    I can't wait for the new Yoshi's to open in Draper! I live in UT County, work in Riverton, and am always calculating whether or not I can make it over to Yoshi's during my lunch hour. I find it curious, though, that someone on here would want to hold them up in comparison to an expensive Japanese restaurant.

    You know, there's a Chinese restaurant down here that I think is pretty good. However, when I went there with my friend from Taiwan, she said it was all right, but not that authentic. OK. Fine. I'd take her opinion more to heart if she wasn't snacking on freeze-dried squid at the time.

    My point is that it's true you won't be greeted by someone in a kimono when you go to Yoshi's. No one is going to chop or cook stuff at your table, but then again, you're not going to be set back $75 for the food either.

    So relax. It's good food! Try a Matrix roll for me (sigh)and tell them to hurry up and open in Draper! I'm starving!

    This bargain huntin' gal has found that after I have had my own personal shopping marathon at Fashion Place Mall...that there is no better place to refuel for mere pennies than Yoshi's for anything from a simple and delicious California Roll to the mind-blowing Mario's Madness; my meal is never complete without a fortune cookie and that magical red cream soda.

    Congratulations, Yoshi's! I can't wait to visit you and your friendly faces for more yummy bargains in Draper

    I drive all the way from Riverton just to get Yoshi's! I love their mario's madness sushi roll. I know it's not all authentic Japanese food, but I don't care what country their bonsai soup is from-I could still eat it daily. I'm glad to hear that they have a location closer to me now.

    I drive all the way from Riverton for Yoshi's Mario's Madness sushi roll. I LOVE it. I'm glad to hear there will be a location out closer to me. I agree about not everything there being authentic Japanese food, but I don't care what country the Bonsai soup is from-I could still eat it daily.

    I LOVE Yoshi's! I used to work right down the street, and went every day. The food was always consistent, my Samurai roll with the cilantro dill sauce was excellent. The people made it the best part. They would see me walk in the door, and by the time I got to the register they would have my order already started for me. Of course that might be because I am too predictable. LOL!

    Way to go Yoshi's! Your new location in Draper is closer to my new office building - and I will see you every day again soon!

    I can't believe you are writing an article about Yoshi's in the newspaper. I find this a waste of news and an insult to Japanese food. No one should ever go to Yoshi's thinking they are eating Japanese food. It is worse of an attempt than Fazoli's makes with Italian food. Yoshi's "Japanese food" does not even come close. Every native Japanese would be insulted if American's really thought that they ate like they do at Yoshi's. If you are going to write an article on food, please give the nation's food a little more credit. Yoshi's is a very sorry attempt at authentic Japanese food (Teriyaki Stix falls in the same category).
