Excellent, very fresh sushi and nigiri and shashimi. Nice atmosphere. They do not take reservations so if you are going on the weekend (Fri or Sat night), go early. You may wait up to 90 minutes to get seated.

I have eaten sushi all over the US and this is absolutely one of my favorite places. The fish...Oh the fish! It is so fresh and delicious. They have MANY varieties of fish not usually found at most sushi restaurants. And although I am a "fishy" and never eat beef, their stacked beef appetizer is to die for. The atmosphere... More

This is by far the best sushi restaurant in Salt Lake City! Not only is the food top quality but the atmosphere is great and the service good too! It seems there is always a wait but if you have the time. The wait is worth it!

While this is not the best sushi I've ever had, it is the best overall place in the state. The crowd is fun, and the restaurant is focused on food and service. Long waits on weekends, so plan accordingly.

I'm from California and did not feel that the sushi was all that outstanding, but I'm not sure what else is available in the Salt Lake area. I was impressed with the breadth of the menu and was particularly impressed with the lamb shank, which literally just fell off the bone, and the flank stake which came with a very... More

While in town girl a conference we kept hearing great things about this place and it did not disappoint. Enjoyed appetizers at the small bar area while waiting and the bartenders were super nice. Once seated enjoyed everything we ordered and food came out quickly once seated. Don't miss if you like sushi!

Reservations aren't accepted for small parties but you can go early, put your name in, and come back later. You'll understand why this busy place is so popular once you go! Their pork belly appetizer was incredible and we ordered each of their speciality sushi rolls. Not only were they a work of art but they were perfectly balanced. The... More

Takashi pushes the envelope of contemporary Japanese cuisine, presenting unrivaled sushi and sashimi along with innovative small plates and hot entrees in a memorable downtown setting.

Whether you prefer a bar side seat with a view of the action at the cutting boards, or a cozy table for two, our friendly and knowledgeable servers will guide you through the menus, the specials board, and our excellent collection of premium sake, beer, wine and fabulous specialty cocktails.

WHILE MOST SEATING IS ON A WALK-IN BASIS, we do offer a few early reservations through Open Table.
