Shimogamo is definitely the best Japanese food I've ever had in Arizona. This restaurant cares about the quality of the food and wants to make sure you have the best experience possible. I went on a date with my fiance to celebrate her birthday. She and I asked the waiter for his recommendations from each portion of the menu. He recommended various rolls, nigiri, small plates, and shareable plates. He also recommended a bottle of sake that paired very well with our meal. At no point were we rushed or felt like the food was coming out too fast to be considered fresh. This place is the real deal for anyone who likes to try new things or top-notch Japanese cuisine. You will definitely need a reservation and I recommended reaching out at least two weeks in advance to ensure you get your first choice of time.

Very nice. We went to dinner here on a Wednesday night. We arrived about 15 minutes early for our 7pm reservation. The casual Sushi bar area had lots of customers enjoying their happy hour specials. We were seated in the dining room which was empty, nicely decorated and very quiet. Service was excellent. We had edamame and seaweed salad as an appetizer, both very good. For dinner we tried the Chirashi and the Sushi dinner. Both were excellent, the Chirashi especially. Rice was very good. All the fish were delicious, fresh, lots of variety and adequately sized. We also had dessert which was good. Overall, a very good value and we would definitely eat here again if we find ourselves in the Chandler area. 4.5 stars overall.

Love this tiny sushi restaurant!! Happy hour from 5-7 is a smoking deal!! Great selection and have never had a bad roll. The two of us were “starving “ and had 5! Rolls including the Shimagamo roll( just a hint of lemon), the Las Vegas roll, Big and Spicy and my favorite caterpillar roll. With two large Asahi and tip total was just over 70$. We eat here when in town and if lived in town would be there atleast weekly.

Delicious food and good service. This is a small place that you would never know about unless a friend had tipped you off. Really delicious and definitely worth the drive.

Love this place, excellent sushi, great value. The staff is excellent. Have to visit for a meal whenever in town town. However must pre plan and make reservations as always a busy place! Last visit was a Monday and not as packed as went early but quickly seemed to fill up. Shimagamo roll probably my favorite with just a hint of lemon but have never had a bad roll here. Did I say love this place?!
