Saola Restaurant & Lounge

About us

In the City Between the Canyons, Saola is all at once an enlivening escape and a gathering place to remember life’s fleeting achievements. Whether you're toasting a new personal record or simply winding down after a thrill run, Saola is the perfect place to live it up. A stylish dining venue featuring Asian classics and innovations in an intimate yet relaxed setting at the bottom of Big & Little Cottonwood Canyons.


Established in 2019. Utah's newest destination for modern Asian in a new contemporary setting. Saola offers classic, vegan, or vegetarian with gluten-conscious items. Come enjoy your favorite classics in the Salt Lake Valley's newest restaurant. Perfect setting for business, dinner, or come enjoy sitting at our bar and relaxing with a lemongrass mojito. The poet Horace used the term 'carpe diem or live for today' to express the idea that one should enjoy life while one can. We strongly align and resonate with this and think you will too once you have had the experience of eating at Saola. See you soon!
