I believe that this is the best sushi place in Salt Lake City but it's 'the best sushi in Salt Lake City';... (I mean how many other sushi places are there anyway in Salt Lake city?) But, if you're from Los Angeles like me you would probably feel that the place is a bit overrated and over-priced; there are a lot of good sushi places I would rather want to go in LA. But, if I happen to be in the area and am really craving for good sushi, I would try this place again.



this sushi place was good, but i'm from CA so i've had much better. the prices were steep. My boss and I paid over $80 for just a few pieces and a very small. the service was good, but unless you're standing in line at 5pm (they open at 530) it means you're waiting a long time for a table.


Takashi is by far the best sus...

Takashi is by far the best sushi place in town. The only draw back is the wait, you could be waiting an hour or more. But it's SO worth it.

They have a wonderful menu of creative rolls. I don't like tempura fried rolls covered in mayonaise. I want rolls with real flavor without grease and Takashi has a great selection. Plus they always have new rolls to try on their specials menu.

The service has always been wonderful (I've been at least 30 times).

Here are my tops choices: Nasu (grilled eggplant in a miso sauce - I don't like eggplant but this is amazing), Torched Sablefish nigiril (wow, melts in your mouth), Easyride roll (with thai basil and mint - that how you make rolls with flavor instead of greasy mayo like the other places). If you do like tempura fried rolls, go for the TNT - it's spicy. Also their clams in the curry are awesome too.

There is valet parking in front of the Melting Pot, also paid lots off of West Temple.

This place is always worth the wait. I've been for lunch and for dinner and I've never had a bad experience. It's by far the BEST sushi I've ever had.

Excellent Sushi!

Excellent sushi. Wonderful environment. Fabulous service.
Also, very, very expensive. Its a great place for a ""once and a while"" splurge, but there are other places that are just as good for less cash.

Best Sushi in The West

I don't even know where to start with Takashi, it is hands-down the best. Best atmosphere, best fresh fish (they get fresh shipments daily, a lot of local restaurants only get shipments twice a week), best waitstaff, aaahhhh. You won't regret it. Glass noodle salad is fantastic, the vegan stir fry is delightful even if you are a meat-eater, all the rolls are incredible. Plan to make a night out of it- you'll likely have to pay for parking and then wait 30 minutes +, but you can go next door to Kristauf's and have a martini while you're waiting. With the hip, elegant atmosphere you'd expect prices to be higher but they are right on par with all the other sushi restaurants around. I always take friends here when they are visiting from out of town. Nowhere else even compares to Takashi.

Best Sushi in Utah

This is my favorite place for sushi in Utah. The Fish (as well as everything else) has always been really fresh and great tasting! It would be a waste of your time and money to go anywhere else. Any other places I have been to have been more expensive and poor quality. I have had bad service may 2 times in all the times I have been there and is was by the same person. We started requesting to set in their section and now they no longer work there. So, now in my opinion the place is perfect. It it totally worth the wait for a table. Just go next door to Kristoph's and have a martinin while you wait. The hostess will come get you when you table is ready if you let her know.

Sushi with great vibe!

Takashi is worth trying, and afterwards you'd love it! I went with my brother and we couldn't get over how great it tasted and how fast they served things. The place is great! It also has great prices its not over priced like most sushi places. I recommend going there for sure!

My Idea of Heaven

When I'm looking to celebrate something special or if I just want to treat myself, this is the place I go. The sushi is always fresh and the chef does some innovative things with sauces and flavor combos.
