Ok, well.. after having eaten at SLC's finest sushi establishments, as well as Seattle's, and some in California.. i have to say, SLC has amazing sushi. Happy Sumo, Mikado, Ichiban, and Takashi make rolls and serve sashimi that tastes every bit as good as what we get in the coastal states.

I found a place here in Seattle that is much like Happy Sumo at the gateway, and i was amazed at how Happy Sumo compares, in both ambiance and quality, to what i'm getting here now.

If you're a sushi lover, and you think it may be better somewhere else, you may be right, but in my travels, i have found that there's not much difference, if any.

I used to hear locals there say how much better it was when they went to some coastal state because the fish was "fresher", and i thought their claim may hold some merit, because i was stuck there for so long and had no basis for comparison. SLC is not lacking in the sushi department, and if anyone says otherwise, they're probably just talking out of their ass. People seem to like to always say how the grass is always greener (fish is always fresher?) somewhere else. In this instance, that is simply not the case.

Enjoy the sushi you have SLC. I sure did when i was there!

Good Sushi(now called Go Sushi) on 3300 S and about 2000 E have great sushi for a great price.

Sushi In Joy on 7200 S and about 650 E have good sushi also, been there a couple times on Friday nights, the same customers are there every weekend, they love it.

My friends are all obsessed with Happy Sumo, they are a great place. I love their variety of rolls.

Tsunami and Takashi are both on the pricy side, but I think Takashi is better than Tsunami.

Most sushi fish is frozen now-a-days anyway...no matter where in the US you are. Even here on Long Island...very little of the sushi you get comes from local day boats. If it is you have to mortgage your house to pay for it!!

Sushi across the country has really evened out in recent years. You are right...there are some really impressive sushi houses in SLC now.

If you are up north a bit...be sure to check out Osaka Sushi in Layton (just north of Layton Hills Mall across from Marie Callanders. Great stuff!

my favorite is still ichiban. i used to go there when i was younger, so there are great memories. but i also love the food and the atmosphere.

supposedly, back in the 90's, ichiban had a nationally (or possibly internationally) renowned sushi chef. anyone know if he's still there?

my wife and i also like happy sumo in provo, and there is a little place on center street in provo (demei or something like that) that isn't bad. it doesn't rank with the others, but the price is good.

overall, i love sushi, and do believe that we've got some good sushi places.

aaron out.

I thought the owner/chef at Ichiban was a Japan-trained female? At least about 7 yrs ago, that's what I read in the SLTrib.

could be. i was a teenager at the time and didn't know my front end from my back, so who knows what memories of mine were accurate and which ones were fabricated? i didn't even use drugs or anything–just pure, immature ignorance.
