I've been here four times for dinner and the service has always been mediocre but it's close to my office. Today service was exceptionally bad. So here is the last straw. I went in with a coworker for dinner around 7pm, we waited five minutes for the hostess while waitresses looked at us and didn't say a thing. When finally... More

I visited with my wife and 16 year old daughter. All of us really enjoyed the sushi. The spider roll was great. I thought the Ramen was just average. I ordered Pork Shoyu Ramen and the broth was nice but there was what looked like mini hot dogs floating in the broth which was strange. I'll visit again but will... More

I'm not sure why Godaiko is not showing up with higher ratings. I've always been pleased with the food and service. I've only had Sushi so I can only comment on that, but I like their Sushi very much. The Tuna Fusion Roll is probably the best roll I've had anywhere. The Spicy Tuna Roll plus also my favorite in...

The bento box was really good. Two kinds of tuna with the dipping sauce were very tender and flavorful. Small restaurant but high ceilings made conversation difficult.

Went here for dinner on my birthday and it was very delicious! I love sushi and they have some of the freshest around! Their Godaiko Roll is amazing and you have to have the tempura ice cream for dessert! My dad (not a sushi eater) enjoyed the beef fried rice (which was a huge serving) and we all started with...

We try to get to Godaiko a couple times a month. They have weekday specials that will fill you up and protect your pocketbook. Like the title says, we just like going there. The service always is with a smile and prompt. The dishes are presented nicely. Good parking, well lighted.
