Sushi was amazing! So fresh and creative. On the downside, and why I rated them a 4 is it was pretty slow. The place was slammed on a Tuesday night. Folks lined up outside before the doors even opened. However, I would definitely recommend as...More

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 😊.

Disappointing that couldn't make reservations unless we had a part of 6 or more but definitely worth getting there early to get a table. The sushi was very good. Nice atmosphere and staff were great.

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.
