    My wife and I spent some time in Japan. Finding quality sushi in the States is difficult. This place is a gem. Prices may seem high to most people who don’t have experience with real good sushi. We eat here on occasion and it never disappoints.

    This neighborhood gem is one of our regular spots and we always enjoy eating here. They have added a new bar area towards the back dining area which is quite nice. It is a bit louder when sitting at the tables next to the bar. The food is always delicious and service was great. The wagyu stew did not disappoint as well as the scallops and the tofu on the daily special menu. The menu has been pared down a bit, but I was disappointed to see less vegetable/vegan dishes offered. I miss the vegetable tempura appetizer, they only offer a fish and shrimp option now.

    Fabulous evening at this restaurant all around. We were seated in the back room which had a quiet and more intimate setting great for chatting with friends. The front when you walk in is extremely packed and very busy, which is great but for this visit we wanted to be able to talk. Thankful we had a reservation and definitely recommend one. Only reason not five stars is because both times our drinks from the bar seemed to take a while to arrive after ordering them. Otherwise, fantastic!

    Shimogamo is an awesome neighborhood spot with great food and friendly/attentive service. Customers during this visit were all ages including one father there with his 4 and 7 year old sons, creating yet a new generation of sushi lovers. Specials as well as regular menu items are fabulous and sushi chefs are sociable and willing to adapt options to please patrons. Owner, Yoshi, is a gem and works the room, making everyone feel welcome.

    Paul was able to accommodate our Omakase experience, even though we didn't pre-order it, which was an amazing surprise! We were blown away by the food adventure we were taken on. The staff was so energetic and knowledgeable about everything they prepared. The fish was presented so beautifully and articulated in an artful, mouth watering way. Each drink was crafted with care and notes of sweetness, bitters, smoke and savory delighted to palate for another sip or pairing with fresh cut fish. I can't rave enough about this Chandler GEM! Date nights just got so much better!

    Last night my wife and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary. After having read reviews about Shimagamo, we decided this is where we wanted to celebrate. I set the bar pretty high as I really enjoy high quality sushi. To me, sushi is about the freshness of the fish, the preparation and the appearance. Everything we had was was like eating a piece of art and had its own unique flavors. I must say, Shimagamo probably ranks in the top couple of restaurants I’ve had sushi and can’t wait for another special occasion to go back. Everything we had was delicious.

    We visited for our Anniversary and we had an amazing Omakase experience with Grace. My husband and I gave up ordering the same stuff we know and gave into this delicious experience of Japanese cuisine. Our first dish served was the Shimogamo Shooters and when you do, there is a burst of flavors that make you do a dance in your chair! Yup taste buds are awake now. Absolutely Devine. Follow up with Oysters on a half shell with 3 different flavors. Seriously? These flavors on a oysters made you chew😀 I never tasted most of these flavors and all in one was exceptional. We were so excited to see what’s next. Follow up by sliced Halibut with black sesame and sea salt with an exquisite Serrano chili sauce. This place knows how to take care of their guest wanting to try the Omakase experience. There is so much more to share but you have to try it for yourself and sit back and enjoy. The experience is set at a certain price of $120 but you will definitely go over that budget easily and for 2 of us we shared the experience and the price was high but we expected it for quality seafood and ingredients we received. We were not disappointed at all. I do suggest a group of at least 3-4 to share this experience and the price will you pay is approx $120 then plus your own drinks. Dessert is included in the experience and was Sake Cheesecake with a sake mousse like cream on the side. It’s was superior! We will definitely be back and try the menu and perhaps a few sushi rolls. Thank you to Grace who guided up thru our experience. We loved everything we tried.
