Lingling has a great thing going here with the food but needs to work on the logistics of running a well oiled machine. The first time we went it was a Thursday night and only about 25% of tables were full. Service was quick, of course, as we were seated right away. Last night, a Friday night, there was about a 20 minute wait with all tables and sushi bar full with about 25 people waiting to be seated. It was chaos when you first walked in. No organization because the entry is so small and it was freezing outside, so everyone crammed into a non defined space between the door and hostess stand (the hostess was rarely there). They add you to the wait list, if you go up and ask to be added, no one knew who had already been added and who was just waiting for their table. It was a mess. Then as they called names, many people were outside because it was so crowded and, at first, didn't even call out names outside. They need to get some kind of pager system like Parkstone next door has, especially when it gets to be warmer weather and people will wait outside.

The Ben and Chase roll, the first time was excellent. Last night the portion was wrong. There was very little salmon and too big of a percentage of avocado and pineapple. The first time it was perfect. Disappointing.

The Teriyaki beef was excellent. We had it medium well and it was really tender. Lots of fresh grilled veggies with it.

Our waiter was EXCELLENT. Younger, slender guy with brown hair working the atrium area at the front with all the windows.

Service was 5 stars with our waiter.
2 Stars for front/hostess/check in service. This needs improvement.

Poor for special occasions because I think, based on last night, they would not be able to handle large groups without difficulty.

While strolling through the New Station Park in Farmington we discovered Sushi Monster. Coming to Utah from New York I was used to GREAT Sushi! Nothing fancy on the inside we were seated
immediately. We ordered from a fairly priced menu (2 pcs for 5.00) & was surprised that they had red clam on the menu! Our order arrived with a nice presentation. The Sushi was FRESH & the portions were LARGE! The Owner stopped by to check how we were enjoying our meal & we had nothing but praise for the entire meal. We've been to every Sushi Restaurant in and around Salt Lake City & I can honestly say ~ This is the Best Sushi in Utah.
It's worth a trip into Farmington just off of I-15 & 1100 West. It's in Station Park next to the Cinmark Movie Theater & Dancing Waters. Station Park is a new Super Mall with a great layout of architectural buildings with stores & restaurants ~ it's worth the trip. Call ahead if you need directions or reservations 801-966-8889.
I have my Visa receipt to verify my visit to the Sushi Monster
