Hands down this is the best sushi restaurant in downtown Salt Lake City! Excellent menu and lots of specials on the board each night. Get there early to avoid waiting, but if you do have to wait, it’s worth it 😊.

Came here while in town for a week. There was 1.5 hour wait to get in but well worth the wait. I tried different sushi rolls and other dishes until I was full. I loved the green papaya salad, seared scallops, and green tea. Everything...More
