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.

Takashi Voted Best Sushi in Utah

Takashi Strawberry Fields Sushi

Takashi Strawberry Fields Sushi

Takashi is located in downtown Salt Lake City and is voted by many to be the best sushi in Utah or the best sushi in Salt Lake County.  Their magical sushi roll creations are a step above the average sushi bar. Their names take after the Fab Five (the Beatles Strawberry Fields, Yellow Submarine, and Imagine) and a selection of movies (Puff the Magic Dragon, Forest Gump, Sebastian and The Little Mermaid).

Along with a creative flair for naming and creating traditional American sushi they also have an assortment of vegetarian sushi with ingredients like pickled burdock root asparagus, tomato, portabellas, green beans, sweet potato, peppers, jalapenos and sea salt.

They have a selection of wines by the glass or bottle both white and red wine.  If you want to be a little more traditional you can try the sake instead.  If you don’t want alcohol you can get ‘Mexican’ Coke or other Coke products, iced teas, limeade or juices.

Here are a few of the specialty rolls.

  • Strawberry Fields- escolar strawberry spicy sauce fresh chili peppers toasted almonds eel sauce.
  • Yellow Submarine -yellow tail yellow fin shiso spicy sauce yuzu flavored tobiko with tataki sauce.
  • Imagine – albacore tuna avocado shiso spicy tuna tartare tobiko.
