very over priced.... small portions had to eat lots of rice to fill up. ... i not ever eat there again... got the squirts.... yuck
Went on a slow day and got ridiculously slow and terrible service. . thought we would give it another chance for a nice dinner and were refused service... Wow!!!! My fav place to go ever... NOT!!!! I would rather learn to make it on our own. Seriously!!!!
Great value ! Secret hangout of the cognoscenti - don't go for the esthetics - good food / hole in the wall - awesomeness!!
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 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.
9 years ago this had the best sushi in town. Back in 2003 I had my first sushi experience at Shogun. I never cared for fish and the thought of eating raw smelly fish did not sound appetizing. After a few Saporos I finally took a bite of nigiri. That bite changed me into a sushi lover. I found that good sushi should never taste fishy.Around 2004/ 5? Their best chef Takashi left and opened his own restaurant and I have not been back to Shogun. Recently I found a coupon and decided to try it again.They haven't changed the decor and everything looked very dirty - especially the floors. You have to take off your shoes to sit in the booth and everything I touched was sticky. We thought - OK sometimes a hole in the wall can have amazing food. So we gave them the benefit of the doubt. We ordered 4 rolls and some nigiri. The rolls were very messy looking and they weren't very good. The nigiri tasted VERY fishy....it was HORRIBLE! That was the worst sushi experience in my life. Their prices are very high for a sushi place - around $12 per roll. I would expect those prices at Takashi but not a dump like this. If you are looking for good sushi, I recommend Takashi or Sapa. Sapa is a bigger restaurant so if there is a wait to be seated, it won't be as long as Takashi. Plus Sapa's prices are about 1/4 less....about $8 per roll and they do take reservations. Takashi is just across the street and for the price you'll have a much better dining experience.To sum it up, if this had been my first sushi experience, I would never touch sushi again. I'm glad there are plenty of other place to eat sushi in Salt Lake. Because there is no way this place can stay in business.
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.
