“Hands down best sushi in SLC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We are Takashi regulars - go about once a month. The quality of the ingredients is fantastic, the preparation is excellent and the ambience is relaxing and fun. Their rolls are interesting and tasty - we love the Strawberry Fields and Caribbean. The asparagus appetizer is also a favorite along with the Asakura. It is a pricey restaurant, but worth it.

“Wanted the best Sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

Friday night, we got on the list, told would be 1 hour, they would text my cel. Walked over to the Galivan Center, texted in 30 min. Started with the Zinfandel it is fantastic, I continued with it through the meal. We ordered 10 different rolls, they were all very good. Ok extremely good. I love a sweet wine for desert. Our server Court, was attentive and enjoyable.

“Dinner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food was average at best. The service was terrible. The overall atmosphere was nothing special. I would not recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good sushi.
