This is a cozy small authentic Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. They carry the best green tea I ever had in Arizona, made with authentic Japanese Sencha powdered tea. The ice tea version is excellent and is the healthier green tea around. This time we had the Las Vegas roll seasoned with an eel sauce. and the Shimogamo roll, both... More

Shimogamo came highly recommended from a few friends that are in the tech industry. Their cohorts from Japan always come here - high praise indeed! The sushi is excellent and the service great. Definitely going back!

We go there often and it is the best place in Phoenix. Call ahead and get a reservation, it's a small place but you can get in. They get their fish fresh a few times a week. My wife and I have tried many other places around the city and this is the best. Yoshi, his wife, Zack, and Al... More

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

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
