Shimogamo Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
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?!
We have eaten at many sushi restaurants that were good and original. If you want really great sushi in a cozy family owned restaurant, this is the spot. This was a a hidden gem in Chandler that serves authentic sushi with the best and freshest ingredients. Great happy hour bargains and a superb wait staff who can tell you anything you need to know about the menu. Specials change each night. Not to be missed!
This cozy place in a strip mall on the SW corner of Dobson and Warner is a favorite. We try to stop by atleast once when we are in town--just need to plan ahead and make reservations as it is always busy. The staff is friendly, the food is excellent and inexpensive at baseline but even a better bargain during their happy hours. Love the Shimagamo roll, the big and spicy roll--in fact have not been disappointed with any of our choices. Worth the drive.
Our second dinner here this week. Never disappoints!! Had our favorite rolls and tried a spicy one with smoked jalapeños ( unfortunately don't recall the name of the roll)... amazing! Will be back soon..planning for next visit already. The happy hour includes a wide selection of rolls and alcohol options making early dinner even a bigger bargain. ( and more importantly the food is delicious)
This little neighborhood gem tucked away in a strip mall has rapidly become our favorite sushi place. The rolls are delicious,some unique especially the shimagamo roll with that light touch of lemon. We visit for at least one meal when in town.....provided I plan ahead. Always packed so reservations typically a good idea.
For years - This is my go to Japanese restaurant when I'm in the east valley. The food and service is always great. I discovered a new favorite dessert on this visit. If you like coffee - try the Japanese jello coffee dessert.
It was ok, not good or great. Fried pork gyozas were very good, as was the accompanying sauce. O-Toro sashimi - smelled too fishy, sliced too thick & not worth $32 price tag for 4 pieces. Rolls were ho-hum...have had better selection & quality at Dozo Izakaya. Server never asked if my partner wanted a 2nd glass of wine, anything else or if we wanted desert.
Shimogamo, is by far one of the best places for sushi n Phoenix. My husband and I have been here a few times it's been consistently good. He had the crazy roll and Las Vegas roll, both were really good, I had some of his crazy roll and loved it! I would definitely order it for myself when we go back. They also offer wonderful entrées, I had the grilled blackened snapper it was excellent ! Shimogamo also has chicken, pork and beef on their menu for those who do not like seafood. They are hidden in a strip mall, one of those hidden gems. I look forward to our next visit!
Probably the most authentic Japanese food you can find here in the Valley. Top notch sushi, sashimi, seafood and fish dishes, good tempura and salads. Haven't try the udon yet or sake. They have a wide selection of sake, server will help you pair sake with food. Portions are quite small, enough though if you're not starving. Overall, good dining experience, good service and atmosphere. Will definitely come back.
Shimo is simply the best authentic Japanese restaurant in the valley. The food, service and ambiance are without comparison. The sushi is ridiculously fresh and the taste is out of this world. Zach and his team behind the sushi counter deliver gourmet dishes that will knock your socks off. Don't come here for California rolls. Go to Safeway for those. Get the uni, monkfish liver or the buttery escolar. Thanks to Mr Yoshi and Mama San for another amazing meal.
We introduced friends to our favorite Japanese restaurant, and they were impressed. Everything was perfect on this visit. We ordered salads and some appetizers and asked for them to be served before our other orders. We were given a lovely table and had a nice time catching up with our friends---never once did we feel rushed---and we spent two hours dining. Our server was very attentive, checking in regularly to refill drink orders, etc. We ordered a variety of dishes on this visit and all were delicious. My friend introduced me to "agetashi tofu." I've never been a big fan of tofu, but I will be ordering that again. So much flavor and a creamy texture. Yum! If you haven't tried Shimogamo yet, you should. There may be days when they're busy and things are off just a little, but I'll always go back.
This was our third visit to Shimogamo. We made reservations ahead, and upon arrival were welcomed with a friendly greeting and promptly shown to our table. The food is always good---although our daughter thought the seaweed salad was too vinegary. We ordered salads and several sushi rolls. The happy hour menu contains many great bargains. One disappointment on this visit is that our rolls began arriving before we had been served our salads. We didn't think to specify that we wanted them first. We'll be back.
I have been going to this amazing restaurant for years and will continue to do so for many more!
It is by far the BEST Japanese restaurant in Chandler and is well worth the drive from anywhere in the greater Phoenix area. Just be careful you will never want to eat at those horrible chain sushi places like RA Sushi again. Yes this place is slightly more expensive but you can easily taste the difference. I HIGHLY recommend the citrus roll, escolar tuna and Mom's amazing Okonomayaki (as good as any I have had in Kyoto). All my Japanese customers ask me to take them there when they are in town. I can safely say that if you don't like the Japanese food here you just don't like Japanese food. I am not by any means bashing some of the fine Sushi restaurants in Scottsdale as I still on occasion will drive to them as well and would highly recommend some of them like Sushi Roku and Roka Akor, however both of the aforementioned places are notably more expensive as is typical in the higher rent neighborhoods they are located in.
