Close to 1.5 hour wait, but worth it!! My wife, daughter and I went on a Wednesday night and had to wait for a table, but once seated, the service and food were excellent.

Without a doubt the best Sushi in SLC! Fun to be there for the line up 20-30 deep when they first open the doors. Not a huge fan of the strawberry roll or the escolar but every other one I've tried was fantastic.

I loved this place, recommended by a friend. Lively atmosphere and cool design. Creative choices on the menu, not just the same old thing. Sit at the bar or at a table, service is great either way. Rumor is they are opening their own bar...More

I agree with all of the foregoing. The place is too lively, active, and hip to have a little kid just sit there and crayon. That said, the waiters are all friendly and helpful so you won't get any negative stares, I don't... More

Best bet is to get there early. I tried to go back second night as a single to sit at sushi bar, madness. 50 Minute wait for sushi bar, 90 minutes for table. But worth the wait! Awesome
