Not Very Good Food – I took three business clients here and in general we were very disappointed with the food.
As appetizers we got the gyoza which was mushy and the agedashi tofu. The sauce for the agedashi was extremely bland.
I ordered the combination chicken teriyaki and the shrimp tempura. Well, the chicken was like chicken jerky, the california roll that came with it was also very mushy. The tempura sauce had no flavor and the shrimp tempura was not that great. And the lettuce for the salad was limp.
The food reminded me of some Japanese food buffets in AZ and CA. And we all know that buffet food is not that great. So if you like buffet food I would recommend this place but if not I would stay away. I will no longer recommend this restraurant to anybody.
Fabulous Food! – I don't know what everyone's problem is with getting their checks split because I get mine split at the register every time I'm there without any problems. The food here is fantastic and there's always more than enough. I come here because it's not too trendy and they serve good quality food. The staff is sometimes kind of flaky but we usually still get everything we want. Definately worth a try if you're in the area.
overrated – am in slc for business and found suehiro through citysearch. came here for lunch with a party of 4. to simplify reiumbursement for business expenses we requested the bill be split. like the reviewer who rated suehiro a 4, we also spent $100+ and were not pleased that the bill could not be divided. on top of this, the sushi tasted fishy and not fresh. it was a big disappointment after the rave reviews. tsunami, which i didn't care for much either, has much better quality sushi although more expensive. i would rate suehiro overall a 5 had the other dishes not been good. we ordered other dishes, non-sushi, which were fine. but i don't think i will be coming back here. i was surprised to see that this place received such a high rating through zagat also. this place was not terrible, but beware of the fishy sushi...
From sushi to sukiyaki, you'll find an array of fine Japanese food--and plenty of it. – The Scene
Located in a Midvale strip mall, Suehiro tends to attract shoppers and families that live nearby. It's a bright and busy place where the service is well-orchestrated but you won't feel rushed. If you get one of the six barstools, you can watch the sushi chefs at work.
If you love sushi, go for the all-you-can-eat (limited to one hour) sushi bar. Sushi takes an entire page of the menu: nigiri sushi, temaki sushi, maki sushi rolls, and deep-fried rolls. Sukiyaki, tempura, teriyaki, donburi, udon--it's all available. If you can't decide, select two of your favorites, like shrimp tempura and chicken teriyaki, or beef sukiyaki and sashimi. Accompanied by miso soup, a green salad, and white rice, the overly generous main courses make finishing any meal a challenge.
Tempura heaven! – Suehiro offers some of the best tempura and teryaki around. The miso soup is really flavorful, and the service is good. It is a little spendy, but the food is well prepared. One of the best Japanese places in all of Utah. It is a GREAT place for a 1st date.
A Wonderful Discovery – Suehiro is probably my favorite Japanese Restaurant. Authentic. They do not have the slice and dice (teppan yaki) that most people associate with a Japanese place. Food is typical Japanese with a nice variety. Sushi is some of the best in town. I love sushi. I make it myself. My parents make it. I have been eating it for 40 years. I try it everywhere and in every state I go. Suehiro sushi ranks in the top 5 in my book. If you like true Japanese Suehiro is the place to go. Prices are reasonable for this type of food.
Not-So-Ordinary Sushi – I have been to nearly every japanese resturaunt in Utah and have eaten some very authentic food in Japan. This place remains authentic while maintaing taste. The service here can be daunting, but rarely. Suehiro is loaded with sushi you can't find anywhere else. Try the Confidential role and the J.D-Lite. The dishes are great and the sushi is even better. Don't miss out on one of Utah's best.
Can't go wrong – I have never seen this place too crowded or experienced bad service. Quality is consistent. Sit up to the sushi bar if you can. The chefs are never to busy to answer questions and will make a few suggestions of their own. Our sushi chef suggested a roll that wasn't on the menu and it was fantastic. Would also recommend the unagi maki or the crystal shrimp.
for the convenience of Suehiro customers – In the early years, I would rave about Suehiro to my friends. The flavor was authentic, reasonably priced, and the restaurant was never too crowded. But then the word got out about Suehiro, and it was the beginning of the end for this once fine establishment. Now making more money at any cost is the business plan at Suehiro, their dishes and service have taken on a MUCH more American flavor. At the sushi bar the sushi chefs seem more concentrated on who can slap together the most rolls between smoke breaks than producing a quality roll. And to top it off, at $20+ per person, they wont split the checks! This burden dismissed readily with a brief message in the menu for the convenience of our customers, Suehiro does not split checks. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. For me, convenience is best found somewhere OTHER than Suehiro.
