I had lunch here with a business colleague for the first time a few weeks ago. It was great. I had miso soup and the 15 piece sashimi combo and found it excellent. Service was prompt and cheerful. I'll go again on my next trip to SLC.

Waitress spilled drinks on us, the service was awful. Add to that warm sashimi and loose rolls. Nobody got sick, but I'd say that was because we were lucky. This is a bad choice if you actually want and enjoy sushi.

I have dined here no less than 8 times. Starting with about 5 years ago. It was great then. I have no idea what has happened, but the food and service are just terrible. the dishes I used to order no longer resemble what I used to have enjoyed and the servers now are just a bunch of "ski bums"....

Lunch Food: 5/10 Staff: 5/10 Atmosphere: 5/10 Location: 5/10 Recommendation: There are higher quality sushi places for less money in the area. The food is average but too expensive for the quality. The staff is not bad but they are not especially friendly or helpful. The atmosphere is okay but doesn’t flow very well. The location is ideal for local... More

Have been regulars for some time given it's proximity to our home, for dining in but mostly take out. We have dined in and the wait has gotten longer. This time for take out, was told 25 minutes, showed up at 30 minutes, was given the check to pay...and STILL had to wait another 30 minutes for the order! It... More

Decent sushi. A bit pricey. All-in-all I was underwhelmed. That said, there was a big crowd for an early Friday night.

Have eaten at the Happy Sumo five or so times over the last year, and it has increasingly gone downhill -- particularly regarding the wait time for service. Our group of six recently dined there, and waited nearly an hour before receiving any rolls. The orders were not correct, and we were told well after ordering that some of the... More

Waited 1.5 hours for four rolls with no apology from management! Really? Waitress served others who arrived after us. Don't bother!

I stayed in a nearby hotel on business and this sushi place was within walking distance. I ordered the poke salad and a jazz (salmon, yellowtail, tuna) roll to go. The menu described the poke salad as being served on a bed of seaweed. I was choosing between the seaweed salad and the poke salad but decided on the poke... More
