    The seasonal lobster shrimp wontons were outstanding! Note: if you hate cilantro though, avoid this dish but you're missing out!

    Totally outstanding place. Ingredients can't be more fresh indeed. Everything you order will blow you away. My suggestions: sit at the bar and order a Red Dragon or a Rainbow Roll. AMAZING.

    Even after 25 years of service, this place always has a wait line and is VERY well worth the wait as well..

    Make sure to drink your Sake out of a box. It means your life will be overflowing with everything good!

    Some of the best sushi I've ever had. It's really nice inside, and it's not too expensive.

    Olivia Bolt · October 17, 2013
  • Andy B.

    Rather surprising (not in the good way) that a place with prices like this where I've had so many business dinners doesn't have WiFi...

    Andy Boudreaux · October 4, 2013

    #8 most fined restaurant in Denver for health code violations. If u don't believe me. Google it.

    Ted Archuleta · July 27, 2013
  • Rebecca A.

    This place was amazing! if you think the prices are too high, then go find yourself some mediocre sushi somewhere else. Tis place is legit, fresh, and the best sushi you will ever experience!

  • Nate T.

    Get a reservation even if they tell you that it isn't needed. Waited for 1 1/2 hours when they said the wait was 30 to 45 minutes.

  • Betty B.

    Ask if sushi chef, Corey, can make your last roll (chef's choice). You won't regret it!

    Betty Boots · April 23, 2013

    A sushi place 1000 miles from water that absolutely rocks it & can go head to head with the best anywhere!!!

    Sean Besser · March 8, 2013
  • Pawel M.

    Try the appetizers Spicy Crispy Tuna and Dynamite... Awesome! However, downhill from there to average sushi rolls land.

    Pawel Mac · March 5, 2013
  • Chris L.

    28/30 Zagat? you'd want your mind blown. For a few seconds, at least. 2 hours and many $16 nigiri's later...good, but underwhelming.

    I'm done with Foursquare. I think I've made all the best recommendations. My final one will be don't take any recommendations from the next mayor. :)

    It's been over 25 years since Sushi Den opened and there's still a wait every night. That's some real staying power, folks. [Eater 38 Member] Read more
