For many, Sushi is an acquired taste. I have acquired it. I love it in all its many forms. Here are some good places to try.


Taki Sushi

420 East Bayaud Avenue
Denver, CO 80209-1804
(303) 282-0111

The Yellowtail Tuna appetizer is marvelous, as is the Poke. Taki Sushi has a very relaxed atmosphere.


Sushi Basho

2700 West Bowles Avenue
Littleton, CO 80120-1808
(303) 730-9999

This is a real go to place for me. The rolls are tremendous – make sure you try the King Roll and the Volcano Roll. Everything is fresh and beautifully prepared. All goes well with a large Sapporo or Kirin, especially if one of your children can drive you home.

Sushi Sasa

2401 15th St # 80
Denver, CO 80202-1143
(303) 433-7272

Suchi Sasa is expensive, but offers a good atmosphere and the kind of place that you walk into and determine — “I’m going to try something completely different today.” That sense of adventure makes the entire experience well worth it.

Sushi Den

1487 South Pearl Street
Denver, CO 80210-2226
(303) 777-0826

The Sushi Den has long considered Denver’s top sushi restaurant, though lately I’ve heard a lot of debate on the matter. It offers a solid presentation, great food and good service. It’s a bit pricey, but the fish is melt-in-your mouth delicious.
