Our 2017 Guide to the Best Places to Eat in Salt Lake City
When people say, "I love sushi," what they really mean is, "I love fresh, top-quality sushi". Even if the atmosphere is quaint, the sushi chefs bow to you upon your entrance, and the food served promptly and artistically presented, you're not going to enjoy your meal unless the sushi is made from quality ingredients. Here are our choices for where to get the best sushi in Salt Lake City.
Simply Awesome! It was very difficult for me to list Takashi's because it is always so crowded, and I didn't want more diners finding out about it. The service is always above par, and I have never had a meal there that was not one of the best I have ever tasted. Owner and sushi chef Takashi Gibo uses only the freshest fish to create his artistic sushi and sashimi plates.

Kobe Japanese Restaurant - Olympus Hills Mall
An oasis of Japan in the heart of Salt Lake City, Kobe features the highest level of Japanese cuisine crafted with a creative touch.
Mike Fukumitsu purchased the Kobe a few years ago and we are so happy he did. The Kobe is AWESOME! Gone are the old-stale recipies, the old style management and even though they still honor the "Man vs Food's Hellfire Challenge" of a spicy tuna, it's all about nice, fresh sushi and an extensive ramen menu with some tasty offerings from the kitchen.
Mike has worked as a sushi chef for years and then just last year he spent the entire year in Japan studying the fine art of Ramen making.
You can enjoy some of the freshest sushi in town such as Aoyagi (Live Surf Clam), Boston Diver Scallops, Aji (Horse Mackerel), Kanpachi (Amber Jack), and Tai (Red Snapper)!
In addition, the Kobe now serves up some of the most Authentic Japanese Ramen Noodle Soup that you can find in Salt Lake. The Ramen, once brought to the table I looked down in the bowl and there were slices of roasted pork with a small pile of green onions and a large pile of noodles. But, it was the broth that I feel in love with, it was incredible and had a nice consistency (not too watery and not too gloppy) and the flavor was delicious. The most authentic ramen I have found in Salt Lake City.
