Shimogamo is the ideal sushi restaurant- modern setting Zen chic - food freshest and most carefully prepared and presented- staff is friendly and alert and there is the ever present Yoshi San-who makes hospitality the Shimogamo way- Sensei - Domo Arigato!

The sushi and sashimi were fresh and well prepared. The staff was caring and explained the menu and made a few good recommendations. The owner was on premises and was extremely friendly and caring about his food and service.This is a “will go to again pace.

Took my mom here for dinner. Service was amazing and quick. We were eating within a few minutes of ordering. Sushi was the best we’ve had in Arizona, maybe the best we’ve ever had!

Their pan fried gyoza is perfect. Tried several of their signature rolls...surf and turf, alaskan roll and the Panka King Crab roll. You can't go wrong with any of it. Service top notch

Sushi was ok. Nothing to rave about. Overpriced. Doesn't compare to the sushi bars in Los Angeles. The wait for the meal to be served was the longest I have ever experienced, and the place didn't appear full. 35 minutes is a bit much. The server was good, always filling out drinks.

Wonderful food. Wonderful atmosphere. But one of my orders took almost 30 minutes to reach my table. No offer of a single sushi or something else to apologize for such a late delivery of a VERY expensive dish.

I'm a sushi snob, and this place is the creme de la creme of my experiences (in USA). Shimogamo has the quality, the special orders and high-end meats/fish are available, and all the food and service make it a top of the food chain restaurant.

This restaurant is epic! They are so friendly and kind. The dishes are really impressive. All dishes tasted so good. Sashimi & sushi quality here are top level. It is so fresh and delicious as the one's in Japan or Korea. The plating is also amazing like fine dining. It would be a perfect place to celebrate special occasions. I will definitely come back to this restaurant.

Hands down the best sushi in town. Go no where else. It isn't the least expensive sushi, but that is because they get quality fish and have expert sushi chefs. The service is impeccable and the waitstaff and chefs are always kind and entertaining.

I was very excited to try Shimogamo for the first time given the superb reviews. I have not had great experiences recently with restaurants and food quality so I was keeping my expectation low. However, Shimogamo blew me away. The quality of the food and the attention to details are admirable. I loved every single dish that we ordered. My partner was too and our tastes are different sometimes. It is hard to be a crowd pleaser. Yet, I heard clamoring all over the restaurants about the same thing, "everything was sooo good." I agree whole-heartedly. Must try is the Shimogamo shooter, and any of the Daily special dishes. Highly recommended.

This is by far the best sushi restaurant in the East Valley and possibly in Phoenix, especially as Teeter House has closed. The owner, Yoshi, is very involved and ensures all the food is fresh and that your experience is a great one. We sit at the sushi bar and love chatting with the sushi chefs. Some of our favorite items are the Miso Cod and the Oxtail Roll. We also love the Assorted Sashimi platter. We've been numerous times and have always enjoyed everything we've tried. Fresh and perfectly prepared. If you are truly a sushi/sashimi lover, this is your spot.
