I’ve never been happier to see a man with a sharp knife.

Sunny Tsogbadrakh was famous to fans at Mikado and at Naked Fish for precision sushi. And for being a super-nice guy.

Since the demise of those restaurants, he’s popped up here and there but now he has his own home, Nikko Sushi & Ramen in, wait for it, Kaysville.

When he opened Nikko with partner Ken Ulziibayar, Tsogbadrakh immediately had one of the best Japanese joints in town. Only it’s out of town. Before you start squealing about driving to Kaysville, let me point out that the time it takes is 23 minutes. It takes 43 minutes to drive to Park City. And Nikko’s equals or betters any restaurant up the hill. Take my advice and surrender to Tsogbadrakh—ask for omakase and leave yourself in the chef’s hands. Pick up the May-June issue of Salt Lake magazine for a full review, or just go and eat for yourself.
