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: 3.8
Stopped by for a nice lunch for my first visit to Tsunami at Union Heights and I was pleasantly surprised.  I’ve heard a lot about Tsunami over the years but have not had the chance to sample their sushi thus far.  I have to say the restaurant lived up to the hype.  The quality of the food, service and price are all spot on.  I made sure to get a VIP card as I’ll be back again…soon!

Quality: 4.5
The quality of sushi at Tsunami is a step above the rest to be honest.   Even on a simple roll the quality of the ingredients and preparation were top notch.  The combination of ingredients created some distinct and tantalizing flavors in my mouth.

Cleanliness: 4
The restaurant is in a fairly new area and the inside is nicely decorated and everything seemed very clean.  It’s a high-class establishment.  No small stoves and tinfoil hanging off the shelf here.  Very tidy and pleasant to sit down and enjoy some sushi.

Service: 3.5
The service was great.  I had a new waiter that was being trained but they were very attentive and my glass was never empty.  Service was great and I didn’t want for anything.

Price: 3.5
For a higher end sushi restaurant I would have expected the prices to be much higher.  Tsunami has been able to bring a quality product to their customers with some personal touches at a price that doesn’t break the bank.

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. Important to note that an average restaurant will get a 3 rating. Our rating for this Restaurant is as follows:

Overall Rating: 4.0
I just happened across Freestyle Sushi in a Facebook search and found their listing for a new sushi restaurant that opened in the Fort Union area and I was excited to check them out. Freestyle Sushi is not your ordinary sushi restaurant. They specialize in made to order sushi. You can select from their standard menu or you can have a roll made with only the ingredients you want. You move down the line selecting your protein, vegetables and then sauces and sides just like you would at Cafe Rio.  Another great item is they know that sometime you’ll bring your children and they may not have developed a taste for sushi.  They offer an Peanut Butter and Jelly roll that I know crave.  it’s a very odd experience at first to taste the combination but you’ll find yourself thinking about it days later.

Quality: 3.5
Although Freestyle Sushi provides quality sushi and reasonable prices very quickly they are not what I’d call fast food sushi. The fact is that most of the sushi restaurants in Utah get their food from the same supplier and so their sushi is as fresh as any other restaurant. While they are a new restaurant and learning they are very eager to provide a quality product. I’ve seen behind the counter here and seen the lengths they go through to provide quality product and I’ve seen their processes that are higher than what I’ve seen at other restaurants.

Cleanliness: 4.0
The restaurant is very clean as it’s a brand new restaurant. Everything is new and clean and they go through a lot of effort to provide a clean experience.

Service: 4.5
The service at Freestyle Sushi is great. This is one of the best parts of grabbing a quick bite for lunch. Many sushi restaurants can take 10-15 minutes to get you your food. If you don’t have time for lunch or dinner to wait you will love Freestyle Sushi.  Another thing I liked over traditional sushi restaurants is that they are extremely friendly, welcome you into the restaurant and make for a great experience that helps you through the process especially if you are new to sushi and not sure what to order.

Price: 4.0
The price is another great point in favor of Freestyle Sushi as you pay about the same price as you would for any other restaurants sushi rolls but they give you a generous 10 piece roll. It’s easy to be satisfied with one roll and completely full with two. Also if you compare the price to what you’d pay at other restaurants around the area you get a great deal of healthier food for the same price.
