We went there for lunch and had the best fish you can imagine. It is so fresh that you will think you are in California, where we had the best sushi in the country!

I came on a recommendation from a friend. She said it was excellent...and it was. I had a lunch special...basically a bento box without the box. It was excellent. Also felt like a great value. Best $20 I've spent in SLC.

I agree with all of the foregoing. The place is too lively, active, and hip to have a little kid just sit there and crayon. That said, the waiters are all friendly and helpful so you won't get any negative stares, I don't... More
