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.

The Happy Sumo is a nice sushi restaurant with lovely decor and atmosphere.  They have a wonderful website with full color photos of what their sushi should look like.  I went there with a group of friends for work and they were very accommodating even though we were early for lunch.

Food Quality: 3.5
The food here is good and everything tasted fresh.

Cleanliness: 4.0
This is a newer restaurant even though it’s not the first in the building.  The dining area is clean and everything looks nice.  No worries about eating here.

Service: 3.0
The hostess was nice and even let our large group in early for lunch.  We had some nice drinks and talked while we wait but our orders were taken quickly and our food came out quicker than I anticipated.  Of course we were the only ones in the restaurant that early but I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Price: 3.0
Happy Sumo is in a business park and is priced that way.  While they do have some specials that are nicely priced, this isn’t a half-off sushi restaurant.  You pay full price for good sushi.

Happi Hashi looks like a great place to get some sushi and Hibachi grilled food.  I’ve only been for the sushi thus far for lunch and it was a typical sushi experience.  There were some nice rolls and I enjoyed the flavors.
Quality: 3
The smell and taste of the sushi was a little fishy but it went down just fine.
Cleanliness: 3
The restaurant seems rather dated but with some nice decorations.  Nothing jumped out at me but it seems like a nice established restaurant that has been around for a while.
Service: 3
The service wasn’t great.  It took 3-4 minutes before anyone greeted us and they weren’t overly friendly.  Have to try them again to see if I  have the same experience.
Price: 3
The price is typical for a sushi bar. I didn’t see any specials or anything that seemed like a discount.
