Ordered a selection of sushi and rolls, along with the salmon and avocado tempura. It was all incredibly flavoursome, and the tempura was light and delicious. Next time I'm going to order every tempura dish on the menu.

My friends and I went here for dinner and honestly almost cried when we tasted their sushi. It's the best we tasted in Plymouth! We ordered the black tiger prawn sushi rolls and soft shell crab rolls. The service was very attentive and polite, and the ambience was pleasant. We noticed they had a separate lunch menu. We enjoyed our... More

I've tried them all, this is the best sushi in Plymouth without a doubt. Really fresh and beautifully presented. It's not a fancy place and the prices are reasonable. If you can get over sitting on a plastic chair in a brightly lit restaurant then you'll enjoy some truly great sushi. Substance over style here, but it's worth it for... More

I've been visiting Goto for over 5 years and this place is always top of my list of restaurants to head to when I'm back in Plymouth. The sushi is great and they have a good range of hot dishes too.

The ambience needs some improvement as the restaurant feels like a budget cafeteria. It is also very cold with little or no heating. We dined there as two couples and we were the only people dining there on Friday night which didn't make for a great atmosphere. The food however is very good although we thought quite expensive for what... More

Anniversary meal in February, chose Japanese because we'd not eaten this style before and so scoured Tripadvisor for a decent restaurant. We were not dissapointed. Staff were gushingly polite and knowledgeable and their native dress gave a truly authentic feel. We chose from a set menu and the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. A very pleasant couple of... More

Best Japanese food I have had since last time I was in Japan, authentic and delicious. The sashimi was really fresh and the agedashi tofu and chicken yakitori were as good as any I have had in Japan. Can't wait to try more things on the menu.
