Salt Lake City's Top Ranked Japanese Restaurants
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 -
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)!

Kyoto Sushi & Japanese Cuisine
One of Salt Lake City's favorite Japanese restaurants, Kyoto embraces diners with its simple yet cozy decor and pleasant atmosphere. This restaurant has been named by New York magazine as one of the top ten restaurants in Utah. The sushi selection has consistently garnered local awards as well. The food is delicious and the decor and service are replete with traditional touches. Lunches are a great value at around $7; dinners range from $12 to $18 and include soup, salad, steamed rice, and green tea. This is a popular restaurant and can sometimes be crowded on weekends, so call ahead for priority seating. The quality of the food is outstanding and the sushi is fresh.

Enjoy the finest steak, chicken and seafood prepared teppanyaki style at your table by your very own chef or enjoy fresh sushi and sashimi at our spacious sushi bar. The Benihana Sushi Bar is often overlooked in favor of the teppanyaki-style cooking upstairs, but sushi lovers will quickly note that their Japanese born and raised sushi chefs are a real find.
Ichiban Sushi & Japanese Cuisine
Chosen by the prestigious Zagat's guide as the best sushi in Salt Lake City and one of America's top 100 restaurants for four straight years. Sushi and Sashimi flown in fresh from the west coast coupled with traditional Japanese dishes prepared by skillfully-trained chefs provide the utmost in variety and flavor. The award-winning interior of the restaurant features feng-shui elements and a compelling salt-water aquarium.

Suehiro Japanese Restaurant
Come to this simple, down-to-earth japanese/sushi restaurant and expect to eat well and be treated with kindness by the personnel. Ideal for the sushi/tempura fix that we all crave at times. On my last visit, the food was amazing and the chefs know what they're doing, very personable. One of the best sushi restaurants in all of Salt Lake. My friends always order the "boxes" for lunch or dinner and they love it.
