Takashi truly is a neighborhood gem. Their sushi is clearly the best in Salt Lake.

I have never been disappointed with my visits to Takashi. Their rolls are always fresh tasting and they have a great mix of flavors. Do always expect a bit of a wait, as everyone else loves them as much as I do. In the event of a wait, there is a martini bar next door to the restaurant and they are happy to come get you from the bar when your table is ready.

The creativity and presentation of the omakase meal was great. Menu prices were surprisingly reasonable for the quality of food. overall an excellent meal.

We enjoyed our evening at Takashi's. Our server could have come around now often but we still had a great evening with great food

Takashi serves the best sushi in Salt Lake. Wthe menu features a good selection of hot and cold items. Portions are adequately sized and the pricing is well aligned with quality. Good selection of daily specials. Excellent drink menu including sakes, beers and wine.

As highly regarded as Takashi is in SLC it was disappointing that a Japanese restaurant would not have much to choose from entree list of items for a person with gluten intolerance and the server was not much helpful.

Ah, finally - great sushi! It's been too long! I started with the seafood hot and sour soup, which was outstanding. I then had the nigri sushi combo and the T&T spicy sushi for my main course. The fish was fresh and tasty. The T&T was definitely spicy (at least the sauce was), and just tasted great. My only complaint is it felt like they rushed us out once we were done the main course - no offer for dessert (not sure if they serve it) or coffee.

John, our server, very gracious and wonderful service. Enjoyed the agedashi tofu, tempura, and sashimi very much. The noodle bowl was fair, a bit overcooked, and broth needed more seasoning; Disappointed the Asian greens were simply broccoli and a few small bits if bok choy. The sushi rolls were good but a bit bland.

Takashi has amazing sushi. It's definitely the best I've had in Salt Lake City and comparable to very good sushi in larger cities. The wait staff is also very courteous. I'll definitely return.

Takashi is the best sushi restaurant that we've found in Salt Lake City (or Utah, for that matter). It has a large, frequently changing menu featuring many items that you can't find anywhere else in Utah. It is always crowded. Reservations are difficult to get (booking 4-5 days in advance gets you a 5:30 pm seating) and the service is generally good to excellent.

Our most recent visit fell short of previous ones (which had been 5-star visits). Our server was good, but not particularly adept at making reservations about items off the menu or of special note and the specials were a little less creative than usual. Everything was very good, but there were only a couple of stand outs.

Great food. You can get cheaper sushi for sure, but you can't beat the food and ambiance.

What a perfect anniversary dinner! We sat at the sushi bar and while talking to the chef, watched him lovingly, precisely craft each sushi dish we ordered. I think I used the word amazing a dozen times during his performance. This was our sixth time at Takashi's and it seems to get better every time!

Fabulous sushi. I've been here quite a few times before and this time I sat at the bar and branched out. I'm so glad I did! The Sunshine Roll is still an old favorite, but now I love the Summit and the Strawberry Fields as well. Best sushi I've ever had, and I'm from Seatte!
