Whether you prefer a bar side seat with a view of the action at the cutting boards, or a cozy table for two, our friendly and knowledgeable servers will guide you through the menus, the specials board, and our excellent collection of premium sake, beer, wine and fabulous specialty cocktails.

Some of the best sushi I've had

We read about this place in a salt lake city guide. We arrived without a reservation and were told it would be 45mins, they took out number and said 'there's a bar next door, we'll text you when your table is ready'. Perfect! Well worth the wait.

Great Sushi. Everything was fresh tasting. Beer, wine, and sake drinks. Atmosphere and service was great as well. Just be prepared for a wait. it happens when a restaurant is doing it right.

We ate here for our anniversary and had high expectations due to the trip advisor reviews. I have to say we were disappointed.. The gyoza was fantastic, but the sushi rolls were just ok. We are frequent customers at a sushi place in Ogden (yes, Ogden) and this place was definitely sub par.. The atmosphere was ok, the waitress was... More

This is great if you are a hipster who likes standing around scratching his beard for an hour and texting while waiting for a table. We are not, so we gave them our cell number and went elsewhere to get a drink. After an hour, we came back and enquired after our table - we were looked at with a... More

we sat at the sushi bar and had a lovely time. everything was fresh and well executed. the atmosphere is cute but beware they stop serving lunch at 2:00 and reopen for dinner later in the day. we walked in at 1:40, but had no problem sitting down and getting everything we wanted.

We waited at the bar for a table. The bar tenders are very knowledgeable about their drinks, including the Japanese Whiskey's. They have their own ice made specifically for their whiskeys. Service was great, I eat here several times a year and love it, this time the sushi was not as great as I expected. It was nice to visit... More

I've done a few business dinners here now with 10 plus people. Restaurant was very accommodating and got us a table fairly quickly. Sushi is very good and playing is superb. Highly recommend just be prepared to wait an hour or more during busy hours.

Love this place. Try the mussels as well! Not a single roll will disappoint! And if you have to wait for a table, pop over next door to Christophs for a delicious drink!
