Salt Lake City’s Best Sushi Restaurants

17 October 2010 By: Becky No Comment | Editor's Picks, Restaurant Reviews, headline

First class sushi in Salt Lake City?  Who would have thought?  That is one of the things I love about Salt Lake, it’s a city that never ceases to surprise.

There are several hot spots to get sushi in Salt Lake and everyone seems to have their own favorites.  Here are a few of my favorite.


Takashi provides complete evening: fun atmosphere, excellent service, and train-of-thought-interrupting sushi.  I’ve never heard of someone having a bad experience at Takashi.  I will say, come with deep pockets because Takashi is also the most expensive sushi in town but for a special occasion, it pleases.  You can read more about my favorite dishes at Takashi here. The owner of Takashi describes his restaurant  by “Pushing the envelope of contemporary Japanese cuisine, Takashi presents unrivaled sushi, sahimi and hot dishes in a memorable Utah downtown setting. It’s Salt Lake City’s most extensive selection of sake. Beer and wine.”


Have a romantic meal in an old church at Ichiban and you’ll find yourself surrounded by stained-glass windows and dark cherry wood.  While the service is consistently slow, the sushi is good.  They offer happy hour specials on Mondays and Tuesdays lasting the entire evening. “Ichiban Sushi has proudly served as Salt Lake’s locals favorite for sushi and Japanese cuisine for over 20 years. Housed in a 19th century historic church, complete with original brick and mortar and choir loft converted tatami rooms, it’s understandable why some have dubbed our sushi as “heavenly”.

Sapa Sushi Bar & Grill

You also must try Sapa Grill.  You can’t miss the 300 year old Vietnamese Stilt houses as you drive down State Street. The mystery of the buildings drew me into Sapa’s doors, but the sushi is just as inspiring as the historic setting.  Sapa offers modern pan-Asian cuisine in a traditional backdrop that simply takes you out of Salt Lake and into a different time and place. Make sure you also check out their webpage to learn about the amazing story of how the Sapa house found its way to Utah.
