Overall Rating: 4.5
Sushi Monster gets a high overall rating because the food was very tasty, very fresh and they had a good lunch special. This is a great fit for a Utah restaurant as Sushi Monster has the equivalent of Utah Fry Sauce for sushi. Their Yum Yum sauce is just that, like fry sauce for sushi rolls. Now I love fry sauce and I love sushi, but I instinctively turned up my nose at this combination. I thought it a bit of a travesty to put fry sauce on sushi. It conjures up images of ketchup and sushi for some reason witch just sounds wrong. I was pleasantly mistaken though with their Yum Yum sauce. Especially for tempura rolls, this is a great combination. I’m not saying this works well for every roll and all the time, but it was a nice departure from the standard soy sauce or even eel sauce. I’d highly recommend it and say give this Utah original a try.
Sushi Monster has a great selection of sushi long rolls as well as bento boxes and other asian delights. The quality was top notch. The vegetables popped right out to me. They were larger Julienned style slices and they tasted super fresh. The quality was top notch.
This is a brand new restaurant so it’s spotless. The decorations are minimalistic and there’s not a lot of surface to get dirty. Everything I saw was clean and added to the overall experience of the restaurant.
The service was good, not the most overwhelming, but nice. There was a little longer wait than normal to get our food, but it’s also one of the busiest sushi restaurants I’ve seen at lunch time. Typically you’ll see 2-3 other customers during a weekday lunch, but we saw at least 10-12 people dining with us. This also leads me to believe we nailed the quality and overall rating. If a small sushi restaurant in Farmington Utah can support this kind of traffic they must be doing something right.
The price is typical for a sushi restaurant, but what made it good is the lunch special where you could pick two rolls from a healthy list of options. We tried the Rock and Roll Roll, Dynamite Roll, LA Roll and the Krab Stick Roll and were delighted with each. After tip we were looking at a $25 bill. A bit hefty for lunch, but this wasn’t McDonalds and I feel we definitely got our moneys worth.
