Brussel Sprout Chips

ExSW has a fantastic array of choices for vegetarians (that don't eat fish)! I literally have dreams about the Brussel Sprout Chips - that is how amazing they are! The soups are also wonderful as well as the seaweed salad.

I would never have thought I would enjoy a BLT sushi roll, but I was so wrong! I absolutely love this roll to the point where i crave it on a regularl basis and nothing else can satisfy that craving!

Tradito - Snapper - Sea Bass - Octopus - Diver Scall

This is the best menu item as its full of flavor, KETO and if you add deep fried brussel sprouts it's a full meal. We have been ordering it for years even before KETO was cool.

High Roller

The High Roller is one of our family favorite rolls at East By Southwest! It is the perfect blend of textures and flavors. The fish is always fresh and high quality. We have eaten sushi all over the US and we've yet to find a sushi roll that compares.

East by Southwest

Every roll I had was fantastic! The absolute best sushi in town. I loved the Jah man roll and was blown away by the cozy atmosphere and the employees were all extremely friendly and so helpful. It was a lovely celebration for my Husband's birthday and I can't wait to enjoy East by Southwest again!

Nigiri Sushi Set

Great atmosphere and very COVID friendly. Curtains between the table dampen noise from other tables and the service is great. No other sushi restaurant in Durango compares to this place.

Shrimp Tempura Roll

I tried sushi for the very first time in my life when I ordered the fried shrimp tempura roll from East x Southwest. I have always been extremely hesitant with trying sushi but I was happily & pleasantly surprised when I tried it because it was astoundingly delicious. I can't believe I've deprived myself of sushi this long! I also tried their spicy ramen (which was my first time trying elevated ramen) and it was also incredible. I am now constantly dreaming of the next time I'll get to order or make a trip to your restaurant. Thank you for turning me on to sushi.

High Roller

We always have a lovely time when we go to East by Southwest. The lotus blossom appetizer is wonderful when it is in season. We always order the brussel sprout chips, they have a touch of wasabi that is wonderful! We always order an assortment of sushi rolls and have never been disappointed in the freshness or flavor of any of them!

Jalapenito - Tuna - Hamachi - Salmon - Albacore

So so good. It had been years as I usually stick with the Tiradito and Blackened Albacore. This was a treat and I'll probably make it the trifecta from now on out.

EXSW is by far my favorite restaurant in Durango! I've been enjoying their exceptional cuisine just about every Birthday since I was a young teen. Fifteen years later, and the service is still always great, and the food is absolutely PHENOMENAL!

Chicken Thigh "Teriyaki"

Food is always soooo delish but server an management wise. Not so great. I had a server who paid more attention to frens they knew because i had to ask the bartender for items and he touched base with other tables many times more but not ours. So dissapointed. Told the manager lady and she didnt care and said oh im sorry. Then later tried to fix it wen i was already walking out. Bad management and server skills. Only reason i will go back is for the scrumptious food. Please fix the front of house issues an then you will have an awesome restaurant all the way around.

Hand Grenade

So many delicious options to choose from. I always have a great meal here. The hand grenades, the hamachi love, their tuna tataki and the New York New York roll are just a few of my favorites.

Vamipiro Roll is just one of my favorites. It is so creative, and has SO many incrdible flavors and textures happening for one roll. Flavor bomb!!!! Pair that with a Thai tea, and spicy edame. When my husband and I first started dating he vowed to take me on a date to every restaurant in town. We went to EXSW once and never looked back. We literally go for every bday, anniversary and celebration. Cant express how much we love making memories there. <3

Crunchy Asparagus

This is the best sushi in Durango! It is my all time favorite! They have lots of vegetarian options and is classy but still casual. This is a place where you can go out to eat any odd day or have a formal graduation dinner. The menu is endless and there is always something new to try and love.
