People were lined up waiting for the place to open at 5:30 on a Thursday. It quickly filled up. The menu is extensive. My waiter was very helpful & offered suggestions & was very attentive.

I love this place! The sushi is THE BEST in this state bc it's fresh. There are so many amazing and diverse menu items. Takashi has really dialed into each dish. Hope you can get a table. The waits are long

Salt Lake has a lot of very good sushi restaurants, but for whatever reason, it's the cleanest and freshest here.

Takashi is the man behind everything there, some of the best sushi and some of the most creative dishes I have ever had. Have been all over the world and he is amazing.
