Grill tops sizzle behind the buffet counter at Mongolian Wok & Sushi Bar, where chefs sear stir-fry combinations to order all day long. Diners find plentiful options as they traverse the buffet tables. Stainless-steel bins ensconce Mongolian and Chinese favorites such as general tso's chicken and mongolian beef. And, oblong white plates hold freshly wrapped sushi, so diners can load up with as many rolls as they can eat or use to build a scale model of a medieval castle. The buffet also holds steamed crab legs, rings of shrimp, and mounds of fresh fruit.

Chinese-American fusion stars on the menus served at Taipei Restaurants, located in both Stone Oak and Castle Hills. Both locations specialize in wok-seared moo shu pork served with housemade pancakes, salt-and-pepper shrimp, and triple delight—a tasty trifecta of chicken, beef, and shrimp in a spicy housemade sauce. Sizzling firecracker chicken sets tongues aflame with jalapenos at the Castle Hills dining room, and in Stone Oak, knives glide through tender osso bucco, a bone-in pork shank poached in a traditional sauce of rice wine and soy. At the Stone Oak location, sushi chefs carefully craft maki rolls or assemble plates of precisely sliced sashimi and nigiri from fresh seafood fished by the staff's resident mermaid. The Castle Hills location cultivates serenity with muted tan walls, rows of tall windows, and mounted Chinese paintings that depict subjects from a horse to a parade.

At Hon Machi Sushi & Teppanyaki, the chefs take center stage to entertain every sense as they fashion culinary works of art. Whether they're on the sidelines putting together specialty hand rolls at the sushi bar or searing combinations of steak, lobster, and chicken at tableside grills, half of the experience is watching chefs create the tasty meals. Deep-red walls surround the eight-seat teppanyaki stations that encourage guests to chat with fellow diners and let them know if they have rice in their beards.

Ambient lighting casts a glow over Japanese calligraphy on the walls of O-shi Sushi Place, a restaurant located in the same building as Grand Agave nightclub. The lighting is brighter behind the long, elegant sushi bar, illuminating the chef's knife as he slices through steaks of ocean-fresh salmon, red snapper, and other seafood. That seafood gets served up as sashimi or fashioned into fusion sushi rolls such as the Tropical roll, a medley of tempura-fried shrimp, serrano peppers, avocado, fried banana, and sriracha. Diners can also opt for sizzling steaks seared on a teppanyaki grill, and can pair their dinner entrees with wine and specialty martinis.

Though its name suggests otherwise, the Forget About It roll’s unorthodox ingredients make it pretty memorable: the flavorful crunch of shrimp tempura is wrapped up with crawfish and accented by ginger cream. It's just one of the many unique combinations dreamed up by Piranha Killer Sushi's owner and chef, Kenzo Tran. Non-traditional sushi fixings are Kenzo’s specialty, from the White Lotus roll’s pico de gallo and truffle oil sauce to the Bullet roll’s cilantro chili purée and edible police officer’s badge.

That blend of the classic and unconventional runs throughout Piranha Killer Sushi's menu. Besides distinctive rolls, the kitchen serves up dishes such as Korean beef in ginger marinade, salads with octopus and spicy conch, and blue crab fried rice. Ditto the drink menu, featuring specialty libations such as the saketini, a blend of vodka, gin, and sake with a cucumber garnish. The restaurant's whimsical take on Japanese fare hasn't gone unnoticed—media outlets laud it for its tasty creations and inviting decor.
