    The food was mediocre. They definitely need more wait staff. Our waitress was having a hard time keeping up with taking orders, delivering good and checking back.

    The amount of pride and care Goshi takes in every aspect of quality is rare. Most high-end restaurants value superficial ambience and presentation, while serving underwhelming food. It's crystal clear Goshi values the perfection of taste and quality over shallow values. For example, not even the mundane things like side salads are exempt. They only use the deep green lettuce parts, never the yellow or white parts. On the high side, their omakase nigiri is an indescribable quantum leap above anything else I have ever found outside of Japan. And bewilderingly, their prices are two-thirds to half of fair value. If you're looking for "dragon roll," find a fake Chinese-owned Japanese restaurant.

    We came to celebrate my husband's retirement with a special lunch. The food was excellent! We enjoyed a variety of chef's special fish. The chef showed us many interesting ingredients and explained what they were. Our waiter was terrific and as friendly as he was when he waited on us during our first visit a month ago. However, when we were leaving, the host ridiculed me for insulting the chef. The chef never gave any indication of insult. This reduced the enjoyment of what was supposed to be a special lunch visit.

    This is the best Japanese cuisine I have had in years. The menu is diverse and the food is brilliantly presented. We sat at the sushi bar and still had a server who provided excellent service and recommended lovely options. There is also a small parking lot as well as street parking in quaint downtown SLO. I highly recommend reservations be made, as this is a very popular place!

    Everyone in SLO and SB Counties knows Goshi is simply the pinnacle in Japanese cuisine in the Central Coast. It has been for a very long time. Some of my friends have been known to measure time in "Goshis", as in the length of time between visits. A Goshi experience happens only so often, but when it does, it is memorable

    We always liked Goshi. But our latest visit was a bit disappointing. Attaching a picture of the seaweed “salad”. It was exactly 2 bites at a price of $3 each.

    The menu changed so my favorite combo wasn’t on the menu but what I got was close and good. I miss the pre- shutdown days, the restaurant had a different vibe but I’m so glad they are still open. I’ll go again.
