Our first trip there was quite pleasant, we sat at the sushi bar and had pretty good sushi. The sushi chefs were friendly and customized a couple of rolls for us. On our second visit there we decided to take some friends who brought a bottle of mid-priced wine with them. The sushi was pretty good, however the menu is extremely large and a bit confusing. The ambiance was nice, however the restaurant is too large for a more intimate atmosphere. The meal went well until we received the tab. Their prices are a bit higher than most comparable sushi places. The corkage fee for the wine was the big disappointment. They charged $15 for the corkage few. There is nothing on the menu that stated this fee. Had we known their fee we would have saved our wine. We are used to paying $10 maximum, 2 weeks ago we ate at a very nice place downtown that charged $5. We asked to speak to the manager, she said she couldn't take off the fee for us or she would have to do it for everyone. We tried to explain were happy to pay a reasonable fee like $10. She eventually agreed to it but made the situation very uncomfortable. Her professionalism was horrible and there was a language barrier when trying to explain we would not return if they continue to charge that high of a corkage fee. We spent $140 between the 4 of us, it blew me away that she wouldn't recognize we would not return or recommend the restaurant to anyone due to her attitude about the fee. We won't be going back there. It's worth trying once, but there are many more better sushi places in Salt Lake where you can go and feel more comfortable with the prices and atmosphere.
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.
Honest review. Friday afternoon, just got paid. Happened upon a quaint Sushi restaurant in the 7 21 Plaza in Sugarhouse (in the strip mall of businesses on NW corner of 7th East and 21st South). Decided to treat myself to all you can eat sushi--included free soda and free miso soup. Philip, the chef, happened to be working today. He was very accomodating. Told me he could make me anything I want. For those of you from out-of-town, they have all the imported Japanese beers you'd expect to find (Sapporo, Kirin, Asahi, etc.) as well as Tsingtao. Also have SAKE!!!!! Eat, drink & be merry.
My husband and I drove past Sushi Yah many times and never considered stopped because we expected a sushi restaurant advertising "All You Can Eat" to have pre-prepared sushi sitting under glass like other all-you-can eat Asian places. Then, we decided to take a chance and stopped there for lunch one day. We were amazed by the quality of the made-to-order sushi. We LOVE the Fuji roll and the Utah Mountain Roll. The fish is fresh, the rolls are large and tasty, and the service is fast and friendly. I've never had better sushi anywhere.
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.
My husband and I loved the sushi! The spicy tuna and unagi has great flavor, as well as the salmon and shrimp.The chefs made the substitutions we asked for. Everyone on the staff smiled and greeted us. We felt like we were with friends. And, to top it off, the menu pricing was surprisingly reasonable. My husband and I shared 3 huge rolls for a total bill of $24. (They even offer a $19.95 all you can eat sushi on the menu!) John and his staff have us as regulars now!
Red Iguana and Blue Iguana have good mexican food but the lines our really long and the food is just better than average. You will find that Flores has the most authentic mexican food in all of Salt Lake and you'll seldom if ever wait. Flores is located on Redwood Road and 7th north (behind the Mcdonalds).
try the combo for two (or more) runs about $13 per person a blend of Japan and China soup(broth w scallions) Shrimp Tempura Fried Chicken Sticky rice Terriaki ribs Chop suey thick patty of egg foo young fortune cookie Used to be better when the Matron ran the ship RIP Mary what a kind soul, gone to heaven
I have been a customer of KoKo Kitchen for a few years. I have never been treated badly and have always received excellent service. The food is very good and I have always loved their Pot Stickers and Teriyaki Chicken. Their side salads are unique and always fresh. I would recommend it to everyone.
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.
