Tin Roof Grill in Sandy
Simply Wonderful! A Joy To Dine At! Love The Ever Changing Specials! Some of the reviews that were sent to us. It's obvious that everything is made from scratch and with lots of care. The tapas being created daily is a great way to sample their menu. Offering a variety like pizzas, pastas, salads, and even Thai style noodles. Some of my favorites are the pulled pork sandwich, the lettuce wraps, the pork ribs, they are all fabulous. This is what I enjoy, a wonderful example of a small family owned restaurant where they really care about making great food. There's nothing rushed here, just a relaxed friendly atmoshpere with delicious unique entrees.

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)!

This is Salt Lake's premiere Indian restaurant with the most elegant ambience of them all. Bombay House serves Indian favorites, such as nan, samosas, curries and tandooris, and interesting chef's specials prepared mild, medium, or hot. Try the chicken, lamb, or shrimp coconut kurma, and the seekh kebab masala, with minced lamb, onions, and spices cooked in a special sauce. Gracious servers, most of them native to India, may also bring you vegetarian dishes and a variety of saags, which are cooked with spinach, onion, spices, cream, and yogurt.
