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.
Been here twice, mixed reviews.The first time I went, I really enjoyed Pallet and for $26, I thought the steak was really delicious and the sides were great!This time, I ordered the halibut special and it was mediocre at best. When my server asked how I enjoyed it, I told her it wasn't my favorite and she asked if I wanted to try something else. Great customer service if you ask me! And my glass was never empty. Speaking of, they serve soft drinks in jars! Great details like this are awesome in the space. It's a super hip, vintage feel with fantastic lighting. The gnocchi is the best I have ever had--less pasta-y and more dumpling-y. Great sauce, slightly sweet. The truffle fries are good, but not fabulous. The seating is "community" seating which means you could end up sitting by complete strangers which is great if you are a people person ...and I am not. My first visit I watched the ladies next to me give me constant eye rolls. The second time I went, I called ahead for a private table ...and totally felt like a celeb! (Worth it!)
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.
Awesome place. 100 beers in bottle, 30 beers on tap. Lunch menu was 14 different kinds of sausage with 7 different toppings (choice of 2) and French fries with 5 different dipping sauces (choice of 2). Yes, it's a simple menu, but it quality and it's easy. Awesome. Staff very knowledgeable about beer recommendations - I like IPAs but wanted to try local. Had a 2nd row Acceleration IPA - clean, crisp, hoppy single and a 2nd Row Random IPA - red rye double, full flavor, good hop, excellent double. Both were quality recommendations.
Incredible food!Nobody does fusion sushi rolls like Happy Sumo. I adore the Vegas Roll (it's fried, y'all!) and the Playboy. Both are delicious and the sauce is amazing.The tempura fried veggies are truly the best I have ever had. My husband is not a fish person but he does like to go here as the steaks are good. Their menu is diverse enough to please everyone (and thank heaven for that!) Outside seating is nice if the weather isn't too hot or too cold, but I really love sitting in the cozy booths.Really cool, fun vibe happening here.
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.
Usually I love this place. The food is great and cheap! But the only complaint I have is the service. The waitresses always act rude and last time I was here they forgot about me and my friend. We waited an hour and a half for our food until the waiter came up and asked if we wanted our check! I told him we haven't even eaten it yet! And we had to wait another 25 minutes. My advise to the company is to get on top of things or you'll lose buisness.
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.
The servers are so nice and the food was amazing! Extremely kid friendly and accomodting to special diets. The kids loved the cheezy noo noos. I love their yummy soups and salads and the care they take with vegetables. We all loved the bread pudding. It would be a great place for a big party!
The service was friendly, the delivery was prompt and the food was great. The price was very fair and the servings were large. My only complaint is that the jumbo shrimp was dry and lacked flavor. I will definitely order from here again.
