    Incredible, diverse food for a good price. The only thing that would make the experience better, and put it along side Michelin starred restaurants that I've been to, would be a better balance of the food - perhaps something cleansing other than the ginger that comes with sushi.

    We visited on our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed. Our server Paul was very good and explained the different dishes. Service was fantastic and the food was delicious. We had all seafood dishes and I will have to say that the Kiso was to die for. We really enjoyed the evening.

    There is no other Sushi restaurant that can come close. I've been eating sushi for 25+ years and dining at Shimogamo made me feel like all of the other restaurants were "Imitation Sushi" by comparison. It's unbelievable. Staff was attentive and friendly, the service was tops, the quality of food was out of this world. The sushi was so fresh it's as if we were on a pier and it was caught five minutes before. You will not regret experiencing Shimogamo.

    This place is such a gem! Best sushi/sashimi in the Phoenix area. And hidden in a strip shopping mall. We eat here often. Last night we enjoyed the tuna tataki, fried oysters and fresh oysters on the half shell to start. We always finish with the assorted sashimi platter to really get the most out of the fresh fish. We are wine enthusiasts and are starting to educate ourselves on sake. We enjoyed a half bottle of the Dassai 45. Highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar for a great experience! Service is excellent, everyone is super friendly - it's a family owned place. The guys preparing the sushi are lively, fun and attentive. Always go above and beyond. I'd also like to commend Paul, who has great recommendations for food and wine, and recalls what you enjoy eating and drinking. I strongly recommend reservations as it's not a large place - and they have added a bar in the back area of the restaurant, which I believe is open seating. It's always busy and bustling, but a really great vibe. If you haven't tried it, you're really missing out. It's truly phenomenal.

    I'm from New England. Some of the best Sushi restaurants are there. I don't think I could suggest any improvements at Shimogamo. The owner is an older Asian gentleman who constantly patrols the place, maintaining the quality of all aspects... I like that. Food was outstanding. We ate at the bar and the service was impeccable. The bartenders knew their stuff and were very personable. I think we had about 4 drinks total, a few rolls, some sashimi, and some appetizers. The bill was around $250, which was quite a bit more than I wanted to spend, but hey, it's an inescapable law of the universe that you get what you pay for.

    We did the omakase experience and it was truly amazing! My husband and I consider ourselves sushi snobs and this went above and beyond our wildest expectations. The uni shooters are unlike anything we’ve ever had and are a must have. The quality of the sushi is phenomenal. You’ll be doing yourself a major disservice by not eating here!

    We had reservations and our table was ready for us. No delays at all. We had noted when we set up our reservation that we were there to celebrate a birthday. Unfortunately, but not a deal breaker, there wasn't any acknowledgement of that fact. The sushi was excellent!! The best on the east side of Phoenix. Service was spot on and the team of servers were friendly and attentive. The pacing of bringing our dishes out was also excellent. Sometimes, at other restaurants, pacing is horrible. But at Shimogamo we were paced to experience the dishes before us before something else arrived. We appreciate that. We've been coming here for years and haven't had any complaints. The staff is also continuing to mask up which we applaud!

    Best in the area if you love Japanese dishes and sushi! We enjoyed 6 or 7 plates shared for two including sushi, the oysters were precious little packages of joy, Tuna Tataki definitely a must. Service is impeccable - it’s a really special night out!
