This cozy little restaurant is tucked into a mostly residential neighborhood very close to the University and the Hampton Inn where we were staying. The food was great and the atmosphere was charming. We will definitely go again.

This is an old standby for Japanese food in SLC. It has new owners and they are doing a good job. Their Gyoza is perfect and the Tempura, light and tasty. We ate well and took home quite a bit.

Found two hairs on one of our sushi rolls. Can’t unsee that and that abruptly ended what was just a halfway decent attempt at Japanese food. I’m from Seattle and I now know not to eat sushi in SLC :(

The place was busy but the atmosphere was nice. Sushi was really good, tempura was good but my beau ate mussels and he got sick afterwards. That’s why I have mixed feelings.

I've been to Japan and have had lots of Asian food, this is my top favorite! Rice is delicious. Pork cutlets and sauce is terrific. Gyoza and Sukiyaki has amazing flavor! Make a reservation, they get busy nightly.

My wife and I decided to drive about 30 mi to check out Kyoto, and were not disappointed! The service and food were great. Their Japanese dumplings were really good, especially the sauce. The tempura shrimp with veggies was terrific. I had the 'Geisha' sushi,...More
