We like several sushi places, but our destination for a very special meal is Shimogamo. The atmosphere is lovely, the food is incredible, and the staff is very nice and efficient but not cloying. The tsunami roll, pictured above, is gorgeous and delicious. Prices are fair but a bit higher than at other places so the trick is to go... More

I went solo on a business trip. I sat at the sushi bar, and didn't feel out of place. The owner and his wife both were ingratiating and friendly. The sushi chef was friendly and conversant, and prepared an excellent sushi platter. There was yellowtail, salmon, tuna, sweet shrimp, Eel, octupus, and more. There were many other restauranteurs there, and... More

Friendly and good service in a cozy small place.

What made the dinner a very positive experience was the... More

Finally, we have found a wonderful Japanese restaurant in the Chandler / Phoenix area. Located in a small place in the South/West corner of Dobson and Warner Road. The several items we tried were simply wonderful. Japanese cuisine is best described as simple, straightforward, fresh, colorful, balanced, and artful. Shinogamo executes on all of these. From the appetizers, sushi, sashimi,... More

Having read previous reviews and being a devotee of sushi, I had high hopes for Shimogamo. Sadly, the food, for the most part was simply average. The highlight of the meal was the fried Gyoza. The fried oysters were over breaded and the sushi was not particularly fresh, attractive or tasty. The service was attentive and friendly, but we would... More

I found this little restaurant to be very friendly and it was frequented by a lot of locals that were visiting regularly. A bit of the "Cheers" of sushi restaurants. The quality of the food was excellent as was the rice to fish ratio.

I love this place. It's quaint and the food is excellent. It's my favorite sushi place in the southeast valley. They usually have toro and Uni.

I love having my go to Japanese Restaurant Shimogamo, where the fish is always fresh, quality excellent and the prices are reasonable for Arizona (remember we live in the desert). The Service and Sushi Chefs are always on top of their game. We frequent here at least once a week whether for Friday lunch or weekend dinner. always to note:... More

Ate here based on a recommendation whilst working in the area. Restaurant is quite small but with a good atmosphere. Had a mix of happy hour dishes as well as others from the main menu. Could not fault any of the dishes. Loved the sashimi and sushi as flavours were excellent. We also managed a couple of interesting ice cream... More

My husband chose this restaurant to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and we are both happy he did! We have been searching for a great sushi restaurant on the east side. This will definitely be one we frequent. It's is a small, quaint sushi restaurant; I would recommend rservations because of that. We arrived at 5pm and the place filled... More
