Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 May 2013

I visited Ginza again for the first time in probably 6 years. This little, non-descript sushi bar near downtown SLC used to be a favorite of mine and I would visit 2-3 times/year. But a job change and different travel locations have kept me away until this month. I recognized the main sushi chef, but little else. There were only a few cars parked out front when I drove up at noon for lunch. Inside there were only about 5 other guests. The atmosphere and mood seemed very subdued, with little energy. Service was slow and cumbersome. My combination bento box of sashimi and tempura was only average. The tempura was heavily breaded and fried too long. The sashimi was flavorless. I was very disappointed and will have to strike a once favorite from my "must visit" list on future trips.

It may not be the cheapest, but its worth every cent! Try the baja sunset for one of the best rolls ive ever had anywhere.

Really nice sushi and close to down town. It's a little small so get there early for a good seat. Try their special rolls.

Most of the people I spoke to in town told me to go to Naked Fish but I decided to peek into Ginza and that was all it took. The outside looks a little run down but don't let that fool you. The inside is clean and very modern. I went in with a colleague and we asked the chef to make us something with sashimi and sushi... his choice. We were blown away. Better that Naked Fish and the service was outstanding.
