At Tokyo Sushi & Grill, chefs spin out plates of authentic Asian eats alongside a sumptuous spread of quality sushi. Fish fans can fill their tuna tanks with mouthwatering morsels of white tuna ($2.25), yellowtail ($2.25), belly tuna ($4.25), or spicy tuna ($6.50), or mix and match any number of specialty sushi items to create a custom conglomeration of fresh fish, sticky rice, and chopped veggies. Complementing the sushi-heavy repertoire, Tokyo Sushi & Grill draws from the deep wells of Japanese and Thai culinary traditions. The shrimp tempura finds deep-fried succulent jumbo shrimp sharing prime plate real estate with battered vegetables and a tangy dipping sauce ($7.95 for lunch; $9.95 for dinner), and the crazy noodles entree earns its name by throwing together egg noodles, onions, carrots, pea pods, and bean sprouts in a mad mash-up, paired with your choice of protein and 17 copies of The Catcher in the Rye ($7.95–$10.95).

Inside Kyoto Japanese Steak House, guests sit at large hibachi tables with a close-up view of chefs cooking scallops, filet mignon, chicken, and lobster. More than 80 traditional Japanese and Thai dishes are grilled up by hibachi chefs, and 25 specialty rolls take shape in the hands of sushi chefs, who combine ingredients such as soft-shell-crab tempura, flounder, and submarine meat. Above the dark-wood floor of the dining room, a curved bar serves up sake and fruit-infused cocktails.

At Shogun Japanese and Chinese Bistro, cooks amass an army of fresh ingredients to fire up on a griddle at diners’ tables. Here, shrimp, calamari, and sirloin morph into hibachi-style dinners as they sizzle in the heat and tumble through the air with the help of the chef’s spatula. Fresh fish and rice converge to form sushi such as the crispy roll #24, whose salmon and yellowtail flaunt a sauce as sweet and spicy as a valentine from a jalapeño pepper. The Chinese section of the menu brims with house specialties such as beef with stir-fried string beans and family-style meals of shrimp kow and almond chicken.

Yotsuba’s skilled sushi chefs sprinkle fresh fish and organic seaweed with low-sodium soy sauce brewed in-house. Tempura and teriyaki dishes steam atop low tables in the West Bloomfield location’s tatami room, where cushy legless seats host floor-level dining in traditional Japanese style. High-backed booths and bar seating at both locations raise patrons off the ground for views of chopstick-wielding chefs tapping out the drum solo from "Wipeout" behind the sushi bar.

At Dylan’s, customers find themselves contemplating a generous spread of entrees and tapas, sushi, and an extensive wine list. For starters, patrons can slurp a bowl of clam chowder ($7) or chomp on single pieces of red-snapper (tai, $3), bluefin-tuna (toro, $8), or squid (ika, $2.75) sushi, then transition to a plate of lobster mac 'n' cheese ($8) or flash-fried coconut shrimp with pepper jelly ($11). After a sweet helping of Japanese– inari tofu-vegetable rolls (6 pieces, $5) or a squid-and-octopus tako salad ($7.50), omnivorous eaters can set their appetites at ease with a serving of beef-tenderloin tips tossed with whole-wheat pasta ($20), a 12-piece sashimi combination plate ($22.50) served with sushi rice, or a platter of frog legs ($15) in hot-pink leotards. Clogged body pipes can then be flushed with a glass of Cartlidge & Browne sauvignon blanc ($9), Latour chardonnay ($7), or Montoya pinot noir ($9).
