tables with a citrus and a sweet sesame sauce for dipping. Conversely, sukiyaki preparation upgrades tables with a shallow iron pot that slowly simmers its ingredients and accouterments together tableside in a soy-sauce-based bath, with diners dipping bites in raw, beaten egg first for a boost in flavor, texture, and likelihood that the next boxing match will be famously brief.

In 1971, Jimmy Nishiyama introduced the city of Las Vegas to Japanese hibachi cuisine. Three decades later, and the friends have stayed very much in touch. During that time, Geisha House, Nishiyama's brainchild, has grown to fill three locations and eight menu pages. Colorful specialty sushi rolls, such as the baked Japanese Lasagna—cream cheese and mayo atop a crabmeat and avocado roll—make fitting partners for grilled lobster, filet mignon, or scallops in hibachi dinners. Nearly 30 varieties of sake trip merrily across the palate, while the Geisha martini blends sake with plum wine and a treasure trove of James Bond jokes.
Kaizen Fusion Roll & Sushi intersperses inventive sushi rolls with Japanese entrees, finger fare, and half a dozen sakes served hot or cold. A wood-framed, square sushi bar dominates the space, backed by an accent wall that captures the shimmering hues of a flame. Patrons can sidle up to the sushi bar to enjoy seaweed cylinders flung into their mouths directly from the chefs’ knife, or settle at a table along a chartreuse wall. In addition to using fresh fish, the restaurant's sushi selection reverses traditional rolls with ingredients such as Korean-style barbecue short rib or pickled pumpkin. Kaizen Fusion Roll & Sushi's chefs also think outside the cylinder as they whip up conical and spherical entrées of Asian-style barbecue and teriyaki accompanied by imported Asian beers and saketinis.
