Utah Sushi Roll Expert Review:
Our expert reviews take into account four factors: food quality, cleanliness of location, service and price. Ratings are on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being outstanding. Our rating for this Restaurant is as follows:

Overall Rating: 4.25
Tona Sushi in Ogden Utah is not your typical in and out sushi bar.  Each plate is lovingly crafted to be an sensual field trip.  Everything I’ve tasted there has been visually beautiful and tasted amazing.  The restaurant itself is a little deceptive as it’s in an older part of Ogden and it’s not much to look at on the outside, just a little green spot wedged in between some shops, but inside is an oasis of simplicity and spectacular tastes.  The decorations are minimalist but tasteful and the sushi is delicious!

Quality: 5
Tona’s quality was top notch.  Every dish smelled and tasted simply fresh.  The sushi looks painstakingly put together, like it was a piece of art rather than a bite to eat.  They get very high marks for quality as that is what they strive for.

Cleanliness: 4
This building appears very old on the outside, but inside was modern and clean. Nothing to worry about here.

Service: 4

The service was good, even though we snuck in just before the afternoon closing time the waitress was kind enough to serve us and not give us too much attitude.  Although she was in a rush she took the time to tell us about the specials and what was in each roll.  Our glasses were always full and I felt we were well taken care of.

Price: 4
You get what you pay for at Tona.  Is it cheap sushi where you can get half off or all you can eat, no.  Is it something you probably won’t get anywhere else, quite likely.  You pay good money for great quality, taste and originality.
